Kyuss Lives! Member Slams Josh Homme Over Legal Fight

(Classic Rock) Former Kyuss drummer Brant Bjork has slammed ex-guitarist Josh Homme for taking legal action against the Kyuss Lives project. The pair co-founded Kyuss in 1987 and were its combined driving force until Bjork left after their relationship broke down. The outfit split in 1995 after which Homme created Queens of the Stone Age.

In 2010 Bjork and singer John Garcia decided to reactivate the old band, and while Homme refused to take part he gave them his blessing. They toured as Kyuss Lives with no issues until discussions began about recording a new album. At that point the former guitarist became unhappy.

In March he filed a federal lawsuit alleging trademark infringement and consumer fraud, arguing that their name suggested a link to Homme which didn't exist. Bassist Scott Reeder then added his name to the legal action. But Bjork says the move is the result of Homme having his ego bruised and an extension of problems which arose in 20 years ago.
