I have always liked Stone Temple Pilots. To me they where one of those bands. You like their stuff but you never A. get around to or B. have the dough to buy their stuff. Well i bit the bullet and got No.4, It is a great album. Once i had that i had to investigate further. I now have Core and Purple(i am missing only Tiny music). I love Robert DeLeo playing. He does not overplay in the slightest. He mostly follows the guitar then when you least expect it(but when it is perfect) he tosses out the greatest licks. I love the decending lick he plays in "creep" from core. This guy is a serious player!! I keep hearing that he is also an acoplished guitar player and that he writes with other artist? anyone know anything about this.
