Two weeks after the drug-overdose death of former Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland, his estranged STP bandmates have posted a new video that pays tribute to what Weiland could do at his best. As Rolling Stone points out, the three surviving band members have posted a video of themselves in a studio, listening to a never-released master of “Atlanta,” a song from their 1999 album No. 4. In a statement to Rolling Stone, the band members say, “Recently the three of us sat down together to share our memories of Scott and take a moment to reflect on the amazing times we shared. We put the master up of a song called ‘Atlanta’ from the No. 4 record that we feel really highlights the true brilliance of Scott. We would like to share it with you.” In the video, the three of them sit and listen, offering somber commentary on the song, all of them marveling at what Weiland did on it. Check it out below.
