Demons and other issues aside, there’s no denying that Scott Weiland had one hell of a voice, and in a video tribute, Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz showcased his incredible gift.
Embedded below, the surviving members of Stone Temple Pilots gather in a studio to listen to the master recording of the track “Atlanta” off the band’s 1999 album No. 4.
In a statement to Rolling Stone, the band felt the song “really highlights the true brilliance of Scott…Having the opportunity to listen to these tracks individually reveal the beauty of Scott’s lyrical and melodic gift. This is one of the many musical moments we shared together. It is in this way we would like to remember Scott.”
