Update: Congratulations to Bridget Dyer. Her and a guest will be our guests at the show tonight featuring Stone Temple Pilots, who, as correctly noted by everyone that responded, was originally known as the Mighty Joe Young before briefly changing their moniker to Shirley Temple's Pussy and then eventually settling on their current handle.
It's been a minute since Scott Weiland and his Stone Temple Pilots band mates have embarked on a headlining tour, and it's been even longer since they recorded any new music. In fact, the outfit has spent the better part of the current decade on the sidelines as Weiland focused on Velvet Revolver and his various solo endeavors. By all accounts, such inactivity would prove terminal for most bands in terms of momentum. Yet as a testament to the profound impact the act had during the '90s, if not the staying power of the music, STP's still able to play rooms the size of the Fillmore. The same cannot be said of a good majority of STP's contemporaries. Needless to say, it will be interesting to see if the band is still firing on all cylinders after all these years or if it has lost a step. Find out for yourself: We've got a pair of tickets up for grabs. For your chance to win, drop us a line and tell us the original name of the band, and we'll pick a winner from the correct answers later this afternoon. Good luck!
