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

STP came out at a bad time. 1993-94 was the popular peak of Seattle-based heavier alternative music. Because of their timing, and because they weren't from the Seattle area but had a similar sound, they were doomed to be considered bandwagon hoppers. Had Core come out a year earlier, at the same time that Ten and Nevermind were released, they probably wouldn't have been insulted so much and would have been considered to be more original.

That being said, the Plush video was...bad. That video alone forever damned them into the grunge knock-off category. Had Scott not dyed his hair red like Kurt Cobain and acted very similar to Eddie Vedder during his performance in that video, the band may have actually escaped that fate. That was what really screwed them, far more than anything else. Beavis and Butthead made fun of the video saying "Eddie Vedder dyed his hair red".
