You may know him as the long haired bass player on the early Kyuss albums or as the mysterious Rex Everything in The Dwarves. Others will know him as one of the creative partners behind Queens Of The Stone Age and more recently the screaming front man of Mondo Generator. He is of course, Nick Oliveri. A man that should need no introduction to rock fans across the world.
Starting his musical career as a teenager with some friends from Palm Desert, California, Oliveri played bass and wrote a number of songs on the first two albums of desert rock pioneers Kyuss. The band would go on to establish them as a cult band worldwide and ensure high interest in all the members’ future projects.
One of those projects became Oliveri’s most successful commercial venture; it was of course Queens Of The Stone Age. Alongside song writing partner Josh Homme, Oliveri played on and co-wrote the bands two most critically acclaimed and successful albums ‘Rated R’ and ‘Songs For The Deaf’.
After a split with the band in 2004, he focused his energies on his own band Mondo Generator, while also being a part time member of The Dwarves and playing bass in the very occasional band Moistboyz alongside members of Ween and Butthole Surfers.
In support of his new solo album ‘Death Acoustic’, Nick Oliveri will tour Australia in October. Catch him in intimate, acoustic mode with special guests.
