"I believe that Stone Temple Pilots' catalog has really stood the test of time, and that the band and their songs sound as good today as they ever have," said Bug Music senior VP of creative services Eddie Gomez. "We are very proud to be working with Scott and representing his interest in the STP catalogue."
