Small Tribute to Scott Weiland

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the guitarist, Slash, who used to be in a band with Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots fame.

I’ve seen Scott perform in 4 different occasions when he was with Velvet Revolver. He always put on a spectacular show as the front man of the band. While I was aimlessly surfing the internet just now(last night) I stumbled upon the news of his passing.

It’s sad but he’s touched more lives than a typical average human being will ever. Stone Temple Pilots created some great songs. I was listening to them today around noon time in my car unbeknownst of Scott’s death. It was always one of my go to bands for all around good music.

    Hell yeah. I just watched their unplugged performance on YouTube. Scott Weiland helped me with my 1990s. My friend and I adopted a phrase of his, as a joke…funny because it was true for us: “too much trippin and my soul’s worn thin”

    His music was on a lot around us, in them 1990s… we blasted it and sang it.

    So sad and I have fond memories of seeing him in Atlantic City when he was with VR. He died in his sleep and I wish people would stop thinking it was drug related. He does have a family and teenage children who really don’t need to hear those who jump to conclusions. He was a father, son, brother and a celebrity that has been abused by the Press for most of his career. My husband and I were true fans as we grieve for the loss of our favorite singer. May his soul be singing with G-d and the angels.

      I didn’t think his death was due to any type of drug overdose but the first thing I thought was his prolonged substance abuse issues were probably a major contributor to his death.

      He always lit up the stage with his moves and taste in fashion. The guy was freaking awesome.
