He’s not even on the road with his old band Stone Temple Pilots and already facing criticism for his vocal antics. Scott Weiland is in a new band now called The Wildabouts and after the release of the new record called “Blaster” they’ve headed out on the road and after only a few shows in, fans are criticizing him for his rendition of an STP song we all know and love called “Vasoline”. Scott introduced the song as “…a new song…we just worked on today before they launch into “Vasoline” in which Weiland delivers in a rather “monotone shouty (sic) vocal that is not typical of the singer’s usual antics”. As expected, the video has yielded a number of comments on YouTube, ranging from “This is unacceptable” to “How are people cheering for this mess?” Meanwhile, another commenter calls the performance “heartbreaking.” See for yourself….
In his own defence he told TMZ that the performance was the result of lack of sleep, a couple of drinks and a faulty earpiece.
