Howard Stern Makes Sad Chris Cornell & Scott Weiland Claim


Howard Stern claimed in his fantastic new book ‘Howard Stern Comes Again’ that after the days of Scott Weiland and Chris Cornell ruling rock with their bands Stone Temple Pilots and Soundgarden, he feared he was becoming out of touch, as that was the last era of music he was passionately in. Stern revealed what Chris Cornell told him about Kurt Cobain’s death in an ABC interview.

“I never wanted to be one of those old fogies who say, “Back in my day was when music was really great.” Being aware of new music has also been a prerequisite for my job, so that I can comment on contemporary culture. In the nineties, when I was in my forties working at K-Rock, I was very much up on alternative rock: Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Nirvana. I loved all that stuff. I never thought I would be in danger of being out of touch.

Then recently I was looking at a list of the top five songs in the country and it happened. ‘Oh my God,’ I thought. I don’t know any of them. I’m officially that guy. Who’s this Lil Xan, and why is he getting all these face tattoos? Wait, he once dated Miley Cyrus’s little sister?

Miley Cyrus has a little sister? When did that happen? And who’s this Mac Miller that Ariana Grande is grieving over? A Jewish rapper? How the hell did I miss that?” The good news is I’m not completely hopeless. One young artist I love is Ed Sheeran.”

Stone Temple Pilots have announced that they will reissue their second album Purple to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

PURPLE: SUPER DELUXE EDITION will be available on September 13. The 3-CD/1-LP set includes 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.
