Former Queens Of The Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri says his request to rejoin the band on stage was denied by frontman Josh Homme.
"I saw [Queens Of The Stone Age] play in L.A.", Oliveri told UGO.com. "I was down there and I mentioned to them, 'Why don't I come up and do "Millionaire" or something, and sing it and not play bass?' [Homme] was like, 'Nah, I don't think that's a good idea yet'".
Oliveri, who left Queens Of The Stone Age in 2004, now plays bass for the newly reunited Kyuss renamed Kyuss Lives! Homme also once played in the band.
Despite the recent rebuff, Oliveri says he and Homme are on good terms.
"Whenever I'm in L.A. and [the Queens Of The Stone Age are] in L.A., I'm going to go see them play", Oliveri said. "I recorded in [Homme's] new studio and it's a nice place. It was great. He came down every day and said 'Hey.' It's been seven years; it's been some time. It's crazy to think that it's been that long. It's good to be able to see him and hang out with him. It's great."
