Scott Weiland, former lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots, found dead at 48

Scott Weiland, the former frontman for rock bands Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, had died, according to reports.

Via TMZ:

Weiland was on tour with his band Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts … they were supposed to play the Medina Ballroom tonight, but the show was cancelled.

A source connected to the band tells us Scott was found Thursday night on the bus around 9 PM — presumably, shortly before the band was to go on.

The former lead singer for Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver famously battled substance abuse for years. It’s unclear right now what caused his death.

More, from The L.A. Times:

Jamie Weiland, a photographer, confirmed the news of his death to The Times in a brief conversation.

“I can’t deal with this right now,” she said, sobbing. “It’s true.”

The couple met in 2011, when she photographed one of his music video shoots. They married in June 2013.
