Newswire: Stone Temple Pilots address Scott Weiland’s death
In the wake of Scott Weiland’s death yesterday, his former band Stone Temple Pilots has posted a statement to its Facebook page. While Weiland was currently on tour with his new band The Wildabouts, both he and the band achieved their greatest success when he was still a member of the group. Despite several reunions over the years, Weiland’s relationship with the other members of the group was often contentious and rocky, with numerous public fallings-out and accusations of bad behavior flying between them. In light of such acrimony, it’s nice to see this short-but-touching tribute to the man who gave voice to Stone Temple Pilots’ music for so many years.
