Scott Weiland Caricature, illustrated here on April 29, 1994, age 27 during the recording of the second Stone Temple Pilot’s album “Purple”.
Weiland was an American musician, singer and songwriter. During a career spanning three decades, Weiland was best known as the lead singer of the band Stone Temple Pilots from 1989 to 2002 and 2008 to 2013, making six records with them. He was also lead vocalist of supergroup Velvet Revolver from 2003 to 2008, recording two albums, and he recorded one album with another supergroup, Art of Anarchy. He also established himself as a solo artist, releasing three studio albums, two cover albums, and collaborations with several other musicians throughout his career.
Stone Temple Pilots: In 1986 Weiland met bassist Robert DeLeo at a Black Flag concert in Long Beach, California. Weiland’s childhood friends Corey Hicock and David Allin rounded out the group, both of whom would soon be replaced by Eric Kretz and DeLeo’s brother Dean. They took the name Stone Temple Pilots because of their fondness for the initials “STP.”
In 2002, former Guns N’ Roses members – guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Matt Sorum – as well as former Wasted Youth guitarist Dave Kushner were looking for a singer to help form a new band. When Stone Temple Pilots disbanded in 2003, the band sent Weiland new music, which he took into his studio and added vocals. This music eventually became the song “Set Me Free.”
The group needed a name, so Slash suggested “Revolver” to the band, Weiland suggested ‘Black Velvet’ Revolver, liking the idea of “something intimate like velvet juxtaposed with something deadly like a gun.” They eventually arrived at Velvet Revolver.
Velvet Revolver’s debut album Contraband was released in June 2004 to much success. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and has sold over three million copies worldwide to date. Two of the album’s songs, “Slither” and “Fall to Pieces,” reached number one on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. The song “Slither” also won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance with Vocal in 2005, an award Weiland had won previously with STP for the song “Plush” in 1994.
Weiland’s top hits: “Plush”, “Interstate Love Song”, “Big Bang Baby”, “Barbarella”, “Jindalee Jindalie”, “Days Of The Week”, “Set Me Free”, “She Builds Quick Machines”, “Winter Wonderland” and “Modzilla”.
In 1995, Weiland was convicted of buying crack cocaine. Weiland revealed in 2001 he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
It has also been revealed that Weiland had hepatitis C, which he may have acquired from intravenous drug use.
Weiland was found dead on his tour bus on December 3, 2015, in Bloomington, Minnesota, while on tour with the Wildabouts.
The medical examiner later determined it to be an accidental overdose of cocaine, alcohol, and methylenedioxyamphetamine.
Weiland was 48.
