“It’s true.” Weiland was scheduled to perform in Minnesota with his latest group, Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts, when he was found unresponsive on his tour bus around 9 p.m.
Scott Weiland, who has died aged 48, was the lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots, the Californian rock group which found international fame in the 1990s and introduced the “grunge” sound to stadium rock; he later joined three former members of Guns N’ Roses in Velvet Revolver.
Born Scott Kline in 1967, Scott Weiland was a walking rock ‘n’ roll car crash.
He was also jailed in 1999 for violating his probation after being convicted of heroin possession in 1998, and four years later, in 2003, sentenced to three years’ probation for drug possession.
In 1999 the band was side-tracked again when Scott Weiland ended up back in the slammer on drug related charges.
The Stone Temple Pilots are released their fifth album Shangri-La Dee Da in 2001.
In 1989 Weiland formed Stone Temple Pilots in San Diego with the brothers Dean and Robert De Leo, on guitar and bass, and Eric Kretz on drums.
Initially the band was criticised for sounding too like the Seattle-based grunge group Pearl Jam, but Weiland’s brooding voice had an appeal that stretched beyond the dirty guitars and heavy riffs of grunge.Instead of beating each other silly they started jamming together.
