Oliveri calls in favours for solo record

Former Kyuss and Queens Of The Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri is to release a star-studded new solo album in September.

Oliveri worked with a host of special guests including Phil Campbell of Motorhead, Ween’s Dean Ween, Stephen Hass from Moistboyz and Bruno Fevery from Vista Chino.

He also roped in Mondo Generator’s Mike Pygmie and Marc Diamond from The Dwarves to help with the album, which is called Leave Me Alone and was recorded at Thunder Underground Studios in California.

It is his first full electric solo effort, following two acoustic solo albums.

Stef wrote close to 5,000 stories during his time as assistant online news editor and later as online news editor between 2014-2016. An accomplished reporter and journalist, Stef has written extensively for a number of UK newspapers and also played bass with UK rock favourites Logan. His favourite bands are Pixies and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Stef left the world of rock'n'roll news behind when he moved to his beloved Canada in 2016, but he started on his next 5000 stories in 2022.
