Seeing Stone Temple Pilots at this point in history is not just a concert, its nearly a Ripleys Believe It or Not! attraction. Yes, much-maligned lead singer Scott Weiland is still kicking. Yes, theyre back together despite a breakup and Weilands stint in Velvet Revolver (some of the rest of the guys in the band started a group called Army of Anyone, but you probably missed that along with most people). They released their first album since 2001 last year, and appear to be back on track after rescheduling some shows last fall. Yeah, its been a long time since the SoCal-originated band hit it big with tunes such as Plush and Interstate Love Song, but between this and the recent reformation of Soundgarden, 2011 may be the new 1991.
