Late Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland had a short lived supergroup in the late 90’s called The Wondergirls, and a low quality version of “Massive Heart Attack” leaked back in 2016, but now a high quality official version has finally surfaced. The track also features Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen, former Jane’s Addiction and Porno for Pyros bassist Martyn LeNoble, Ashley Hamilton, Jay Gordon, Chris Lloyd, Shannon Leto, and Matt Sorum or Kelly Scott.
Mike Foley made a post on Facebook last year regarding Scott Weiland’s last unreleased music with the Wondergirls.
“Yes a year later I’m still pushing to get the original recordings from this album remixed & released. I just made some Instagram clips of my own with the song because I don’t own this video yet. While Scott is gone, both Ash Hamilton & Jay Gordon are for the release. It’s far more complicated than it has to be. It seems the hardest part is getting the person in possession of the reels to let us do what should’ve been done long ago. But she’s not interested in Scott’s legacy. You would think that her love of his money would be inspiration enough but a year later, & that’s since just my involvement in it, this person has yet to respond to something, when completed, would benefit everyone, including her & more importantly his children. I’ll leave it at that. Enjoy!”
Foley also wrote about the Wondergirls in November 2017 on Instagram, “I accidentally discovered Wondergirls a year ago. I spoke to Jay in January at the Whisky about it & he sent me to Ashley, who was excited at the idea of converting the original reels directly to mp3 (no CD) remix & update the tracks.
Jay said he’d produce & we’d release this treasure w/proceeds going to Scott’s kids, but Mary has the reels & I don’t know what will happen now, Ash had his daughter a few months ago & we haven’t spoken of it in months. I haven’t given up. Ash used Wondergirls for Iron Man 3 in 2013 & Jay produced that. I still hope we’ll eventually release what may be the only music left from Scott no one has heard.”
It’s important to note that Mary Weiland has not made any statements regarding unreleased Wondergirls music, so this is just coming from Foley, Hamilton, and Gordon’s perspective.
