My entire Facebook feed this morning is friends and collegues paying tribute to enigmatic vocalist Scott Weiland, who died last night, found in his bus in cardiac arrest. Rockers far and wide have been paying tribute to Weiland this afternoon. Here is a roundup of some of them…
Velvet Revolver collectively have released this statement:
"We are deeply saddened to learn of the loss of our old friend and bandmate, Scott Weiland. We experienced a good chunk of life with Scott, and even in his darkest times, we all had hope and love for him. His artistry will live on, of that there is no doubt.
"Deepest condolences and sadness are for his children, Noah and Lucy.
"We all travelled around this world together on tour; our band, wives, and kids… and we grew to a big family that still remains to this day. It's just so sad and brutal from any perspective.
"Rest in peace, Scott."

Scott Weiland lost his brother, & his guitarist last year, & now he died? Talk about 'when it rains it pours.' Jesus, take him with you God.

RIP Scott Weiland. I will always remember listening to "Core" in my Walkman on the high school bus. Influential music. You will be missed.
