Former Kyuss Members Couldn't Afford To Fight Josh Homme Over Name
The Queens Of The Stone Age mainman had previously offered no objection to the title Kyuss Lives when the pair reunited in 2010, but became unhappy when plans to record new music moved forward. The result is that new album Peace has been released under the Vista Chino's title – but Garcia says the entire process was "unnecessary."
Garcia tells Antiquiet: "Brant and I put up a pretty good fight. But in the United States, sometimes those with the most money win. We decided it was worth the initial fight; but it got to the point where we thought it would be much better to stop.
"The lawyers, the bills, took a little bit too much of a toll on us, and we said, 'Look, we're going to change our name.'" more on this story
