Typo *art galleries*
Charleston is unaccustomed to and hates black people who defy stereotypes and know their rights as human beings. Charleston government, retailers, and grocery store managers use law enforcement to regulate segregation not enforce law. If black people in Charleston were to dine out, play tennis, surf at the beaches, go to the theaters and art gallerieses, shop at upscale organic grocers, and own and operate local events and newspapers such CCP, then Charleston would find a way to (and already does find ways to) segregate black people from those so called "white Charleston activities". Black people in Charleston weave sweet grass baskets because that is what Charleston segregates them to do. Charleston mandates that black people stay in their place as a silent beholden underclass. A commenter on this thread wrote "I grew up in West Ashley where blacks and whites lived side by side and went to school together. I remember as a child I didn't have enough money to buy something and a white man paid the difference. I've met many kind,caring and friendly white people". Well, segregation in schools is in fact illegal, a person can be racist and still give spare change to a needy black child, and it is humane, not remarkable, for human beings no matter what color they are to be kind and friendly people.
You really have no clue. Weiland's vocal diversity was defining, not a weakness. I saw them, in the beginning, athe the peak, and near the end. I saw Velvet Revolver. I have been to more than 150 shows & Scott Weiland was a tremendous artist and performer. Check the dates regarding the conception of STP's "Core" & Pearl Jam's "Ten". You shouldn't be paid to write this drivel. Also, by the time STP's #4 came out, even the critical community began to change their tone. Stone Temple Pilots were one in a billion. Had Scott Weiland been able to escape his demons, they would likely become Legends, much the way Led Zeppelin did. As is, they are one of the greatest rock bands to exist in the last four decades. Their music will continue to age well & gain continued appreciation. Those two Velvet Revolver albums were pretty phenomenal as well. Scott Weiland's "12 Bar Blues" is remarkable, and even the late follow up, "Happy in Galoshes" was solid though uneven.
