Alright, so here is what I know about STP. The are a
band that was formed in San Diego in 1988. Weiland hooked up with Robert Deleo
at a show in California and then picked up Eric Kretz. and then after finally
convincing Dean Deleo to come to California They were officially known as Mighty
Joe Young. They recieved their first gig in 1990 in a place in L.A. After a
couple of years they got a big show in L.A. They hired agent Don Muller and he

variety, talent, harmony, lyrics and a great overall concept for each album
released.. It would be hard for me to say whichalbum is the "best" as each
carries with it its own style andflavor. Core is STP's forray into "pop"
culture carving out an immmediate presence in the "alternative" arena..Next,
came Purple- although sales were not quite as impressive as their first, this
album dives into new territory for the band..Best tracks include Insterstate
Love Song, Vasoline, Big Empty, and Pretty Penny. Their newest- Tiny ...
