    Jeff, you rock! I’m so disappointed that you came second on X. I seen you joined a band in 18. You, my friend, need to hire your band because it’s you that is the star! Any record label that would turn you down is not worth the contract! When the female judge said you were like a rock and roll Josh Groban, go back and hear Simon say BETTER! Your beyond Bon Jovie, Steven, etc. You are the star of this century in rock and roll. I wish you the best!

      He's not the front man for Stone Temple Pilots.. he's SIC. If there was ANYBODY to bring them back to life, but still giving homage to Scott, it's Jeff Gutt

    I am so happy that he accomplished his dreams as a lead singer in a major band to me it couldn’t happen to a nicer person I’m happy for him and his son. He was concerned about financially keeping his family together well now he doesn’t have to worry anymore.
