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 »

Watch The 8-Bit Grunge Medley You Didn’t Know You Wanted

What if all the angst and aggression of grunge were filtered through the sound chips of the very same video-game systems those artists grew up on? It's a question we've asked ourselves many, many times, but finally someone has done something about it. The Youtube channel Filthy Frackers has crafted an animated medley of grunge'… 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 Sue Scott Weiland

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. "Enough is enough," says band’s lawsuit. "Without relief from the court, Weiland will continue violating… More »

Chester Bennington Is Stone Temple Pilots’ New Singer

It's genuinely not easy to keep track of the Stone Temple Pilots family tree: The band's instrumental core (brothers Dean and Robert DeLeo and drummer Eric Kretz) have now parted ways with vocalist Scott Weiland three times. In 1997, they went on hiatus, which led to Weiland releasing a solo album, while the DeLeos and… More »

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 »

Stone Temple Pilots – “Cinnamon” Video (Previously Unreleased)

A few years ago, Stone Temple Pilots reunited long enough to release a self-titled 2010 album before another Scott Weiland meltdown ended things all over again. The band filmed a couple of videos for their track "Cinnamon," deciding to to release either one, but the second of those videos recently leaked. In the clip,… 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 »

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 atMore »

Yeasayer + Suckers Cover Alanis, Live, Blind Melon, The ’90s

Williamsburg is a Camel cigarette, the new Bedford Ave. Duane Reade has a wine bar inside of it, the yuppies are part of the firmament. Along with the latest wave of high-end gentrification in this neighborhood comes the inevitable migration of its resident, and now transient, artist population. It happens. Brooklyn is aMore »

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… 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 – “Behind The Lines” Video

Watching this video for "Behind The Lines," with its POV camera and fish-eye lenses, reminds you of Prodigy's "Smack My Bitch Up" clip immediately. Turns out that vieo was the main reference for director Christopher Sims, who posted his video treatment online: To explain a bit about how this concept will play out. 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 »

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. Doe… 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 u… More »
