Scott Weiland, the charismatic rock vocalist who first gained fame with 1990s rock band Stone Temple Pilots, has died, according to his wife.
The Grammy-winning singer, 48, who struggled with addiction, earned post-Pilots success with the platinum-selling supergroup Velvet Revolver. His cause of death was not immediately available.
His wife, Jamie Weiland, a photographer, confirmed his death to The Times in a brief conversation.
"I can't deal with this right now," she said, sobbing. "It's true.”
Best quote of all time by Scott Weiland, "Let's go suck cock..." Not sure if i would be incensed at a statement like that coming from having to pay for a meet and greet with that guy. A real loss for the rock community.
One of my favorite bands from back in the day... RIP Scott
somewhere on related 12160 post, I commented on how god awful these guys looked in person when I worked backstage for their shows. 100lb pasty white junkies - a true shame,
I thought he had been sober for some time but unfortunately, once an addict, always an addict. The rock-n-roll life style isn't very conducive to staying sober. It looks like his inner demons resurfaced and it killed him :(
whatta goaddamn waste......same goes for Layne Staley...... morons got it all and never realize it
