Original Queens of the Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri says he'll be joining his former bandmates on stage next month. 

He tells NME he's going to "play some bass and sing some songs" at the end of the group's upcoming Halloween concert in Los Angeles.  Oliveri says Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme invited him to do the encore, which he calls "a reunion, but not a reunion." 

Homme fired Oliveri from the band in 2004, but he's said they have remained friends over the past decade.  Last year Oliveri joined the group in the studio to record backing vocals on a track from their ...Like Clockwork album.  And back in April, he took the stage with them in Oregon to sing "You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar, but I Feel Like a Millionaire."
