By the way - Them Crooked Vultures is a freakin' great album. Reviews in the big rock magazines seem weirdly timid about it, somehow (Rolling Stone called it 'alternate universe Led Zeppelin fan-fiction', and Pitchfork's retards-in-residence seem irritated that there's so much of it.) It's a collaboration between John Paul Jones, Dave Grohl and Josh Homme, with songs in a wide range of flavors, but with a lot of 'crankability' throughout. I think they did a great job of acknowledging the last few decades' best moments in noisy, brainy guitar rock, without making the album itself a backward look. I highly recommend it.
