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 »

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 – “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 »

Spacehog Frontman Joining Velvet Revolver?

With Scott Weiland out the door and on STP tour, Slash & friends are reportedly going to replace Mr. Reliable with Royston Langdon, the dork who fronted the English band Spacehog. They had a hit with the “In The Meantime” that wasn’t by Helmet. More impressive? He bagged Liv Tyler (until she left him recently). 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 »

Bob Dylan, Chuck Berry Join Usual Suspects For Virgin Fest 2008

Some details leaked a few weeks back, but now you can peruse the full line-up for Virgin’s Baltimore stop and decide whether to shell out the $175 (plus $175 for gas). The third annual Virgin East Coast delivers some familiar festival faces to Pimlico Race Course August 9 and 10: Kanye, NIN, and the omnipresent… More »

Velvet Revolver Looking For Talent … Online

After Scott Weiland was very publicly kicked to the curb and decided to focus his considerable energies on the Stone Temple Pilots reunion, we had hopes for some sort of GN’R hatchet burying, but it looks like the revolving door of Velvet Revolver has other ideas. (And, by the way, that’s not their new vocalist… 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 »
