There is never a dull moment when it comes to former Queens of the Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri. The musician has not only rejoined Kyuss Lives!, but he also has contributed vocals to the upcoming QOTSA album.
They said they wanted to resolve their issues with their former bandmates "behind closed doors" before getting to work on their new album -- and it looks like the members of Kyuss Lives! got half of what they wanted from a federal court ruling handed down Monday (August 13).
In a new interview, bassist Nick Oliveri has revealed that he has walked away from Kyuss Lives!, while also commenting on his current legal situation stemming from a standoff with an L.A. SWAT team last summer.
Last weekend, news that former Kyuss members Josh Homme (currently of Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal and Them Crooked Vultures) and Scott Reeder had brought a lawsuit against original Kyuss members John Garcia and Brant Bjork, who have been touring as Kyuss Lives!
