Gig Of The Week: Kyuss Lives!
WHO: Kyuss Lives!
WHERE: Manchester Academy
WHEN: Tuesday, April 5
The eagerly anticipated near total return of desert rock pioneers Kyuss has meant most of the UK tour is totally sold out. This date, though, is an exception. But it’s an opportunity to see vocalist John Garcia, bassist Nick Oliveri and drummer Brant Bjork back together.
In the absence of Josh Homme, the guitarist is Bruno Fevery. And if you’re disappointed at the fact that Homme isn’t there, this is what Oliveri has to say:
“I have nothing bad to say about Josh — he’s extremely intelligent, very smart, a great guitar player, great songwriter, a great vocalist — he is a bad-ass, there is no question, and I love him dearly but he is busy with his own thing. He has Queens Of The Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures. He’s a father, a businessman and even if we asked him to do it, I don’t think he’d say yes, so I don’t want to set myself up for a big fat no which is 99.9 percent what he would say.”
