The Queens Of The Stone Age star, who played guitar for Kyuss until the band broke up in the year 1995 is embroiled in a legal battle for this incident.
Homme and also another former ban member Scott Reeder, together have done so towards John Garcia and also the drummer Brant Bjork, flying accusations around of
“trademark infringement and consumer fraud”
For attempting to trademark the bands name without them. The pair says in a statement,
”It sucks. To think we went to a meeting in January solely to help them with their request to continue Kyuss Lives! With open arms, we made every attempt to help them continue Kyuss Lives! respectfully. Only to discover while they looked us in the eye, Kyuss Lives! management and band had filed federal documents in 2011 in an attempt to steal the name Kyuss. This is desperately what we were trying to avoid. It’s a sad day for us and for John – but most of all for the fans. What a needless mess.”
