As a friend and I were saying earlier this evening, it's not the biggest surprise in the world that Scott Weiland died relatively young. He's the one with the polka dot silk shirt. In fact he showed self-destructive tendencies far enough back so that his living and creating as long as he did counts as a kind of triumph, if only against himself.

Not a singer who always got a lot of respect, but I liked him.

This is a very sweet song that you chose. STP is another band we haven't followed but he seems to have had a very nice voice. It's always sad when someone dies long before what might be considered a natural time.

It's kind of an atypical song of theirs. To be honest some of their music does seem a little phoned in, but then there were curve balls that demonstrated otherwise.
