Stone Temple Pilots
Robert and Dean DeLeo got their start playing together in a Long Beach, Calif., band called Mighty Joe Young with drummer Eric Kretz and a gruff-voiced singer named Scott Weiland. Six years later, the band changed its name to Stone Temple Pilots, sold a brisk 8 million copies of its debut album and became one of the faces of the burgeoning grunge rock movement. During Weiland’s stint as singer of Velvet Revolver, the DeLeos, formed a new band, Army of Anyone, with former Filter frontman Richard Patrick. Stone Temple Pilots has since reformed. —Jeff Royer
