Velvet Revolver have released the following statement:
We are deeply saddened to learn of the loss of our old friend and bandmate, Scott Weiland. We experience a good chunk of life with Scott, and even in his darkest times, we all had hope and love for him. His artistry will live on, of that, there is no doubt.
Deepest condolences and sadness are for his children, Noah and Lucy. We all travelled around this world together on tour; our band, wives, and kids…and we grew to a big family that still remains to this day.
It’s just so sad and brutal from any perspective.
Rest in peace Scott.
Slash, Duff, Matt, and Dave
I love this pic. It was from the photo shoot we did for our first record. It hangs on the wall of my house to always remember when things were at their best. My life was changed forever then, and is changed once again today. Thank you God for my life and thank you Scott Weiland for being a huge part of my life. Fly on SW. #ScottWeiland #stoneyemplepilots #velvetrevolver @slash @officialduffmckagan @bigdrums
