nick josh reunite Nick Oliveri reunites with Queens of the Stone Age

This new Queens of the Stone Age record is becoming quite the star-studded affair. Dave is drumming, Trent is “helping,” and now ex-QOSTA guitarist Nick Oliveri reveals that he “recently recorded his vocals” for a new song.

Oliveri’s participation comes as a surprise considering he was famously booted from the band in 2004 and hasn’t worked with Josh Homme since then. Then there’s the whole lawsuit, which Homme filed against Oliveri and the rest of Kyuss Lives! in March 2012. But I guess when you’re trying to make a redux of Songs For the Deaf, anything and everyone goes.

Kicking Oliveri out was the worst thing for this band. I still like the 2 albums they did after he was out but not nearly as much as I like the albums he is featured on. Bring back Nick!

Creatively and commercially, Queens has not done well since Deaf. My guess is that Homme scrapped the material he’s been working on for the past six years and is starting over with with Grohl and Oliveri. Hard rock is a difficult sell these days, as the tepid response to Soundgarden’s comeback album indicates. Josh will have to pull out every trick in the book to survive more than a month in the Billboard 200.

Unless your name is Adele, most everything is a tough sell these days. It would be short-sighted to believe that a perceived change in creative direction would be at the root of any sort of sales shortfall or commercial hardship. There are many other factors contributing to the struggle these days – piracy being a big one.
