Well now, this is turning out to be quite the reunion. Earlier this month, it was announced that Dave Grohl would reunite with Queens of the Stone Age by playing drums on their upcoming album. Now, there’s been a new addition. Ex-Queens bassist Nick Oliveri has also jumped on board and will reunite with his old pals.
“NEWS: Nick has re-joined Kyuss, and has recently recorded his vocals on a new Queens of the Stone Age song! Stay tuned.”
As noted above, Oliveri has also rejoined Kryuss, the rock band that Josh Homme and Oliveri first played in in the early ’90s.
Oliveri got kicked off QOTSA in 2004, when Homme allegedly discovered that he had abused his girlfriend (it seems like Homme is ready to forgive and forget though). Last year Oliveri got into some legal troubles when he was caught in the middle of a five-hour standoff with a Los Angeles S.W.A.T. team over a domestic incident. He was able to avoid jail time, but was still slapped with a sentence of 52 weeks of anger management and 200 hours of community service.
Besides Oliveri and Grohl, Trent Reznor will also appear on the upcoming record.
