R.I.P Scott Weiland

Scott Weiland was a ’90s icon.  Best known as the frontman of Stone Temple Pilots (I actually saw him with STP at Roseland Ballroom way way back in the day) and The Velvet Revolver, he died in his tourbus while on the road with his current band, The Wildabouts.  He was a kick-ASS live performer, and was once quoted as having said he was both a tenacious drug addict AND a tenacious recoverer (something that makes sense to me, maybe because I’ve been a tenacious alcoholic and now consider myself to be a tenacious recoverer).  Best known for songs like Interstate Love Song, Vasoline, Sour Girl, and Fall to Pieces, he was a charasmatic performer, and he will be missed.
