    Great band through the initial run, albums and in concert. Great live band when Weiland came back. With Diet Weiland they’re probably a fun night out but they’re not a band that generates traction beyond the draw of the STP name. Maybe with better songs, but the Deleo bros mostly mailed it in post hiatus.

    I see they are coming out with a new album and a new singer. I listen to a cut the other day , pretty good.

    You could always hear those AC30'S screaming from the stage!

    Love the band and am glad they've been able to keep it together after losing one of the best frontman and singer ever, then losing Chester....damn.

    One of my all-time favorite riffs!
    Love STP, great songs with a great vibe to them.
    Saw them in a club after their third album (some promotional thing) and they really shined in that setting.

    I really liked the early stuff with Scott.

    I didn't listen to them much until about 6 years ago I went to learn Interstate, was hooked, bought the entire catalogue. I've probably learned 12-15 of their songs in recent years.
    I'd says Tiny Music and #4 are the pinnacle, amazing songs. I really like the new one with Jeff on vocals as well. Couple great tunes on there. They tour this fall with Rival Sons and I bought tix for that show in October.

    It's the bass that drives (and makes) many of their songs... not surprisingly!

    I was initially taken aback by your comments on Robert's bass on the first album. But you're right, it's not as forward in the mix as the later albums.

    My fave of theirs - and I like a lot of what they did
    That song checks off so many boxes

    Seen them live twice. Once with the Butthole Surfers and the Meat Puppets and Red Cross. Both stellar performances!

    If plush comes on the radio, I am compelled to turn the radio up at least double. 25 years strong now.

    Great band with many jams. I hope the new singer continues weiland’s vibe the same way Alice In Chains kept theirs with the new singer.

    One of my fav bands from the 90s. Core is towards the bottom of my STP preferred listens.
    The vocals that Scott came up with, the killer bass lines, creative drumming...the greatness of that band, like many great bands, is the package deal.
    I like Scott's last cd, Scott & the Wildabouts. No denying his talent.

    Here's a cool clinic with Robert that sheds some light on how important he and the bass is to some of the most popular songs:

    I feel the same.
    Kind of a modern day(well, maybe not THAT modern) badge without the guitar solo.

    A great song.

    Robert Deleo was/is a huge part of the song writing process but Dean is still a beast, he has the sensibilities to dial in the right tones to suit the songs
    so lucky to be such a talented team of brothers

    my bro played drums in Redd Kross and got us tix to see the show
    the giant lava lamps were awesome. I didn't know STP very well back then. My bro and I walked around the arena corridors chatting for half the STP set, tho...I don't remember where...somewhere in Oakland I think

    I did just give it another listen, yo
    that was my point!
    I am certain I have listened to over 1000 plays in the past 25 years of Core and Purple

    Whatever the bass voicings and fun playing you may feel
    have a critical listen to Core, and I know what I hear

    I remember talking to my pal Eddie Kurdziel (RIP) about Robert's high music IQ and even more importantly, ability. Robert Deleo is a monster player. Eddie said Robert was living in the back of his truck in LA and could play all the Rush and King Crimson parts and then some. Eddie said he hung out with Robert back then on occasion and his talent was simply amazing. Further, Eddie pretty much said Robert penned the tunes for those first two records, like you say :) Things I heard said about Weiland from many people were seldom regarding music.

    I always felt Interstate Love Song is a perfect radio rock song, just killer! Perfect duration and structure and performed...perfectly!

    Most of Deans live sound is Demeter pre amp, VHT power amp and a Marshall 4x12 with Vintage 30’s. The Vox Ac30’s were set to verge of breaking up and blended in the mix.
