FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl, who recently confirmed that he laid down the drum tracks for QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE's forthcoming sixth album, told CBS Local in a new interview that he won't be touring with the band in support of the record.

Grohl stepped in to play on the album, which is expected in early 2013, following the departure of Joey Castillo. Grohl last played drums for QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE on 2002's "Songs For The Deaf".

Grohl and QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE mainman Josh Homme also teamed up in 2009 with LED ZEPPELIN bassist John Paul Jones in the band THEM CROOKED VULTURES.

Jones had played on the FOO FIGHTERS' 2005 album "In Your Honor" (playing mandolin on "Another Round" and piano on "Miracle"), and at the 2008 Grammy Awards, he conducted an orchestra that backed the FOO FIGHTERS on their performance of "The Pretender". But Grohl told CBS Local that actually being in a band with the man meant a great deal to him.

"It was one of the highlights of my life when John Paul Jones said, 'Now I've been in two great bands,'" Grohl said. "That was a huge deal for me!"

Grohl, who recently directed his first documentary, "Sound City", is confident that THEM CROOKED VULTURES will become active again. "We've talked about it," he said. "I know that someday we'll get back together and do stuff, because we love playing with each other."

Grohl recently told BBC Radio One about recording the sixth QUEENS album, "There were no boundaries with that band, there were no limits with them . . . I'll do something so completely ridiculous, I'll just, like, 'There's no way that that Josh is going to let me do that,' and he'll say, 'Do that for forty-five seconds, over and over again, that's become, like, part of the song, that is a big part of the song,' and that's the way they work."
