    Saw STP live in concert before they were big. They put on a hell of a show and I was a fan from there on. RIP Scott

    A sad and untimely loss of an enormous talent.

    I hope you can rest now, Scott.

    Farewell, Elegant Bachelor: Scott Weiland, RIP

    The thing about being a rock star in the ’90s is you had to act like you hated being a rock star, and this is where Scott Weiland made his first mistake. As frontman for Stone Temple Pilots, whose 1992 debut Core was an instant Columbia House Hall of Famer, he swaggered and sashayed and preened and performed in an era when all that ***** was deeply, fatally uncool. Sure, he did plenty of brooding—it was the ’90s, we all did—but there was a weird aroused undertone. He turned uncoolness into both a high and a dark art. He slithered while pretty much everyone else just sulked.

    You said it best.

    Scott was a phenomenal vocalist, musician, and song writer. I'm very sad that he passed away.

    I'm also freaked out, and I want to share why.

    A couple of months ago I started thinking about Scott a lot.
    I wanted to read his ex wife, Mary Forsberg Weiland's book
    "Fall to Pieces". She's in the video of that song too. I had a nearby library send it to my library, and so for weeks reading it I thought about Scott.

    I JUST RETURNED THE BOOK THIS WEEK. Then, I started catching some of his old songs on the radio. Days later...

    Weird, huh. I guess sometimes I tune into something that is about to happen. I was hoping it'd be some great new music releases.

    Fly free and at peace, dear Scott.

    His first wife Janina was a friend of mine.
    He hung out with us some in a bar in Sierra Madre and at a friends house in that town.
    Always a gentleman.

    Stone Temple Pilots were a big part of the soundtrack of my life in the 90's. It breaks my heart to see him go so young...a true rock star and his music evokes happy memories of a more carefree and fun decade for me. RIP Mr. Weiland.

    Cocaine found on the tour bus. Cocaine increases risk of cardiac death.

    "During a subsequent search, police located a small quantity of a controlled substance they determined to be cocaine. "

    My bro met him, unfortunately during a drug related encounter. Purple album has been on repeat. Huge influence for me in the 90's, and still today. Hugs to his wife and kiddos.
    They heard me singing, and they told me to stop
