Back in 2011 Scott Weiland channeled his inner Bing Crosby on an album titled "The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year". Very off brand for the sinuous singer of STP and Velvet Revolver. But what stands out while sipping nog and listening to Weiland croon Carols is, his voice works on whatever he sang. So, November 8th, the 2011 Christmas album will be reissued, this time with a previously unreleased version of the John Lennon/Yoko Ono "Happy Christmas War is Over". When asked why, Scott's reply was: “Well, you know what, man? People don't know me. They know what someone's opinion is. And they know my songs. But they really don't know me. Christmas, ever since I was a kid, was a big thing. It still is a big thing.” then shared a few cozy memories I'm glad he had: “My memories of Christmas are very joyful,” he says. “It was a special time. I remember we would wake up in the morning, and my father would put on the record player and play old albums. He would usually start out with orchestral versions of classics and chorals. Listening to those songs is something I always remember."
