5/22/14: Stone Temple Pilots


On most days, I like my sky above me and my ground below me. Too bad these days ain’t like most days. These days, my life has been relentlesssssss. I’ll just leave it at that because I have no time to elaborate. Good news is on the horizon. Soon enough summer will be here, which means an extra hour of the Fuzz Factory every Thursday. There is no downside to that fact.

This week, I did play Stone Temple Pilots on the Compare/Contrast Feature. Mixed in were solo songs, etc. However, I did intentionally only play ballads from STP. WHY? Because they do them so damn well. Stone Temple Pilots (in spite of Scott Weiland’s personal issues) have continued to improve their craft. They began their career as a Pearl Jam/Alice In Chains hybrid and evolved into a much more original sound highlighted by extremely well crafted glam rock songs and intensely personal rock ballads. Perhaps you did not know this and that’s another reason why I’m here.

Don’t forget to tune in every Thursday from 8-10 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org).
