Here is the beginning of the Wikipedia entry for the Stone Temple Pilots.
Stone Temple Pilots (often abbreviated to STP) is an American rock band from San Diego, California that consists of Scott Weiland (lead vocals), brothers Robert DeLeo (bass guitar, vocals) and Dean DeLeo (guitar), and Eric Kretz (drums, percussion).
After forming in 1986 under the name Mighty Joe Young, the band signed with Atlantic Records and was forced to change its name to Stone Temple Pilots. STP found immediate success in 1993 after releasing their debut album Core (1992), and went on to become one of the most commercially successful bands of the 1990s. The band released four more studio albums: Purple (1994), Tiny Music… Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop (1996), No. 4 (1999) and Shangri-La Dee Da (2001) before separating in 2003, after which the band members partook in various projects, most notably Velvet Revolver and Army of Anyone. STP eventually reconvened in 2008 for a reunion tour, released a new self-titled album in 2010, and have been actively touring since. (Continue Reading…)
Here is AllMusic’s description of Mozart’s Flute Concerto No.2 In D Major, K.314:
For nearly two hundred years, scholars believed Mozart’s Flute Concerto No. 2 in D major, K. 314 (K. 285d) was originally composed for the flute in Mannheim in early 1778. In 1952, musicologist Bernhard Paumgartner demonstrated conclusively that Mozart reworked the Oboe Concerto in C major, K. 271k, into a concerto for flute. Mozart composed the Oboe Concerto for Giuseppe Ferlendis, oboist in the orchestra of the Archbishop of Salzburg, sometime between the beginning of Ferlendis’ service at the Salzburg court (April 1, 1777) and Mozart’s departure for Mannheim (September 22, 1777). Mozart’s father probably sent the manuscript of the Oboe Concerto to Mozart, when he apparently used the work in an attempt to get himself out of an embarrassing situation. According to Mozart, Ferdinand Dejean, a surgeon with the Dutch East India Co. whom Mozart had met in Mannheim, commissioned three flute concertos from the composer. Only one exists from this period, K. 313/285c. Most likely, Mozart revised the Salzburg Oboe Concerto to present to Dejean as a new flute concerto. Mozart never finished the third piece and the composer’s fee was not fully paid. (Dejean also commissioned three flute quartets, only two of which Mozart finished.) Continue Reading…
