SCOTT WEILAND Says STONE TEMPLE PILOTS Reunion Is Imminent - Jan. 21, 2008
VELVET REVOLVER frontman Scott Weiland has told MiamiHerald.com that fans should be on the lookout for a reunion of his previous band, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, in the coming months. The singer made the announcement during an appearance this past Saturday (January 19) at an all-star gala event benefiting the AROD Family Foundation. The event took place at the Ritz Carlton hotel in South Beach, Florida. Hosts included Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez and his wife Cynthia, who founded the non-profit organization to support programs focused on improving quality of life, education and mental health for families in distress.

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS guitarist Dean DeLeo and bassist Robert DeLeo confirmed the band's split in 2003 following the release of the group's greatest-hits package, "Thank You".

"It was time to move on to other things," Dean told Guitar One magazine at the time. "Life and personalities and brotherhood took its course."

"Dean and [drummer] Eric [Kretz] and myself, I think, all feel a sense of sadness, relief, anger, melancholy about it," said Robert. "But to try and go and accomplish something with this band after we've already peaked is a bit cheesy. There's a cheese factor with guys hitting 40 trying to recapture glory.

"There's no way to go but out."

Weiland was expected to appear in a Los Angeles courtroom last Thursday (January 17), where his recent DUI case was to be continued. The singer was charged with driving under the influence of drugs after being pulled over by police in late November.

VELVET REVOLVER will begin a new U.S. tour on January 24 in Chicago, with dates confirmed through February 9.

I got STP's live DVD a couple years ago from the greatest hits CD package (with the lovely woman in the field of flowers on the inside cover) and loved it. I would definitely see them, and am starting to wonder if they could do like Portishead this year (re:the States, I know their 1st show is earlier and they're touring Europe preceding and still a little after Coachella) and do a big reunion show and then do a short tour in the coming months. Hoping for an STP Friday.

i was in the fourth grade when i started listening to nirvana, and inmediatly fell in love with their music, as i've always had a thing for rock in all its subgenres.. (thanks in laaarge part to my older brother).. the more i grow the more i realize how wonderful it is that i was so fully aware of everything going on around me, musically etc..

After Velvet Revolver wraps a spring tour in support of its second album, "Libertad," frontman Scott Weiland will rejoin his former bandmates in Stone Temple Pilots for a handful of summer reunion shows, guitarist Slash tells Billboard.com.

STP broke up in late 2002; the band's last album was the previous year's "Shangri-La Dee Da." No other details have yet been revealed about STP's plans.

In the meantime, Weiland and his Velvet Revolver bandmates are still plugging away in support of "Libertad" with dates that run through early April. There's also the hope that recording for album number three could begin in the spring.

"I don't think anybody knew the second one came out," Slash admits. "We didn't promote it, for one. The first record I remember going out for three weeks on the road and just promoting, with (bassist) Duff (McKagan) and myself going to Europe, Japan and the States.

"This time around we actually went on the road way before the album came out. It's just a different kind of promotion," he continues. "People are just going to a concert, and you're not necessarily drilling into their head about the new album. So I think that had a lot to do with it. All things considered, it doesn't matter to me. It's still just a really good record."

On the current tour, which plays Milwaukee tonight (Jan. 25), Velvet Revolver has added additional Guns N' Roses and Stone Temple Pilots covers it hadn't performed previously.

"There was a point there where I thought that we felt like we were sort of obligated to do them, like people really, really were expecting that," Slash says. "And once we got a bigger catalog by putting out another record, there was a feeling like we don't necessarily have to do any Guns N' Roses and Stone Temple Pilots songs."

"It was more like Pete Townshend feeling like he didn't have to smash his amps every night," he continues. "So for a second there, that was the plan, but then we personally started missing it. They were like the easiest cover songs for us to cover because we wrote them, so we just sort of got over that."

Speaking of Guns N' Roses, Slash admits he has no contact with Axl Rose, nor has he heard material from the long-awaited "Chinese Democracy." But any silence between the camps is bound to end come 2012, when the influential hard rock act becomes eligible for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Slash, McKagan and drummer Matt Sorum experienced firsthand what could be in store based on the drama that ensued last year around Van Halen's induction into the Rock Hall. With Eddie Van Halen in rehab and David Lee Roth refusing to attend after a set list squabble, Velvet Revolver ended up jamming with Michael Anthony and Sammy Hagar.

"I never even thought about it until we had to do that," Slash says. "Somebody asked me, 'Do you think you guys will be able to show up for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (induction ceremony) in five years?' I was like, 'Oh, I guess we're eligible.' It never dawned on me before then. If this comes up, I'd hope we'd be mature enough to get up and do that, but I have no idea."

When asked what his gut feeling is about Rose and the other original members coming together, Slash says, "My gut doesn't count because it's not just about me. It's about everybody. And if it was easy to predict, we probably wouldn't have had so many hassles in the first place."

When the metal station (KNAC) in LA went under all the fans like got absorbed into KROQ and it skewed like 'asskick' type music.

Indie 103.1 (despite rightwing political BS with joe Escalante), FM 94/9 (if near San Diego) or KCRW are much more with the Coachella vibe and artists.

First off, you don't need to use the word bygone if you are going to say "of the 90's", it is implied...
there was plenty of praying for newer bands, i guess most people are over it.....
I think there are plenty of good bands nowadays, they just aren't playing..
Portishead made their living in the 90's, in the shadows of the whole "grunge" movement
Kraftewerk, 80's and 90's
Love and ROckets, 80's and 90's
The VErve, 90's

And I'm glad you enjoy Nirvana too, but I'm sorry that you probably feel his death has contributed to them being "big". Perhaps you should join the thread in the music lounge.

t's just a thought, i never thought it would hurt you this much.... you okay?
i never understood the big difference between nirvana b. kurt's death and nirvana a. kurt's death, since i loved nirvana before he died..

if cobain was alive today, perhaps 15-23 year olds wouldn't know who he is, or wouldn't respect him as much.. people tend to have extra respect and admiration for people who have done good work or created or contributed to something great, and being dead, what's left is all that's left, and maybe that's why it creates a phenomenon around'em..

i never got the whole "wow, i didn't quite get nirvana, but hey this dude died, nirvana's music was awesome, he's gonna change lives now" thing... their music seemed as amazing to me before the whole dark april 94 as it seems now..

you might only be hurt if the shoe fits.. an you come off as someone who HAS to prove something... if this is not your case, then you should just say so, you know.. geez.. relax..

ETA: big isn't huge.. they weren't as famous globally... i remember them being big.. smashing big, not pink floyd huge.. someone might have never listened to a pinkfloyd record but can still know who floyd are.. kids today might have never listened to a nirvana album but they know who kurt and nirvana are..

WOW! That is a lot of absolute garbage under STP. I understand why scott weiland would associate himself with that less than average crew of bands (since he was in the most douchetronic band of all time - velvet revolver), but the rest of the guys, im shocked.

i mean, Filter is pretty good i guess. but the rest, jeez - this alone should disqualify them from coachella - as much as i love STP.

So I guess this eliminates STP as any kind of late addition. Bummer cause that would have been huge for me. Not the biggest fan but I do enjoy alot of their music.

Aaron Lewis' mom solo is better than Staind. :rolleyes

Im not as confident STP is completely out of the Coachella 08 future. Considering Rage's public bombshell tied to Coachella, its logical they could bill STP in a similar manner.

i saw STP in their hay day at a radio festival in Florida...they were blahh at best. No interest on my part. Bring REM instead, i don't care how many festivals they play.

With STP and Filter both playing, they could put together the Army of Anyone reunion. They've been on hiatus for so long now.

Army of Anyone is kaput. Considering their talent I respect, they were utterly underwhelming.

The only good thing about AoA was the individual playing. Great playing, bad songs.

SFGate.com:

"Rocker Scott Weiland has pleaded innocent to drunk-driving charges following his November arrest in Los Angeles.

The Velvet Revolver singer entered his plea in a L.A. court through his attorney on Wednesday.

Weiland is free on $40,000 bail and is due back in court for a hearing on April 4.

If convicted, he faces up to one year behind bars because he has a prior conviction for driving under the influence.

He was pulled over by police on November 21 on a Hollywood freeway and was taken into custody after refusing to take a sobriety test."
