STP Documentary in the Works


Film catches Stone Temple Pilots at work on next album
Posted Mar 7, 2001 at 12:00am
The Stone Temple Pilots have enlisted longtime band photographers Chapman and Rebecca Baehler to film a documentary of their current recording sessions. For the album-in-progress, the follow-up to 1999's No. 4, the quartet has installed a studio into a hilltop villa in Malibu. They're again working with producer Brendan O'Brien, whose produced all of the group's albums to date.

The brother-sister photo team will be filming studio sessions as well as behind-the-scenes material. The as-yet-untitled documentary might see a theatrical release, as the Baehlers are currently seeking a distribution deal. If not, the film will likely see a VHS/DVD release around the same time as the new record's release, sometime late in 2001/early 2002.

Elsewhere, Scott Weiland and Co. have lent a previously unreleased live video recording of "Down" to the forthcoming Playstation II snowboarding game, "Cool Borders 2001." The band has also lent "Heaven and Hot Rods" (both songs originally appeared on No. 4) to the game.

Weiland and guitarist Dean DeLeo also added vocals and guitar, respectively, to a remix of the Wallflowers' "Letters From the Wasteland." Sessions for the remix were held recently at Village Recorder Studios in Los Angeles with Andy Slater and Michael Penn working the board, though no release date for the single bas been set.
