Since the moment they appeared on the scene in 1992, Stone Temple Pilots dominated the decade from start to finish, racking up 15 hit singles on the Billboard Top Ten, winning a “Best Hard Rock Performance” Grammy® Award in 1994 for “Plush,” and having their five albums sell 40 million copies worldwide.

In 2003 STP lead singer Scott Weiland joined Velvet Revolver, a hard rock super group consisting of former Guns N’ Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan, and Matt Sorum, with Dave Kushner formerly of punk band Wasted Youth. Velvet Revolver ruled post ‘90s rock radio and received one GRAMMY® Award for “Slither” in 2005 as Best Hard Rock Performance.

The song “Fall to Pieces” received a nomination for Song of the Year/Rock Radio in 2005. The band won the Best International Newcomer Kerrang! Award in 2004 while they were nominated for a Rock Artist of the Year Billboard Music Award in 2005. Weiland left the band in 2008, and reported to the press recently the possibility of a 2012 reunion.
