Yes, the former not-Vedder turned former not-Axl revealed a new look when he, the DeLeo brothers and that scrawny drummer dude performed their tiny music at the Rock On The Range Festival in Columbus, Ohio. The 17-song set actually featured a track from Shangri-La Dee Da, “Coma,” along with the hit singles and Core album tracks. Hey, what about “Art School Girl?”

Bassist Robert DeLeo told The Pulse of Radio that he wasn’t nervous about the band making its comeback in front of such a huge audience. “No, I just feel like there’s a lot of myself feeling comfortable with what I do onstage and, you know, sometimes you get in the way of yourself,” he said. “And I think we all have those issues once in a while, and I think just keeping an open attitude and just trying to have a positive attitude and enjoy this would be great.”
Joining STONE TEMPLE PILOTS on Saturday were FINGER ELEVEN, SHINEDOWN, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, SERJ TANKIAN, STAIND, DISTURBED, ASHES DIVIDE, AIRBOURNE, RED, 10 YEARS, THEORY OF A DEADMAN and FILTER.
Hope somebody remembered to yell “Army Of Anyone reunion!” during Filter’s set. Here is a completely fucking ridiculous clip of STP playing “Coma” live in 2000, so we can see what we’ve been surviving without all these years.
I forgot that Weiland was rocking a Night Porter shtick before Velvet Revolver! Ugh.
