Hear Pharrell & Scott Weiland’s Previously Unreleased “Happy”

Before the mega-hit "Happy" or the 2008 N.E.R.D. track of the same name, Pharrell Williams worked on a third track called "Happy," this one with former Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland. It was recorded in 2006 for Weiland's sophomore solo album, but it was shelved after Williams claimed the track for himself. More »

Scott Weiland Or Possible Impostor Announces First Album With The Wildabouts

The biggest Scott Weiland news item of 2014 was when a jailed meth offender who looks nothing like Weiland convinced authorities he was Weiland for an entire month after cops caught him shoplifting razors from Rite Aid in Beverly Hills. The biggest Weiland news of 2015 seems likely to be more musical in nature:… More »

Weiland Enumerates How The Rest Of Velvet Revolver Doesn’t Need Reunion Money As Much As Him

Besides fronting the forever-underrated Stone Temple Pilots, Scott Weiland used to be the lead singer of the half-decent modern rock supergroup Velvet Revolver along with Guns N' Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan, and Matt Sorum plus Wasted Youth's Dave Kushner. According to French-Canadian newspaper La Presse (via Alternative Nation), Weiland's hoping to… More »

Purple Turns 20

Stone Temple Pilots were better than Pearl Jam. Nobody was allowed to admit that in the '90s, when self-seriousness reigned and alternative rock was supposed to be Very Important Business -- or rather, A Very Important Indictment Of Business (see: Pearl Jam's war against Ticketmaster). Plus Scott Weiland made it harder on himself by blatantly… More »

The 10 Biggest Music Beefs Of 2013

As time-tested album cycles are discarded and abandoned, so too is an artist's traditional publicity window. In 2013, the best way to stay in the public eye was not to do interviews, but to bicker, troll, and brawl -- on Twitter, on TV, or in person. Yes, beef was what's for dinner i… More »

Stone Temple Pilots are suing Scott Weiland. The band filed a lawsuit again him on Friday, claiming to have lost millions of dollars on the Stone Temple Pilots 20th anniversary tour because Weiland was late for shows and promotional events.

Stone Temple Pilots Fire Scott Weiland

I wasn't aware that the reunion of the '90s alt-rock radio fixtures Stone Temple Pilots hadn't already exploded into flaming wreckage, but today we learn that it absolutely, definitively has. The band has always had an uneasy relationship with its walking disaster of a frontman Scott Weiland; they've already parted ways with him twice, i… More »

Scott Weiland – “Breathe”

We've already heard "Live To Rise," Soundgarden's contribution to the Avengers soundtrack, which also happens to be that band's first new song in a decade and a half. But Soundgarden aren't the only grunge veterans who have a song in that particular blockbuster movie. The perennially troubled-but-talented Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland --… More »

22 New Indie Rock Christmas MP3s For 2011

Don't you love Christmas music? I'm Jewish so mostly it makes me feel like I'm in a mall. But don't you love malls? I've been trying to get my daughter to listen to The Nutcracker, and that's been pretty easy because she's only three and doesn't have a choice. But if Tchaikovsky's not your speed… More »

Weiland’s XMas LP Sadder In Concert

Scott Weiland's apparently ill-considered tour for his just-as-ill-considered Christmas LP The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year marches on. A couple of weeks ago, we posted a grisly video from the tour's opener. On Saturday night, Rolling Stone was there to review Weiland's show at New York's City Winery, and it doesn't sound like… More »

Watch Video Of Scott Weiland’s Christmas Tour

Scott Weiland's Christmas tour started last night at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, and some brave soul caught a few minutes of Weiland butchering "Winter Wonderland" on tape. Visually, it's what you'd expect: Weiland, nattily dressed, doing the inverted-eyebrows lounge-singer thing while an implausibly large band swings away behind him. There's a… More »

Scott Weiland Takes Christmas LP On The Road

Scott Weiland is still not done with this Christmas thing! Hot on the heels of his goofy-ass, questionably sincere holiday album The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year , Weiland has announced a quick six-date tour, in which an orchestra will join Weiland's regular backing band. It may or may not not be a… More »

Weiland Explains XMas LP

What's the deal with this, exactly? That's what we want to know, too. Luckily, The Sudbury Star got to the man himself to ask the tough questions. A few excerpts:… More »

Scott Weiland – “Winter Wonderland” Video

When Scott Weiland's Christmas Album got announced, it was one of those things that was so easy to make fun of that you kind of had no other choice but to ignore -- no matter what you could come up with, someone probably was going to do something better, funnier and/or punnier. But, what… More »

Scott Weiland has a Christmas album, you guys! Just in time for the holidays, by which I mean, just in time for Halloween. But, hey, at least this batch of covers is a little more uplifting than other recent endeavors, so there's that. Full crooner mode for Weiland. Listen to the record atMore »

Scott Weiland Covers Radiohead’s “Let Down”

Scott Weiland definitely wants us to think he's cool. On his website, the Stone Temple Pilots frontman is selling a digital-only comp that features covers of cool songs, all curated in a weirdly showy way. It's pretty ballsy to start your cover album with the Stone Roses' "I Am The Resurrection" and end it… More »

Weiland Meltdown Prompts Another STP Hiatus

Stone Temple Pilots played the Woodlands in Houston, Texas Sunday night, and it looks like it might be the band's last show for a while.
