“Make America Great Again!”
Stone Temple Pilots sound a little like a somewhat laid back Creed
and have never received the attention they deserve: light up
and have a listen to this cool playlist
from the album “Thank You”!

See Exclusive: Tommy Black Recalls His Bond With Late Friend and Bandmate Scott Weiland, Yahoo, December 8, 2016, by Lyndsey Parker:
It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since Stone Temple Pilots frontman and ‘90s alt-rock legend Scott Weiland was found dead on his tour bus in Bloomington, Minn., at age 48. Tommy Black, Weiland’s close friend and bandmate for 10 years, in particular finds that fact difficult to grasp — but not because the time has passed quickly for him.
“It feels like five years to me,” Black tells Yahoo Music, in his first official solo interview since the tragedy. “It feels like a lot more than a year. It feels like it’s been a lot of years, for some reason. It was a horrible year… I still feel a little uncomfortable talking about it all, to be honest.”
Tommy, you are beloved to America as of course was Scott Weiland. I do pray to God the Father almighty that you may find peace over the loss of your special friend Scott. Please, take heart, I’m sure he is a better place. Amen.
Please feel encouraged to visit the Official Stone Temple Pilots website, and check out their official Twitter feed, from which the included photograph of their deceased band member Scott was taken, and courtesy of PBS. If you’d like, stop by STP’s Facebook page. If you’re really into them, you might want to read about Stone Temple Pilot’s entire discography on Wikipedia, which usually provides this service. (Wikipedia is a completely free online encyclopedia, and it’s great for bloggers like me because everything there almost is Creative Commons licensed.) If you like a grungy alternative rock sound with a little touch of rap in it, STP is your kind of band. Please also feel encouraged to choose from a wide selection of high quality (256 kbs), digital rights free mp3’s at Amazon.com. While some prefer the sound of Apple iTunes format, for me, along with many other true computer geeks, I stay with mp3’s and feel that this format is timeless. Therefore I purchase all my music from Amazon and highly recommend it. Once you’ve bought it there, you can always download your music to any device (computer or cell phone).
Wikipedia has the following summary of the band Stone Temple Pilots, (STP):
Stone Temple Pilots (sometimes abbreviated as STP) are an American rock band from San Diego, California, that originally consisted of Scott Weiland (lead vocals), brothers Dean (guitar) and Robert DeLeo (bass, backing vocals), and Eric Kretz (drums). Since the band’s formation in 1989, its line-up remained unchanged until the firing of Weiland in 2013, who was replaced by Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington. In 2015, Bennington left the band to focus solely on Linkin Park. On December 3, 2015, Weiland was found dead on his tour bus prior to a performance with his band The Wildabouts. In 2016, the band launched an online audition for a new lead vocalist.
After forming in 1989 under the name Mighty Joe Young, the band signed with Atlantic Records and changed its name to Stone Temple Pilots. The band found immediate success in 1993 upon releasing their debut album, Core (1992), and went on to become one of the most commercially successful bands of the 1990s. The band released four more studio albums: Purple (1994), Tiny Music… Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop (1996), No. 4 (1999) and Shangri-La Dee Da (2001), before separating in 2002, after which the band members partook in various projects (most notably Velvet Revolver and Army of Anyone). The band eventually reconvened in 2008 for a reunion tour, released a new self-titled album in 2010, and actively toured until Chester Bennington’s departure. The band’s only material with Bennington was the EP High Rise in 2013.
While initially displaying a sound typically identified as grunge early on in its career, further releases from the band expressed a variety of influences, including psychedelic rock, bossa nova and classic rock. The band’s evolution throughout the 1990s and early 2000s involved several tumultuous periods of commercial highs and lows, brought about in part by Weiland’s well-publicized struggles with drug addiction.
