In addition to lining up a slew of European festival dates, Them Crooked Vultures (featuring Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones, and the Foo Fighter’s Dave Grohl in a mindblowing lineup that makes ‘ah, it’s pretty good’ music) have set aside a date in their harried schedule to perform an act of musical charity.

It turns out our little hunch about the supergroup, Them Crooked Vultures, was right on! The super rock group formed by Foo Fighters‘ Dave Grohl, Led Zeppelin‘s John Paul Jones, and Queens of the Stone Age‘s Josh Homme unveiled themselves at the Lollapalooza‘s after-show and fans were not disappointed!

Yes, John Paul Jones played Zeppelin classics with Ben Harper in two separate performances in 2007, and yes, Robert Plant jammed on some of the band’s tunes with Alison Krauss at last year’s festival. But let’s face it, there are Zeppelin-at-Bonnaroo rumors every year. Sadly, the dream of seeing Zeppelin headline Bonnaroo may be nothing more than a fantasy, especially considering Robert Plant’s informal announcement that he will be focusing on other performances for the next two years and recent comments from Jimmy Page’s manager, Peter Mensch:
