It is with great sadness that we report, as do our colleagues at Billboard, that former STP frontman and Velvet Revolver member, Scott Weiland, has died. Details are sketchy at this point as to the cause of death. Weiland, who was plagued for most of his career with substance abuse issues, was only 48 and obviously, no one wanted this man’s career and life to end this early. Weiland was traveling with his current band, the Wildabouts, and the group was scheduled to perform in Minnesota. Weiland was found by his personal manager.
