Kurt Cobain Asked Scott Weiland Why He Ripped Him Off


Former Mudhoney manager Bob Whittaker told a story about late Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland meeting Kurt Cobain backstage at Stone Temple Pilots’ show at Seattle Arena on July 8, 1993.

“I remember in Seattle – Butthole Surfers opened for them? We were back stage to say hi to the band after the show = Gibby , King Coffee ETC – I was goofing around with Kurt – he jumped on my back and I took him into the #sonetemplepilots dressingroom. Security was going to toss us out – but Scott saw Kurt and rescued us.

I set Kurt down then Scott and Kurt talked at the deli tray table – a bit awkward at first – Kurt said ‘people tell me you sound like #Nirvana . You must owe me some publishing money then.’ Scott didn’t miss a beat and pulled out a crumpled sweaty $1 bill from his pocket and gave it to Kurt. Kurt took it, We all laughed and left. It was fun funny and cute. ❤️ #inventinggrunge ✔️ Life is short – everyone be nice and do good work while we are here -B”

Scott Weiland’s former solo band guitarist Doug Grean told Appetite for Distortion a few months ago that Scott Weiland went to the Exodus rehab facility after Kurt Cobain died. Exodus is the rehab facility where Cobain infamously jumped the wall in April 1994 before return to Seattle and dying by suicide a few days later.

“I’m a drug addict, I’m a sober drug addict. I went to the rehab that Scott met my brother in a year before. It’s also the same rehab where Kurt Cobain jumped the wall and a few days later killed himself. It was a famous rock star rehab, but it wasn’t fancy, it was really dirty.”
