SCOTT WEILAND: New Performance, Interview Footage Shot For VH1's 'Behind The Music'

March 20, 2009

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS/ex-VELVET REVOLVER frontman Scott Weiland and his band were filmed performing ten songs in the studio for the upcoming Weiland episode of "Behind The Music", the popular VH1 series that is being revived by the network three years after it stopped producing new installments.

A brand new video blog from Scott's business partner and touring guitarist Doug Grean regarding the "Behind The Music" shoot can be viewed below.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, 10 new "Behind The Music" episodes have been ordered by VH1, with Weiland and rapper Lil Wayne the only subjects confirmed so far. VH1 executive VP of original programming Jeff Olde said about the show's return, "It felt like the time is right. There's all sorts of new artists on the scene who have emerged and have these great stories. And there's other artists that we always wanted to do the first time around."

"Behind The Music" aired regularly between 1997 and 2002, with only a few new episodes produced until 2006.

The show featured segments on a number of iconic hard rock acts, such as METALLICA and PANTERA.

The show's standard formula of showing an artist's rise, fall and comeback was so well-known that "The Simpsons" parodied it in 2000.
