Wildabouts bassist Tommy Black had his first social media activity yesterday since Scott Weiland’s death on December 3rd in Bloomington, Minnesota. Black shared Alternative Nation’s article on Bloomington Deputy Police Chief Mike Hartley announcing that they would not pursue drug charges against him because it was too difficult to prove the drugs belonged to him.
He also shared People’s report on our story, seemingly confirming Hartley’s announcement.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner in Minneapolis reported yesterday that Scott Weiland overdosed on cocaine, methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA; also known as “sally” or “the love drug,” and chemically related to the drug ecstasy) and ethanol. The report also indicates heart disease and asthma were “significant” conditions. The test results also revealed Scott’s “multi-substance dependence” was a factor. TMZ also are reporting that alcohol played a role.
Police also found Xanax, sleeping pills, Viagra, and meds to treat bipolar disorder on the bus — but those drugs did not play a factor in his death.
Wildabouts guitarist Nick Maybury has posted more comments on his bandmate Scott Weiland’s tragic death in the last few days on Twitter in response to mourning fans.
Maybury tweeted, “I miss him too I couldn’t speak for a week in a zone of loss and heartache bummed wel never play music.”
He also said, “Been a tough time indeed – grateful to be apart of something this legendary – what an awesome artist ”
Maybury and Wildabouts drummer Joey Castillo also showed moral support for each other last week on Instagram, with Castillo commenting a tribute post with ‘Love you Bro⚡️⚡️RIP Scotty.’
Maybury responded, ‘Love you too man @theejoeyc can barley talk.’
