New Stone Temple Pilots frontman Jeff Gutt is revealing the one Scott Weiland-era song that he will not sing in concert. In a recent interview, Gutt confessed he had a "particular thing" about the song "Sour Girl" from the band's 1999 album "Number Four." He went on to explain that the song is off limits for him because he feels it was written as a "personal message."
