“The Drug Culture Of Rock And Roll Isn’t Quite So Prevalent As It Was In The 1990s”

Former STONE TEMPLE PILOTS and VELVET REVOLVER singer Scott Weiland has told Simcoe.com that he quit using drugs 13 years ago and that he hasn’t looked back since.

“When I stopped doing drugs, I knew it was the end of that phase of my life,” he said. “I was miserable. I went and detoxed and I knew from that point on I would never go back to it. It’s not a way to live.”

He added: “The drug culture of rock and roll isn’t quite so prevalent as it was in the 1990s.”

Weiland‘s current band THE WILDABOUTS has had several lineup changes since last year. Weiland fired his longtime guitarist and business partner Doug Grean in early 2014, while drummer Danny Thompson left to focus on his work with the ALAN PARSONS LIVE PROJECT. Meanwhile, guitarist Jeremy Brown stepped up to take a bigger role following Grean‘s dismissal, but Brown‘s sudden passing in March forced the band to hire Nick Maybury.
