Stone Temple Pilots

"Stone Temple Pilots" (abbreviated "STP") was a popular band in the 1990s, comprised of Scott Weiland (vocals), brothers Robert (bass) and Dean DeLeo (guitar) and Eric Kretz (drums).

STP's five albums have sold over 17 million copies. The band had fifteen top ten singles on the Billboard rock charts, including six # 1's, and one # 1 album on the pop charts (1994's ''Purple''). STP won the 1994 Grammy for the "Best Hard Rock Performance with Vocal" for their song ''Plush''. In addition to their original material, they have also covered songs by Led Zeppelin, the Doors, and the Beatles. These bands were some of the groups cited by the band as its influences.

In 2003, the band released the greatest hits compilation ''Thank You''. Around this time, band members began going their separate ways. Since the band's demise, Weiland has moved on to become the frontman of Velvet Revolver with former members of Guns N' Roses. The DeLeo brothers have recently announced the formation of a new band, Army of Anyone, with Richard Patrick of Filter. Kretz founded Bomb Shelter Studios http://www.bombshelterstudios.com/ in Los Angeles.
