NICK OLIVERI Involved In Auto Accident

Nick Oliveri (MONDO GENERATOR, ex-KYUSS, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE) was involved in a serious auto accident late Monday night (June 24). According to a posting on the MONDO GENERATOR Facebook page, "[Nick] was shaken up, and you can probably see why if you look at the car [see photos below], but it's nothing he won't recover from."

Oliveri was fired from QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE in 2004 but has reconnected with QOTSA mainman Josh Homme in recent years, with the latter even appearing on a MONDO GENERATOR track last year.

Oliveri and fellow ex-KYUSS members John Garcia (vocals) and Brant Bjork (drums) reunited for shows in 2011 under the KYUSS LIVES! banner, in which they were joined by guitarist Bruno Fevery. Oliveri has since left the band, which has changed its name to VISTA CHINO and is planning to release its full-length debut this fall.
