Scott Weiland - 1967-2015

I was in a bar in Rockford, Illinois the first time I heard "Stone Temple Pilots," and knowing me it was while eating nachos at O'Brien's and drinking some God-awful beer.  I remember that because of the debate that began to rage between another patron and the bartender, and the fact that I had to get involved.  The argument had very little to do with the band itself rather the patron was angry that they were playing such garbage and he went on to argue about how there were no longer any good bands out there performing and as I chimed in I understood the concept of "grunge."
