Dave Grohl's Musical Blind Date

Dave Grohl formed his latest band through a musical "blind date".

The Foo Fighters singer got the other members of supergroup Them Crooked Vultures - Queens Of The Stone Age guitarist Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones - to meet him at a medieval banquet to see if they could work together.

He said: "It was weird, the blind date, but I was aware of Josh's music obviously - I couldn't imagine it not working."

Former Nirvana drummer Dave organised the meet up at Medieval Times - a themed night in the US with lots of meat and a jousting show - for his birthday.

Josh added the setting was perfect, as it meant they could all relax.

He quipped: "What was good about Medieval Times was that there was no risk of pretension. It broke the ice. With a lance."

John recently admitted he was happy that plans for his former band to reunite permanently - without singer Robert Plant - fell through as it meant he could work with Them Crooked Vultures.

He said: "Jimmy Page and I rehearsed a bit with Jason Bonham and we couldn't really agree on singers and that fell by the wayside. Then this came along and to be honest, I'm really happy."
