Stone Temple Pilots, with Black Francis

Stone Temple Pilots are back together, for the time being anyway.
Stone Temple Pilots are back together, for the time being anyway.

Scott Weiland had barely wiped Slash's bootprint from his ass when he and his Stone Temple Pilots bandmates announced their own reunion tour. Seriously. After the singer was kicked out of Velvet Revolver, in a matter of weeks he had hooked up with his old group and set up a nationwide tour. (Meanwhile, the other temperamental, asshole singer Slash used to work with still can't get a new Guns N' Roses album together after 17 years.) STP always seemed a late arrival to the alt-rock party, despite its massive success — which eventually eclipsed that of the bands it ripped off in the mid-'90s — and the group split eight years ago, mostly because the perpetually drunk and drugged Weiland became so unreliable. The other guys (guitarist Dean DeLeo, bassist Robert DeLeo, drummer Eric Kretz) gigged around with various went-nowhere groups like Talk Show and Army of Anyone, while Weiland joined the mega-selling Velvet Revolver...and got drunk, drugged and unreliable all over again. With Weiland's history, chances are good STP's tour could come to a screeching halt at any minute, so better go see them now.
