This man is not a "legend"
I hate to disparage someone so soon after their death, but I take issue with the way people have chosen to remember him.
Eddie Vedder sings like Eddie Vedder because he is Eddie Vedder and cannot not sing like Eddie Vedder. Before Eddie Vedder, nobody in mainstream music was singing like Eddie Vedder. It was only after he became the most instant success out of all the 90's singers that people started to say, "Hey maybe I should go BWEHHHEHEAYYYEAHHHRAWWWN," which they all did, and they all made millions of dollars. Scott Weiland was one of these people.
Scott Weiland's imitation was at best somewhat less offensive as someone like Scott Stapp, and his songwriting was certainly a notch above most of his contemporary grunge imitators, but I am extremely worried that his death has elevated him to a place in rock history where he does not deserve to be. The damn shame is that he was actually a pretty gifted vocalist when he wasn't affecting a yarl, but STP's music makes me cringe because he doesn't sound like himself, he sounds like what was profitable.
tl;dr Scott Weiland was a part of the corporate grunge cash-in and the fact that he is being remembered as a "legendary rocker" and "one of the greatest voices of his generation" makes me extremely uncomfortable.

Hey guys. Are we in agreement that shugazi also includes ambient pop, slowcore, some space rock and some neo-psych?
Also. You'll want to listen to this.
