Throwback Thursday: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1990 Concert Tour ‘Coming Out of Our Shells’ And Guest Appearance on Oprah [Video]

Some are saying the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is terrible. However, is it worse than that one time the Ninja Turtles went on a rock concert tour, made an album sponsored by Pizza Hut, then went on Oprah to promote it?

Scott Weiland hasn't been exactly silent since his split with Stone Temple Pilots, and he doesn't seem to be in regular communication with them, either.

In a recent interview, he was asked about a reunion with STP (of course), and he said he'd heard they were having a "cattle call" for a new singer, and maybe he should join the cattle call.
