Bass guitar player John Paul Jones has praised Dave Grohl's ability on the drum kit.

The pair are working with Josh Homme under the banner of Them Crooked Vultures and are touring the UK in support of their debut album.

Grohl, who plays electric guitar in the Foo Fighters, has gone back behind the drum kit for this new band, harking back to his days in Nirvana.

Speaking to The Skinny, Jones commented: "Dave is just a killer drummer - probably one of the best drummers around at the moment."

He added that he jumped at the chance of touring and recording with a band again after Led Zeppelin's much-rumoured reunion failed to materialise.

Jones and electric guitar player Jimmy Page had considered forming a new band after Robert Plant ruled himself out of a reformation, but they could not agree on a singer.

Them Crooked Vultures kicked off their UK tour in Plymouth last night and will perform in Portsmouth this evening.
