Jan. 30, 2009

An hour after his scheduled start time, Scott Weiland took the stage not to a taut rock riff or a triumphant Stone Temple Pilots hit but… a 20-minute blues jam. With reggae undertones. On which he played Theremin. With his bac...

Tonight @ The Pabst Theater - 8 p.m.

After spending much of last year on the road with Velvet Revolver and then his reunited Stone Temple Pilots, Scott Weiland is touring again, this time behind his new solo album, “Happy” in Galoshes, his first in 10 years. Though the album, which he self-released, hasn’t attracted much commercial attention, it finds Weiland in fine form, rocking his way through a mostly gleeful set of David Bowie-ish glam rock and pausing occasionally...

In the last two years I've interviewed a trio of grunge veterans�Chris Cornell, Gavin Rossdale and Scott Weiland�and all three struck me as sad, albeit in different ways. Chris Cornell was friendly, open and chatty, and also remarkably defensive. Unprompted, he floated an absurd theory about why the reception was so cold to his crappy 2007 solo album, a scattershot set of overproduced s...

Scott Weiland toured a lot in the last year-too much, by his own account. The singer started 2008 on the road with Velvet Revolver, his band with three Guns N' Roses vets.

"It was cool," Weiland says, "but we ended up touring longer than we should have. It was supposed to be four months, and the first four months were a lot of fun. But I think six months was a bit much when you're...

Tonight @ the Marcus Amphitheater

With the band still clocking major play on both hard-rock and modern-rock radio, the timing was perfect for a Stone Temple Pilots reunion—except for one small thing: Singer Scott Weiland still hasn’t concurred the personal problems that induced the band to break up five years ago. Reviews of this tour's...

After weeks of rumors, Velvet Revolver announced yesterday that it was parting with singer Scott Weiland. Slash�s group will carry on with another singer. I�ve resisted asking this question for years for fear of sounding naive, but what is it about hard-rock culture that makes singers so replaceable? I made a quick, off-the-top of my head list of bands that have switched singers, and wh...

Tonight @ The Rave - 8:00 PM

A group comprised of the core of the classic Guns N’ Roses line-up and former Stone Temple Pilots addict Scott Weiland, Velvet Revolver has thus far largely lived up to the tricky challenge of selling themselves as a new commodity without alienating old fans. The group avoids nostalgia-act pandering . . .
