Uncontrollably rowdy behavior, copious drug use, and an overtly wild rock 'n roll lifestyle may have gotten Nick Oliveri ousted from Queens of the Stone Age, but its the fuel which fires his latest offering from his former side but now main project Mondo Generator just the same. DEAD PLANET is the title to the tumultuous affair, recorded at friend Dave Grohl's home studio no less.
