(Vocal/instrumental group, 1992–2001, 2008–present)

Scott Weiland (vocals) met Robert DeLeo (bass) at a Black Flag gig, then recruited Dean DeLeo (guitar) and Eric Kretz (drums). Core (1992) and Purple (1994) made an impact as well as spawning accusations that their thunderous style was purloined from Pearl Jam. With Weiland in and out of rehab, the band stalled when promoting their third album but continued to release records until 2001. Weiland fronted Velvet Revolver until STP’s 2008 reunion.
