Judith Salkin of the Desert Post Weekly recently interviewed Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo. Below is an excerpt from the interview.
“Touring can be like walking a tightrope without a net under you,” said DeLeo. “Anything can happen.”
In September, Weiland — who has a long history of drug and alcohol issues — announced during a concert in Houston that he’d fallen off the wagon. As a result, the group took a break from the road.
“At the moment, everyone’s healthy and it’s really nice to be together on stage again,” DeLeo said. “These guys are really very dear to me.”
