Biography

(1986 – 2003 , 2008 – present)

Stone Temple Pilots (commonly referred to as “STP”) is a Grammy Award-winning American band consisting of Scott Weiland (vocals), brothers Robert DeLeo (bass guitar, vocals) and Dean DeLeo (guitar), and Eric Kretz (drums, percussion). The band was originally active from 1986 to 2003, and reunited in 2008.

The band’s five studio albums have sold over 17 million copies in the United States alone. The band has had fifteen top ten singles on the Billboard rock charts, including six number ones, and one number one album on the pop charts (1994’s Purple). In 1993, the band won a Grammy for “Best Hard Rock Performance” for their song “Plush”. Stone Temple Pilots were also ranked at number 40 on VH1’s The 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock. In 2003, the band released the greatest hits compilation Thank You. Around this time, band members began going their separate ways. After the band’s break-up in 2003 , Weiland became the frontman of Velvet Revolver with former members of Guns N’ Roses. The DeLeo brothers formed the band Army Of Anyone with Richard Patrick of the band Filter. Kretz founded Bomb Shelter Studios in Los Angeles.

The band reunited in 2008 after Weiland split from Velvet Revolver, kicking off the tour at the Rock on the Range festival in Columbus, Ohio. The band released their self titled sixth album in 2010.

    No. 4 is a very overlooked record, tons of my favorite STP tunes are off that record

    After sampling 3 tracks, I have to agree...Chester's vocals are actually pretty fantastic in STP, but the instrumentals themselves seem to be a lot less interesting than they used to be back in the Purple/No. 4 days...

    Bennington makes it sound plain and boring.

    I love Scott, but he needs to get his shit together. Chester is doing an awesome job with STP. If you're defending Scoot and saying STP is dead, you don't know anything about the band. DeLeo brothers almost wrote every song of STP, Scott was the frontman. He used drugs, killed his voice and almost himself.

    dat90skidd, how could you not understand - Scott had similar hair as the Pearl Jam vocalist for a short while therefore STP were copying Pearl Jam.

    I never understood the Pearl Jam comparisons. STP is better anyway.

    Au contraire, Weiland is apparently very replaceable. Chester is surprisingly not as annoying with STP as he is with Linkin Park. They've basically gone the same way as Alice in Chains: they sound virtually the same as they ever did, barring the replacement singer.
