Stone Temple Pilots

Stone Temple Pilots were able to turn alternative rock into stadium rock; naturally, they became the most critically despised band of their era. Accused by many critics of being nothing more than ripoff artists who pilfered from Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains, the bandmates nevertheless became major stars in 1993. And the influence of those bands was apparent in their music, although Stone Temple Pilots did manage to change things around a bit. STP were more concerned with tight song structure and riffs than punk rage. Their closest antecedents were not the Sex Pistols or Hüsker Dü; instead the band resembled arena rock acts from the '70s -- they made popular hard rock that sounded good on the radio and in concert. No matter what the critics said, Stone Temple Pilots had undeniably catchy riffs and production; there's a reason why over three million people bought their debut album, Core, and why their second album, Purple, shot to number one when it was released.

Following the success of Purple and its accompanying tour, the band took some time off, during which the group's lead singer, Scott Weiland, developed a heroin addiction. In the spring of 1995, he was arrested for possession of heroin and cocaine, and was sentenced to a rehabilitation program. Following his completion of the program, Stone Temple Pilots recorded their third album. Released in the spring of 1996, Tiny Music...Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop, entered the charts at number four. Shortly after its release, Stone Temple Pilots announced that Weiland had relapsed and entered a drug rehabilitation facility, thereby canceling the group's plans for a summer tour. Weiland's drug problems and the group's inability to support Tiny Music with a tour meant that the album couldn't replicate the success of its predecessors -- by the end of the summer, it had fallen out the Top 50 and had stalled at platinum, which was considerably less than what the group's two previous albums achieved.

Still battling his personal demons, Weiland recorded a 1998 solo album, 12 Bar Blues, while the remaining members of STP recruited vocalist Dave Coutts to record a self-titled LP under the band name Talk Show. To the surprise of many, Stone Temple Pilots then reunited, although shortly after completing 1999's No. 4 Weiland was sentenced to a year in a Los Angeles county jail for violating his probation, which stemmed from an earlier conviction for heroin possession. Even so, a newly rejuvenated Stone Temple Pilots and a sober Weiland emerged stronger than ever during the new millennium. The band got back to basics with Shangri-La Dee Da, released in summer 2001. Two years later, STP issued the ambitious greatest-hits package Thank You. The audio-only edition featured 15 tracks -- 13 hits spanning the group's entire career, an acoustic version of "Plush" dating from 1992, and the new track "All in the Suit That You Wear" -- while a special CD/DVD format included three hours of videos, live performances, and behind-the-scenes footage.

Stone Temple Pilots took another break between 2003 and 2008, during which time Weiland found renewed success as the frontman of Velvet Revolver. After clashes with his bandmates resulted in his exit from the group, Weiland reunited with STP and embarked on a successful reunion tour in 2008, with ticket sales reportedly totaling $230,000 per show. The band returned to the studio one year later, emerging in 2010 with the release of Stone Temple Pilots, its self-titled sixth album. It reached number two on the U.S. album charts, and the band embarked on a worldwide tour which wound up being documented on the 2011 live video Alive in the Windy City. STP were planning to continue a tour in 2012, possibly playing their debut Core in its entirety, but these plans fell apart, and on February 27, 2013 the group announced they had fired Weiland. On the following day, the singer countered that this was all a ruse to boost ticket sales and that lawyers would straighten out the situation, but the remaining members of Stone Temple Pilots soldiered on without him, appearing as a surprise guest on KROQ's annual Weenie Roast on May 18, 2013. Their new vocalist was Chester Bennington from Linkin Park; he not only performed with the band on the May 18 and 19 (the latter was in San Francisco), but he sang lead on the group's new single "Out of Time," which was available for download on May 19, 2013. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Scott and his dope habit were a music making force lol
Some of these comments are so Rediculous. All of these bands were amazing in their own way. STP was an amazing group. Obviously people don't listen to the crap that plagues the radio today.. nothing is original. Same riffs and licks. These guys paved the way.... all of them. I play bass. And for some goof to say that STP' bass player is mediocre is rediculous. He is one of the better bass players around. Bob rocks the s**t. It's a shame that some people just don't get it...music is amazing
Follow for follow (Read my bio please)
f**k chester bennington and his corporate a**, stop ruining the stone temple pilots name with that abomination and make amends with scott already!
rolln rollin boy, and I think, I think too much.
and I feel so much depends on the weather, so is it raining in your bedroom
I grew up listening to STP, I'll always love them. Especially Purple, that's a classic album.
I'm a crackerman in my skin color

Hi Sam
Without Scott it's garbage stp in their heyday were f**king epic these guys and Alice in chains are good listening
Good a** f**kin song.
Guitar riff identical to Jim Croce's song entitled 'I got a name'. Its uncanny. Either they copied it or it must've seeped into their self-conscio u s while composing this.
They kicked the person out that made them famous. The way STP stands now they have a ok base player, a decent drummer, and a mediocre guitar player and a Whiny lead singer. Sounds like f**king Coldplay
I was going to see them @ the PARAMOUNT last year once i found out SCOTT wasnt the singer of his band i didnt bother!



They dont sound like pearl jam god f**king damn it.
bowechevy
Scott is the man!!!!
Conversation kills
I havent heard chester but theres noway in hell hes better than scott!
They sound awesome with Scott love this song so many great songs miss the 90's
PLUSH is the best song ever by Stone Temple Pilots
Im so glad chester is in the band now, makes them sound AMAZING
Fantastic band!
Stp is amazing chestp is not
luckyheartz7 7
Love lol <3<3<3
this stuff is great!!!!!!C r i t i c s can take a little spin on the cosmic utensil.
Even if a critics are right that they're just a grunge-ripof f band, they still deserve credit because they're a good one that does it well! Lol. And yeah, I feel like their only big misfire was when they went from STP to CheSTP
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
falch6

Now that Chester is in it, STP will get more likes.
There first album core was the only one I ever cared for but it was amazing

Stupid intentionall y obscure pretentious lyrics from ripoff artist hacks. Did not deserve any fame or fortune. Became a heroin addict because he knew deep inside just how much STP sucked.

Stupid intentionall y obscure pretentious lyrics sung by an Eddie Vedder ripoff artist. Did not deserve any fame or fortune. Became a heroin addict because he knew deep inside ho much he sucked. On a Nickelback level of suckness.
