I am still in shock and find it hard to believe that Scott Weiland, the former lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver is really gone. He was one of the most gifted singer/songwriters of the last 20 plus years and now he is gone. So as a tribute to Scott Weiland, I am dedicating this week’s Single Of The Week to him as I cover my favorite song. The song I chose to use for this week is Interstate Love Song which was off of the band’s second album Purple. I can still remember where I was when I first heard the song and it was at a Christmas party at my cousins house. He put the record on and when the opening riff came on, I was immediately curious, but when the rock guitars blast off, I was instantly hooked. Scott Weiland once admitted that the theme of the song’s lyrics dealt with, “honesty, lack of honesty, my new relationship with heroin.” He said he had lied to his girlfriend about using heroin and imagined that the lyrics were what, “I imagined what was going through her mind when I wrote, ‘Waiting on a Sunday afternoon for what I read between the lines, your lies, feelin’ like a hand in rusted shame, so do you laugh or does it cry? Reply?” This is honestly my favorite Stone Temple Pilots song no matter what the lyrics were about. Check out it below and R.I.P. Scott Weiland (1967-2015)
