And The Hammer Of Justice Falls On Former QOTSA Bassist Nick Oliveri
COCAINE IS A HELLUVA DRUG!! It was once said that when you hit rock bottom, there's no way to go but up. Well not so much for former Queens Of The Stone Age bassist Nick O, hes going down for at least oh, 15 years minimum.
After a 4 hour standoff with police in L.A. last month, Nicky O. was arrested on 4 felonies, including but not limited to, two counts of possession of a controlled substance with a firearm, two counts of possession of a controlled substance and one misdemeanor count of resisting, obstructing or delaying a peace officer. Nicky O. had taken his girlfriend hostage with a fully loaded shotgun and a fistful of drugs after a fight escalated and she was about to ditch his ass. He eventually let her go, but continued the stand off with police for another 2 hours. Children, this is a HORRIBLE way to keep your illegals low key, but I guess all females have that ability to drive a man insane? Not the best way to keep your pimp hand strong and now Nicky O. will have lavish life of full payback on the yard. I feel obligated to insert disclaimer, 'Innocent till proven guilty' here. Only if he is convicted of all charges will he face the full term. We all know how celebrities and legal problems work out! Nicky O. was let go from Queens of the Stone Age in 2004.
