AP080517031375.jpgComing out an hour late, forgetting lyrics, slurring apologetic introductions that get cut off by visibly annoyed band members–sounds like Weiland is back and better than ever! When Slash wakes up in a couple of hours and grabs The New York Times before enjoying his bagel (but after putting on on slippers, a bath towel, and a snake), the description of Stone Temple Pilots’ New York show will undoubtedly inspire a smirk.

AP080517031441.jpgYes, 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?”

Van Nuys Got 14 Minutes To Save The Weil

wenn147566.jpgShut up, that pun is awesome. You will not be able to get it out of your head. And it refers to the 14 minutes that Weiland spent considering the errors of his ways in a jail cell in Van Nuys, Calif. What do you think he thought about as he marked away the minutes on the wall? Was he filled with gratitude at the forgiving nature of the DeLeo brothers? Did he resent the way Slash must be chortling at his predicament? Was he thinking about whether this would be the time he finally cleaned up and got his life together? Did he wish the cops would take more time with his wounded hand, because it likes to heal, he likes to steal? TMZ, please get your hands on the security tape.

Scott Weiland and Steve Albini, Together At Last

AP080202054765.jpgYes, I know Steve Albini worked with Bush, but Bush was trying very, very hard to be cool at the time. All that “oh, I love Jesus Lizard” stuff Gavin said, I believe it was genuine. And yes, Albini worked with Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, but come on, that was Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. Scott Weiland, though? A Scott Weiland that in Velvet Revolver at the time this must have been planned? A Scott Weiland that was being too obnoxious for Slash to stomach? A Scott Weiland bringing along the drummer from No Doubt? I’m not saying “dude, Albini sold out.” I’m saying, “man, I hope they paid his mortgage and studio equipment bills forty times over in exchange for putting a mic in front of that choad.”

Stone Temple Pilots’ Big Banging Reunion Plans Seem Just A Bit Premature

stpppp.jpgWeiland and the DeLeo brothers haven’t even played the first show on their 2008 comeback tour yet, but that hasn’t stopped bassist Robert DeLeo from mouthing off to Billboard about the band heading back into the studio to milk their current detente for all it’s worth record another album. “I think new material will come probably after this tour. I think the whole thing now is kind of getting back and re-acclimating ourselves to the songs that we know. I think that’s gonna make for a better atmosphere and better performances … instead of doing a new record.” Well, who knows, maybe all their problems back in the day stemmed from being cooped up in a studio together for too long. (See? Positive thinking!) I shouldn’t rain on their honeymoon-after-the-second-marriage parade–instead, I should just hope that they don’t get inspired by the retro atmosphere of the tour to write new songs like “Plush,” but that they do get re-inspired by “Big Bang Baby,” because that song is still awesome:

AP080407032087.jpgThe reunited Stone Temple Pilots performed for the first time since 2002 at the Harry Houdini Estate in LA on Monday night. The brief set consisted of three singles from Purple, three from Tiny Music…From The Vatican Gift Shop and Core‘s “Plush.” I guess they’re saving those deep album cuts from Shangri-La Dee Da for the big tents. Video peppered with off-camera snark after the jump.

2008_2_22virginfest.jpgThe line-up for the Calgary edition of the Virgin Festival has been announced, and I recognize the names of a whopping eight out of the 19 bands listed on the official website, including Americans Stone Temple Pilots, the Flaming Lips, and Face To Face. (Didn’t even know they were still together when I played “Disconnected” on the jukebox this weekend.) Canadians (or border-dwelling Americans) can get the rest of line-up by clicking on the logo to the left. [Virgin Festival Calgary/HT: Matt Learoyd]
