These guys tried twice over the years to go the different singer route with little success. After thinking about this some more I really don’t begrudge them finding someone to keep the sound and vibe of the band intact. Scott let them all down. That’s not their fault and I don’t think they should have to pay for his mistakes.

I can appreciate that. But on the flip side they also weren't able to make things work without him so I would wager he's a very key ingredient.

The thing they did with Robert Patrick was actually on the verge of doing something when they were like, "Oh shit, Scott's back!" and dumped ol' Rob faster than Dave Coutts.

I was listening to Tiny Music last night and it's still my favorite of their albums. I remember being a DJ in college when it came out and playing some tracks off of it. We got so many calls to stop playing it, that it wasn't good...it was hilarious. And yet they liked the obscure Green Day songs about S&M. Who knows.

At this point, I think the Deleo Brothers just want someone who is dependable and who is invested in making the band work as a full time thing again. The new CD is better than I anticipated (which I should qualify with I wasn't expecting much of anything), and it does SOUND like STP. To be fair to Gutt, Duvall had 2-3 years touring with AIC before they wrote new music, and I think that helped him learn and find his place in the band. It also allowed the band time to sort of find a direction to go in as they got to know him. STP chose a different route...I'm more interested to see if they do a 2nd album with Gutt and see how he progresses as he becomes more comfortable in that spot.

I want them to tour a lot and keep recording music for sure. Its true, AIC had a lot of time with William before they started writing songs...and yes, its a first album and its not bad, it just merely ok.

Bought it because they played Glide at recent shows and he killed it. I think I saw Pruno on a setlist, too. Why didn’t STP ever play these?

Watched some live stuff with the new guy. The main thing I came a way with is how many good songs these guys have in their discography. They did Regeneration a song pretty far down the list of "hit" STP songs and wow what a cool song. I gave the new album a spin. I get why they picked Roll Me Under as the single cause its the only song that stands out in the set and even that song is pretty ordinary. As a touring band they should be good. The guy doesn't have any stage presence but he can hit the notes and that's probably all they need. As a recording band its probably a wrap. He can sound like Scott but he doesn't have any of the intangibles that made him special. To be fair not many do that's what made Scott who he was...I don't blame then for trying or sticking with the STP brand. It's theirs too and its probably the only way to get butts in the seats. I wish them luck.

The new setlist are impressive. Makes sense for them to play those songs if they want to keep a statement about this new lineup.

Listening to the new one.

Its cool, its pretty generic about what stp used to be. Nothing really grabs me, but its a cool release i guess.

Why don't these bands ever try something new?

They always seem to go the route of hiring impersonators for the departed members and becoming their own tribute acts.
