Kyuss Lives at Stubb's, Austin, TX Oct 2011 (more by Tim Griffin)
Chalk one up in the win column for Kyuss Lives! Well, sorta.
Former Kyuss guitarist Josh Homme and bassist Scott Reeder recently filed a federal lawsuit against their former bandmates John Garcia (vocals) and Brant Bjork (drums) to prohibit the latter duo from continuing to use the Kyuss Lives! moniker for their band.Former Kyuss members pursued the remainder of the gang who have been touring as Kyuss Lives! as of late. No word on if the band will change their name on the advice of the judge.
On Monday, Judge S. James Otero of the United States District Court Central District of California announced his verdict, which weighs somewhat in favor of Garcia and Bjork.
Essentially, Kyuss Lives! can use their name in concert, but not for recordings. "The Court will issue a preliminary injunction prohibiting Defendants from using the Kyuss Mark in any capacity unless the word 'Lives' follows the word 'Kyuss' in equally-prominent lettering," reads the verdict. "The Court will issue a preliminary injunction prohibiting Defendants from using the Kyuss Lives Mark in conjunction with any studio album, live album, or other audio recording. The Motion is denied, however, with respect to Plaintiffs' request that Defendants be enjoined from using the Kyuss Lives Mark in conjunction with concerts and live performances."
But this ruling doesn't fully protect Garcia and Bjork from running into further troubles down the road even if they use the Kyuss Lives! name solely for concerts. "It may be in Defendants' best interest to begin re-branding under a new name," the judge wrote. - [Rolling Stone]
Nick Oliveri of Kyuss Lives! at Terminal 5 (more by Greg Cristman)
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."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.
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.
Former Queens of the Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri has been charged with four felonies after a tense standoff with a S.W.A.T. team in L.A. last month -- and now faces up to 15 years in prison.Scott Reeder (Goatsnake/The Obsessed/Kyuss) recently filled in for Nick Oliveri on bass at four Kyuss Lives shows in Europe. It remains to be seen who plays with them for the upcoming North American tour with The Sword. Tickets are still available for the September 23rd show at Terminal 5. Updated Kyuss Lives dates are below.
As we previously reported, Oliveri was arrested on July 12th -- after a fight with his girlfriend escalated into a four-hour standoff with police. Oliveri was booked on felony domestic violence -- and after police searched his home, they found a fully-loaded rifle.
But that's not all they found -- according to the charging docs, police also found cocaine and methamphetamines.
Oliveri is charged with 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.
If convicted on all counts, the 39-year-old faces a max of 15 years in prison. -[TMZ]
