Featured Scott Weiland stories

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 »

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 in 2013, and… More »

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 »

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 »

Stone Temple Pilots Bring Kimmel Some Reunited Rock, While Scott Weiland Feels Axl’s Pain

Last night the gods of ’90s-era modern rock radio wept a tear of happiness when the newly reunited Stone Temple Pilots performed “Vaseline” and didn’t entirely suck (although Scott gets a little too into the whirling dervish bit post-solo and forgets that he has to, like, sing).

God bless those DeLeo… More »

Scott Weiland Preps For Albini-Produced Double LP, Autobiography, Prison

It feels like we’ve typed the words “Scott Weiland” more times in the past month than during the height of the grunge era. Fair enough, we didn’t have a blog during the height of the grunge era, but he has been in the news: After Weiland’s onstage antics and subsequent firing from Velvet Revolver, he… More »

Stone Temple Pilots Play First Of Reunion Shows, Scott Weiland Does Not Get Kicked Out Or Arrested

We’ve been keeping you apprised of the Velvet Revolver drama. Now it’s time for a bit of Stone Temple Pilots non-drama. After being fired by Slash & Co. last week, Scott Weiland played his first set with the reunited STP last night at the Harry Houdini Estate in Los Angeles. It was the band’s first… More »

Weiland Responds To Velvet Revolver Firing

That was a pun, but also, it’s true. Maybe you’ve had enough Velvet Revolver for the time being, but since we’ve followed the soap opera this far, we can’t leave you with a cliff hanger. Responding to being axed by the remaining Revolvers, Weiland’s one-upped ‘em in the bitchy prose department with a statement he… More »

Scott Weiland Booted From Velvet Revolver For Not Being “100% Committed,” Preps More Extensive STP Tour

Last week we reported on Velvet Revolver’s bitchy blog posts after on-stage drama in Glasgow and the path they were taking toward a breakup. Turns out the Revolvers will keep on keeping on, but apparently without Scott Weiland. Nothing’s been posted at drummer Matt Sorum’s personal site, but Slash, Duff McKagan, Sorum and Dave Kushner… More »

Velvet Revolver Breakup Via Bitchy Blog Posts

How modern of them. But seriously, our hearts go out to fans of mediocre music, as it looks like the mighty Velvet Revolver are close to handing in their ammo, could very well be done shooting their rock ‘n’ roll blanks, etc. See, there was on-stage drama this past Thursday in Glasgow, and then Weiland… More »

Scott Weiland Hints At A Stone Temple Pilots Reunion, Which We’ll Start Believing As Soon As He Stops Disappearing

The (generally) under-appreciated — though, let’s face it, with the early-era EdVed aping and late-era hard-drug taking, we can understand why — Stone Temple Pilots called it quits in 2003 so the awesome DeLeo brothers could start up the less-than-awesome Army Of Anyone, and Scott Weiland could front Velvet Revolver and have his wife incinerateMore »

It’s Not Over ‘Til Mary Weiland Sets Fire To Your Velvet Wardrobe

It’s been an incendiary half-week behind closed doors for rocker Scott Weiland and his wife, Mary. The couple, who are no strangers to domestic disputes (Scott plead guilty to domestic violence charges against Mary in December ’01), ramped up the crazy this weekend by trashing their Burbank hotel room; allegedly, Mary “ripped alarm clocks and… More »

David Lee Roth’s Absence Explained: No “Jump,” No Dice

Although everybody knew what was keeping Eddie from making the scene, there was lots of confusion and speculation as to why David Lee Roth wasn’t around to make A scene last night. We sorta missed the guy, spandex and all. Dave maintains he wasn’t invited to perform; the Hall Of Fame issued a press release… More »

Scott Weiland: Notre Dame Fan

So we know some of you think STP were more than a Pearl Jam knock off (you’re note alone). And maybe a few from that group love Fighting Irish football and are worried about coach Charlie Weis leaving? Well, Scott Weiland’s totally your hero! Blabbermouth posted this “open letter” to the coach. Don’t ask. Just… More »
