Watch Nick Oliveri Join QOTSA Onstage and Sing ‘Millionaire’ in Portland

Queens Of The Stone Age, Music

 

Oliveri Homme PortlandMany Queens of the Stone Age fans have spent the better part of  the last decade hoping for a reunion with the band’s original bassist Nick Oliveri, who was fired by Josh Homme back in 2004, and resulted in a some significant changes for the group. Though the separation seemed to be acrimonious for quite some time, reports started to show up around 2010 that Oliveri and Homme were at least in speaking terms again – the bassist even asked if he could sing on a QOTSA gig that year, but Homme said it “wasn’t a good idea yet”.

In 2012, a reunion of sorts actually took place, as Oliveri contributed some vocals to QOTSA’s latest album …Like Clockwork. Last night, in Portland, things came full circle, with Oliveri being  invited onstage to sing You Think I Ain’t Worth a Dollar But I Fell Like a Millionaire, a full ten years after leaving the band. Watch footage of the performance below:

(And from a different angle):

One thing that helped the event take place was the fact that Moistboyz opened for QOTSA that night, and Oliveri just so happens to play bass for them. Earlier in the set, Homme even dedicated Better Living Through Chemistry to the former bassist.

    Games that have a label of M (for mature) are not for
    everyone; you should have rules in your house related to who can play what games.
    You start in a set of a beautiful island where your peaceful village is
    surrounded by beaches and woods until the enemies known as the Black – Guard led
    by Lieutenant Hammerman invades your island.
