Countdown to ACL 2009: Them Crooked Vultures

A few things I have realized in the past 24 hours:

A) I am a lisper!

B) If Dave Grohl were a Biblical character, surely he would be Lazarus. Them Crooked Vultures is, what – his fifth band? This man doesn’t stop!

Anyway, Them Crooked Vultures were (“was?” Help me out, copy editor) just added to the lineup at this year’s ACL, so I decided to investigate on YouTube. Here they are in Belgium, playing a “surprise show” at the Pukkelpop Festival.

I’ll be honest – I’m intrigued. Not FLOORED (yet), but I’ll take a little more. If Them Crooked Vultures sound a little Led Zeppelin-like to you, that’s because John Paul Jones – bassist for Led Zeppelin* – is in the band. Yowza.

Them Crooked Vultures are also playing an after party at Stubbs, and you can get tickets here.

*Opinion poll. Favorite Led Zeppelin song? My first album was Houses of the Holy, so D’yer Mak’er shall always be mine. So sexy.

Your fave?
