Nick Oliveri owns 47% of the Queens of the Stone Age name

Posted by on October 12, 2015

Though Nick Oliveri joined Queens of the Stone Age on stage back in 2014, a full scale reunion with the band doesn’t seem likely. In a recent interview with Hot Press, Oliveri discussed a technical detail that might be impeding the holding up the whole situation.

Said Oliveri:

“I figured out the reason why there probably won’t be a reunion of Queens is that I own 47 percent of the name. Why would you let somebody come back that had that? I’d have to sign away that 47 percent and I’d be a hired gun. I really don’t want to be a hired gun just to be in the band again.”

Speaking of guns (ahem,) Oliveri was involved in a stand off with a SWAT team in 2011, but cut a deal to avoid jail time. Despite these legal troubles, Oliveri did some backing vocals on the last Queens of the Stone Age album …Like Clockwork, which came out in 2013.
