The embattled ex-QOTSA bassist Nick Oliveri has managed to walk away from a severe car crash with only minor injuries. As you can see in the below photo taken from the prang, things could have been pretty serious, but an update from his current band Mondo Generator assures us “it’s nothing he won’t recover from.”
The crash took place on the evening of Monday, 24th June and at this point in time it’s not known what caused the incident. His fellow band mates were quick to send their “well-wishes and hang in theres” as they informed fans of Oliveri’s latest mishap.
Here’s to hoping there’s nothing illegal about the crash. Oliveri is currently serving a 3-year felony probation sentence with 200 hours of community service and one year of anger management after an altercation with his girlfriend led to a tense stand off with police. The situation ended peacefully but upon entering the residence, police found cocaine, methamphetamine and a fully loaded rifle.
Check out the photos below as well as the message from the band.
“We’re sending many many well-wishes and hang in there’s to Nick! He was involved in an auto accident late Monday night. He was shaken up, and you can probably see why if you look at the car, but it’s nothing he won’t recover from. Get well soon brother!”
