Reviews

Thanks to San Antonio Weekender: The San Diego-bred band makes a quick return, opening for Megadeth in a half-empty Freeman ( the crowd was 3,000, max), and the building was cut in half to start with. In an interview with Jim in advance of the show, singer Weiland (he didn’t use Scott back then) described the band’s musical influences: “Robert and Dean (De Leo) grew up experimenting with album-oriented-rock. Dean turned Robert on to everything from Led Zeppelin to Yes to Black Sabbath … I grew up in a real backwards, country-oriented town in northeastern Ohio, and I don’t have an older brother, so I wasn’t exposed to that ’70s hard rock. I can’t say I sat around in my room with black lights on listening to Led Zeppelin and shooting dope. My first experience with rock ‘n’ roll was Cheap Trick, Kiss and Sweet.”

He also told Jim that “Core’s” original title was “Vatican Gift Shop.” As for the show itself, here’s what I wrote: Though Stone Temple Pilots’ lead singer Weiland seemed a bit miffed that the crowd reaction wasn’t any louder, the opening act turned in a solid 40-minute set that comprised nine of the 12 songs off its debut album, “Core.” Weiland drew scattered boos after declaring, “Come on, rock ‘n’ roll fans, this ain’t a f—in’ Wayne Newton show,” but the Pilots still put on a grungefest that would do justice to the Seattle crowd.
