Stone Temple Pilots want you to create new video
... Stone Temple Pilots
in partnership with Genero.tv are giving fans the chance to make the official music video for new track 'Black Heart'. Genero.tv is an Australian based website, started in 2009, to brings creative filmmakers and the music and advertising industries together. The way it works is that artists such as the Stone Temple Pilots
lend their music to the project and then filmmakers from all over the world send in their submissions to become the official music video. With the lack of any kind of brief from the band, Genero.tv encourages filmmakers to be creative with their ideas. It's certainly fitting that the word 'genero' is Latin for 'to create'. In addition to the honour of having your video becoming the official STP
'Black Heart' video, the winner will also be paid a cool $5000 for their effort. Other artists that have partnered with Genero.tv include Moby, Alt-J, M83, Muse, David Bowie and Australia's own Temper Trap for their hit, 'Love Lost'.

Weiland spent five months in jail in 1999 for violating probation after a heroin conviction. He was arrested on drug charges again in 2003 and served six months of rehab.
Weiland has been diagnosed with manic-depressive disorder. He would often refuse to take medication for it and had lots of mood swings as a result.
The band are big supporters of the 2001 movie and off-Broadway play Hedwig And The Angry Itch. It is about a German boy who gets a botched sex-change operation, moves to a Kansas trailer park, and starts a band called Hedwig. STP has dressed up and performed as Hedwig on a few occasions.
The band originally went by STP, but got into some legal trouble from using the name (STP is a brand of engine treatment). They came up with three words to use instead, which at first were Shirley Temple's P--sy. They eventually changed it to Stone Temple Pilots.
In 1997, while Scott Weiland was having legal problems stemming from his drug addiction, the other three members formed a side band called Talk Show with former Ten Inch Men singer David Coutts. They released their self-titled album in 1997. Coutts was fired from Talk Show in March of 1998, and the band never released another album. (thanks, Anthony - Arab, AL, for above 2)
In 2004, Weiland joined Velvet Revolver with Guns 'N' Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum. He left and returned to STP in 2008. (thanks, Dave - Dublin, Ireland)
Stone Temple Pilots were voted both Best New Band (by readers) and Worst New Band (by critics) in Rolling Stone's 1994 music awards.
Scott Weiland was born Scott Kent. He changed his last name when his stepfather David Weiland officially adopted him.
Describing his cocaine-fueled hallucinations in his book Not Dead & Not For Sale, Weiland says: "There were actual forms facing me, the faces of skeletons."
Scott Weiland was fired by the band in 2013 on February 27, 2013. Weiland responded to the firing with his own statement, "I learned of my supposed 'termination' from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press. Not sure how I can be 'terminated' from a band that I founded, fronted and co-wrote many of its biggest hits, but that's something for the lawyers to figure out."
On May 18, 2013 the remaining members of Stone Temple Pilots performed together for the first time since firing Scott Weiland, appearing as special guests at the 21st Annual KROQ Weenie Roast, benefiting Heal the Bay. Linkn Park's Chester Bennington was the replacement vocalist. Bennington said of the union, "I've loved STP since I was 13 years old and they've had a huge influence on me. When the opportunity came up to do something creative with them, I jumped at the chance."
