Reeder reunited with former Kyuss singer John Garcia to form Unida, a stoner rock band which only released one full-length album before running into legal problems.
In 1996, Reeder just missed becoming the new bass player for the popular band Tool, the reason rumoured to be his preference of finger-style bass playing, instead of a pick-style, which would be more appropriate for that band.In 2002, Reeder produced the British hard rock band
