Raconteurs, Nick Oliveri — Angel’s Rock Report
The Raconteurs haven’t been that active the past few years as Jack White and Brendan Benson have been working on solo albums. But you’ll be able to relive the band’s last tour with a new DVD and Blu-ray called Live at Montreux 2008. Due out June 19th, the disc was filmed at the long-running Switzerland festival.
Ex-Queens of the Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri pleaded not guilty on Thursday to all five charges from his arrest last July after a police standoff in Hollywood. A pre-trial hearing has been set for April 13th. If convicted, Oliveri faces 15 years in jail.
Cops were called to Oliveri’s home in July by a neighbor who reported a “disturbance” between him and his girlfriend. A five-hour standoff with a SWAT team ensued before Oliveri let his girlfriend leave. He was booked for domestic assault, 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.
