Stone Temple Pilots Debut New Singer

Stone Temple Pilots have a new singer. The band featuring brothers Rob and Dean DeLeo, which was once fronted by the late Scott Weiland, brought former “X Factor” U.S. contestant Jeff Gutt to the stage at Los Angeles’ Troubadour on Tuesday night (Nov. 14).

Gutt, a Detroit native, competed on the show in 2012, singing a moving rendition of Leonard Cohen’s classic “Hallelujah.” That he was a relative unknown to the crowd of rock fans was not lost on the 41-year-old: he wore a name tag that read, “Hello, my name is Jeff.”

The band, however, was very welcoming and gave the singer the opportunity to shine. They kicked off the show with “Down” and ran through some of STP’s greatest hits, including “Plush,” “Interstate Love Song,” and “Wicked Garden.” They also debuted a new song, called “Meadow,” and invited MC5’s Wayne Kramer to the stage for the classic “Kick Out the Jams.”

The band treated Gutt’s debut as a big event, barring cell phones from the 500-capacity venue. The show was sponsored by SiriusXM show and is scheduled to on Howard Stern’s Howard 101 and Lithium on Friday.

See the full set list below:

Down
Wicked Garden
Vasoline
Coma
Interstate Love Song
Plush
Big Empty
Still Remains
Meadow
Kick Out The Jams
Sex Type Thing
Trippin’
Piece of Pie

    Album Review: 'Queen & Slim: The Soundtrack'

    “Queen & Slim,” the film, traffics in sudden tragedy and symbolic terror as it portrays the violence of self-defense and self-awareness in stark, painful terms. It deserves an equally audacious score and soundtrack, a job that has gone to another Devonté Hynes, the British singer, songwriter, guitarist, record producer and director in his guise of Blood [...]
