The Dude's Bio
After breaking into the radio business in 2003, it didn't take long for The Dude to get his name. When all the fox jocks heard that there was a new intern named Shannon their reaction was "Ohhhh! Is she hot?" However to everyone's disappointment Shannon turned out to be a "Dude" which is how the name came about. After a long three years of enduring constant harassment from Dwight of The Rude Awakening which included lap dances and daily groping, The Dude finally made it to the air waves in February 2006 catering to the stoners, drunks, and 3rd shifters of the world while still providing visual proof of his man-hood when neccessary..

It just keeps getting uglier and uglier in STP land. Scott Weiland, former Stone Temple Pilots front man, was sued last month by the other three members of the band for allegedly costing them millions of dollars for showing up late to concerts and missing promotional opportunities. They also don't want Weiland to be able to perform any STP songs at his solo shows or even refer to himself to a former member of the band. That's a pretty hefty request considering Weiland wrote all the lyrics to every STP song and sang lead on every song as well.
Now in the latest of this seemingly never-ending STP saga, Weiland is now countersuing his former bandmates for secretly ousting him from the band and is asking for at least 7 million dollars in damages. In a recent interview Weiland said, "I will not sit around and destroy the brand of this band," he told them. "We have to get in the studio and make new music…Fans of STP were so sick of hearing the same songs over and over, the same set list." He continued with, "I think about how disrespectful they are, sometimes, in between a sip of coffee and a hit of my cigarette. I think about how selfish they are and how much it blows me away that after two times of trying this, they still think they have any opportunity of doing it without me. And it's not me saying that I'm the greatest because you know what? I'm not…But as far as this band goes? The vision? The artistic direction of the band? And trying to keep them from sounding like Rush? I'm sorry. I have to be totally honest. It was me. I'm guilty. I kept them from doing it. That's all I've got to say."
As a fan of STP myself it's tough to say who is to blame, who is right and who is wrong but it sounds like both sides are being divas. Weiland may come off as an ass at times but in the end he never tried to tour solo under the Stone Temple Pilots name. With that being said, I am #TeamWeiland. So what do think? Vote Now!
