A while ago I wrote a review for the new STP single “Meadow”. If you haven’t heard it yet I’ll just give you a brief summary –
It was a just a grade above mediocrity, which is NOT Stone Temple Pilots. Scott is the only voice for them.
Guys, I love Stone Temple Pilots. But now that Scott is gone, the band is too. It’s never going to be the same. Never going to go back to normal. Part of me doesn’t want one of my favorite bands ever to break up, but anther part of me is saying that the new singer and the rest of the band could make a new good band.
Like with Foo Fighters. When Nirvana died, Dave Grohl started them! And they weren’t as good as Nirvana, but they are good. And I’d hate for Jeff Gutt’s talent go to waste, because he’s actually not bad. Regarded, he’s not Scott. We love Scott, and he was incredible – don’t make fool comparisons between good and amazing.
My point is – the band doesn’t need to stop playing music because they lost Scott. But they do need to quite being “Stone Temple Pilots”. Because after the new album it’s clear – the band has already broken up. It’s not Stone Temple Pilots anymore. It’s Jeff Gutt and the original members. It’s not the same. And it sucks because this is one of my FAVORITE BANDS EVER!
I’m so aggravated at drugs for doing this to Scott and killing the world of a great man. Drugs stopped us from hearing more of his music, and I’m upset all the time about it. Because it’s not just Scott that got lost in drugs…
The list goes on. Countless, insanely talented musicians we love have been taken from us because of drugs. And it fricking drives the crap out of me.
Scott is missed every day, and it’s taken a lot to see him and the band go. I love you Scott, and I’ll still always love Stone Temple Pilots. Their music will be forever cherished.
Rest In Peace💔, 1967-2015 😢
What do you guys think STP should do?
