Did you know that there are two conflicting stories of how Scott Weiland and Robert DeLeo met ? One was that Weiland and DeLeo met at a Black Flag concert in Long Beach, California in 1985. They began discussing their girlfriends, only to realize they were dating the same woman. However, instead of letting this come between them, they developed a bond and formed a band after they each subsequently broke it off with the girl. Weiland presented a different version of meeting Robert in his autobiography, stating that Weiland and his friends—guitarist Corey Hicock and drummer David Allin—pursued Robert after witnessing him play live with him sitting in during sets at various gigs with their band Soi Disant…either way, along with Dean DeLeo and Eric Kretz, originally called Mighty Joe Young, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS went on to change the sound of music.
Inspired by the STP Motor Oil stickers that the band members were fans of in their youth, various ideas on the initials “STP” were shared by the band, including “Shirley Temple’s P*****” and Stereo Temple Pirates. They eventually settled on the name “Stone Temple Pilots”.

ROCK AND ROLL FANTASY CAMP REVIEW OF THE DAY:
I truly can say there is not one aspect of my time at RRFC that I did not thoroughly enjoy. There is so much more to it than the headliners and iconic venues. Like most experiences it is the people that make the difference and I have met so many great ones at camp – campers, counselors, staff and stars. Matt H.

ROCK AND ROLL FACT OF THE DAY:
2007, Ozzy Osbourne claimed his reputation had been tarnished after a party supposedly involving him was organised by US police officers to round up missing criminal suspects. Over 500 people in North Dakota with outstanding arrest warrants were sent invitations and more than 30 suspects turned up. Osbourne said it was “insulting” that his name had been used but police argued it was a “creative” way to fight crime. Ozzy had been selected because he was due to play a gig in a nearby arena, which was used to explain why he would supposedly have attending the party.
