It took them long enough, didn’t it?
Kyuss Lives! — a band featuring original Kyuss members John Garcia, Nick Oliveri and Brant Bjork along with guitarist Bruno Fevery — issued a statement today in response to the lawsuit filed by former band member (and current Queens of the Stone Age frontman) Joshua Homme.
The suit was filed over the band’s use of the Kyuss name.
“We are both shocked and saddened that our friend and one time band mate has chosen to file a lawsuit against us, especially after having positive discussions since our reformation,” said John Garcia and Brant Bjork in a statement.
“We look forward to resolving this private matter behind closed doors and moving forward with work on our new album and connecting with our amazing, loyal fans.”
I am surprised it took Josh so long to sue. My first thought when this band started touring was, “Hmm, I wonder how Josh feels about this, and if anyone’s going to sue?”
Yup — sucks being right all the time.
