Dave Grohl won’t be touring with Queens of the Stone Age even though he plays drums on their new record, he told CBS Local.

Grohl also said in the interview that he expects Them Crooked Vultures, his band with Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones to play together again.

“We’ve talked about it, I know that someday we’ll get back together and do stuff, because we love playing with each other,” Grohl explained.

Grohl recently described Queens of the Stone Age as “the baddest rock and roll band in the world”. Speaking to the BBC, he said: "With Queens of the Stone Age, like, there were no boundaries with that band, there were no limits with them, it was like if you did something insane, you’d do more, if you did something that seemed too ridiculous– and honestly the new Queens of the Stone Age record, I’m playing drums on that, and I’ll do something so completely ridiculous, I’ll just, like, 'There’s no way that that Josh isn’t going to let me do that', and he’ll say, 'Do that for 45 seconds, over and over again, that’s become, like, part of the song, that is a big part of the song,' and that’s the way they work."
