The members of Stone Temple Pilots have spent much of the past year gritting their teeth. While nearly 4 million fans were bonding with the bittersweet melodies of the quartet's debut album, the band itself was coming apart at the seams. In fact, the success of the group's album, "Core," caused such deep problems within the Southern California group that its members went an entire six months without speaking to one another. The main problem: credibility.

This may remind you of another band, but not Stone Temple Pilots--which it is, save for singer Dave Coutts in place of Scott Weiland--so much as Oasis. Suiting Coutts' sometimes Gallagher-esque voice, Robert DeLeo favors Anglo-rock guitar styles, combining at times with bassist Dean DeLeo and drummer Eric Kretz's metallic whomp to involving effect. But overall this lacks the sonic range and imagination of STP's best.

The state House of Representatives has approved a bill allowing Gov. Deval Patrick to make an interim appointment to the seat left vacant by the death of Democratic U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy last month. The bill now moves to the state Senate, but it is unclear when that chamber might act. House Speaker Robert DeLeo, a Democrat, said the change is needed to ensure that Massachusetts continues to be represented by two senators until voters can choose a replacement in a January special election.

With a career renewal seemingly in process, Stone Temple Pilots are planning a late October or early November release of a compilation culled from their first four albums, plus two new songs. Meanwhile, singer Scott Weiland has been doing some production and guest work on Limp Bizkit's upcoming album, and guitarist Robert DeLeo has been writing songs with Ozzy Osbourne. . . .

"Army of Anyone" Army of Anyone Firm Music Artist info: Richard Patrick's all-too-human vocals (could that be a touch of Yes' Jon Anderson?) soar above the Zeppelinisms, although mercifully not in the traditionally operatic chest-voice fashion. Well-chosen harmonies on choruses and an array of some of the most surprising guitar sounds heard on a commercial rock record this year characterize this descendant of Stone Temple Pilots and Filter.

Is Scott Weiland still the frontman of Stone Temple Pilots? Depends on whom you ask. Early Wednesday, the other three members of that grunge-era holdover -- guitarist Dean DeLeo, bassist Robert DeLeo and drummer Eric Kretz -- released a tersely worded statement declaring that they had  "officially terminated Scott Weiland. " The firing came after what Rolling Stone recently described as "a rocky period" for the band, which following a lengthy break reunited in 2008 and toured heavily in support of a self-titled 2010 album.

Blame it on the bossa nova. That might be the excuse you hear if Stone Temple Pilots fans don't take to some new directions that will be heard on the band's upcoming album, its first since singer Scott Weiland got control over the addiction problems that had clouded the group's career for years. Titled "Shangri-La-Deeda" (a reference to the Malibu mansion where the band lived and recorded during the sessions), the album is due June 26.

Tonight's sold-out benefit at the Hollywood Palladium featuring Orange County pop powerhouse No Doubt is being billed as a concert to "honor the memory" of Brad Nowell, the late singer of the group Sublime. But Nowell's widow doesn't want anybody to get the wrong idea. "It's not a tribute," says the former Troy denDekker, who was married only seven days before her husband injected a fatal heroin overdose last May. "We don't want to glorify the way Brad died."
