As millions of Americans tune to CNN, NBC and Fox News to get the latest on the election, about 1.6 million fans around the world on Facebook got some startling news on their feeds today- Dave Grohl is back with Queens of the Stone Age! A photo that was posted just an hour ago to the Queens Facebook page shows a mixing board with “Dave” labeled above “Drums”. Check it out here!
Looks like Dave just couldn’t get enough after working with Josh Homme and Alain Johannes in Them Crooked Vultures. Today’s photo announcement doesn’t surprise us, but we have to admit our excitement is tempered by a little bit of sadness. It seems that Joey Castillo, who has been drumming with Queens since Grohl originally left in 2002, will be out of the lineup. Joey had become a fan favorite over the years for his aggressive style of play. Regardless, most fans will find today’s news to be the most exciting thing they hear all day.
