Kyuss Reunites Without Josh Homme


Legendary stoner rock band Kyuss is reuniting without original guitarist and Queens of the Stone Age main man Josh Homme. The lineup includes vocalist John Garcia, bassist Nick Oliveri, and drummer Brant Bjork. Guitarist Bruno Fevery will be stepping in to replace Homme, and the band is calling themselves Kyuss Lives.

In an interview with Blabbermouth, Homme discussed the possibility of a Kyuss reunion, saying "The offers come in all the time. They're getting more and more expensive, and more and more elaborate. The money is crazy, but I've never been tempted – I don't really care about the money, I never have. That's not what Kyuss was about, so to punctuate the end of our sentence with that would be blasphemy...Kyuss has such a great history that it would be a total error. I like that nobody saw Kyuss, and that it was largely misunderstood. That sounds like a legend forming to me. I'm too proud of it to rub my dick on it."
