Former Queens of the Stone Age
bassist and current Mondo Generator
frontman Nick Oliveri
was involved in what seems as a rather serious car accident late Monday night (June 24).
Oliveri's current band announced the news on the Official Facebook Page
with a set of accompanying photos, sending their frontman "many many well-wishes and hang in there's."
Just a glimpse at the photos is enough to demonstrate how serious the crash was, so it comes as a great relief that Oliveri is reportedly just "shaken up,"
which is "nothing he won't recover from."
"We're sending many many well-wishes and hang in there's to Nick,"
reads the official announcement
. "He was involved in an auto accident late Monday night. He was shaken up, and you can probably see why if you look at the car, but it's nothing he won't recover from. Get well soon brother!"
Oliveri was fired from QOTSA by frontman Josh Homme
in 2004, but has reconciled with his former band and even gave contributions on their latest record "...Like Clockwork
." The album dropped on June 4 via Matador Records, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart
with 91,000 copies sold in the US within the first week.
