With a lot of troubled history to fan the flames, rumors are starting to burn higher about the possible demise of the current Stone Temple Pilots tour. After taking the stage at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, Texas more than an hour late on Sunday, STP frontman Scott Weiland seemed a bit off to many in attendance. A review in The Houston Press described Weiland’s behavior onstage as ““….off mentally, a little too meandering and talkative”. Some reports indicate that Weiland mentioned “trading the hard stuff for boozing”. Even so, most in attendance did give his musical performance good marks.
With Scott Weiland’s history of drug and alcohol problems, this behavior could signal a slip back into his old ways and spell the end of another STP tour. Hopefully Weiland will be able to get his act together for upcoming performances. The bands next show is scheduled for Lubbuck, Texas on September 23rd.
