Zeppelin's John Paul Jones and Dave Grohl Working On New Music Together

A long-rumored collaboration between Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl, Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, and Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme has been confirmed, after multiple sources (like rock photographer Ross Halfin) confirmed that the trio are currently in the studio working on an album.

The collaboration has its roots back in 2005, when Dave Grohl spilled to Mojo that the next project he had coming up was an album with him drumming, Homme on guitar, and John Paul Jones on bass. Jones confirmed that he was working on new music this spring, but remained tight-lipped on what exactly he was working on.

“I’m working on some other music, which is more rock-based, with a couple of other people. We hope to be everywhere this summer.” When pressed for more information, the legendary bassist clammed up. “It’s a secret, actually,” he said. “I shouldn’t have even said that, you know? There are some exciting projects coming up, let’s put it that way."

When the album will actually be out, or what the group will be called, is up in the air. But for now at least, it seems like the group is for real.
