Scott Weiland at Silver Legacy on June 8th
Wednesday April 17, 2013 Scott Weiland, an American musician, lyricist, and vocalist, most notably known for his work with Grammy Award-winning rock band Stone Temple Pilots, and his five-year career with supergroup Velvet Revolver is performing one night only. Silver Legacy welcomes Scott Weiland to the Grande Exposition Hall on Saturday, June 8 at 8 p.m.
As is one of the most successful frontmen to emerge from the 1990′s, he is well-known for his flamboyant and energetic onstage persona and for constantly changing his appearance and vocal style.
Releasing albums like Core, that spawned hits like “Sex Type Thing”, “Wicked Garden”, “Creep”, and “Plush” lead them to become one of the most influential bands of the grunge movement, the music genre that was started in Seattle in the late eighties and became rock and roll’s central movement in the early-mid 1990s. Weiland has cites Jim Morrison and David Bowie as more influential on his vocal techniques and sound. Core was extremely successful, eventually being certified 8x platinum by the RIAA.
Weiland and STP released Purple, which saw the development of a more distinctive identity for the band. While still a clear continuation of their previous techniques, the album featured a more “classic rock” sound, and had a mixture of punk, bossa nova, and acoustic songs. Like Core, Purple was a big success for the band, spawning three hit singles “Big Empty”, “Vasoline”, and “Interstate Love Song” and selling over 6 million copies.
