One of my favorite deep cuts from Stone Temple Pilot’s Core. This album was a game changer for me. Rough news tonight from the West Coast via Dave Navarro on Twitter that Scott Weiland died.
One of the greatest front men of the 1990s, possibly of all time. I remember exactly where I was when I first heard this album, Derby Academy. Yeah, go ahead laugh. I was at summer camp. This cute boy had his discman with him. We were in a drawing class and he asked me if I wanted to listen. Of course, boy crazy gal that I am, I did. I was hooked the minute I listened to it. I don’t remember how I got the CD, but I did. I then remember listening to this album while laying in bed at home (way too loud of course) thinking I had found the answer to all the universe’s questions. And thus began a life-long love of rock, heavy metal, big guitar rifts, badass bass players, and any man that dared play a guitar or sing with all of their being.
Let us know “what the rents like in heaven,” Scott. Rest easy, man. You deserve some peace!
