Stone Temple Pilots @ Caesar’s Casino – 8/16

Scott Weiland, along with thet newly reunited Stone Temple Pilots are coming just across the river, to Caeser’s Casino in Indiana on August 16th. I can’t help but wonder though whether having Scott play at a Casino is a good idea when the man can’t quite seem to control his vices. Not even 2 weeks ago, Scott was arrested for his second DUI & sentenced to 192 hours of community service to be served before May 28th (and their tour starts in 8 days!). Not to mention his drug use…

That said, growing up in the 90s, Stone Temple Pilots is one of my all-time favorite bands. Albums like Core, Purple and to a lesser extent, Tiny Music were all fantastic albums. I think allegiance to STP and changing personal preferences never really let me appreciate supergroup Velvet Revolver.

That’s why I’m glad to see this 10 year hiatus come to a close. The suddenness of it all is what is so shocking…it was just over a month ago that word had gotten out that Velvet Revolver was breaking up (and some pretty hilarious in-fighting via blogging to go along with it) & already a full-length STP tour is set to go in just over a week. Sounds like a cheating girlfriend…but I’m perfectly ok with it…Scott belongs with STP anyway…

  1. I saw STP at Louisville Gardens back in the mid 90s. It was a surprisingly good show. Cheap Trick opened if I’m not mistaken.

  2. Man I forgot how much I loved this band. I remember when Plush came out that there was a rumor going around that STP was really Pearl Jam and Eddie V. was trying to fool everyone.

    I can also remember sitting in my room with Core basically on repeat playing this Sega Genesis game all night long. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wghznH7Jtbw
