According to an article in British newspaper The Daily Mail, former Fab Four member Paul McCartney was interested in being in the successful supergroup Them Crooked Vultures.
The band of course now features bassist John Paul Jones.
After the Grammy awards last year, Paul had dinner with drummer Dave Grohl and the conversation turned to Grohl’s new project.
“We went out for a bite to eat afterwards and Dave told me he was starting this band with Josh [Homme]. I asked him who was playing bass, and he rather sheepishly told me he’d approached John. So you read it here first; Paul McCartney was nearly the bass player in Them Crooked Vultures,” said McCartney, before admitting “Actually, I’m sure it wouldn’t have happened but it’s an interesting project.”
