Nick Oliveri Records Vocals for New Queens of the Stone Age Album


Story by Anne Erickson

Former Queens of the Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri is back with the band

Ex-Queens of the Stone Age bass player Nick Oliveri has recorded vocals for a track that’s on target to arrive on the group’s upcoming album, according to a post on Oliveri’s band Mondo Generator’s official Facebook page. In one fell swoop, Oliveri has also rejoined Kyuss, the psychedelic band he founded with Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme back in the ’80s.

“NEWS: Nick has re-joined Kyuss, and has recently recorded his vocals on a new Queens of the Stone Age song! Stay tuned,” states the post on Mondo Generator’s page.

Does this mean a permanent reunion between Oliveri and the guys of Queens of the Stone Age is on the horizon? Only time will tell. As the story goes, Oliveri was let go from Queens back in 2004 and later turned down an offer to reunite with Kyuss, who now tour under the name Kyuss Lives! He even ended up trying to sue Kyuss singer John Garcia and drummer Brant Bjork for using the band’s name when they reformed the group in 2010. It’s a unique circumstance, but things seem all smiles now, and chances are both Queens and Kyuss fans are stoked to have Oliveri back with the bands in some capacity.
