Stone Temple Pilots: A Second Chance

April 23rd, 2015 by Emily Bloch

When I was 14 years old, I went to a venue that will remain unnamed to see Stone Temple Pilots with my dad. The radio station 93.1 FM, aka 93 Rock, was still alive and well, and its alternative playlist helped me develop a love for the ’90s group. For those who don’t know, Stone…
