Wednesday 12/2/2020 8pm ET: Feature Artist / LP: Scott Wieland – 12 Bar Blues (1998)

On this anniversary of Scott Wieland’s passing, we feature his first solo album.  12 Bar Blues is the debut solo album from Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland. Released March 31, 1998. Its sound and style differ greatly from STP’s previous releases. The design concept of the cover is a homage to the cover design of John Coltrane’s Blue Train album.
