Scott Weiland: Stream The Solo Record, Winter Tour, Regency Grand In February

Okay, so first let us do our part by quickly admitting our mistakes: We had (apparently overzealously) reported that Scott Weiland would be playing the Regency Grand late this month to support his new record. Well, it turns out he will be playing the Regency Grand, just not until February 5th. In fact, he has a nationwide tour planned that will cover both coasts (and in between) over the next few months. Frankly, we think this is a good thing, as it gives us time to get nice and familiar with his new solo record Happy In Galoshes.

Now, about that record. Frankly, we're sorta fan boys for Scott Weiland. We even met him in a bar in LA once, and he was a most gracious and chill dude. What's more, the guy has a killer voice and real rock and roll attitude. Sure he's had his share of rough spots, but we basically loved everything STP put out, and (even if we were in the minority) we really, really, liked his first solo album. The Velvet Revolver stuff was a little too far into the "hard rock" arena for our liking, and so we're glad to see him coming a bit back to the middle on the new solo disc. That disc drops next week, but you can hear it in its entirety right now at Mr. Weiland's myspace page. Enjoy.
