Stone Temple Pilots were able to make alternative rock into stadium rock. STP and fellow rock bands Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains became major stars in the early ‘90s. The influences of those bands are apparent in their music, but Stone Temple Pilots do manage to change things around a bit. They are more concerned with tight song structure and riffs than punk rage. Their closest antecedents are not the Sex Pistols or Hüsker Dü; instead the band resembles arena rock acts from the '70s -- it's popular hard rock that sounds good on the radio and in concert. Stone Temple Pilots have undeniably catchy riffs and production; there's a reason why over three million people bought their debut album, Core, and why their second album, Purple, shot to number one when it was released in 1994.
Since the moment they appeared on the scene in 1992, Stone Temple Pilots dominated the decade from start to finish, racking up 15 hit singles on the Billboard Top Ten, winning a “Best Hard Rock Performance” GRAMMY® Award in 1994 for “Plush,” and having their five albums sell 40 million copies worldwide. Of all their peers, STP alone had sustained commercial success, earning greater critical acclaim with each release, building a body of work that remains popular and its enduring acclaim has only highlighted the absence of the band, who quietly went their separate ways after the turn-of the millennium release of Shangri-La Dee Da.
In 2003 STP lead singer Scott Weiland joined Velvet Revolver, a hard rock super group consisting of former Guns N' Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan, and Matt Sorum, with Dave Kushner formerly of punk band Wasted Youth. Velvet Revolver ruled post ‘90s rock radio and received one GRAMMY® Award for "Slither" in 2005 as Best Hard Rock Performance. The song "Fall to Pieces" received a nomination for Song of the Year/Rock Radio in 2005. The band won the Best International Newcomer Kerrang! Award in 2004 while they were nominated for a Rock Artist of the Year Billboard Music Award in 2005. Weiland left the band in 2008, and reported to the press recently the possibility of a 2012 reunion.
