STP REUNION: LIVE VIDEO SURFACES, NEW RECORD IN THE WORKS
Despite what Axl might have to say about the guy, I’ve always held that Scott Weiland is one of the greatest frontmen of our generation and I’m super-psyched for the
collaboration between ex-Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland, former Army of Anyone members Dean and Rob DeLeo, and Bomb Shelter Studios owner Eric Kretz Stone Temple Pilots reunion. According to a press release the band plans to work on a new album following their massive 65-date Summer tour, which begins May 17th in Ohio and yours truly will attend May 31st in New Jersey. No word yet on a record label or any other details for the album; the band’s prior five releases were on Atlantic Records.
Here’s fan-filmed footage of the band performing “Big Empty” last night in Hollywood. Please excuse the lame-o commentary from the camerawoman (“He’s, like, making love to the guitar!” during Dean’s slide part). Does Dean DeLeo look fucking amped to be playing in front of real audiences or what??
