ARMY OF ANYONe.
Take the lead singer of Filter, add the guitarist and bassist from Stone Temple Pilots and bring in one of the leading session drummers around and what do you have? Those are the ingredients that went into forming Army of Anyone, which features vocalist Richard Patrick, Stone Temple Pilot founding members Dean and Robert DeLeo and seasoned drummer Ray Luzier. Between the years 1994-2002, Richard and Robert and Dean have shared many a stage and have crossed many a path. Each of them being fans of the others’ work, the guys would jam and hang out at any given opportunity. The foundation for the group was laid when Patrick enlisted the DeLeos to help him co-write a song for the Filter album he was working on at the time. The result, “A Better Place,” turned out to be prophetic, and the beginning of something new. Within a couple of days, the three musicians decided they would take this working relationship to the next level, and Army of Anyone was born.
