RIP Scott Weiland

Core was the first cd my pops ever bought me. RIP Scott. Fuckin’ drag. I still respect dude for how Purple made all the indie rockers begrudgingly admit that STP was fuckin’ cool. The story is developing and I think TMZ Broke it. I saw it first on Mitchell Sunderland‘s Twitter feed.

Really glad I haven’t done heroin since 1998, if that’s what the cause was…though I feel morbid speculating. Hope he went out smellin’ like a rose and is dancin’ like a maniac up to the pearly gates.

According to a recent interview with former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash, Scott Weiland is not in Stone Temple Pilots in anymore. Slash states that the reason Weiland has left STP is that he wants to rejoin Velvet Revolver, which also features Slash and two other former members of Guns N’ Roses (Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum). Slash clarifies:

“That’s because he got fired from STP. I think, all things considered, because these things always catch me by surprise, too, because I only find out about it through the media. I’m on the road in another country and I start hearing all this stuff, so I inquire within, and that’s what I was told.”

You can watch the interview here.

If confirmed, there is currently no indication whether Weiland’s departure from STP will affect the making of their next album or result in another break up. As for Velvet Revolver, they have been on a semi-hiatus since Weiland was fired from the band in 2008, but never found a permanent replacement for him.

Stone Temple Pilots to begin work on next album soon

Posted by Metal Dude on Sunday, November 6, 2011 at 8:24 AM (PST)

Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland was recently interviewed by, where he reveals that the band is about to prepare new material for their next album. He explains,

“They usually start before me, just getting some rough ideas together and then putting rough ideas down on ProTools with no lyrics and no melody. And then I start listening to it and see if it’s just a straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll record or if it’s more of a concept album like ‘Shangri-La Dee Da’ was. Once we decide that, it should go full speed ahead.”

The new album will be the follow-up to last year’s self-titled reunion album, which marked the band’s first after a 9 year absence.
