Nick Oliveri of Kyuss Lives! at Terminal 5 (more by Greg Cristman)
Kyuss Lives

Looks like former Kyuss members Scott Reeder and Josh Homme aren't too pleased with the recently reformed Kyuss Lives!. Homme & Reeder have filed a lawsuit against Kyuss Lives! alleging trademark infringement and consumer fraud. Their joint statement reads:

"It sucks. To think we went to a meeting in January solely to help them with their request to continue Kyuss Lives! With open arms, we made every attempt to help them continue Kyuss Lives! respectfully. Only to discover while they looked us in the eye, Kyuss Lives! management and band had filed federal documents in 2011 in an attempt to steal the name Kyuss."
This is desperately what we were trying to avoid. It's a sad day for us and for John - but most of all for the fans. What a needless mess.
In related news, Kyuss & Kyuss Lives! member Nick Oliveri had his day in court regarding the little incident he had with the SWAT team. According to TMZ, the bassist faces "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". Oliveri has pleaded not-guilty on all counts and will head to court in middle-April to face sentencing of up to 15 years in prison.

Nick walked right by me before the show. The years have not been kind.

Sounds like Kyuss Lives want to takeover the Kyuss name. They should have been grateful with what they had.
