Wonderful by Stone Temple Pilots

Album: Shangri-La Dee DaReleased: 2001
  • This was written by Scott Weiland and STP bass player Robert DeLeo while the band was on tour. Weiland considered it a love song for his wife at the time, Mary, dealing with the possibility of loss.

    "'Wonderful' has me dreaming about my death," he wrote in his memoir. "In the next world, I envision Mary as my guide."

    Mary Forsberg was Weiland's second wife. They were married from 2000-2007.
  • According to Weiland, this was his favorite Stone Temple Pilots ballad.
  • A live version featuring guest vocals by Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington is on the album Family Values 2001. STP was a big influence on Bennington, and he got to know the band when both groups played the Family Values Tour. In 2013, Bennington took over as the group's lead singer.

I saw this song performed live with Bennington guest appearing. It was and still is one of the most beautiful songs.Candice - West Deptford, Nj
