Watch Former Queens of the Stone Age Bassist Nick Oliveri Reunite with Band in Portland
By Kevin Rutherford
After nearly a decade away from the band, Nick Oliveri is slowly re-familiarizing himself with Queens of the Stone Age.
The rock bassist performed with his former band live for the first time in 10 years last night, Rolling Stone reports. The rockers were performing in Portland, Ore., when Oliveri appeared onstage to sing lead vocals on “You Think I Ain’t Worth a Dollar, But I Feel Like a Millionaire” from the band’s 2002 junior release Songs for the Deaf during the set’s encore.
Fan-shot video of the performance can be found below.
Oliveri was fired from Queens of the Stone Age in 2004, with the reason seemingly his tendency to party– a lot. Since then, his prominent project has been the metal/punk act Mondo Generator.
However, he reconnected with the band last year, singing backing vocals on “If I Had a Tail” from 2013’s Like Clockwork.
Speaking of Portland, Queens frontman Josh Homme has been revealed as a guest star on Portlandia this season, playing what network IFC calls “a disappointing gay man.”
