I've been SO busy lately, trying to post stuff on my own (without guest help) has been difficult (once
again thanks to my guest-posters, you are the greatest)...... I wanted to get to this the other day when Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots passed away. Of course, this comes as no great shock, Scott had well documented drug problems for years...... still, I thought he was a decent vocalist from a decent band of the great buried grunge era, Stone Temple Pilots, to me, were not in the Nirvana/Pearl Jam level of bands that reinvigorated rock n roll in the 1990's, but they were no doubt the second string, if you get what I'm saying.......first two albums, "Core" and "Purple" were quite good.
Kurt Cobain, Layne Staley, and now Scott Weiland....... great vocalists of the grunge era, whose music made my life a bit better, taken from us because they couldn't contain their demons....I know what it's like, and I'm not critical of them in the least....... rather, I am grateful that I got to "know" them a bit, and they left a mark of contribution upon MY life at least, and I assume upon the lives of many others.
RIP Scott, thanks for the music.
