The Skinny: Here's the deal. At some point we all need to kill time. And if you're on this site, you probably like to rock. So go ahead and waste your precious time with these PureGrain approved rockin' YouTube videos!

There's no mistaking that Scott Weiland is one of the greatest lead singers and rock n' roll frontmen of the last 25 years, which makes his current state all the more unfortunate. It's safe to say that Weiland has seen better days as he has been taking quite a thrashing in the press lately, both from the public and his former Stone Temple Pilots band mates. Much of the criticism being lobbed at Weiland is due to his, at times less than enthusiastic performances on stage, such as this one with his new band The Wildabouts on April 28th in Corpus Christi, Texas. "Vasoline" will always be considered one of STP's all-time greats, but Weiland does his best butcher job in this performance where he sounds like he's just trying to get finished so he can go home and watch TV. It's sad to say but Weiland seems to have lost himself. Let's all just hope one of the all-time greats can rediscover his passion and energy again soon.
