RIP Scott Weiland…


It’s been reported that Scott Weiland died in his tour bus last night.  He was just 48.

The fact that Scott was an addict of epic proportions is well documented.  Reports are slow to blame a drug overdose but folks, this doesn’t take a rocket scientist to put two and two together.

Scott, and previously the Stone Temple Pilots, were my favorite musicians of all time.  Ironically, I bought a tee-shirt at his last tour that said, “Not dead and not for sale”, a line from a song on the Pilot’s third album (Trippin’ on a Hole in a Paper Heart, from Tiny Music…  Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop).

Addiction is out there kicking ass and it doesn’t care how wealthy or poor we are.

Too bad, that.  Rest in Peace… but better you than me.

      Now all I have to do is get a hold of the other members of STP and let them know I’m available… I can do Scott Weiland almost as good as he can… Hmmm….
