Stone Temple Pilots Share 1997 Live Performance & Previously Unreleased Video For “And So I Know”

Stone Temple Pilots have shared footage from their 1997 “MTV Spring Break” set at Club La Vela in Panama City Beach, FL, along with a previously unreleased video for “And So I Know.” You can check out both of those below. The clips coincide with the release of the new 25th anniversary edition of “Tiny Music… Songs From The Vatican Gift Shop.“

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.”

New Biopic On Late Stone Temple Pilots Frontman Scott Weiland In The Works

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a new biopic focusing on the life of the late Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots) is currently in the works. The film, which is titled “Paper Heart,” will be based on his memoir “Not Dead & Not For Sale.”

Dark Pictures and producer Orian Williams began working on the movie after acquiring the rights to Weiland’s book from his estate. Jennifer Erwin, who co-founded Dark Pictures with Anne Beagan, will be writing the script for the biopic and she had the following to say about it:

“It’s an honor to have the trust to tell Scott’s story and the ability to portray the lesser known sides of him — the loving and tender man he was, the high school athlete he was, the melancholy soul he was and the legendary frontman that he will always be.”

Beagan continued:

“Scott was glamorous, complicated and wounded. His childhood had a big effect on his struggles with addiction.”

Williams added:

“We want to make the most authentic film possible about this remarkable artist. Beyond Scott’s page-turning memoir, connecting with those closest to Scott is important to get the details right.”

Stone Temple Pilots Stream Early Version Of “Trippin’ On A Hole In A Paper Heart”

Stone Temple Pilots are streaming an early version of their song “Trippin’ On A Hole In A Paper Heart.” 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. Eric Kretz told Stereogum the following:

“So usually we would have one or two songs per album where we would record the music and not have any vocal ideas to accompany us. With this Early version of ‘Trippin‘, Scott had the rhythm tracks to work off of and this was his first day at singing the song. I really enjoy hearing him trying to work out the tongue twisting verse lyrics that are such a great counter rhythm to the music in the verses.”
