Watch STP’s second unreleased ‘Cinnamon’ video
Have Stone Temple Pilots gone country? Not exactly. But, a glance at the band’s second lost music video for their track “Cinnamon” would make one think Scott Weiland and company have stepped over to the country side.
As the story goes, last week, one of the two discarded music videos for Stone Temple Pilots’ track “Cinnamon” off their 2010 self-titled comeback album surfaced on the web. The clip showed a bright, blissful, wild child party atmosphere, with Weiland and the guys looking disinterested in their blissful surroundings. Apparently, Stone Temple Pilots weren’t happy with the video, so they threw it to the chopping block.
Now, a second discarded music video for “Cinnamon” has surfaced, and this one features classic black-and-white shots of the band in Western mode, plus cool retro-looking live shots splattered throughout the clip. Watch the latest “Cinnamon” video, below. Reportedly, Stone Tempe Pilots weren’t happy with this video, either, and ditched it. What do you think of Stone Temple Pilots’ castoff videos? We actually think this one would have made a solid release.
Stone Temple Pilots are revving up for a big 2012, packed with goodies to honor of the 20th anniversary of band’s debut full-length, “Core.” The collection — which dropped Sept. 29, 1992 — went on to score the band a crop of grunge classics, among them “Creep,” “Plush,” “Dead and Bloated” and “Wicked Garden.” To celebrate the pivotal release, Weiland and the crew have stated that they plan to do a proper North American tour and possibly put together a new album this year.
