Growing up, I listened to the Stone Temple Pilots a LOT. They were one of my go-to, favorite bands, back when people listened to music on cassette tapes and carried boom boxes and walkmen.
In August 2010, I got a chance to photograph them live in concert, and it was everything I was hoping it would be. It's not often that heroes live up to the hype. It was a memory I will hold on to for the rest of my life.
In light of the tragic news of lead singer Scott Weiland's death this morning, I wanted to post a few photos from that night. Scott will be missed.
