Scott Weiland’s Bandmate Is Making TV Show About ‘Washed Up Rock Star’


Former Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts guitarist Doug Grean posted on Facebook, “I have written and am currently shooting a TV series I call ‘Starman’ Log line –

Washed up and whacky rock star gets cashed around by aliens.

It’s loosely based on my life and the insanity that happened around me when I was in the main stream music business. The rockstar is not supposed to be any one specific but I do use the stuff that happened – repurposed for the new plot or situation – it’s not supposed to be a bio pic or a behind the music. 65% is fiction. And I will let you figure the bits that really happened.

The Alien part I made up: Or did I?

I hope you like it. I’m sure it will piss some people off. But tough shit – this is MY story and I’ll tell it how ever I like.”

He later wrote to a fan in the comments, “Scotts not in this show not really but his spirit is – I know he would have loved it.”

“It has nothing to do with STP. It doesn’t use their. Name likeness – logos or music.”

Grean posted a couple of photos from the shooting of the pilot episode.
