    I feel sorry for her and the kids but I don't think she and Scott had the best track record before the kids arrived. But I guess its the life they lived. I'm sure he wanted to spend more time with his family. Who knows the truth really...
    We all have problems and I think most people refer to Scott as still feeling like a person who didn't fit in with anyone else, alone. He talks about it in some of his interviews in the past.

    I had tickets to see them for their last album tour back but couldn't go as I had to head home from Europe back to Australia for a wedding. But I wish I did...

    Such a great talent and shame he couldn't keep it together. Same thing happened to Layne Staley probably my other most favourite singer of our generation.

    I came here to post one of my favorite unreleased STP tracks, and while searching for it, found out that Scott re-worked it and released it as a solo single. I'm kinda disappointed in myself that I didn't realize that, and that I haven't really delved into Scott's solo work despite being a die-hard STP fan.

    TMZ obtained a copy of the search warrant Bloomington, MN cops got to search Weiland's bus after his death — and it shows they found at least 2 bags of a white substance. They've already said that substance tested positive for cocaine.

    Also on the bus — a generic version of Xanax, 2 different brands of sleeping pills, Buprenorphine … a synthetic opiate painkiller, and Viagra. There was also Ziprasidone … which is used to treat bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Scott was diagnosed as bipolar in 2001.
    There it is.

    Yeah, it does appear like it was an OD. When I saw him this year, he was in better shape than he was two years ago, so I had really hoped he was going easy on that shit and getting his life together.

    On another note, I am listening to his final album now, Art of Anarchy's self-titled debut, and it's not bad. It's a little generic, but Weiland did the best he could with the material and his personality, craftsmanship and ability to create strong melodies make this a better-than-average, modern sounding rock album.

    I'm a huge Scott Weiland fan and feel sorry that he was fired, but I can hardly blame the other members for kicking him out. These guys are in their late 40's now and getting too old for this sort of thing:

    Chester is reliable and professional, so I can totally see why they'd want to work with him over Scott. I also have no problem with them keeping the name. The three other members have spent over 20 years of their lives building up that brand and they shouldn't have to stop using that moniker just because their frontman can't keep it together. As a live act, STP with Chester sound great, IMHO. Caught the Boston show in 2013 and am seeing them again in April. I'm also seeing Scott next month.

    As for Chester sounding like Scott--I see your point. He does sound somewhat Weiland-esque on the excellent High Rise EP, although he still has his own identity. Since that was just their first collaboration together, I expect Chester to find his own voice with the upcoming album.

    ETA--this sounds good:

    I posted this a few months back and that's how I felt then. I kind of thought they would release a new album with Chester and one day Scott would return. Now, with the departure of Chester and the death of Weiland, I think they should retire the band, or at least the name and leave the legacy alone. I think they had potential with Chester, but it didn't work out, and it would be a mistake to go with a third singer. I would be interested in new music from the DeLeo brothers, but Stone Temple Pilots died with Scott.

    Can't blame them for trying, they deserve a second chance because they are very talented guys, but very few bands survive the death of their lead singer...

    They should just be Stone Temple Pilots featuring (insert new singer here) like they were with Chester.

    Good luck to them. Not crazy about getting some unknown, via the Internet. If they insist on using the name, at least go with an established singer, imho.

    And Scott Stapp is now claiming he might be STP's new singer but the band denies it: http://www.avclub.com/article/scott-...ew-sing-236152

    If that were to happen, STP would be dead to me. Then again, it kinda is now.

    I'm actually referring to Chester of Linkin Park since he sort of sounds like Beavis but... Beavis would actually the better frontman than Scott Stapp who is so full of himself.

    I remember some years ago in an interview, Stapp feels proud that about the state of rock claiming he and his band influenced so much when the reality was that Crud nor any of those bands they supposedly influenced were original to begin with. In fact, I still believe that rock music hasn't changed very much at all in the past 20-25 years. And yes, I hate Crud, Nickelturd, & 3 Dull Dudes did as they just created watered-down post-grunge for the masses and made music sound safe. Ugh.... Plus, I hate it when some people tag STP as a post-grunge band which is bullshit as I thought of them as just a straight-ahead rock n' roll band.

    They had grunge characteristics at the beginning. That's about it.

    he's singing for Art of Anarchy...whatever that is. Has one of Axl's GnR scab guitarists, and a dude from Disturbed. SOUNDS AWESOME!

    LMAO. Scott Stapp and STP are perfect for each other.

    In that they are both spotlight whoring, past their "prime", "90s icons".

    I have the Art of Anarchy album. It's pretty generic, although Weiland did the best he could with the material.

    STP are rumored to have found their new singer.

    http://www.rockfeed.net/2016/09/15/s...n-replacement/

    The singer, John Borja, sounds good, just like Scott, in fact. He would be perfect for an STP tribute band, but I don't know about him fronting the actual STP. I'm not crazy about Linkin Park, but at least Bennington tried to put his own stamp on the band, same with DuVall in AIC. This is just weird.

    except for how Chester weirdly acted & danced like Weiland on-stage, for no apparent reason that makes any sense to me other than to...what? Make people feel comfortable like this is the STP they've known? To fool people? Odd and made me uncomfortable, and I'm not even an STP fan.

    6:56 in is good example:



    and pretty much this whole show:
