Though he's drumming on their new record, Dave Grohl told New York's 101.1 WCBS-FM that he won't be touring with Queens of the Stone Age when they hit the road behind the upcoming album. But Them Crooked Vultures, his group with QOTSA leader Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, may tour again. "It was one of the highlights of my life when John Paul Jones said, 'Now I've been in two great bands.' That was a huge deal for me!" said Grohl. "We've talked about it, I know that someday we'll get back together and do stuff, because we love playing with each other."

Trent Reznor and former bassist Nick Oliveri are also contributing to the forthcoming Queens of the Stone Age record.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
