#tbt To this blurb from Rolling Stone(?) talking about members of STP performing as the backing band for the (fantastic!) rock musical, Hedwig and the Angry Inch. While Scott Weiland was serving a jail sentence in 1999 Robert and Dean DeLeo and Eric Kretz performed music from the show with creator and star John Cameron Mitchell, composer Stephen Trask, and LA Hedwig Michael Cerveris at a private party at Hollywood club Vinyl. The event celebrated the production’s upcoming LA run.
The blurb reads:
”Stone Temple Pilots came out to lend Hedwig a helping hand when the acclaimed rock musical, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, celebrated the arrival of its L.A. run. With STP singer Scott Weiland in the big house for violating his probation (“At least now we know where he is,” quipped bassist Robert DeLeo), the band was happy as clams to play backup for a couple of drag queens. Joined by composer Stephen Trask on keyboards, Hedwig co-creator John Cameron Mitchell (center, with STP) and L.A. Hedwig Michael Cerveris ran through most of the show’s soundtrack. “The makeup here is more glittery,” said Mitchell about the L.A. audience. “People here have a deep personal appreciation of plastic surgery.” Deeper than the depths of space, in fact.”
