Stone Temple Pilots Stream 1997 Live Version Of “Tumble In The Rough”

Stone Temple Pilots are streaming a live version of “Tumble In The Rough” that was recorded during their 1997 “MTV Spring Break” set at Club La Vela in Panama City Beach, FL. This version of the track will appear on the new 25th anniversary edition of “Tiny Music… Songs From The Vatican Gift Shop.“ That effort will be released on July 23 and more details on it can be found HERE. Guitarist Dean DeLeo told Consequence the following:

“‘Tumble In The Rough‘ actually came about from Scott wrestling with a guitar at the house in Santa Ynez where we wrote and recorded the whole record. We had noticed him sitting around for a couple days just banging out those chords. The verse riff that you hear where it goes from a G to a B-flat, he came up with that lick first and we kind of built the whole song around it. From there it metamorphosed into Robert writing the opening and ending licks. We arranged it, Scott wrote the lyrics and melody, and it was really as simple as that. All you need to do is read the lyrics to hear where Scott was at on that one. It’s pretty autobiographical to say the least.”
