Mark Lanegan recorded song with Scott Weiland
pieceofpie6661 on Stone Temple Pilots forum revealed how in Lanegan’s memoir that just released, it was mentioned that he ran into Scott around 1995/1996 at a Buprenex clinic in LA.
It was noted that he “sang on one of their records that was never released.”
The fan stated: “Now obviously STP released Tiny Music and as far as we know there are no b-sides (outside of talk show demos), so given the timeline and chemical circumstances lol I’d have to say Lanegan probably was talking about the Magnificent Bastards.”
While another user Sklashboombash, said: “I don’t know about that, but in one of the Doug videos, as he was discussing Scott working with Limp Bizkit, he said Scott “did it all the time”. He would write melodies for other bands/singers to sing – sometimes uncredited.”
Lanegan was best known for his works as the lead singer of the grunge band Screaming Trees as well as a member of Queens of the Stone Age and The Gutter Twins.
His death was revealed in a Twitter statement on Tuesday (February 22nd) that said: “Our beloved friend Mark Lanegan passed away this morning at his home in Killarney, Ireland.”
“A beloved singer, songwriter, author, and musician he was 57 and is survived by his wife Shelley. No other information is available at this time. We ask Please respect the family privacy,” it continued.
