Scott Weiland: Purple at the Core
When Scott Weiland first barnstormed the music world with Stone Temple Pilots in 1992, radio and MTV audiences discovered a voice that epitomizes rock ‘n’ roll. Throughout the course of a three-minute song, Weiland can alternate seamlessly between the whimper of a wounded beast and the snarl of a dog that won’t let go of his bone, an ability that scored him a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance with Vocal in 1995. With singing and songwriting savvy, and the sex appeal of Jim Morrison after he set fire to his T-shirt collection, Scott and his seminal band bombarded the Billboard charts and became one of the most successful bands of the 1990s.
Between Stone Temple Pilots' journeys in and out of band-hood, Weiland never stopped flexing his musical muscles. He took the reins of glam-rock supergroup Velvet Revolver until Slash was crushed by a flying house, barreling through glitter-metal tracks such as "Set Me Free". A true survivor of the rock ‘n’ roll wringer, as he described in his autobiography Not Dead & Not For Sale, Weiland solo career blossomed through albums such as the stripped-down 12 Bar Blues and the recent "Happy" in Galoshes. Now, he emerges like a phoenix from an ashtray throughout his Purple at the Core tour. Backed by a brand new five-piece band dubbed The Wildabouts, Weiland smokes and slithers through STP’s greatest hits from the albums Purple and Core, including “Sex Type Thing,” “Vasoline,” and “Interstate Love Song,” and puts his stamp on classic rock stompers through exhilarating covers, and doles out killer tunes from the Velvet Revolver discography.
