Scott Weiland Doesnⴴ Rule Out Stp Reunion

Former Stone Temple Pilots and current Velvet Revolver lead singer Scott Weiland revealed in a recent Washington Post interview that he wouldn´t rule out a reunion someday with his former bandmates.

"I feel that there could be a better final chapter, a better bookend. If all the planets line up, you never know what might happen one day."

Weiland also explained how proud he was of the work that he did with STP, and the legacy that he left behind.

"We´ve written close to 18 Top 20 hits, and many of them are still played on the radio today. That´s the legacy we wanted to create. We wanted to be played on rock radio for the next 20-30 years. That´s actually happening. The only thing that´s left unfinished is the completion of the story."

While taking a trip down memory lane, Weiland actually admitted that STP´s music, especially their single "Plush" was rightfully compared to Pearl Jam. The band was frequently criticized as a "a Pearl Jam knockoff" when they broke out in the early 90´s.

"I think on the song ´Plush,´ you can make that connection to Pearl Jam just like you can make the connection from Rod Stewart´s song "Hot Legs" to the Rolling Stones. ´Plush´ happened to be our breakout single. You have to remember that at the time, Pearl Jam was getting slagged brutally by Nirvana and the media. They weren´t considered critics´ darlings until Kurt (Cobain) passed away. And then he (Eddie Vedder) sort of took over as the disturbed and bitter genius, I guess."
