STP is an American rock band from San Diego, California, that originally consisted of Scott Weiland (lead vocals), brothers Dean DeLeo (guitar) and Robert DeLeo (bass, backing vocals), and Eric Kretz (drums). The band’s line-up remained unchanged from its formation in 1989 until the firing of Weiland in February 2013.
After forming in 1989 under the name Mighty Joe Young, the band signed with Atlantic Records and changed its name to Stone Temple Pilots, inspired by the STP Motor Oil stickers that the band members were fans of in their youth.
The band’s debut album, Core, released in 1992, was a major commercial success and STP went on to become one of the most commercially successful bands of the 1990s, selling more than 18 million albums in the United States and 40 million worldwide.
Greatest hits: “Interstate Love Song”, “Plush”, “Big Empty”, “Down”, “Dead & Bloated”, “Trippin’ On A Hole In A Paper Heart”, “Creep”, “Vasoline”, “Lady Picture Show” and “Sex Type Thing”.
In 1994, the band won a Grammy for “Best Hard Rock Performance” for the song “Plush” from the album Core. Stone Temple Pilots were also ranked No. 40 on VH1’s The 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.
In 1995, Weiland was convicted of buying crack cocaine. He was sentenced to one year of probation.
His drug use did not end after his sentence, but increased, and he moved into a hotel room for two months, next door to Courtney Love, where she said he “shot drugs the whole time” with her.
Weiland revealed in 2001 he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
Weiland was found dead on his tour bus on December 3, 2015, in Bloomington, Minnesota, while on tour with the Wildabouts.
The medical examiner later determined it to be an accidental overdose of cocaine, alcohol, and methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA); the examiner’s office also noted his atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, history of asthma, and prolonged substance abuse in its report.
Weiland was 48.
