I’m assuming he won’t, because he faces up to 15 years in prison for his little stunt, so that’s more than the time he’s spent being in that band. Yes, sensationalist title, slightly misleading. Blow me.
“Former Queens of the Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri has been charged with four felonies after a tense standoff with a S.W.A.T. team in L.A. last month — and now faces up to 15 years in prison.
After a fight with his girlfriend escalated into a four-hour standoff with police. Oliveri was booked on felony domestic violence — and after police searched his home, they found a fully-loaded rifle. But that’s not all they found — according to the charging docs, police also found cocaine and methamphetamines.
Oliveri is charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance with a firearm, 2 counts of possession of a controlled substance, and one misdemeanor count of resisting, obstructing or delaying a peace officer.If convicted on all counts, the 39-year-old faces a max of 15 years in prison.“

That sucks, I always liked Nick and I really wanted him back in QOTSA. Then again, when you pull a stunt that sounds straight out of a 90s buddy cop film, what would you expect?
Let’s hope he doesn’t get the maximum sentence. Can someone get him Lindsay Lohan’s attorney?
Aren’t we all a bit stupid at times? You just do something and then get your stupid on. It just happens. And I can’t blame you, for I write for a stupid blog myself with my fellow stupid writers.
bassists people do really stupid stuff though. Stuff that is so immensely stupid that you can’t do anything but shake your head and start pointing fingers. Two of those stories are topic to this week’s edition of Weak Recap.
But don’t take my word for it. Make the jump to read Dose of Metal’s recapitulation of the past week. Someone’s got to do it and point fingers.
Nick Oliveri, former Queens of the Stone Age bassist, is crazy. That’s not a secret anymore, is it? But who would have thought that he’s a freaking super-villain?
What the hell am I talking about? Well, apparently Oliveri got into a standoff with a S.W.A.T. team at his home in Los Angeles, that lasted four hours. Two of those four hours, he held his girlfriend as a hostage and, as police later found out, was armed with a high powered riffle that was fully loaded. This sounds like a script for a fucking Bruce Willis film, doesn’t it?
According to TMZ, he struck his girlfriend the day before during an argument. A day later, she came back to Oliveri’s home to get her stuff and move out, which resulted in another argument that led to the scenario described above.
“Oliveri was booked on felony domestic violence” and “has since been released after posting $100,000 bail.”
Someone’s clearly trying to battle Michael Todd for the Craziest Bassist World Championship.
Time for some headlines, folks, and trust me, they’ll bore you to death.
Queensrÿche (pictured above… i think… it’s not the 80s, is it?) are talking about their new album and, you guessed it, it’s “going in another direction.” If I had a blowjob for every time I heard that…
Lars Ulrich is an actor now. A photo of him on the set pictured and I can only describe it with three letters: LOL
Nevermore are embarking on a clinic tour around Serbia, Italy and Greece. I wish Paramore would do the same. I heard Serbian laws for rape are pretty forgiving.
Nick Oliveri is not working with Homme yet. He squashed those rumors in a recent interview. Too bad the one spreading them was himself.
