Stone Temple Pilots ride out turbulence. Special Guest Cage the Elephant.. Of all the bands to emerge in the alternative rock explosion of the early 1990s, Stone Temple Pilots might have been considered one of the least likely to be producing new music with its original lineup intact in 2010. Actually, given lead singer Scott Weiland’s history of drug addiction, they might have been considered one of the least likely to have its original lineup still alive in 2010.

But here they are — guitarist Dean DeLeo, his bassist-playing brother Robert DeLeo, drummer Eric Kretz and Weiland — with the new “Stone Temple Pilots” after years of declining sales, offshoot bands, legal woes, Weiland’s drug history and a band hiatus that ran from 2002 to 2008.

Well i guess its like the last commentor wrote if your not a friend or 'connection' of bobs you can not play here--its a shame we only gotta see the same old cover bands that have been re-treading here the last 6 years---meanwhile there are a few excellent 'original' bands that are from here that can pack the place out---designer handbags i have nothing against these cover bands personally and are friends w/ the majority of 'em that play here--but we need new blood--new hard rockin' bands if you will, that can bring back this current local staggering rock scene---bandshell bob its time to wake up and stop being a puppet for the corporate sponsors & management ---instead listen to what the people want to see here--it would make a much stronger rock scene---not this pathetic entertainment shell---the people have spoken
