''Stone Temple Pilots'' are an American rock band from San Diego, California. Formed in 1986 by Scott Weiland (vocals) and Robert [=De=]Leo (bass), they were later joined by Robert's brother Dean [=De=]Leo (guitar) and Eric Kretz (drums). The band's line-up has remained the same throughout its active years, until February 2013 when Weiland was fired by the other members for unexplained reasons. Weiland claimed this was a joke to boost ticket sales; with the release of "Out of Time," featuring Music/LinkinPark vocalist Chester Bennington (and the EP ''High Rise'') this seems not to be the case.

In November 2015, Chester Bennington amicably parted ways with the band due to his commitments with Music/LinkinPark. However, hopes of a classic reunion were gone when nearly a month later when Scott Weiland [[AuthorExistenceFailure died at the age of 48]]. After months of silence, the band began an online campaign to find a new vocalist. In November 2017, former ''Series/TheXFactor'' contestant Jeff Gutt (formerly of Dry Cell) became STP's new lead singer.

* SuperGroup: With the firing of Weiland and hiring of Chester Bennington, they essentially became a supergroup of themselves and Music/LinkinPark.

Scott, meanwhile, would become the frontman for an honest-to-god one with Velvet Revolved, which consisted of him and two former Music/GunsNRoses members.

* SignatureSound: Oddly enough, the band does manage this. With the exception of the heavily grunge ''Core,'' all albums -- while generally having different sounds -- contain elements of psychedelic rock in them.

* HiddenTrack: "My Second Album," at the end of ''Purple,'' a lounge jazz number which name drops Music/JohnnyMathis. Unusually, it's not even performed by the band, but by Richard Peterson, a UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}} street musician.
