Them Crooked Vultures are a {{supergroup}} formed in 2009, consisting of the following members:

* [[Music/{{Kyuss}} Josh]] [[Music/QueensOfTheStoneAge Homme]], guitars and vocals
* [[Music/LedZeppelin John Paul Jones]], bass, keyboards, other instruments and backing vocals
* [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Dave]] [[Music/FooFighters Grohl]], drums, percussion and backing vocals

When playing live, they are joined by Alain Johannes on guitar, bass, keyboards and backing vocals.

Their debut SelfTitledAlbum appeared in November 2009, receiving good reviews and decent sales. Their style can roughly be summed up as a {{Retraux}} of [[TheSeventies seventies]] HardRock, or a cross between QOTSA and Led Zep.
