Re: “The tragic but undeniable truth about Scott Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots

STP have aged well. So much so lately even early detractors are recalling their early criticisms and actually apologizing to other commenters in many comments embedded in YouTube videos of STP live.

Last night I must of read 200 comments loving STP while watching a STP live performance circa 1991.

I marveled at this astonishingly adept live powerhouse they were! Others commenting sung their praises, calling them the almost Zeppelin if only they could of held that one band lineup for a little while longer and as I said, early detractors revisiting them and reversing their admitted now false and wrong opinion then.

BTW, if you had bothered to research a bit, like watching this and or other comparable performances from their peak, apparently you would of been astonished by the actual live crowd's reactions and the bands professional and competent presence. Scott today is considered THE FRONTMAN rock star of the ages by many and these legions are growing daily.

Oh well, I've read enough of these comments to realize people pretty much agree you are a clueless moron still spouting the early thoughts.

As for the vast majority of us that are genuine music appreciators with sincere core taste, at least we hold valid and honest criticisms now of the STP we knew, loved and now know is gone forever.

I guess the old cliche, "you never know what you had till it's gone" rings so true here.

Oh yeah, here's a bandwagon I'll join, you know, like you did to "appear relevent" but fail miserablely in the cold light of re-evaluation and re-examination of this fine band- GFY.

Re: “The tragic but undeniable truth about Scott Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots

You waited until the day he died to post your article about what a fraud Scott was? Wow, that 's pathetic.
To call him a fraud for using a variety of singing styles is akin to calling out a guitarist for choosing a variety of tones, song to song.
Scott wrote dozens of catchy melodies - some of the absolute best of his generation. What the hell have you ever done, aside from penning an article and sitting on it until the person died?

Re: “Nikki Haley is a certified slack-ass accountant

"Sounds like a winner."

Actually, it sounds like Michelle Obama getting a promotion, pay raise to a "no show" job after her husband (Big O) became an IL State Legislator.

Re: “I am a racist and proud of it

You can respect and treat people of other races as you treat your own race, no problem. But when economic times are tough, people of limited intellect will seek scapegoats for their pent up rage. Unfortunately, a majority of terrorism is committed by Muslims and the majority of prisoners are black, so these are the 'go to' races singled out for our vitriol. Add to that the fact that Muslim birthrates mean that by 2050 most European countries will have a white minority and a tangent loss of indigenous culture and values, and it is hardly surprising that white people feel threatened and will strike back with hate-speak as the only response, short of violent action, that eases their pent up anger and fears. Yes, it is born of ignorance but it is our only defence at present. Fortunately, white people's religion is largely based on love for one another, whereas Islam is flawed and encourages certain factions and fanatics to kill the infidel based on medieval doctrines that have no place modern life. Racism will end when terrorism and crime ceases, meaning that racism is here to stay.

Re: “I am a racist and proud of it

Whites are a minority worldwide
And America is neither white nor Christian anymore.
I wholeheartedly believe in the separation of the races.

Re: “I am a racist and proud of it

Advertisers want us to think that everybody is in a biracial relationship! Bull. Tired of Blacks talking negativity about Whites but if Whites say anything then we are racist and haters. Hypocrisy. And how come Blacks never say anything about helping Hispanics and Asians? The group who really needs everyone's help are Native Americans!

Re: “Ted Nugent didn't threaten Obama, but the Motor City Madman is still a pedophile

Chrishaire,

Just so you know, Websters defines child as "a boy or girl in the period before puberty." Words and their definitions still matter. Words used in a definition also matter.

Re: “Maurice Bessinger, BBQ baron and unrepentant racist, dies

The defense of ignorance is what keeps the human race from evolving into more than what we are now... which is nothing. Weve wasted many generations and some of us will try to ensure that we waste many more.

Re: “The tragic but undeniable truth about Scott Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots

I wonder if you've researched STP's sales Certifications already, Chris Haire. Have you?
Do you even know anything about vocal pitch and/or vocal range? ...Weiland had superiority in both compared to this counterparts.
About Nirvana, the only thing they have anything remotely close to Grunge was their debut album. Everything after that sounded LIKE alternative rock. The difference here is that I'm not shunning Nirvana, I like them.

Also, lots of the material STP wrote, were made as early as 1989. Some were songs FOR Soundgarden, lol. You can find many of these tunes live in Mighty Joe Young live shows before PJ had a jab at anything, lol.

Your article is absolutely nothing but opinions, not "facts", lol. Clueless options at best...

Re: “The tragic but undeniable truth about Scott Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots

Haire ye haire ye......the difference between you and Weiland is that Weiland could actually write, had talent and was successful with his career. It is a shame he lost control and the poison won though. RIP Scott

Re: “The tragic but undeniable truth about Scott Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots

Not sure why there arent retractions in this article. Its probably one of the most poorly researched articles on the Internet concerning STP, and its based purely on anecdotal information rather than facts...
