Nick Oliveri is an American heavy metal and alt-rock musician hailing from Los Angeles, California. Born in 1971, he is perhaps best known as the rather crazy, epic-beard-owning former bassist of Queens of the Stone Age, though he also made a name for himself performing with Kyuss and Dwarves too.
As well as bass, Oliveri shreds guitar and lays down vocals too, and is the leader of his own project band Mondo Generator, with whom he’s released music since 1997. Of course, Oliveri has tried his hand as a solo act too, and in 2014 releases his latest personal effort ‘Leave Me Alone’. Catch him touring the UK throughout June!
