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.
It’s the 30th anniversary of the release of Stone Temple Pilots’ debut album, Core. What an incredible debut it was.
Released September 29th, 1992. It would eventually peak at #3 on Billboard and has sold more than 8 million copies.
I was able to see STP with the chaotic Scott Weiland in concert twice in the early 90’s. Man we really liked those first three albums.
