Stone Temple Pilots were so good. I agree that Core is one of the greatest debut albums of all time. Every song on that album is just fantastic. It was so great to be a fan of the pilots in the early days. Weiland was such a good front man. But like so many bands there was a double edge sword. Just the right amount of booze and drugs. Too much and Weiland was just a mess and the band also suffered.
I really still greatly enjoy Core and (Purple). Tiny Music... From The Vatican Gift Shop is a little spotty and weak at times. No. 4 and so on get rare rotations with me.
I loved those guys.
