    Here are the lyrics

    The Man I Didn't Know (S. Weiland)
    Step out on the pouring rain
    Left out on the evening train
    I was just a little boy
    thinking about the memories
    father that you used to be

    San Jose is a sun-drenched town
    Your old truck with the windows rolled down
    Jerry Jeff riding high on the radio
    I wanna know why you had to go

    Took a plane to California yeah
    End of summer 1970's
    Telling you that you're the man
    that taught me how to sing
    Why did you go
    Leave me so young..so young..so young

    Tell me things that I wanna know
    Now I'm a man with a family of my own
    Why'd you go and leave me in the cold
    with the face in the mirror of the man I didn't know

    In the desert where the warm wind blows
    where'd you go when I was so alone
    Those California nights would be so cold
    I wanna know the man I didn't know

    Now I'm the one with the radio song
    The wife and kids that tell me what's wrong
    I need the man in my life
    who made me who I am
    I don't want to lose you again

    Took a plane to California yeah
    End of summer 1970's
    Telling you that you're the man
    that taught me how to sing
    Why did you go
    Leave me so young.. so long.. so young

    Tell me things that I wanna know
    Now I'm a man with a family of my own
    Why'd you go and leave me in the cold
    with the face in the mirror of the man I didn't know

    In the desert where the warm wind blows
    where d'you go when I was so alone
    Those California nights can be so cold
    I wanna know the man I didn't know

    Go...

    (guitar solo)

    Tell me things that I wanna know
    Now I'm a man with a family of my own
    Why'd you go and leave me in the cold
    with the face in the mirror of the man I didn't know

    In the desert where the warm wind blows
    where'd you go when I was so alone
    Those California nights can be so cold
    I wanna know the man I didn't know

    I wanna know

    The man I didn't know.

    OK so it sounds like he is doing an impression of David Bowie doing an impression of Neal Diamond. I think Weiland is a great vocalist but I don't think I care for his taste as a solo musician. Thus far STP or nothing for me on the Scott Weiland front.

    I don't think its a totally different direction entirely. I really think that is the kind of tunes that Weiland digs. You can hear him dip into in the later STP. The guy can sing.

    Yeah i really like the diversity of STP and Scotts ability to go in other directions vocaly.
     
  11. Did anyone enjoy his first solo record? There were some nice moments on that (excluding Barbarella...crap song)

    Jimmy was a stimulator was really great.

    I dug some of the stuff from his first solo album. It has never really in regular rotation for me though.

    It's pretty good, I'm listening to it right now.

    On a side note: Velvet Revolver cancelled the concert here in Iceland :bawl:
