Nick of QOTSA...

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by bryan bailey, Feb 12, 2004.


  1. Has been kicked out of the band.

    I heard he got kicked out for "partying too hard".

    I don't know if anyone else heard this, or knows how to spell his last name.

    Didn't hear that although I wouldn't be shocked if that ended up being the case. All I heard was that he left the band along with the new drummer. Whatever the deal is, it must be really serious. Nick was one of the main reasons that I liked QOTSA.

    I think some serious investigation is in order.

    Nick was one of the only real members with the guitarist being the other one. Everyone else was just in and out.

    Six Shooter, and Millionaire were two of my favorites. :bawl:

    Peace

    If he's out I'd say Queens is done. Like you said, Josh and Nick were the only real members. So half of the band gone, that can't go on. (Looks at the Who and sighs)

    I don't know if I believe this. Considering they are called Stoner Rock, getting kicked out for partying to hard doesn't sound reasonable.

    Ive heard them say that they dont like the title.

    They make it a point that they are not big time drug users and dont use drugs to/when writing.

    Peace

    Nick Oliveri is a bad man, he needs to keep his pants on though. If he's gone that band is finished, I really like his playing. No one knows is a great tune he has some silly little runs in there that are giving me fits.

    Let's hope it was a lie. I think that Josh Homme would continue without him anyway. QOTSA is just the natural evolution in Josh's career after Kyuss disbanded. Nick Oliveri was only one of the bassists back then, but not on what I consider to be their best work. Josh writes all the tunes, and the best ones are when he sings anyway, so it's all good. But Nick is great, so hopefully it is a lie.

    Yeah I figured. Usually people who are really good at "Stoner Rock" or "Psycadellic (sp?) Rock" don't use drugs/don't use drugs while writing. If they do, they usually just play one note and let it ring out for seven minutes. ;)
     
  14. Uh, take a look at the forum's. It sure sounds like he was kicked out/leaving/whatever.

    I heard this Stoner Metal band but I didn't know there name. They sounded fantastic. Very thick sounding which is the cool thing about Stoner Metal, screaming singer which fit pretty well. But every song started out with a little snippit from a movie or something about pot. It became annoying. But when the music kicked in, I was like... ohhhh yeah. :cool:
