RIP Scott Weiland


This is the image I think of when I picture Scott Weiland.

I don’t have any great insists on Scott Weiland; he was reputedly not an easy person to work with, but you can’t deny that he was the perfect front man.  Weiland wasn’t just a pretty face – that dude could blow.  I liked Stone Temple Pilots’ Core, but man, Purple really blew my teenage hair back.  None of his contemporaries wrote lyrics like Weiland.  After that, I was ready and waiting to eat up Tiny Music with a spoon.

But forty-eight years old, man.  Forty-eight!  That’s just too young to go.  But, we should all be so lucky to accomplish what Weiland did in his short life.  Truly an amazing talent has been lost.
