Slash reminisced to Rolling Stone that the band learned a few valuable lessons during the Weiland era. He also mentioned that the band continues to write new material, as well as audition singers for the vocal position left vacant when Weiland decided to rejoin – or got booted, depending on who you believe – his old bandmates in Stone Temple Pilots.

The Mississippi Delta recently took a giant step toward preserving and uplifting its rich blues tradition. Two weeks ago, the B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretative Center held its grand opening, and thus far the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Located in King’s hometown of Indianola, Miss., the museum tells the story of the blues ? via photos, artifacts, and interactive technology ? through the prism of the 83-year-old legend’s life. “It’s going to be educational to people, young and old, because it’s going to talk about the origins of the blues,” King told the Associated Press, in an article published this past weekend. “I’m just one who carried the baton because it was started long before me.”
