I guess that you would have to be of a certain age to know exactly what the Stone Temple Pilots really were--a fraud.
Sometimes, you just wish a band would go away. You know they don't have anything to say anymore and you know it's all a lie. The grunge bands and the popular American bands of the 1990s were never really worth getting into and so I just stayed away from them. When it came time to market Stone Temple Pilots, why wouldn't they make a video where Scott Weiland looked like Eddie Vedder and sounded like him, too?
Marketing 101. And, in their old age, they forgot all the basics and have turned into a joke. When they finally decide to go away, will anyone notice?
