STP was in my constant collection in the 90's and early 2000's then he left the band and joined Velvet Revolver . I LOVED Velvet Revolver. I played their CD's nonstop and knew every song from beginning to end. Scott was with VR from 2003 to 2008. He went back to STP for a few more years when he left in 2013 ( got fired) and started the Wildabouts. He even did a Christmas CD a few years ago and I bought it on iTunes. Its not the best but its not the worst. haha!
Stone Temple Pilots has huge hits like Creep, Plush, Sex type Thing, Vasoline, Interstate Love Song,and Big Empty. I guarantee you know the songs even if you're not familiar with the titles.
Scott was married 3 times and his last wife had only been with him the last 4 years. He has 2 kids.
He was crazy talented and I saw many interviews he did over the years and he idolized David Bowie. Scott liked David's fashion and his creativity.
I know this sounds crazy but I have felt pretty sad about his passing. I guess it would be different if he was the lead singer of a band that I wasn't very familiar with. I just happened to really follow the works of Scott Weiland and loved his voice. The good news is that he is no longer dealing with his demons anymore. He died in his sleep on his tour bus in Minnesota. A pretty peaceful way to do if you ask me. Just sucks that he wasn't with his family.
Here are a few of my favorites. Its hard to choose from so many though.
This is Fall to Pieces with Velvet Revolver. His songs he wrote was from his many times in rehab and getting clean. Lots of his struggles are in his songs. You can totally tell that Slash is the lead guitarist in this band. Duff is also in the band and he and Slash were both in Guns n Roses.
Here's a song called Sour Girl. The actress Sarah Michelle Gellar from Buffy the Vampire Slayer is in the official video but I couldn't find it.
This is Plush
So. In other news, i'm trying to get in spirit and decorate the house for Christmas. I am barely skimming the surface from what I do for Halloween and what I did for Christmas last year. I'm into it but then i'm not. I just do a little every night after work. Have a great week!!
