    90's Legends gone too soon

    A bit unorthodox for this site, but necessary for remembrance purposes and because many of us are not defined by a specific decade, but moreso a specific time in our lives. If we remember the 80's, we certainly remember the early 90's.

    You've seen the 80's Legends thread...

    ... now we are sad to show you some of the icons we remember from the early 90's that have since past on (not necessarily recently). R.i.P

    Scott Weiland

    Lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, passed away Thursday at a tour stop in Bloomington, Minn., with his band The Wildabouts.

    I had the opportunity to see STP open for Red Hot Chili Peppers in a concert in the late '90s.
    It was one of those concerts that has stayed so clear in my mind and I always wanted to see STP
    perform together again. Weiland was a hypnotizing performer every moment he was on stage. He drew the crowd in effortlessly. Thank you for providing music to help me navigate my youth.

    RIP. I enjoyed his sound during the time period. It's interesting to find out he was from San Jose, near our home town. I wish I had gone to that concert! I saw Red Hot Chili Peppers perform around that time as a closer to a huge Live 105 BFD line-up, and that alone was epic. Having both of them together is hard to imagine.
