Former Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts bassist Tommy Black was interviewed on a new episode of Ghost Adventures on the Travel Channel. The episode explores ghosts haunting The Viper Room, where Black has worked for 16 years.  Weiland died on December 3, 2015, while on tour with Black and the Wildabouts.

When asked if he believes in spirits, Black was skeptical, but offered examples of things you ‘can’t ignore’ at the Viper Room.

“I’m not totally totally into that, but there’s definitely things that you can’t ignore that happen here.”

“Downstairs has got a different feeling than upstairs, upstairs has a playful feeling for me. I’ve seen a glass fly from the bar onto a mat. I’ve seen people drop in the same spot 16 or 17 times. When you’re facing the bar, the main bar, 3/4 of the way to the left.

They faint, pass out, or their knees will buckle. You can ask anyone who has ever worked here. It’s not over serving. I would check that area if I were you.”

He was then asked about going to the third floor.

“No, and I was going to say you should check that out.”

“I don’t want to go back there. The place definitely can change you.”
