So this is a bit of a surprise. It sounds like Sir Elton John is on the upcoming Queens of the Stone Age album. Dave Grohl (who of course is also on the album) hosted Chelsea Lately this evening and Elton himself was one of the guests. Dave then said the following:
“Recently, Elton and I recorded something together, something that people wouldn’t imagine the two of us doing together. Do you want to say what it was?”
Elton John answers:
“Well, I played on Queens of the Stone Age album.”
The two of them then discuss how Elton ended up in the studio with Queens for 3 hours playing piano. He also said “I love that band [Queens] so much and I love Them Crooked Vultures with Josh”.
Crazy. We are still waiting to learn the name of this album, its release date and who the band’s next drummer will be, but the number of awesome musicians who contributed to this album (Sir Elton, Dave Grohl, Nick Oliveri, Mark Lanegan, Trent Reznor, etc) certainly make for high expectations.
