The Last Bohemians has gone to LA for a brand new series, supported by Audio-Technica, starting on 6 July and starring LA icon Angelyne, subversive fashion disruptor Michéle Lamy, punk-rock widow Linda Ramone, feminist surrealist Penny Slinger, punk performance artist Johanna Went, artists and sculptors Betye Saar, Alison Saar and Maddy Leeser, cult musician – and LA's first female barber – Lynn Castle and Bond girl Gloria Hendry. Heartbroken and feeling adrift during the pandemic, host and creator Kate Hutchinson decamped to Hollywood in search of the wildest women in the City of Angels to help her get her mojo back. From Sunset Strip sexpots to Downtown artists, she meets a diverse range of incredible women – and one artistic dynasty! – who have lived life on the edge and who, even in their seventies, eighties or even nineties, still refuse to play by the rules. Series four stars: Angelyne, the blonde bombshell who rose to fame in the 1980s when billboards of the then-unknown pin-up started mysteriously appearing around the city and about whom Peacock released a major biopic last month. Michéle Lamy: the subversive French fashion disruptor at the Chateau Marmont on style, inspiration, how she works with her husband Rick Owens and her one-time notorious LA nightspot, Les Deux Cafe. Gloria Hendry: the former Bond girl, blaxploitation-era star and Playboy Bunny talks about being 007's first black love interest, breaking taboos onscreen and paving the way for the Black Panther generation. Linda Ramone: the punk-rock widow shows us around her home, the Linda and Johnny Ramone Ranch, with its themed Elvis and Disney rooms, and discusses love triangles, legacies and the demise of rock'n'roll. Betye Saar, Alison Saar and Maddy Leeser: a joyous encounter with the 95-year-old African-American artist Betye Saar, her artist daughter Alison and grand-daughter Maddy, at home in Laurel Canyon. Lynn Castle: the 83-year-old musician and first lady barber of Los Angeles on cutting Jim Morrison and Neil Young's hair, being Phil Spector's high school sweetheart, her relationship with Elvis, and Nancy Sinatra stealing her style. Johanna Went: the most notorious performance artist on the 80s LA punk scene – and the Lady Gaga that never was – gets frank about the power of ageing. Penny Slinger: the forgotten feminist surrealist and British bohemian – who escaped England for California – explores the divine feminine, exorcisms, making counterculture films in the 1960s and how her work came to define Women's Lib. ABOUT THE LAST BOHEMIANS The Last Bohemians is the vivid, hallucinatory podcast-portrait series started in 2019 by journalist Kate Hutchinson and now in its fourth series. It won silver for Best New Podcast at the 2020 British Podcast Awards and was a finalist at the 2021 Audio Production Awards, stealing hearts with 86-year-old Molly Parkin's stories of self-pleasuring, LSD countess Amanda Feilding's trepanning tales and Pamela Des Barres' reflections on supergroupiedom.

Episode 22 nearly didn't happen, it became episode 23 for some reason.  It looks like the time travel theme that signals the start of every show moved me ahead a week. Fortunately, I was able to change all the S5E23s to the correct S5E22 before everything got uploaded and created an irreversible hole in time.  The show kicked off with The Doors and  'L.A. Woman' and it was like cool running water, Jim Morrison giving us a glimpse once again of what could have been if he was still around today.  From a chilled laid back nearly 8 minute intro, we smashed a little Volbeat action and moved through Phil X and The Drills, Skid Row, and something off the new Ghost album Impera.  We made a bit of a fuss about Johnny Depp and celebrated his vindication by the courts this week by playing his band Hollywood Vampires and a track called 'Who's Laughing Now'.  We washed that down with some Jeff Beck jamming with ZZ Top on 'Rough Boy'.  We had Classic Rock came from Black Sabbath, ACDC, and Led Zeppelin, prog type stuff from Threshold and Coheed & Cambria, and Metal from Sepultura, Death Angel, and Opeth.The SA music was well represented by The Devil's Party Band, The Diamond Dogs, and Hellcats.  Tom Petty and John Mellencamp mellowed the show out a bit, I tried to revive it with some UK Punk, courtesy of The Stranglers and Stiff Little Fingers but ultimately the show moved back to a chilled ending with a fantastic love song about a guitar off the brand new Def Leppard album Diamond Star Halos.  Anyone who has played a guitar their whole life will fully understand the sentiment and the mini solos.  The show was dedicated to Athol's son Phoenix who turned 25 and celebrated by listening to The Story of Rock and Roll as one should.   Artists featured:  The Doors, Volbeat, Phil X and The Drills, Ghost, Skid Row, Bon Jovi, Coverdale / Page, Zakk Wylde, Tesla, Threshold, Coheed & Cambria, Mötley Crüe, Black Sabbath, ACDC, Dangerous Toys, Hollywood Vampires, ZZ Top, The Rolling Stones, Suicidal Tendencies, Doom Squad, Opeth, Sepultura, Death Angel, Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden, The Diamond Dogs, Hellcats, The Devil's Party Band, The Pretty Reckless, Lita Ford, L7, Seether, Tom Petty, John Mellencamp, The Stranglers, Stiff Little Fingers, Def Leppard, U2.

Antonio Veneziani"Santi subito"fve editorihttps://www.fveditori.it/Ognuno ha i suoi santi in paradiso, ma certi santi sono i più santi di tutti – sembra chiosare, occhieggiante, tra le pagine di questo libro Antonio Veneziani. Voce fresca e antichissima, saggia e bambina, caustica e tenerissima, l'autore scrive di uomini e di donne (intramontabili artisti, veri miti) che fino a ieri erano tra noi, raccontandoli come solo un innamorato devoto può fare. Santa Marilyn Monroe che “ha compiuto almeno mille miracoli”, San Jim Morrison “elettrico sciamano”, Sant'Amelia Rosselli “protettrice dei perseguitati dalla CIA”, San Jean Genet con “i piedi che corrono con le nuvole”. E poi Pasolini, Dario Bellezza, Pedro Lemebel, Lady Divine e tante e tanti altri… Agiografie, suppliche, preghiere: Veneziani santifica con aureole di cartone (ma tanto più luminose ed eterne) i suoi impareggiabili compagni di strada, maestri di libertà e di gioia ricordandoci, ritratto dopo ritratto, che ogni vita è più vasta della propria biografia, è imprendibile e canta, allegra e stonata, per i nostri cuori crepati.Antonio Veneziani è nato a Piacenza nel 1952. Scrittore, poeta e saggista, è uno dei massimi rappresentanti della scuola romana di poesia che va da Pasolini a Penna, da Bellezza a Rosselli. Tra le sue opere più importanti ricordiamo: Brown Sugar (Hacca, 2019), Cronista della solitudine (Hacca, 2007), Fototessere del delirio urbano (Hacca, 2009), Tatuaggio profondo (Elliot, 2014), Non basta una parrucca (Fandango, 2021).

 Lisa continues her conversation today with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and iconic drummer of The Doors, John Densmore. John reads poetry and explains about the thread which runs throughout each of our lives, if we just tune into it.  This is a way of never being lost. He talks about Ram Dass and how, in the silence, people can really contemplate his deeper words. He further discusses the importance of poetry, and specifically Jim Morrison's poetry, and then reads a special poem that he read to Ram Dass, written in the 1960s by renowned poet Etheridge Knight. He further describes the essence of creativity and the gifts that musicians and artists bring to us. In this uplifting interview, he talks about his latest book, “The Seekers – Meetings with Remarkable Musicians (and Other Artists).” Inspired by mystic G.I. Gurdjieff's classic work, “Meetings with Remarkable Men,” Densmore's latest book is a collection of short vignettes of his encounters with musicians such as Patti Smith, Lou Reed, and Janice Joplin, as well as spiritual teachers like Ram Dass, the Dalai Lama, and Joseph Campbell.

Broken Records - The Search for the Worst Album Ever

Welcome back to another edition of Broken Records, where Steve and Remfry are charged with the unenviable task of finding the worst album ever made. This week we're looking at Other Voices, the 7th studio album from the LA psychedelic rock band The Doors, released on the 18th of October 1971. In the aftermath of the release of arguably their finest album, 1971's LA Woman, The Doors were rocked with the untimely passing of their iconic frontman Jim Morrison. They had already been writing as a three piece without the singer and had composed enough material to make a follow up, assuming that Morrison would return from his new home in Paris to complete the material but unfortunately, he passed away July 3rd 1971 before he was able to record any vocals. With this news rocking the band they became somewhat punch drunk, stumbling around trying to recruit the likes of Paul McCartney and Iggy Pop, before deciding that Jim Morrison, one of the greatest rock singers ever, didn't need replacing and that both guitarist Robbie Krieger and keyboardist Ray Manzarek could handle vocal duties themselves. The result was Other Voices, released a mere three months after Morrison's passing, it stripped The Doors, not just of an iconic voice, but of almost all personality they previously had. In terms of bad ideas, this is right up there, luckily they saw sense and disbanded in 1973, but the appearance of Other Voices in their discography remains a troubling reminder of a very troubling time for the band.

Born in Lubbock, Texas, on September 7, 1936, Charles Hardin  Holley (he later dropped the "e"), after both grandfathers    the fourth child of Lawrence Odell "L.O." Holley and Ella Pauline Drake.    older siblings were Larry, Travis, and Patricia Lou.    nicknamed Buddy from a young age, and it stuck with him throughout his life.    Oddly enough, the newspaper announcement claimed that Buddy was actually a little girl. “A daughter weighing 8.5 lbs”, the Lubbock evening journal wrote. He was also only 6.5 pounds. And a boy. Buddy's family was mainly of English and Welsh descent and had some native American ancestry. During the Great Depression, the Holleys frequently moved residences within Lubbock; 17 in all.    His father changed jobs several times.    The Holley family were a musical household.  Except for Buddy's father, all family members could play an instrument or sing. His older brothers frequently entered local talent shows, and one time, his brothers signed up and Buddy wanted to play violin with them. However, Buddy couldn't play the violin.  Not wanting to break little Buddy's heart, his older brothers greased up the strings so it wouldn't make a sound. Buddy started singing his heart out and the three ended up winning the contest!  When WWII started, the U.S. government called his brothers into service. His brother Larry brought back a guitar he bought from a shipmate, and that guitar set Buddy's off. At 11 years old, Buddy started taking piano lessons.  Nine months later, he quit piano lessons and switched to guitar after seeing a classmate playing and singing on the school bus.    His parents initially bought him a steel guitar, but Buddy insisted he wanted a guitar like his brothers. They bought him a guitar, a gold top Gibson acoustic, from a pawn shop, and his brother Travis taught him to play it.  By 15, Buddy was proficient on guitar, banjo, and mandolin. During his early childhood, Holley was influenced by Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Snow, Bob Wills, and the Carter Family.  He started writing songs and working with his childhood friend Bob Montgomery. The two jammed together, practicing songs by the Louvin Brothers and Johnnie & Jack. They frequently listened to Grand Ole Opry's radio programs on WSM, Louisiana Hayride on KWKH (which they once drove 600 miles to okay just to be turned away), and Big D Jamboree.  If you're not familiar with the Grand Ol Opry, it's a weekly American country music stage concert in Nashville, Tennessee, founded on November 28, 1925, by George D. Hay as a one-hour radio "barn dance" on Clearchannel's WSM, which first hit the airwaves on October 5, 1925. Its the longest-running radio broadcast in U.S. history.    At the same time he was practicing with Bob, Holley played with other musicians he met in high school, including Sonny Curtis and Jerry Allison.    In 1952 Holley and Jack Neal participated as a duo billed as "Buddy and Jack" in a talent contest on a local television show.    After Neal left, he was replaced by his buddy Bob, and they were billed as "Buddy and Bob." By the mid-'50s, Buddy & Bob played their style of music called "western and bop ."    Holley was influenced by late-night radio stations that played the blues and rhythm and blues. Holley would sit in his car with Sonny Curtis and tune to distant “black” radio stations that could only be received at night when bigger stations turned off local transmissions.    Holley then changed his music by blending his earlier country and western influence with Rhythm and Blues. After seeing the legendary Elvis perform, Holly decided to pursue his career in music full-time once he graduated high school. By mid-1955, Buddy & Bob, who already worked with an upright bass player (played by Larry Welborn), added drummer Jerry Allison to their lineup. After seeing Elvis Presley performing live in Lubbock, who Pappy Dave Stone of KDAV booked, Buddy really wanted to get after it. In February, he opened for Elvis at the Fair Park Coliseum, in April at the Cotton Club, then again in June at the Coliseum. Elvis significantly influenced the group to turn more towards Rock n Roll. Buddy and the king became friends, with Buddy even driving Elvis around when he was in town. Eventually, Bob Montgomery, who leaned toward a traditional country sound, left the group, though they continued writing and composing songs together. Holly kept pushing his music toward a straight-ahead rock & roll sound, working with Allison, Welborn, and other local musicians, including his pal and guitarist Sonny Curtis and bassist Don Guess. In October, Holly was booked as the opener for Bill Haley & His Comets (Rock Around the Clock), to be seen by Nashville scout Eddie Crandall. Obviously impressed, Eddie Crandall talked Grand Ole Opry manager Jim Denny into finding a recording contract for Holley. Pappy Stone sent Denny a demo tape, which Denny forwarded to Paul Cohen. Cohen signed the band to Decca Records in February 1956.    In the contract, Decca accidentally misspelled Holley's surname as "Holly," From that point forward, he was known as "Buddy Holly." On January 26, 1956, Holly went to his first professional recording session with producer Owen Bradley. He was a part of two more sessions in Nashville.    the producer selected the session musicians and arrangements, Holly became frustrated by his lack of creative control. In April 1956, Decca released "Blue Days, Black Nights" as a single and "Love Me" on the B-side.    "B-sides" were secondary songs that were sent out with single records. They were usually just added to have something on the flip side. Later they became songs that bands would either not release or wait to release.  Jim Denny added Holly on tour as the opening act for Faron Young. While on this tour, they were promoted as "Buddy Holly and the Two Tones." Decca then called them "Buddy Holly and the Three Tunes." The label released Holly's second single, "Modern Don Juan," along with "You Are My One Desire."    Unfortunately, neither one of these singles tickled anyone's fancy. On January 22, 1957, Decca informed Holly that they wouldn't re-sign him and insisted he could not record the same songs for anyone else for five years. The same shit happened to Universal and me. A couple of classics, like "Midnight Shift" and "Rock Around with Ollie Vee," did come out of those Decca sessions, but nothing issued at the time went anywhere. It looked as though Holly had missed his shot at stardom.  Holly was disappointed with his time with Decca. inspired by Buddy Knox's "Party Doll" and Jimmy Bowen's "I'm Stickin' with You" he decided to visit Norman Petty, who produced and promoted both of those successful records.    Buddy, Jerry Allison, bassist Joe B. Mauldin, and rhythm guitarist Niki Sullivan pulled together and headed to Petty's studio in Clovis, New Mexico. The group recorded a demo of the now-classic, "That'll Be the Day," which they had previously recorded in Nashville. Now rockin' that lead guitar, Holly finally achieved the sound he wanted. They got the song nailed down and recorded. Along with Petty's help, the group got it picked up by Murray Deutsch, a publishing associate of Petty's, and Murray got it to Bob Thiele, an executive at Coral Records. Thiele loved it. Ironically, Coral Records was a subsidiary of Decca, the company Holly had signed with before. On a side note, a subsidiary is a smaller label under the major label's umbrella. For instance, Universal signed my band to Republic, a subsidiary of Universal Music that dealt primarily with rock genres, like Godsmack. Norman Petty saw the potential in Buddy and became his manager. He sent the record to Brunswick Records in New York City. Thiele saw the record as a potential hit, but there were some significant hurdles to overcome before it could be released.  According to author Philip Norman, in his book Rave On, Thiele would only get the most reluctant support from his record company. Decca had lucked out in 1954 when they'd signed Bill Haley & His Comets and saw their "Rock Around the Clock" top the charts. Still, very few of those in charge at Decca had a natural feel or appreciation for Rock & Roll, let alone any idea of where it might be heading or whether the label could (or should) follow it down that road. Also, remember that although Buddy had been dropped by Decca the year before, the contract that Holly signed explicitly forbade him from re-recording anything he had recorded for them, released or not, for five years. However, Coral was a subsidiary of Decca, and Decca's Nashville office could hold up the release and possibly even haul Holly into court.  "That'll Be the Day" was issued in May of 1957 mainly as an indulgence to Thiele, to "humor" him. The record was put out on the Brunswick label, more of jazz and R&B label, and credited to the Crickets. The group chose this name to prevent the suits at Decca -- and more importantly, Decca's Nashville office -- from finding out that this new release was from the guy they had just dropped. The name “The Crickets” was inspired by a band that Buddy and his group followed, called “the Spiders” and they initially thought about calling themselves “The Beetles”, with two E's, but Buddy said he was afraid people would want to “squash them.” So, they picked “The Crickets.” Petty also became the group's manager and producer, signing the Crickets, identified as Allison, Sullivan, and Mauldin, to a contract. Unfortunately, Holly wasn't listed as a member in the original document to keep his involvement with "That'll Be the Day" a secret. This ruse would later become the source of severe legal and financial problems for Buddy.    The song shot to #1 on the national charts that summer. But, of course, Decca knew Holly was in the band by then. So, with Thiele's persuasion and realizing they had a hit on their hands, the company agreed to release Holly from the five-year restriction on his old contract. This release left him free to sign any recording contract he wanted. While sorting out the ins and outs of Holly's legal situation, Thiele knew that Buddy was far more than a one-hit-wonder and that he could potentially write more and different types of hits. So, Holly found himself with two recording contracts, one with Brunswick as a member of the Crickets and the other with Coral Records as Buddy Holly, all thanks to Thiele's ingenious strategy to get the most out of Buddy and his abilities. By releasing two separate bodies of work, the Crickets could keep rockin' while allowing its apparent leader and "star" to break out on his own.    Petty, whose name seems fitting as we go through this, acted as their manager and producer. He handed out writing credits at random, gifting Niki Sullivan and Joe B. Mauldin (and himself) the co-authorship of the song, "I'm Gonna Love You Too," while leaving Holly's name off of "Peggy Sue." at first. The song title, “Peggy Sue” was named after Buddy's biggest fan. Petty usually added his own name to the credit line, something the managers and producers who wanted a more significant piece of the pie did back in the '50s. To be somewhat fair, Petty made some suggestions, which were vital in shaping certain Holly songs. However, he didn't contribute as much as all of his credits allow us to believe. Some confusion over songwriting was exacerbated by problems stemming from Holly's contracts in 1956. Petty had his own publishing company, Nor Va Jak Music, and Buddy signed a contract to publish his new songs. However, Holly had signed an exclusive agreement with another company the year before. To reduce his profile as a songwriter until a settlement could be made with Petty and convince the other publisher that they weren't losing too much in any compensation, buddy copyrighted many of his new songs under the pseudonym "Charles Hardin." So many names!   The dual recording contracts allowed Holly to record a crazy amount of songs during his short-lived 18 months of fame. Meanwhile, his band -- billed as Buddy Holly & the Crickets -- became one of the top attractions of the time. Holly was the frontman, singing lead and playing lead guitar, which was unusual for the era, and writing or co-writing many of their songs. But the Crickets were also a great band, creating a big and exciting sound (which is lost to history, aside from some live recordings from their 1958 British tour). Allison was a drummer ahead of his time and contributed to the songwriting more often than his colleagues, and Joe B. Mauldin and Niki Sullivan provided a solid rhythm section.   The group relied on originals for their singles, making them unique and years ahead of their time. In 1957-1958, songwriting wasn't considered a skill essential to a career in rock & Roll; the music business was still limping along the lines it had followed since the '20s. Songwriting was a specialized profession set on the publishing side of the industry and not connected to performing and recording. A performer might write a song or, even more rarely, like Duke Ellington (It Don't Mean A Thing), count composition among his key talents; however, this was generally left to the experts. Any rock & roller wanting to write songs would also have to get past the image of Elvis. He was set to become a millionaire at the young age of 22. He never wrote his songs, and the few songwriting credits he had resulted from business arrangements rather than writing anything.   Buddy Holly & the Crickets changed that seriously by hitting number one with a song they'd written and then reaching the Top Ten with originals like "Oh, Boy" and "Peggy Sue," They were regularly charging up the charts based on their songwriting. This ability wasn't appreciated by the public at the time and wouldn't be noticed widely until the '70s. Still, thousands of aspiring musicians, including John Lennon and Paul McCartney, from some unknown band called "The Beatles," took note of their success, and some of them decided to try and tried to be like Buddy. Also unknown at the time, Holly and his crew changed the primary industry method of recording, which was to bring the artist into the label's studio, working on their timetable. If an artist were highly successful, they got a blank check in the studio, and any union rules were thrown out, but that was rare and only happened to the highest bar of musicians. Buddy Holly & the Crickets, however, did their thing, starting with "That'll Be the Day," in Clovis, New Mexico, at Petty's studio. They took their time and experimented until they got the sound they were looking for. No union told them when to stop or start their work, and they delivered terrific records; not to mention, they were albums that sounded different than anything out there. The results changed the history of rock music. The group worked out a new sound that gave shape to the next wave of rock & Roll. Most definitely influenced was British rock & Roll and the British Invasion beat, with the lead and rhythm guitars working together to create a fuller, more complex sound. On songs such as "Not Fade Away," "Everyday," "Listen to Me," "Oh Boy!," "Peggy Sue," "Maybe Baby," "Rave On," "Heartbeat," and "It's So Easy," Holly took rock & roll's range and sophistication and pushed it without abandoning its excitement and, most importantly, it's fun. Holly and the band weren't afraid to push the envelope and try new things, even on their singles. "Peggy Sue" used changes in volume and timbre on the guitar that was usually only used in instrumental albums. "Words of Love" was one of the earliest examples of double-tracked vocals in rock & Roll, and the Beatles would jump on that train the following decade. Buddy Holly & the Crickets were extremely popular in America. Still, in England, they were even more significant; their impact was compared to Elvis and, in some ways, was even bigger. This success was because they toured England; Elvis didn't. They spent a month there in 1958, playing a list of shows that were still talked about 30 years later. It also had to do with their sound and Holly's persona on stage. The group's heavy use of rhythm guitar fit right in with the sound of skiffle music, a mix of blues, folk, country, and jazz elements that most of the younger British were introduced to playing music and their first taste of rock & Roll. Also, Holly looked a lot less likely a rock & roll star than Elvis. He was tall, skinny, and wore glasses; he looked like an ordinary dude who was good at music. Part of Buddy's appeal as a rock star was how he didn't look like one. He inspired tens of thousands of British teenagers who couldn't compare themselves to Elvis or Gene Vincent. (Be Bop A Lula) In the '50s, British guitarist Hank Marvin of the Shadows owed his look and that he wore his glasses proudly on-stage to Holly, and it was brought into the '70s by Elvis Costello.  Buddy may have played several different kinds of guitars but, he was specifically responsible for popularizing the Fender Stratocaster, especially in England. For many wannabe rock & rollers in the UK, Holly's 1958 tour was the first chance they'd had to see or hear this iconic guitar in action, and it quickly became the guitar of choice for anyone wanting to be a guitarist in England. In fact, Marvin is said to have had the first Stratocaster ever brought into England.   The Crickets became a trio with Sullivan dipping out in late 1957, right after the group's appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, but a lot more would transpire over the next year or so. The group consolidated its success with the release of two L.P.s, The Chirping Crickets, and Buddy Holly. They had two successful international tours and performed more in the United States. Holly had also started to have different ideas and aspirations than Allison and Mauldin. They never thought of leaving Texas as their home, and they continued to base their lives there, while Buddy wanted to be in New York, not just to do business but to live. His marriage to Maria Elena Santiago, a receptionist in Murray Deutsch's office, made the decision to move to New York that much easier. By this time, Holly's music had become more sophisticated and complex, and he passed off the lead guitar duties in the studio to session player Tommy Alsup. He had done several recordings in New York using session musicians such as King Curtis. It was around this time that the band started to see a slight decline in sales. Singles such as "Heartbeat" didn't sell nearly as well as the 45s of 1957 that had rolled out of stores. It's said that Buddy might even have advanced further than most of the band's audience was willing to accept in late 1958. Critics believe that the song "Well...All Right" was years ahead of its time.   Buddy split with the group -- and Petty -- in 1958. This departure left him free to chase some of those newer sounds, which also left him low on funds. In the course of the split, it became clear to Holly and everyone else that Petty had been fudging the numbers and probably taken a lot of the group's income for himself. Unfortunately, there was almost no way of proving his theft because he never seemed to finish his "accounting" of the money owed to anyone. His books were ultimately found to be so screwed up that when he came up with various low five-figure settlements to the folks he robbed, they took it.   Holly vacationed with his wife in Lubbock, TX, and hung out in Waylin Jennings's radio station in December 1958. With no money coming in from Petty, Holly decided to earn some quick cash by signing to play the Midwest's Winter Dance Party package tour. For the start of the Winter Dance Party tour, he assembled a band consisting of Waylon Jennings (on bass), Tommy Allsup (on guitar), and Carl Bunch (on drums). Holly and Jennings left for New York City, arriving on January 15, 1959. Jennings stayed at Holly's apartment by Washington Square Park on the days before a meeting scheduled at the headquarters of the General Artists Corporation, the folks who organized the tour. They then traveled by train to Chicago to meet up with the rest of the band. The Winter Dance Party tour began in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on January 23, 1959. The amount of travel involved created problems because whoever booked the tour dates didn't consider the distance between venues. On top of the scheduling conflicts, the unheated tour buses broke down twice in the freezing weather. In addition, Holly's drummer Carl Bunch was hospitalized for frostbite to his toes while aboard the bus, so Buddy looked for different transportation.  Buddy actually sat in on drums for the local bands while Richie Valenz played drums for Buddy.    On February 2, before their appearance in Clear Lake, Iowa, Holly chartered a four-seat Beechcraft Bonanza airplane for Jennings, Allsup, and himself, from Dwyer Flying Service in Mason City, Iowa, for $108.  Holly wanted to leave after the performance at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake and fly to their next venue, in Moorhead, Minnesota, through Fargo, North Dakota. This plan would allow them time to rest, wash their clothes and avoid being on that crappy bus. The Clear Lake Show ended just before midnight, and Allsup agreed to flip a coin for the seat with Richie Valens. Valens called heads, and when he won, he reportedly said, "That's the first time I've ever won anything in my life" On a side note, Allsup later opened a restaurant in Fort Worth, Texas called Heads Up, in memory of this statement. Waylon Jennings voluntarily gave up his seat to J. P. Richardson (the Big Bopper), who had the flu and complained that the tour bus was too cold and uncomfortable for a man of his stature. When Buddy heard Waylon wouldn't be flying with him, he jokingly said, “I hope your old bus freezes up!” Then Waylon responded, “well, I hope your old plane crashes!” The last thing he would ever say to his friend. Roger Peterson, the pilot and only 21, took off in pretty nasty weather, although he wasn't certified to fly by instruments alone, failing an instrument test the year before. He was a big fan of Buddy's and didn't want to disappoint, so he called a more seasoned pilot to fly the trio to their destination. “I'm more of a Lawrence Welk fan.”  Sadly, shortly after 12:55 am on February 3, 1959, Holly, Valens, Richardson, and Peterson were killed instantly when the plane crashed into a frozen cornfield five miles northwest of Mason City, Iowa, airport shortly after takeoff. Buddy was in the front, next to the pilot. He loved flying and had been taking flying lessons. The three musicians were ejected from the plane upon impact, suffering severe head and chest injuries. Holly was 22 years old.   Holly's funeral was held on February 7, 1959, at the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Lubbock, TX. It was officiated by Ben D. Johnson, who married the Hollys' just months earlier. Jerry Allison, Joe B. Mauldin, Niki Sullivan, Bob Montgomery, and Sonny Curtis were pallbearers. Some sources say that Phil Everly, the one half of The Everly Brothers, was also the pallbearer, but he said at one time that he attended the funeral but was not a pallbearer. In addition, Waylon Jennings was unable to participate because of his commitment to the still-touring Winter Dance Party. Holly's body was buried in the City of Lubbock Cemetery, in the city's eastern part. His headstone has the correct spelling of his last name (Holley) and a carving of his Fender Stratocaster guitar. His wife, María Elena, had to see the first reports of her husband's death on T.V. She claimed she suffered a miscarriage the following day. Holly's mother, who heard the news on the radio in Lubbock, Texas, screamed and collapsed. Because of Elena's miscarriage, the authorities implemented a policy against announcing victims' names until the families were informed. As a result, Mary did not attend the funeral and has never visited the gravesite. She later told the Avalanche-Journal, "In a way, I blame myself. I was not feeling well when he left. I was two weeks pregnant, and I wanted Buddy to stay with me, but he had scheduled that tour. It was the only time I wasn't with him. And I blame myself because I know that, if only I had gone along, Buddy never would have gotten into that airplane."    The accident wasn't considered a significant piece of news at the time, although sad. Most news outlets were run by out-of-touch older men and didn't think rock & Roll was anything more than to be exploited to sell newspapers or grab viewing audiences. However, Holly was clean-cut and scandal-free, and with the news of his recent marriage, the story contained more misery than other music stars of the period. For the teens of the time, it was their first glimpse of a public tragedy like this, and the news was heartbreaking. Radio station D.J.s were also traumatized. The accident and sudden way it happened, along with Holly and Valens being just 22 and 17, made it even worse. Hank Williams Sr had died at 29, but he was a drug user and heavy drinker, causing some to believe his young death was inevitable. The blues guitarist Johnny Ace had passed in 1954 while backstage at a show. However, that tragedy came at his hand in a game of Russian roulette. Holly's death was different, almost more personal to the public.     Buddy left behind dozens of unfinished recordings — solo transcriptions of his new compositions, informal jam sessions with bandmates, and tapes with songs intended for other musicians. Buddy recorded his last six original songs in his apartment in late 1958 and were his most recent recordings. In June 1959, Coral Records overdubbed two of the songs with backing vocals by the Ray Charles Singers and hired guns to emulate the Crickets sound. Since his death, the finished tracks became the first singles, "Peggy Sue Got Married"/"Crying, Waiting, Hoping." The new release was a success, and the fans and industry wanted more. As a result, all six songs were included in The Buddy Holly Story, Vol. 2 in 1960 using the other Holly demos and the same studio personnel. The demand for Holly records was so great, and Holly had recorded so many tracks that his record label could release new Holly albums and singles for the next ten years. Norman Petty, the alleged swindler, produced most of these new songs, using unreleased studio masters, alternative takes, audition tapes, and even amateur recordings (a few from 1954 with recorded with low-quality vocals). The final Buddy Holly album, "Giant," was released in 1969 with the single, "Love Is Strange," taking the lead.   These posthumous records did well in the U.S. but actually charted in England. New recordings of his music, like the Rolling Stones' rendition of "Not Fade Away" and the Beatles' rendition of "Words of Love," kept Buddy's name and music in the hearts and ears of a new generation of listeners. In the States, the struggle was a little more challenging. The rock & roll wave was constantly morphing, with new sounds, bands, and listeners continuously emerging, and the general public gradually forgot about Buddy and his short-lived legacy. Holly was a largely forgotten figure in his own country by the end of the '60s, except among older fans (then in their twenties) and hardcore oldies listeners. Things began to shift toward the end of the '60s with the start of the oldies boom. Holly's music was, of course, a part of this movement. But, as people listened, they also learned about the man behind the music. Even the highly respected rock zine Rolling Stone went out of its way to remind people who Buddy was. His posing images from 1957 and 1958, wearing his glasses, a jacket, and smiling, looked like a figure from another age. The way he died also set him apart from some of the deaths of rockers like Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison, musicians who, at the time, overindulged in the rock in roll lifestyle. Holly was different. He was eternally innocent in all aspects of his life. Don McLean, a relatively unknown singer/songwriter, who proudly considered himself a Buddy Holly fan, wrote and released a song called "American Pie," in 1971, catapulting him into the musical ethos. Although listeners assumed McLean wrote the song about President Kennedy, he let it be known publicly that he meant February 3, 1959, the day Holly died. Maclean was a holly fan and his death devastated him when he was only 11. The song's popularity led to Holly suddenly getting more press exposure than he'd ever had the chance to enjoy in his lifetime.     The tragic plane accident launched a few careers in the years after. Bobby Vee became a star when his band took over Holly's spot on the Winter Dance Party tour.  Holly's final single, "It Doesn't Matter Anymore," hit the British charts in the wake of his death and rose to number one. Two years after the event, producer Joe Meek and singer Mike Berry got together to make "Tribute to Buddy Holly," a memorial single. But, unfortunately, rumor has it that Meek never entirely got over Holly's death, and he killed himself on the anniversary of the plane accident.   The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame included Holly among its first class in 1986. Upon his induction, the Hall of Fame basked about the large quantity of material he produced during his short musical career. Saying, "He made a major and lasting impact on popular music ." Calling him an "innovator" for writing his own material, experimenting with double-tracking, and using orchestration. He was also revered for having "pioneered and popularized" the use of two guitars, bass, and drums by rock bands. He was also inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1986, saying his contributions "changed the face of Rock' n' Roll." Along with Petty, Holly developed techniques like overdubbing and reverb and other innovative instrumentation. As a result, according to the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Holly became "one of the most influential pioneers of rock and roll" who had a "lasting influence" on genre performers of the 1960s.   Paul McCartney bought the rights to Buddy Holly's entire song catalog on July 1, 1976.   Lubbock TX's Walk of Fame has a statue honoring Buddy of him rocking his Fender, which Grant Speed sculpted in 1980. There are other memorials to Buddy Holly, including a street named in his honor and the Buddy Holly Center, which contains a museum of memorabilia and fine arts gallery. The Center is located on Crickets Avenue, one street east of Buddy Holly Avenue.  There was a musical about Buddy. Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story, a “pioneering jukebox musical which worked his familiar hits into a narrative,” debuted in the West End in 1989. It ran until 2008, where it also appeared on Broadway, as well as in Australia and Germany, not to mention touring companies in the U.K. and U.S.   In 1994 "Buddy Holly" became a massive hit from the band Weezer, paying homage to the fallen rocker and is still played on the radio and whenever MTV decides to play videos on one of their side stations. Again, in ‘94, Holly's style also showed up in Quentin Tarantino's abstract and groundbreaking film Pulp Fiction, which featured Steve Buscemi playing a waiter impersonating Buddy.   In 1997, Buddy received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. He was inducted into the Iowa Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame in 2000, as well. In 2010, Grant Speed's statue of Buddy and his guitar was taken down for repairs, and construction of a new Walk of Fame began. On May 9, 2011, the City of Lubbock held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Buddy and Maria Elena Holly Plaza, the new home of the statue and the Walk of Fame. The same year, on why would be Buddy's 75th birthday, a star with his name was placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.   There were two tribute albums released in 2011: Verve Forecast's Listen to Me: Buddy Holly,  featuring Stevie Nicks, Brian Wilson, and Ringo Starr plus 13 other artists, and Fantasy/Concord's Rave on Buddy Holly, which had tracks from Paul McCartney, Patti Smith, the Black Keys, and Nick Lowe, among others.  Pat DiNizio of the Smithereens released his own Holly tribute album in 2009. Universal released True Love Ways, an album where original Holly recordings were overdubbed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in 2018, just in time for Christmas. That album debuted at number 10 on the U.K. charts. Groundbreaking was held on April 20, 2017, to construct a new performing arts center in Lubbock, TX, dubbed the Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences, a $153 million project in downtown Lubbock completed in 2020 located at 1300 Mac Davis Lane.   Recently, on May 5, 2019, an article on gearnews.com had a pretty cool story, if it's true.   The famous Fender Stratocaster played and owned by Buddy Holly that disappeared after his death in 1959 has been found, according to a new video documentary called "The '54".   Gill Matthews is an Australian drummer, producer, and collector of old Fender guitars. According to the documentary, he may have stumbled upon Buddy Holly's legendary guitar. The film is The '54 and tells the history of one particular 1954 Fender Stratocaster Gil purchased two decades after the plane crash that claimed Buddy's life. Experts cited in the film say there is a good chance that the guitar in Matthews' possession is indeed Buddy Holly's actual original '54 Fender Stratocaster. If this is true, it is possibly one of the most significant finds in guitar history. You can watch the video at gearnews.com and see all the evidence presented during the film.     Sources: A biography on allmusic.com written by Bruce Eder was the main source of information here with other info coming from the following Rave on: The Biography of Buddy Holly written by Phillip Norman   Buddy Holly : Rest In Peace by Don Mclean "Why Buddy Holly will never fade away" an article on The Telegraph website written by Phillip Norman   Various other articles were used and tidbits taken from wikipedia.   And Adam Moody   Consider becoming a producer of the show. www.accidentaldads.com www.iconsandoutlaws.com

Stone Temple Pilots.    There are two conflicting stories of how frontman Scott Weiland and bassist Robert DeLeo actually met; one was that Weiland and DeLeo met at a punk rock icon Black Flag concert in Long Beach, California, in 1985.  They started chit-chatting, discussing their girlfriends, only to realize they were dating the same woman. However, instead of having some beef and fighting over her, they became friends and formed a band after breaking it off with the girl. On the other hand, Weiland had a different version of meeting Deleo, written in his autobiography. The way he tells it, he and his current band Soi Disant, guitarist Corey Hicock, and drummer David Allin pursued DeLeo after watching him play live at different gigs.   Initially calling themselves "Swing," Allin left to pursue other interests after a few years. The remaining members watched drummer Eric Kretz play in a Long Beach club and convinced him to join the band. Guitarist Hicock eventually left the band in 1989; in need of a replacement and auditioning many guitarists, Robert suggested his older brother, Dean DeLeo. He and his brother were born in Montclaire, New Jersey). At the time, Dean was a successful businessman who did what many musicians do and had decided to leave music behind to find a "real job." The band convinced Dean to play for Swing, completing the original STP lineup. Dean hated the name and refused to continue playing in a band called "Swing," changing the name to "Mighty Joe Young," which was a B Movie from the 1940s. They recorded a demo tape around 1990. That demo would have tracks that would go on to be re-recorded for the band's first studio album, "Core," as well as some different styles that wouldn't show up again, like some funk and yodeling. Yes, Yodeling. Mighty Joe Young played a few gigs in the San Diego area, gradually building a fanbase. Their first show supported Henry Rollins (Formerly of that band Black Flag we mentioned earlier) at the world-famous Whisky a Go-Go in Los Angeles, CA. The group then began working on their debut album with first-time producer and mixer Brendan O'Brien, the guy who's worked with future Icons and Outlaws subjects, AC/DC, Pearl Jam, Bob Dylan, Rage Against the Machine, and Bruce Springsteen. Definitely a big deal. One day while recording, they received a call from their lawyer. He informed them that a blues player out of Chicago had already claimed the name Mighty Joe Young and they obviously didn't want to get sued for trademark infringement. So, rumor has it that they were inspired by the STP Motor Oil stickers they loved as kids. Various ideas on the initials "STP" were bounced back and forth, like "Shirley Temple's Pussy" and "Stereo Temple Pirates" before they settled on the name "Stone Temple Pilots."   STP built up their fan base in the San Diego clubs and in 1992 signed a deal with Atlantic Records, who had just released White Lion's "Main Attraction," Rush's "Roll The Bones," and Genesis' "We Can't Dance" the previous year. STP's first album, Core, was released on September 29, 1992, and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Albums Chart. Core was a big success, producing hits "Sex Type Thing," "Plush," (which was rumored to have been written while Eric and Scott were in a Jacuzzi) "Creep," and "Wicked Garden." The debut album was a major commercial success; however, some press called the band "grunge imitators." The name of the album, "Core," refers to the apple in the biblical tale of Adam and Eve. It was recorded in only five weeks! Weiland has said that the album's central theme is that humanity is confused, with songs like "Sex Type Thing" (which is an anti date rape song and written after a woman that Weiland was deeply in love with was raped by 3 football players after a drunken high school party). Whereas "Naked Sunday" dealt with social injustice. "Sex Type Thing," according to Weiland, deals with abuse of power, "macho" behavior, and humanity's attitude toward women, treating them as sex objects. Also, "Naked Sunday" "is about organized religion. "About people who tell others what to do and what to believe. They switch off people's minds and control the masses." He goes on to say, "It gives me a feeling of isolation when I think about it. Organized religion does not view everyone as equals." Weiland says about his lyrics on "Core": "I feel very strongly that all individuals, regardless of age, race, creed, or sexual preference, should have the freedom to exercise their rights as human beings to enjoy life, pursue what they want, and feel comfortable about who they are. I guess I tend to find the darker sides of life more attractive than the yellows and oranges. I know it's something that I relate to when I listen to music."   According to Weiland, "Wicked Garden" 's lyrics deal with the loss of innocence and purity, while "Sin" addresses "violent and ugly" relationships.    Also, the instrumental song "No Memory," the interlude between "Wicked Garden" and "Sin," was written by guitarist Dean DeLeo.   Deleo said about "Core," "You know how when you listen to a Led Zeppelin album, you listen to the entire album, not just the odd song? We wanted to make a record like that. We wanted to create a vibe which would run right through the whole album."    "Core" contained many more bangers, including Dead and Bloated and Crackerman. Since its release, the album has gone eight times platinum, selling over 8 million copies!   Also, that same year, Scott Weiland and Dean DeLeo played an acoustic version of "Plush" on the show Headbangers Ball. If you're not familiar, Headbanger's Ball was a T.V. show consisting of heavy metal music videos airing on MTV and hosted by Riki Rachtman. Some have considered this one of Weiland's most outstanding vocal performances.   Despite some negative reviews from critics, STP continued to gain fans and toured, opening for bands like Rage Against the Machine and Megadeth. Then, 1993 saw the band kicking ass, headlining a two-and-a-half-month tour here in the states.   In 1993, the band filmed an episode of MTV Unplugged, where they debuted the song "Big Empty," which would go on to be on the soundtrack for the movie "The Crow." You can hear our version of this iconic song at the end of the episode.    In a poll in Rolling Stone from 1994, Rolling Stone's readers voted STP Best New Band and Worst New Band by the magazine's music critics. In addition, they took home the "Favorite Pop/Rock New Artist" and "Heavy Metal/Hard Rock New Artist" awards the following month at the American Music Awards. Finally, in March 1994, they won a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance for "Plush."    Later that same year, STP returned to the studio with Brenden O'Brien, once again producing, to work on their second album, Purple. Unfortunately, around this time, it was also revealed Weiland had become a heroin addict. On the last stop of an STP co-headlining tour with the Butthole Surfers in 1993, in a back room of New York City's Royalton Hotel, Weiland first tried heroin, and in the embrace of this sticky brown shit, his demons were finally at ease. While "Core" took just five weeks to complete, Purple would take less than a month to record. Which, if you're not familiar, is extremely quick. The album's first single was "Big Empty," which debuted at STP's MTV Unplugged acoustic performance in 1993 and reached number one on the Billboard charts. A couple of weeks later, "Purple" also reached the top of the charts, making two for the band in 1994. Although like "Core," "Purple" features grunge elements. However, this album also displays the bands developing sound influenced by other genres, apparent in the psychedelic rock found in "Lounge Fly" and "Silvergun Superman," the country vibes of "Interstate Love Song," and the blues-rock elements of "Big Empty."  AllMusic.com's Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote that "Purple is a quantum leap over [Core], showcasing a band hitting their stride." Erlewine also described "Interstate Love Song" as a "concise epic as alluring as the open highway" and "Big Empty" as "a perfect encapsulation of mainstream alienation.” The other two singles after "Big Empty," "Vaseline," and "Interstate Love Song" also hit the top ten on the Billboard Charts, giving them three top ten hits that year. The album also included other minor hits, including "Pretty Penny" and "Unglued." Purple has been certified 6x platinum, selling over 6 million copies. It sold three million copies just four months after its release. The cover of Purple shows a baby riding a dragon in the sky while some angelic figures look on. It is based on the artwork from a package of China White heroin that Weiland scored in Los Angeles. 1994 also saw Weiland marry Janina Castaneda, in which it is said that "Sour girl" and "Interstate Love Song" were written about. Heading into 1995, Weiland would slide into drug and legal problems. His heroin problems were getting worse. "When I tried heroin for the first time," Weiland recalled in 1998, "it seemed to make all those insecurities just go away. I suddenly felt: 'Wow, this is how normal people feel on a day-to-day basis.'" He was spending over $3,000 a week on smack within a year. Weiland found that heroin not only took away his anxiety but also fed into his carefully concocted "wasted rock star persona" and inspired a "bracing new experimentalism." He credited a lot of his creativity during the "Purple" recording sessions to his addiction to heroin. "Heroin gave me this ability to distance myself from the creative process and thereby gave me the strength and courage to try new things," he told Classic Rock.com. "Part of me felt I couldn't be creative unless I was high."   In October 1995, STP got together to begin recording their third album, "Tiny Music... Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop." They rented out a mansion in Santa Barbara, California, to live together during the recording process. Unfortunately, the production process of Tiny Music wasn't easy. In early 1995, shortly after the band was forced to scrap two weeks' worth of recorded material, Scott was arrested, just two days out of another rehab, for heroin and cocaine possession and sentenced to one year's probation. Obviously, it didn't take long for Weiland to lose that little control of the addiction he held during this time. After his wife Janina bailed him out, he literally jumped out of her car at a stoplight and disappeared for days while shooting dope with Courtney Love. Yes, that Courtney Love. Weiland formed his side band, the Magnificent Bastards, and recorded songs for the Tank Girl soundtrack and a John Lennon tribute album in the months following this incident.     They released "Tiny Music" on March 5, 1996 and spawned three singles that reached No. 1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart: "Big Bang Baby," "Lady Picture Show," and "Trippin' on a Hole in a Paper Heart."   The album's sound severely changed from their previous two albums, adding more glam rock and psychedelic styles and less of the hard rock/grunge sound that made them famous. Of course, reception by critics at the time was mixed. Rolling Stone, the magazine that initially dubbed them the "Worst New Band" in 1994, praised the record, calling it the group's best effort to date. However, they were surprised at "the clattering, upbeat character of the music," seeing that Weiland was all over the news with his drug use and arrests. STP was also featured on the cover of Rolling Stones issue No. 753 in February 1997. The band was only partially successful touring in support of Tiny Music... and was forced to pull out as support for Kiss' reunion tour. A small tour in the fall of 1996 commenced in the U.S. However, dates at the end of December and in 1997 had to be canceled for Weiland to enter rehab, claiming that their singer had "become unable to rehearse or appear for these shows due to his dependency on drugs."    At only 24, Weiland went from smoking heroin to injecting the stuff. He spoke about his first shot of heroin by saying. "It's like what they talk about in Buddhism, that feeling of reaching enlightenment," he told Esquire. "They say there's a golden glow that goes from your fingers all the way through every appendage and into the pit of your stomach. That's what it felt like to me. Like I'd reached enlightenment. Like a drop of water rejoining the ocean." The band then decided to take a break to work on other projects. "I can't call the kettle black," remarked Kiss drummer Peter Criss. "I just pray for the guy and hope that he gets himself better because they really are a great band."   Things were getting worse after all of the issues with recording and touring for Tiny Music. In 1998, the same year Weiland released his first solo album, 12 Bar Blues, police arrested Weiland for buying dope in a New York housing project. A drug-related probation violation landed him five months in jail. Later years would bring more arrests for drunk driving, battery, and possession.   During the initial recording of "Tiny Music," STP, without Weiland, recruited Dave Coutts, the singer of Ten Inch Men, and began performing under the name "Talk Show." Talk Show released one self-titled album in 1997 before calling it quits. Robert and Dean had gotten together to figure out which songs should be Tiny Music songs and Talk Show songs. Dean would later say, "Robert and I had about 30 songs, and we sat in the room one night and basically went down the list and marked next to every song: Scott, Scott, Dave, Scott, Dave, Dave, Scott... It's really weird, because in all reality, it was like 'Big Bang Baby' could've been on [the] Talk Show record, and 'Everybody Loves My Car' could've been on Tiny Music." Both albums, Weiland's "12 Bar Blues" and `Talk Shows "self-titled, seemed to please the critics, but neither was commercially successful.   Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins once said, "It was STP's 3rd album that had got me hooked, a wizardly mix of glam and post-punk, and I confessed to Scott, as well as the band many times, how wrong I'd been in assessing their native brilliance. And like Bowie can and does, it was Scott's phrasing that pushed his music into a unique, and hard to pin down, aesthetic sonicsphere. Lastly, I'd like to share a thought which though clumsy, I hope would please Scott In Hominum. And that is if you asked me who I truly believed were the great voices of our generation, I'd say it were he, Layne, and Kurt." In 2016, The A.V. Club noted that Tiny Music "was an almost shocking leap forward in creative ambition" and that "[STP] got weirder and better than anyone gives them credit for." Numbers-wise, the album has been certified twice platinum, selling over 2 million copies.    In late 1998, the band regrouped again and began work on a fourth STP album. 1999s "No. 4" was looked at as a "back-to-basics" rock album in similar to "Core" or "Purple." Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic wrote in a review, "it's as if STP decided to compete directly with the new generation of alt-metal bands who prize aggression over hooks or riffs.", comparing the album's sound to the current wave of alternative metal bands. This album found STP scoring one of its biggest hits since the "Core" and "Purple" with the single "Sour Girl," which stemmed from a music video starring "Buffy The Vampire" T.V. star, Sarah Michelle Gellar. STP then went on a summer tour with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and recorded an episode of VH1 Storytellers, supporting "No.4.", with the surviving members of The Doors. Weiland did vocals on two Doors songs, "Break On Through (To the Other Side)" and "Five to One." That same month Stone Temple Pilots appeared on the Doors tribute CD, Stoned Immaculate, with their own rendition of "Break on Through" as the lead track. Despite the lack of promotion due to singer Scott Weiland's one-year jail sentence shortly before the album's release, it would eventually be certified platinum in August 2000.    The cover art for No.4 generated some brief controversy because it strongly resembled the cover of the debut E.P. from Washington, D.C.-based band Power Lloyd. The Power Lloyd CD "Election Day" was released in 1998, and the cover was a white, five-point star on a black field under the band's name; STP's No.4 also featured a white five-point star on a black field under the band's name. Power Lloyd co-founder Gene Diotalevi explained that after their band had given a song to MTV to be used on the soundtrack of Celebrity Deathmatch, someone at MTV with an advance copy of No.4 noticed that the covers were nearly identical and alerted the band. However, Diotalevi stated that no one from STP's camp would return their calls or letters until his band mailed a cease-and-desist letter to STP's record company. STP's legal team then "made an offer to settle that was unacceptable to us," according to Power Lloyd's lawyer, Will Shill.   That same year, Weiland also recorded two songs with the short-lived supergroup the Wondergirls. The group also featured Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray, Ian Astbury of The Cult, Shannon Leto of Thirty Seconds to Mars, Jay Gordon and Ryan Shuck of Orgy and Julien-k, Doug Ardito of Puddle of Mudd, Ken Andrews of Failure, Martyn LeNoble of Porno for Pyros, and Troy Van Leeuwen of Queens of the Stone Age.   During the summer of 2001, the band released "Shangri-La Dee Da." Despite the album's promotion by going on tour with Linkin Park, Staind, and Static X on the Family Values Tour, Shangri-La Dee Da was a commercial disappointment. This album was the fifth and final album released by STP before splitting up in 2002. The album was initially conceived as a double album dedicated to the memory of Andrew Wood, the lead singer, and lyricist of Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone. The record company was not happy with the idea of a double album, and after a while, the band relented to the pressure and made it the single album that was released. During the recording of Shangri La Di Da, the band had a filmmaker record everything that transpired. The filmmaker said the documentary was made to be in the style of The Beatles "Let It Be." Supposedly, there was a coffee table book as a companion to the documentary. Unfortunately, neither the documentary nor the book was released. The biggest hit off of this album was "Days Of The Week," which reached number four on the mainstream rock charts. The album did not perform as well as the previous STP albums, selling just over 500,000 copies and certified gold.   At that point, marketing support from their label was nonexistent, and the band decided to hold on recording any future albums. Finally, however, the band recorded "All in the Suit That You Wear," a song intended to be the lead single on the soundtrack for the 2002 film Spider-Man. However, Chad Kroeger's song "Hero" was ultimately chosen as the lead single. This soundtrack also featured the song "She Was My Girl" by Alice In Chains guitarist and vocalist Jerry Cantrell and was written by Cantrell and my good friend, Jeff Tomei, who also recorded and produced the song.   Reports that the band had begun work on a sixth studio album in 2002 were put to rest as the band went quiet by the end of that year. An altercation between Dean DeLeo and Scott Weiland after the last show of Stone Temple Pilots' fall 2002 tour led to the final dissolving of the band. As an homage to the band's successful career, in 2003, Atlantic Records released a greatest hits album called "Thank You." The album had a bonus DVD of archive material and music videos. Five days after it's release, the DeLeo brothers revealed that the band was officially done in an interview with Guitar One. Following the band's dissolution, Weiland was recruited to join the successful supergroup Velvet Revolver with Guns N' Roses members Slash (guitar), Matt Sorum (drums), Duff McKagan(bass), and former Wasted Youth guitarist Dave Kushner. Weiland was friends with all four of these fellas, so when they were looking for a singer, they sent him two discs of material. He was not really into the first disc, saying it sounded like "Bad Company gone wrong." After that, the guys sent him the second disc, which Weiland liked more. Weiland declined the invite to sing at the time as STP was not broken up yet. After STP officially announced their breakup in 2003, the band sent Weiland new material, and Weiland added vocals to the track at his studio. This track eventually became the song Set Me Free. He delivered the recording to the band in person but still would not join the band. He recorded two songs with the guys, a version of Set Me Free and a cover of Money by Pink Floyd for The Hulk and The Italian Job movies, respectively. Shortly after, Weiland officially joined the band. Before a screening of The Hulk at Universal Studios, the band chose a name. Slash liked the beginning of the word Revolution after seeing a movie by Revolution Studios, eventually thinking of Revolver because of its multiple meanings. The name of a gun, the subtext of a revolving door, and the name of a Beatles album. When he suggested Revolver to the band, Weiland suggested 'Black Velvet' Revolver,' liking the idea of "something intimate like velvet juxtaposed with something deadly like a gun." They eventually arrived at Velvet Revolver. They announced the name at a press conference and performance showcase at the El Rey Theatre while also performing the songs "Set Me Free" and "Slither" as well as covers of Nirvana's "Negative Creep," Sex Pistols' "Bodies," and Guns N' Roses' "It's So Easy."   In 2004, the band released their debut album "Contraband." The album debuted at number one and has sold over 3 million copies worldwide. 2 million were sold in the U.S., making the album certified double platinum. The album's recording was hampered at times by Weiland having to appear in court for his drug charges and his subsequent sentence for rehab. Nevertheless, two of the album's songs, "Slither" and "Fall to Pieces," reached number one on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. The song "Slither" also won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance with Vocal in 2005, an award Weiland had won previously with STP for the song "Plush" in 1994. Velvet Revolver released their second album, Libertad, on July 3, 2007, peaking at number five on the Billboard 200. The delay in releasing their second album, according to Slash, was his fault. He had relapsed on drugs, and this caused issues with the process of getting the album out. The album's first single, "She Builds Quick Machines," peaked at 74 on the Hot Canadian Digital Singles. The second and third singles, "The Last Fight" and "Get Out the Door," peaked at numbers 16 and 34 on the Mainstream Rock Chart. Critical reception to the album was mixed. Though some critics praised the album and felt that Libertad gave the band identity of their own, others described the album as "bland" and noted that the band seemed to be "playing to their strengths instead of finding a collective sound. Later Slash would say about Weiland:                  "I just thought he was a great singer, and he'd always been on my mind for [Velvet Revolver]. He was the one vocalist that I knew had the kind of voice that would serve what we were going to do: he had a John Lennon-ish quality, a little bit of Jim Morrison, and a touch of almost David Bowie. He was the best singer to come out in a long time in my opinion."   Likewise, the DeLeo brothers formed the supergroup Army of Anyone with vocalist Richard Patrick of the rock band Filter and session drummer Ray Luzier. The band released its self-titled album in 2006 before going on "indefinite hiatus" in 2007. STP Drummer Eric Kretz kept a lower profile during this time, operating his own studio, Bomb Shelter Studios, and drumming for the band Spiralarms.   Dean DeLeo stated steps toward an STP reformation started with a phone call from Weiland's then-wife, Mary Forsberg. She invited the DeLeo brothers to play at a private beach party, which led to Weiland and the DeLeo brothers mending ways. In 2007, Dean DeLeo and Weiland discussed a concert promoter's offer to headline several summer festivals. Weiland accepted and said he had cleared the brief tour with his Velvet Revolver bandmates. He explained, "everything was cool. Then it wasn't," and said the rest of the band stopped talking to him. Weiland was diagnosed with manic-depressive disorder. He would often refuse to take medication for it and had lots of mood swings as a result. On March 20, 2008, Weiland revealed at Velvet Revolver's show in Glasgow that this would be the band's final tour. After several flares on their blogs and in interviews, on April 1, it was announced by several media outlets that Weiland would no longer be in Velvet Revolver. STP announced they were reuniting for a 65-date North American tour the following month. The group officially reunited for a private gig at the Houdini Mansion and held their first public performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on May 1. The reunion tour kicked off at the Rock on the Range festival on May 17, 2008. STP toured throughout the summer and fall, headlining the Virgin Mobile Festival in Baltimore in August of that year and the 10th annual Voodoo Experience in New Orleans. The band's six-month reunion tour wrapped up on Halloween 2008 in Pelham, Alabama. After taking a short break to allow Weiland to support his recently released second solo album, ""Happy" in Galoshes," pre-production for the band's sixth studio album began in mid-2009. The band also hit the road for a 13-date North American summer tour in 2009, in-between the tours for Weiland's "Happy in Galoshes.".The band showcased new material at South by Southwest, the annual get-together of film, interactive media, and music festivals and conferences organized jointly in mid-March in Austin, Texas, in 2010. The band performed at England's Download Festival in 2010, the Hurricane Festival and the Southside Festival in Germany, and the Final Four Concert Series in Indianapolis on April 2, 2010. In addition, the band appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman for the first time in ten years on May 19, performing "Between the Lines.'   It would also be the band's last album featuring Weiland on vocals. A lawsuit filed by Atlantic Records on June 12, 2008, actually left the sixth album up in the air. Atlantic eventually withdrew the case, and the band's attorney called the legal situation a "misunderstanding." Against Atlantic Records' wishes, Robert DeLeo insisted that he and his brother Dean DeLeo produce the record themselves, which began production in early 2009. Production took nearly ten months to complete because recording took place during breaks in the band's touring schedule. Three studios were used simultaneously, including Robert's home studio and Eric Kretz's Bomb Shelter Studios. Scott Weiland recorded vocals at his "Lavish Studios." Don Was came in as an additional producer to help keep the band's separate recording sessions in sync and work closely with Weiland during the recording of his vocals. The album was completed in December 2009, and mixing and mastering were finished by February 2010. The album was released on May 25, 2010, leading to two singles, "Cinnamon" and "Between the lines." The album sold 62,000 copies the first week and peaked at number 2 on the Billboard charts.    In September 2010, STP announced it was rescheduling several United States tour dates so that the band could take a "short break." STP toured Southeast Asia for the first time in 2011, playing in the Philippines (Manila), Singapore, and Indonesia (Jakarta). In addition, the band played successful shows in Australia, including sell-out performances in Sydney and Melbourne.   Dean DeLeo told Rolling Stone in December 2011, "What I'd like to see happen is the band go out and do more intimate shows – really lovely theaters around the country." DeLeo also suggested a possible extended reissue of Core, including live archived material, "We have tons of live recordings from that era, and we didn't multi-track record that stuff. There's no fixes, so they'd sound incredible if we just master them." Scott Weiland also commented on the 20th anniversary of Core, saying, "Well, we're doing a lot of special things. [There's] a lot of archival footage that we're putting together, a coffee table book, hopefully a brand new album – so many ideas. A box set and then a tour, of course."    "Alive in the Windy City," STP's first-ever concert film, was released on June 26 on DVD and Blu-ray, filmed at a sold-out show in March 2010 at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago. STP began to experience problems in 2012. Some were said to have been caused by tensions between Weiland and the rest of the band. Despite the band claiming that their fall tour would be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Core, it never happened. The rest of STP did not want to do the celebration because they believed that Weiland no longer had the vocal range to perform some of the album's songs. Weiland decided to perform the songs they did not want to play on one of his solo tours. The rest of the band didn't tell Weiland that they were pissed, which made him assume that everything was cool. On September 17, set to perform at a show in Abbotsford, British Columbia, STP arrived nearly two hours late and cut their set 30 minutes short, pissing off the crowd. The following day, the band released a brief statement announcing that that night's show in Lethbridge, Alberta, was canceled because Weiland was ordered to go on "48 hours complete vocal rest due to strained vocal cords." On December 7, hearing rumors that Weiland was open to returning to Velvet Revolver, a radio D.J. asked Slash about his possible return. Slash then told radio station 93X that he had heard rumors Weiland had been fired from STP. He claimed Weiland wanting to return to Velvet Revolver had something to do with that, something that Weiland quickly dismissed.   On February 27, 2013, shortly before this solo tour was set to commence, Stone Temple Pilots announced on their website that "...they [had] officially terminated Scott Weiland." Of course, that termination came as news to Scott. He fired back with a statement of his own that set the stage for what was sure to be an epic showdown, saying, "Not sure how I can be 'terminated' from a band I founded," "but that's something for the lawyers to figure out." Just one day before he was fired from the band, Weiland was giving interviews saying STP was working on tour plans, just another example of how significant the divide between him and his bandmates was.   Chester Bennington of Linkin Park appeared as a special guest on May 18, 2013, with the three remaining members of STP, performing at the 21st Annual KROQ Weenie Roast and the May 19, 2013, Live 105 BFD festival near San Francisco, where they performed a new song, "Out of Time." STP released a free download of their new single "Out of Time" with Bennington on May 19, 2013, citing him as an official member. Bennington had exclaimed that being in STP was his lifelong dream in interviews years before. On May 30, 2013, The new lineup performed, at the MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit Concert in Los Angeles, California. They were joined by Weiland's former bandmates Slash and Duff McKagan on to perform Mott the Hooples "All the Young Dudes", a song originally written by David Bowie. STP then announced that they would head out on a small tour in September with Filter opening up. They released a five-track E.P. titled High Rise on October 8, 2013, simply called Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington. "Black Heart," the album's second single, was released through iHeart Radio on September 18, 2013. STP dropped "with Chester Bennington" officially from their name in March 2015. On November 9, 2015, Bennington announced he was leaving Stone Temple Pilots to put more focus on Linkin Park. Chester Bennington committed suicide on July 20, 2017.   Sadly, by the beginning of 2015, all signs pointed to a new cycle of relapse for Scott Weiland. While on tour with his backing band, The Wildabouts, there were rumors the Weiland had started using drugs again. The tour with the Wildabouts was not going as well as Weiland was hoping it would, and soon his rollercoaster life would come to an end. On December 3, Scott Weiland and his Wildabouts limped into Bloomington, Minnesota, to discover that their show had been canceled due to poor sales. The man who once held stadiums captivated in the palm of his hand could not even sell 100 tickets. Just before 9 pm on December 3, in a hotel parking lot just south of Minneapolis, Scott Weiland was found dead in the bunk of his tour bus. He was 48. He had finally hit rock bottom. The medical examiner later determined the cause of death to be an accidental overdose. An array of drugs were found on his tour bus, including cocaine, marijuana, bipolar medication, and anti-anxiety medication for treating addiction. Wildabouts bassist Tommy Black was arrested at the scene on drug charges. Weiland was no apologist for his behavior. Even as far back as the 90s, he admitted that he was entirely responsible for his actions and recovery. "There's no way you can place the blame on anyone but yourself, although, because I am a drug addict, I don't believe I have control over what I do when I start using it, because I feel totally powerless," he said. "But I'm still accountable for what happens."   A few days after his death, Weiland's second wife, Mary Forsberg, wrote a jagged open letter to Rolling Stone magazine. "Noah and Lucy never sought perfection from their dad," she wrote. "They just kept hoping for a little effort. If you're a parent not giving your best effort, all anyone asks is that you try just a little harder and don't give up." Her comments underscore the heartbreaking truth: that among the singer's family, friends and bandmates, in the end, it seemed that the one who cared least about Scott Weiland's sobriety was the man who needed it most. Scott. News of Weiland's death quickly spread throughout the internet, with many of his musical peers, including his former band members, along with fans and music critics throughout the world, sharing their condolences, tributes, and memories. A day following his death, his former bandmates in Stone Temple Pilots issued a statement saying that he was "gifted beyond words" but acknowledged his struggle with substance abuse, calling it "part of [his] curse." A quiet funeral for Scott was held at Hollywood Forever Cemetery on December 11, 2015, in Los Angeles. Members of both Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver attended. Chris Kushner, the wife of Velvet Revolver guitarist Dave Kushner, wrote on her Instagram page following the funeral, "A very sad day when (you) bury a friend. He was a good man. Don't believe everything (you) read. Remember, we were all there." Weiland's body was cremated. Mary Forsberg and the two children were not in attendance, later having a private ceremony in honor of their beloved family member.   In February 2016, the remaining members of Stone Temple Pilots went to the internet searching for a new vocalist, stating on their official website: "If you think you have what it takes to front this band, record with this band, and tour with this band, we would dig hearing from you."   STP announced that a 25th-anniversary edition of Core would be released on September 29, 2017. The reissue includes a 25th Anniversary box set, a remastered version of the album, previously unreleased demos and b-sides, and parts of three live performances from 1993  On November 14, 2017, the band revealed that nu-metal band, Dry Cell vocalist Jeff Gutt had been selected as their new frontman. On November 15, 2017, the band released a new song, "Meadow," from the upcoming studio album. On January 31, 2018, the band released a second new song, "Roll Me Under," and announced the release of its seventh studio album. The self-produced L.P., the band's second self-titled album, was released on March 16, 2018, and was their first album with vocalist Jeff Gutt. In mid-2018, the band embarked on a co-headlining tour with Bush and The Cult.   On September 4, 2018 They announced a 15 date Canadian tour with the band Seether.   On November 30, 2018, STP's current label announced the following: "There is a manufacturing error on vinyl copies of Live 2018 that was caused by a defective lathe, resulting in the album playing at a 4% slower speed. We deeply apologize for this unfortunate occurrence and promise to provide replacement copies to everyone that purchased."   May 3, 2019 – – Stone Temple Pilots and Rival Sons announced they will embark on their first-ever co-headlining U.S. tour in the fall. Produced by Live Nation, the exclusive 12-city outing would kick off September 13 in Baltimore and see the two bands performing on intimate stages across the states. These included The Met Philadelphia, Ford Amphitheater in New York City, The Fillmore New Orleans, and more before wrapping October 9 in San Diego.     June 6, 2019, STP Celebrated the 25th anniversary of "Purple" by releasing a 3-CD/1-LP "super deluxe edition" set including a newly remastered version of the original studio album on both CD and vinyl, plus unreleased versions of album tracks and rarities, along with an unreleased full concert recording from 1994. A limited-edition bundle of the PURPLE: SUPER DELUXE EDITION was also available that included a bonus replica 7-inch vinyl single of "Interstate Love Song" that was initially released in the U.K. in 1994. This exclusive bundle is limited to 1,000 copies.   January 24, 2020, The band announced they had to cancel their "Perdida" tour to support their newest album of the same name. The press announcement "We are sorry to announce that we must cancel the upcoming Perdida acoustic tour. Our brother Jeff has a severely herniated disc and doctors have advised immediate surgery which will require weeks of recovery time and physical therapy. Thankfully, Jeff is expected to make a full recovery and we will continue with our Australian tour with Live and Bush in April, the summer tour with Nickelback, and we hope to reschedule the Perdida tour later this year." You thought it was COVID, didn't you?   STP had several live stream performances during 2020, including playing "Core" and "Purple" in their entirety.    On March 25, 2021, They celebrated the 25th anniversary of "Tiny Music..." with the announcement of a super deluxe remastered edition. The 3-CD/1-LP set combined a newly remastered version of the album with unreleased early takes, alternate versions, instrumentals, a full never-before-released MTV Spring Break performance from 1997, as well as a previously unreleased alternate version of the album's first single, "Big Bang Baby."   And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is the story of Stone Temple Pilots. An excellent start to the plethora of Icons and Outlaws we'll be discussing every week.    The research from this episode is due in part from Scott Weiland's Memoir "Not Dead and Not For Sale" classicrock.com Stonetemplepilots.com Adam Moody Articles by Stephen Thomas Erlewine at allmusic.com wikipedia albumoftheyear.org Billboard.com Consider being a producer of the show. www.iconsandoutlaws.com www.accidentaldads.com

Justin Farrar's first appearance on the show was a dense journey through the history of rock music and American counterculture, and it got me thinking about (and listening to) The Doors for the first time in years. Like many of us, I grew up with Jim Morrison's iconic presence looming out from lots of different corners: posters in head shops, t-shirts worn by stoned high schoolers, the Oliver Stone movie (and attendant urban legends about Val Kilmer's eerily channeled performance), and above everything else, the weird, ubiquitous music of The Doors themselves, blasting out of oldies stations and tape decks in friends' cars. In this conversation, Justin returns to share his ideas about The Doors as both a musical act and cultural phenomenon, as we consider how the group's pulsing blues rock and dark poetry synced so magically with the apocalyptic historical moment from which it emerged.  To accompany this episode, Justin has created 2 different excellent Spotify playlists:   The Doors Legacy: Art Rock, Punk, Post-Punk, Goth, Alt-Rock, Experimental        Songs from artists influenced by Morrison/The Doors The Doors: California Noir        Songs from The Doors that capture the dark underbelly of Los Angeles Listen to the whole episode and access all our bonus content: patreon.com/posts/episode-323-red-65611155

Welcome back for another episode of Nick's Non-fiction with your host Nick Muniz! Poet, shaman, Dionysian drunk, and druggie, Doors lead singer Jim Morrison quickly achieved cult status after his death in 1971. In The Lizard King, Jerry Hopkins reassesses Jim Morrison's life and provides fresh insights into this powerful and troubled talent, considering him as a human being rather than the myth he has become. At the heart of the book is a series of interviews with Morrison by journalists Ben Fong-Torres and Richard Goldstein. Published uncut, they present a previously unseen Morrison: articulate, intelligent, witty, even self-deprecating. Hopkins includes updates on the people the "erotic politician" left behind.
