Subscribe to on

After the tragic death of their former frontman, the surviving members of Stone Temple Pilots have posted a tribute to Scott Weiland. Watch it above.

In the video, the three members (Robert DeLeo, Dean DeLeo and Eric Kretz) sit in a studio and play the multi-track recording of “Atlanta” from their 1999 album No. 4. “Dean and Eric and I wanted to honor Scott, and we thought the best way to do that would be musically,” said bassist Robert DeLeo. “We chose this song because we feel it represents one of the times in our career that Scott was truly at his best. When you hear this track, we hope to share in the same feeling and spirit each of us had while recording it. The four of us, in a room, capturing a moment in time on tape. So enjoy this song and the depth of this brilliant performance from Scott.”

After Weiland died earlier this month, the members of STP posted a letter to him online, saying “You were gifted beyond words, Scott. Part of that gift was part of your curse. With deep sorrow for you and your family, we are saddened to see you go.”
