Two weeks ago, Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver was found dead on a tour bus in Minnesota. Scott Weiland’s wife Jamie Weiland said at the time that he was sober for a while, but cops found coke in his bedroom on the bus. The bassist for Scott’s band, The Wildabouts, was also arrested for possessing coke. He was released the next day. The Associated Press says that the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office announced today that Scott Weiland’s death was accidental and he died of a mixture of the bad shit and booze. Scott also had cardiovascular disease and asthma.
TMZ says that specifically, 48-year-old Scott filled his body with coke, alcohol and Ecstasy before he died and those three things carried him to the afterworld where he started a 90s quartet singing group with Kurt Cobain, Shannon Hoon and Layne Staley. They call themselves The Chained Melon Pilots of Nirvana.
And like I do every time I read news about Scott Weiland, I’m off to listen to my 90s grunge playlist while wishing that I still had the bootleg MAROON Docs my mom bought me for Christmas at the swap meet.
