Paul McCartney A Crooked Vulture?

In the holy shit department, here is an article verbatim from ClassicRock.com:

Sir Paul McCartney was very nearly a member of Them Crooked Vultures.

The Beatles legend told The Daily Mail that it all came about when he went out for a meal with Dave Grohl after the Grammy Awards last year.

“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 [Paul Jones].

“So you read it here first: Paul McCartney was nearly the bass player in Them Crooked Vultures.”

I am glad it's JPJ but shit, that would have been interesting!

I'm with you. As much as I like Paul McCartney and his songwriting, I think JPJ carries quite a bit of the mystique and talent of the TCV. Given the other members of the band, I'd rather hear overtones of Black Dog and Misty Mountain Hop than Band on the Run or Live and Let Die. Also, I think McCartney's mere presence would have overshadow the project.
