    This is truly heartbreaking. Not a total surprise but sad non the less.

    It's sad. Just last month I was watching Jimmy Kimmel's "Mash-up Monday" where he got Joss Stone & The Stone Temple Pilots to perform together. I looked over at my hubby and told him "I know this is just a parody for ratings but STP just isn't the same without Scott." He was STP. That bands music without Weiland's voice just doesn't work for me.

    I don't care to speculate on his death. It's either drug-use or complications due to prolonged drug-use. Either way, it's just sad.



    RIP Scott Weiland...(I've always dreaded the day I'd have to type that)

    Damn.

    Loved him with STP. I was just thinking about them\him yesterday and how great some of that music was.

    Still have "Tiny Music" in my truck.

    DAMN IT. This is not what I wanted to wake up to. It is not surprising but still sucks. I had front row tickets to Stone Temple Pilots a few years back and he was AMAZING. Truly underrated singer. Everyone could see this coming but it still sucks.

    I found out about Scott Weiland passing when I switched on my computer this morning. I gasped audibly and sighed, "Oh, no!"

    How awful. I adored Scott Weiland, both with STP and with Velvet Revolver. That voice.

    Gone too soon.

    Tomorrow, some ale and a listening marathon to honour Scott Weiland.

    Scott was very talented and very sexy! I knew it would end like this. He was one of the better frontmen of my generation. ~I understand heroin too. Ironically, to kick my habit, i moved 900 miles to Minneapolis Minnesota. His ex wife wrote a book that i recommend. No title handy, but she had quite the ride.

    I saw this immediately on my FB feed. I don't watch SNL anymore, but I remember vividly catching one of the nights they were on.

    Like many have said it was a shock but not surprising in hindsight.

    When he was clean, the guy was amazing but damn, there were times when he was screwed up that made you want to cry because you knew how good he could be.

    I only found out about them when I saw the Sour Girl video but after that I was hooked and even followed him to VR and in my opinion, Fall To Pieces is one of the greatest songs ever released, even more so now.

    I hope he will be remembered for his voice but like many before him it will be for his struggles.

    RIP Scott

    I think you are right. You know he was surrounded with people that truly did not care about him, all they wanted to do was party with him. Not the crowd you want to be around when you are battling THAT particular demon. I am a bit surprised he lasted this long. RIP and thanks for some great tunes.

    Man this sucks

    All of my Holy Teenage Trinity- Cobain, Staley and Weiland gone. DRUGS SUCK!

    Been listening to STP all day

    That TMZ audio is shocking

    His wife is adamant he was clean and was doing really well. The others in the band/crew had made a pact to not put any temptation in his way but drugs were found on the bus. There is also stories of him slipping off the wagon and being found with crack so it looks like we'll have to wait on the autopsy to find out what happened.

    If he was clean then it could be another Eddie Guerrero. He had been sober for years when he died but his heart gave out because of what he put it through. This looks to be the same unfortunately.

    Never heard of STP until I saw them listed on The Crow soundtrack "Big Empty."

    Anyone else reloading this page every so often, hoping for more info? I'm listening to STP right now. I am so disappointed that he's gone. It's interesting to see some people saying it was cardiac arrest, that he was clean. Then others are saying it was probably drugs. We're most likely in for another long wait to hear toxicology reports.

    A statement has been released saying that they found cocaine in the room beside him and the the group's bassist Tommy Black has been arrested for possession.

    I saw the news pop up on my phone this morning. My first thought was, "Shame, probably overdosed." The second question was, "Hey, @LADeathTrip's twitter hasn't said anything about it yet."
    I wonder if it was the cocaine, or just the years of heavy drug abuse taking their toll.
    Either way R.I.P. Scott, STP was one of my favorite bands back in the 90's.

    One of my favorite vocalists. Ive been so sad about his passing since learning about it last night. Always hoped he could get it together and stay sober. RIP Scott
    I told my lawyer he's better step it up or we would both end up on an episode of "SNAPPED"

    Scott's ex-wife wrote this.... just plain sad....

    When writing a book years ago, it pained me to sometimes gloss over so much grief and struggle, but I did what I thought was best for Noah and Lucy. I knew they would one day see and feel everything that I'd been trying to shield them from, and that they'd eventually be brave enough to say, "That mess was our father. We loved him, but a deep-rooted mix of love and disappointment made up the majority of our relationship with him."

    WOW!!! I'm speechless. Too many people want to marginalize "rock wives," and make comments without knowing them, but this lady seems like she was his absolute best shot for a clean life and she's to be praised for this article. I hope it resonates with a lot of "rock gods" who are living a pathetic existence, including the dude from his own band who was arrested the day he died. Rock is cool. Drugs are for dopes.

    Incredibly sad about this. Hardly a shock, but still... At least he wasn't alone undiscovered for days like Layne

    I read that also earlier this morning. It sounds like Mm has done a good job of basically raising the kids herself. So dang sad.

    She sure did. I feel badly for the kids, but I'm wondering by what miracle she thought that having children was going to make him straighten up and stop abusing drugs and alcohol. She chose her kids' father, but she did a piss poor job. Another of his wives or ex-wives said that it was impossible for him to have died due to drugs or alcohol because he and his band had a "pact" that none of them would do drugs on the road. She apparently is sticking by this even though one of the band members was arrested the day they found Scott's body because he had cocaine in his "bedroom" on the bus. Scott's room also contained a half dozen or so different prescriptions that did or did not belong to him, weed, meth and cocaine. Sounds like they had a pact alright.

    This made me sad. I grew up with STP and honestly thought he would have ODed a long time ago. But I still loved him in STP and Velvet Revolver and I'm sorry that it was all over too soon.

    I guess they got used to not being in his life, so there was no need to be involved in his death. I wish them all well.
