Robert DeLeo Remembers Stone Temple Pilots “Vasoline” Music Video

Robert DeLeo recently shared a couple of memories of Stone Temple Pilots’ 1994 “Vasoline” music video on his Twitter account. DeLeo revealed that “Vasoline” was his favorite STP video, and that he played the clown in it. He also discussed a famous shot from the video.

“[We were] just in the tree on the ground squatting and standing up. We were coming up with these ideas as we were shooting.”

DeLeo also appeared at NAMM in Anaheim last week with Doug Pinnick from King’s X, and recently wrapped up a short tour of California with his band Delta Deep. You can check out videos from Delta Deeps’s recent shows below DeLeo’s tweets.

    Scott’s dance moves in the Vaseline clip are top-notch, just sayin’.

      When weren’t they?
      I also really like the short dance bits in “Big Bang Baby.” He could MOVE.

        “When weren’t they?”

        I could pose a strong case of 2015 Scott dance moves being well below par, but do I really need to?

          Well, I saw him live in ’09 and he was movin’ and groovin’. I don’t recall seeing later vid of him below par, but I believe it.

            Sorry to say, but he was barely movin, let alone groovin’, on stage during his last few years..

    Vasoline is a pretty sweet video and it’s cool how they have two versions. My favourite part is the last scene when Scott is being pulled forward in the lab coat covered in paint.

    Um, I think you mean Phil Collen from DL. Phil Collins is that other guy.
