Hey GMC,

Just wondering if anyone else has heard about this new supergroup?

They apparently played the Metro in Chicago last night, but it is proving hard to get a listen to these guys. "These guys" being Dave Grohl, Josh Homme and some guy named John Paul Jones from this little group that was big back in the 70's.... you probably never heard of them... I think they were called Led Zeppelin or something wink.gif wink.gif tongue.gif cool.gif I'm really anxious to have a listen, I mean it's Grohl, Homme and John Paul Jones!!! Talk about some amazing musicianship. I am waiting with bated breath to hear something by them. There is some stuff on youtube but it's horrible quality. Apparently an album is due in October.

Don't eat the bait! Can't hook the big star acts if you eat all the bait!

I'd be interested to see this show just because it seems like an amazing lineup. I wonder if youtube has any footage of it yet.

edit: yep, terrible quality and all! Not linking any here sad.gif

Since I fish, there is no other spelling except bait wink.gif wink.gif But thanks for "catching" ... I fixed it smile.gif

And yes the youtube stuff was pretty poor so didn't bother to link as well. But am hoping that something emerges soon.

Yes, you would be required to go and provide a complete and detailed record of events smile.gif

Youtube finally has some tidbits from the band. Not very long videos mind you but I think very promising...




This one is an official release from the band and was the last song performed at the Chicago show.

Ain't it though smile.gif

There is a lot of footage of them on youtube now but not all of it is great quality. The song Gunmen is just awesome but can't seem to find a decent video to share.

OK seriously this album is AMAZING!!! I haven't stopped listening to it. Hands down best album of 2009 and one of the best albums to drop in a very long time.

It's been a very long time since I've felt so strongly about an album so I apologize for my enthusiasm. I know not everyone will feel the same. But I just love this album.
