Nick Oliveri Explains His Absence From Final Kyuss Lives! Shows
While his legal issues could also be to blame, Nick Oliveri has explained his absence from the final Kyuss Lives! shows in Australia with the following update:
“I am sorry to say that I wont be down in Australia for the last shows of the band Kyuss Lives! I am in the U.S. getting myself and my band Mondo Generator ready for SXSW in March. Also , working on a new Dwarves EP as well as a Project with Casey Chaos, Dave Lombardo, Gary Holt, and producer Ross Robinson. – Nick”
More info on the project he refers to above is available here. As previously reported, a legal dispute with former bandmates led to the imminent retirement of the Kyuss Lives! entity. The band members will soon be shifting their full focus to a new outfit by the name of Vista Chino.
