    Mick Blankenship is an amazing vocalist with unbelievable range. Check Mick’s page out on youtube. He also plays drums, guitar, and so on. Mick has a God given musical talent that I hope STP, someday soon, realizes as their vocalist. Not to miss the fact that Mick has a heart for helping others and no issues that would soil STP’s future. Mick is a good guy that has timeless old STP down to a science but, has the talent to help STP continue into a successful future. Mick is not looking to replace STP’s unbelievably talented Scott Weiland, no one ever will, God bless his soul. Mick is however looking to continue a bands timeless sound that plays in millions of people’s heads dailey. Mick wants to give STP the ability to play old songs if they want. But, more importantly for STP, Mick, and fans world wide, also bring the talent to take STP in whatever direction STP sees fit for the future. If they continue to wait, the future may never come, at least with a guy like Mick Blankenship. STP’s loss of that comes to fruition. On the other hand, why not have a guy on board that can do the old and anything new. God bless.
