Stone Temple Pilots Land Ohio Festival Headline Spot

February 12, 2008 3:35 PM ET

The rumors are true: A reunited Stone Temple Pilots will headline this year's Rock on the Range festival in Columbus, Ohio. It will be the band's first concert in six years. Last week, Scott Weiland, currently the lead singer of Velvet Revolver, entered a rehab center after a recent DUI arrest, throwing VR's planned Australian tour (and casting doubt on Weiland's own claims that STP would reunite) in jeopardy. However, VR guitarist Slash also confirmed the Stone Temple reunion. As of yet, no other STP dates have been revealed. The Rock on the Range festival runs May 17th & 18th at Columbus Crew Stadium, and tickets go on sale on Saturday, February 23rd.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
