Stone Temple Pilots: Reunited

Posted on Sunday, May 18, 2008 at 12:48AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments12 Comments

Rock on the Range music festival in Columbus, Ohio is currently underway. The biggest event of the weekend is the Stone Temple Pilots reunion concert. Scott Weiland and company played a 75 minute set of their most famous songs, "Big Empty," "Wicked Garden," "Big Bang Baby," "Vaseline," "Lady Picture Show," "Creep," "Plush," "Interstate Love Song," "Sex Type Thing," "Trppin on a Hole in a Paper Heart," "Dead and Bloated" and many more.

The crowd of more than 15 thousand all seemed very excited during the STP reunion. During some parts of the show it seemed like every person in Columbus Crew Stadium was singing along with Scott Weiland. The now former Velvet Revolver singer came out on stage looking like a member of the Blues Brothers in a three-piece suit and hat. As the show wore on, Wieland stripped down: first, ditching the hat, then his jacket, then his vest. Yes, he kept his pants on. The reunion show was good overall except the audio mix was off and Weiland's microphone sound was very distorted. It was a little easier to hear and understand lyrics during the songs, but impossible to decipher anyone in the band during stage banter.

Sometimes it's easier to tell a story in pictures, so please enjoy the following images:

Now, now Mike.. There is actually a quite straightforward link with glam, even if STP and Weiland in particular are dreadful.

Nothing wrong STP, and they are indeed a little glam. But what the hell have Scott done with his hair?

Ok, STP were part of the grunge "scene". But they are a rock band. Weiland has elements of glam in the way he dresses sometimes, that's it everyone. They are not glam. I'm glad to see them back, along with Pearl Jam they were one of the better bands to come out of that era.

Gosh Mike. Taking things a LITTLE too seriously, don't you think ?

I hope your real world relationships don't get abandoned over anything this trivial. Otherwise, I suspect you're going to be alone when you die.

Hey Mike,

Dude do yourself and all of us a favor and go and take a handful of chill pills.

None of you must be true glam fans if you support this shit. POSERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mike,

I thought you were never having anything to do with this site again? Whether STP is related to glam or not I do not think that is the point. STP was reunited last night Allyson saw the show and it is a "rock" news story.

Datdood,

Sorry you got beat up in the pit. Columbus Crew stadium has a capacity of 22,555 and Saturday's event was not sold out.

well STP is not bringing back glam, I too wonder what britney spears, george michael and STP have to do with glam..

does it mean that, grunge is not the enemy but only the bands that allyson dislikes are enemies of glam?
