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 got… More »

Hear Scott Weiland’s Christmas Album

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 at Spin. TheMore »

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 with… 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. According to a review from the Houston Press, STP went on an hour late, and Scott Weiland greeted the audience with a personal, rambling speech about music, family, and hi… More »

STP LOL: Lip-Syncing Weiland Falls Off Stage

Scott Weiland fell off the stage at a show in Cincinnati last night, while his “backing track” or perhaps “lead vocal track” kept going. But he’s okay! So decide for yourself if he was lipsyncing when he fell, or merely singing over a backing vocal. I scrolled ahead for you:… More »

Stone Temple Pilots – “Between The Lines”

Hole and Stone Temple Pilots both played SXSW this year, perhaps working some deep, deep viral marketing for Hot Tub Time Machine, or perhaps not. Maybe it’s just auspicious timing that two bands that dominated my guitar tab purchases in 1994 have some highly-anticipated LPs out soon, with STP offering up their first album since… More »

New Scott Weiland Video – “Tangle With Your Mind”

We’ve established grunge nostalgia’s at a fever pitch. STP aren’t dummies, so they’re touring (mostly casinos, apparently) even if it means ignoring one another offstage. Meanwhile Weiland’s got a new solo cut perfect for … dentists’ office waiting rooms? More »

VH1 Revives Behind The Music

Since ’97, BTM has tracked the rise and spectacular falls of 168 artists, most recently New Kids On The Block last fall. It was the network’s signature program before the Flavorrr Flaaav years. You probably haven’t seen it in a while, since new episodes are few and far between, and Pantera is the only episode… More »

Scott Weiland Covers The Smiths

Scott misses Cleveland and, it seems, vintage Smiths. The Deluxe Edition of “Happy” In Galoshes includes a second disc housing this cover of “Reel Around The Fountain” from Morrissey & Co’s 1984 self-titled debut. Between this and that Bowie impression, it feels like Weiland’s trying to position himself amid legendary vocal company. Does it work? More »

New Scott Weiland Video – “Missing Cleveland”

Scott Weiland may be Happy In Galoshes, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t “Missing Cleveland” (and the snow). Whereas the video for the Bowie-esque “Paralysis” had him wandering the outback like Indiana Le Bon and occasionally sucking face with his dark-haired lady friend, “Missing Cleveland”‘s all about obsessing over his rocket, dressing up in hi… More »

2008 American Music Awards: Just The Good Parts

Good being relative, of course. AMA stands for Auto-Tune Music Award so it wasn’t long before Kanye was onstage. Upon accepting his first ever AMA, for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album, Kanye urged his contemporaries to join him in pushing the pop music envelope, a la the Beatles, Hendrix and Zeppelin. “In any other industry, you’re supposed… More »

Stream Scott Weiland’s Happy In Galoshes

You’ve heard Scott “Paddington Bear” Weiland’s second solo album in bits and plenty of pieces, but now a week before its release (11/25), you can listen to all of Galoshes in one fell swoop. More »

New Scott Weiland Video – “Paralysis”

Stone Temple Pilots visited New Orleans over the weekend, remembering the ’90s for the benefit of Voodoo Music Experience attendees. Their reunion tour wraps up this week, and Weiland’s hinted that he’d rather not pursue a future with STP if it means making albums for Atlantic. So stakes are high for Scott’s second solo outing… More »

New Scott Weiland – “Crash”

Scott Weiland’s taken a break from political prognostications to add the swooning trance-a-holic “Crash” to the list of Happy In Galoshes songs we’ve heard. It falls somewhere below “Paralysis” and above “Happy In Cleveland.”… More »

Scott Weiland Offers Two Cents On The Election

It’s unclear if we should be taking election advice from someone who has trouble standing up, but at his official website under the header “Somewhere just past immigration Texas, USA,” the Stone Temple Pilot lets us know, among other things, that “it’s our imperfections and our willingness to persevere that makes us stronger.” Which i… More »

New Scott Weiland – “Missing Cleveland”

One more from Happy In Golashes. Not as good as “Paralysis,” which means modern rock radio will probably love it. Hear it at MySpace. More »

New Scott Weiland – “Paralysis”

The ever troubled Stone Temple Revolver singer lets the internet in on some sounds from his (partially) Steve Albini produced solo record today. According to Blabbermouth, the track “Paralysis” was co-written with No Doubt dudes Adrian Young, Tony Kanal, and Tom Dumont (with Adrian on drums). That might explain why its pop sounds so fit… More »

Scott Weiland Solo Album Out This Fall

The STP frontman is barely able to pilot himself across a stage, but Billboard reports his second solo album Happy will be out 11/18 via his label Softdrive: Steve Albini did some engineering, the title track includes appearances by the members of No Doubt who aren’t Gwen Stefani, and Billboard describes one song as “peppy,”… More »

Scott Weiland Is Still In Bad Shape

As we continue documenting the downfall of grunge’s old guard, it’s worth noting Scott Weiland’s still a mess. Velvet Revolver might be reduced to joining forces with Spacehog, but Weiland recently joined forces with Eric Kretz’s drum kit. The Arizona Republic reports that at STP’s 7/29 show at the Dodge Theatre in Phoenix, Weiland appeared… More »

Scott Weiland Goes A Long Way To Suggest Drugs Aren’t Good For You

No sooner do we mention Amy Winehouse’s return to form in Lisbon than Scott Weiland reminds us about his own wobbly self. Looks like the Stone Temple Pilots reunion is going about as swimmingly as we predicted. He gave us false hope by not getting kicked out or arrested during STP’s debut at the Harry… More »
