Stone Temple Pilots performed for troops on Thursday night in Okinawa, Japan. It was the band’s first performance since Dean DeLeo’s estranged wife accused him of abuse.

Robert DeLeo wrote on Instagram, “It was an immense honor playing for the troops at the Kadena Air Force Base in Okinawa, Japan last night. Thank you for the hospitality!”

Fuel singer Brett Scallions joined the band onstage during the set. Watch videos below.

My love for the #StoneTemplePilots has been reignited!

Stone Temple Pilots members Jeff Gutt and Eric Kretz were recently interviewed by Brad Copeland of the Rick & Brad Morning Show. They discussed the band’s current setlist. Alternative Nation transcribed their comments.

Kretz said, “Now we get to pull out stuff that we haven’t really busted into in 20 years.”

They were asked if any songs were off limits to play without Scott Weiland, and Gutt seemed hesitant to perform “Sour Girl.”

He said, “That’s more up to these guys, but I have a particular thing with ‘Sour Girl’ because I feel it’s a personal message. To me, that one is a little off limits. But other than that, I’m game.”

Kretz said about the auditions, “It’s a tough thing, because we wanted to give people a variety of songs to choose from. Because some people’s voices were great for ‘Interstate Love Song,’ but then when they got to ‘Dead and Bloated’ they just couldn’t hit, or something like Piece of Pie, whereas Jeff can hit everything.”

Gutt said about the new STP album, “I did a lot of research, many many hours, days, maybe months of research, on the writing styles, and the differences, and what I could bring forward that made sense, that I could do as myself, that would still make it still sound like a Stone Temple Pilots record. That’s why it sounds like something new, but familiar at the same time.”

    Put out songs you havent played in 20 years? Looks like a standard setlist to me.

    These guys never give an interview without Scott Weiland’s name coming up. Someone said recently that Stone Temple Pilots were over when Scott left. I don’t know about that but sometimes it seems that this band is consistently trying to prove that the statement isn’t true.

      Sir that be me, no Scott no pilots. Scott Weiland found out where the river goes, meanwhile his band mates paddle up stream.

    Who wrote that backwardass headline?

      Sorta funny…sounds like Stones Temple Pilots are back but only after Dean DeLeo finished up with Fuel Singer.

      • Julie L.

        Seriously. I thought, “Allegations with Fuel’s singer? Did they fight? Are they having an affair?” Haha!

    Fuel – another solid late 90s/early 00s band. One of my favorites as a teenager and college student.

    Mr. Bret Scallions on Big Empty. He sounds pretty good.

  • Brandon Connelly

    I saw STP 10 times with Scott. Honestly watching these videos it looks like theyre just trying to clone him. The movements and the vocals. Honestly its pretty sad to watch. Scott was a legendary singer, band should have went on with another singer and another persona.

    Gutt did many months of STP research, all right, and I think some of it was learning to sing just like Weiland.
