Scott Weiland Found Dead On Tour Bus

Scott Weiland, former frontman of the U.S. rock band Stone Temple Pilots and hard rockers Velvet Revolver, has died at the age of 48. The singer’s manager, Tom Vitorino, confirmed his death on Thursday night.

TMZ is reporting Weiland‘s body was discovered on his tour bus outside a motel, near the venue where his band Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts were due to play in Minnesota. Weiland had a history of drug problems but it’s unclear right now what caused his death.

In 1995, the singer was convicted of buying crack cocaine and sentenced to probation. He was jailed in 1999 for violating his probation after being convicted of heroin possession in 1998, and four years later, in 2003, sentenced to three years’ probation for drug possession.

Velvet Revolver frequently had to alter its schedules to accommodate Weiland‘s court appearances and spells in rehab and the band’s 2007 release, Libertad, was the last to feature Weiland on vocals. They parted ways with Weiland the following year, blaming the singer’s “erratic behaviour”.

He later returned to the reformed Stone Temple Pilots – but in 2013 they, too, ejected him from the band, claiming he had been “misappropriating” their name to further his solo career.
