Stone Temple Pilots & Velvet Revolver Write To Scott Weiland In Heaven


Velvet Revolver members Slash, Duff McKagan, and Matt Sorum and Stone Temple Pilots have written touching messages to Scott Weiland in Heaven on the 3-year anniversary of his death.

Scott Weiland’s widow Jamie also posted a photo, writing, “Three years.”

Stone Temple Pilots posted on Twitter, “Scott, We think of you always and miss you even more. We send our love and know you are looking down at all who love you.”

STP bassist Robert DeLeo posted on Instagram, “Rest easy my Brother…”

Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum wrote on Instagram, “Remembering Scott Weiland today December 3rd he left the planet. Thank you for all you left us and your artistry. 1967-2015.”

Duff McKagan tweeted, “Rest In Peace Scott W…..”

Slash posted on Instagram, “RIP Scott Weiland.”

Former MTV host Matt Pinfield wrote on Instagram, “3 years ago today we lost a friend and one of the best frontmen in rock-Scott Weiland. This picture was taken when I did the interview to launch his autobiography. 500 people showed up at the Barnes and Noble at NYC’s Union Square location. The day he died I did a 4 hour live broadcast on SiriusXM Lithium and took phone calls from his broken-hearted fans. It was a sad day.”

Pinfield interviewed Matt Sorum on that broadcast, and Sorum cried on air mourning his late bandmate.

“I don’t know how I felt initially. I can’t say it was a shock, but it was definitely … I wasn’t expecting it because I felt like Scott was gonna be here hopefully longer than this,” Sorum said, describing his reaction to first hearing the news of Weiland’s passing.

“When I started to kind of process the feelings — I mean, people know that, in the end, obviously we had our differences and the band split up. But the wave of emotions that you feel is more like a family member. It’s like if you had a family member that maybe you didn’t get along with great, but you still love them. That’s the feeling,” he explained.
