Nick Oliveri, former Queens of the Stone Age / Kyuss musician and current frontman of Mondo Generator, was involved in a serious auto accident late Monday night (June 24). Mondo Generator released the news via their Facebook page late last night (June 26), offering their "well-wishes and hang in there's."
Queens of the Stone Age
While six years between releases may be a long time to wait for a new Queens of the Stone Age disc, it certainly didn’t deter music fans from lining up to buy the album as soon as it came out. QOTSA’s sixth studio album ‘…Like Clockwork’ debuted in the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart this week, resulting in a huge milestone for the band as their first No. 1 disc.
Queens of the Stone Age have been lighting things up since the release of their new album ‘…Like Clockwork’ on June 4, and now fans can mark their calendars for a newly announced leg of tour dates that kick off Sept. 10 in Toronto at the Air Canada Center with stops in U.S. cities like Detroit, Nashville and Tulsa, Okla.
Three days after the release of their sixth studio album, Queens of the Stone Age played '...Like Clockwork' in its entirety to a sold-out crowd at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple. As an album that has received high critical praise, it was a chance of a lifetime for 1,200 screaming fans to see QOTSA tear through brand new materi
Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age recently made quite a memorable entrance to a party in the Hollywood Hills, in a manner of speaking. The frontman was allegedly run off the road by an out of control Range Rover only to end up smashing into a fence, literally crashing an outdoor party.
Welcome back Queens of the Stone Age and all of their talented friends! It's been six years since the band last released 'Era Vulgaris,' and it's apparent that mastermind frontman Josh Homme hasn't lost his touch for fuzzed out amps blasting guitar rock. But the band's '…Like Clockwork' album also shows another side with a handful of moody, introspective piano-driven tracks that just add to the musical palette.
When we last visited Queens of the Stone Age, they were continuing their animated video series with a brutal bar brawler meeting his maker via an on-speeding vehicle in the 'Keep Your Eyes Peeled' clip. Moving forward, the focus now shifts to the driver of the car for the 'If I Had a Tail' video (seen above) and the series closes out with the promo for the current single 'My God Is the Sun' (seen below).
Queens of the Stone Age are extending their fascination with animation as they continue to roll out new music from their '… Like Clockwork' album. The band began with the unnerving video for 'I Appear Missing,' followed with a similarly bloody 'Kalopsia' clip and are now offering a full-on brawl for the 'Keep Your Eyes Peeled' video.
