When it was announced the Dave Grohl had rejoined Queens Of The Stone Age, some commenters theorized/joked that maybe Nick Oliveri would be next to rejoin the band. Considering the apparent acrimony after Josh Homme booted Oliveri in 2004 (and especially after Oliveri was charged with numerous criminal counts in 2011), that seemed … unlikely. At best. Well, never say never. According to a post on the Facebook wall of Oliveri’s project Mondo Generator, the ex-QOTSA bassist has recorded vocals on the forthcoming QOTSA album. He’s also rejoined Kyuss! Per MG’s Facebook update:

NEWS: Nick has re-joined Kyuss, and has recently recorded his vocals on a new Queens of the Stone Age song! Stay tuned.

“Stay tuned”? Huh. Can a full-scale getting-the-band-back-together reunion be far behind? Or … what? Stay tuned!
