No matter what sorta things were said about his personal life lately, no matter what this guy was upto in his personal life, Scott's leaving is extremely painful for me. One of the earliest voices I heard in the 90s while growing up was Weiland's. Still cannot believe I woke up to this news. It is very very sad. It was just too soon. I hope he finds peace. Its heartbreaking.

Death is not the end. The spark of life that inhabited his flesh will go on eternal. Goodbye Scott weiland, your journey through life continues. It continues becuase everything around us has always been and will always be. The man we know as Scott may be dead.. but who he was will go on forever.
We've dun it. A machine that can feel the whole spectrum of human emotion, sh*ty, crappy, sad, horny and hungry ..it can feel it all!
Drugs and alcohol have ruined so many musicians lives. I wish they would learn from those that came before them that it's not something to play with. But when you are young and think you are the shit because you are a rock star you don't listen or remember that is isn't.
Scott Weiland's bandmate Tommy Black has been arrested for possession of cocaine on the tour bus where Scott died.
Police say they found a small quantity of a suspected controlled substance that field tested positive as cocaine in the bedroom where Scott was found.
They also found another small amount of the same substance in an area of the bus occupied by Black ... who is a guitarist for Scott Weiland and The Wildabouts.
Black was arrested and booked for 5th degree felony possession of drugs.
As we reported, several legendary musicians were in touch with each other 4 days before Scott died, saying he was back on drugs ... specifically crack cocaine.
Jamie Weiland tells us her husband had not been doing any drugs for years ... although she admits he has been drinking socially.
Our sources say drugs were found on the bus, but Jamie insists they were not Scott's.
Jamie says there was a pact among the band not to do drugs ... at the very least that pact seems to have been broken by someone on the bus.
As we reported, several prominent musicians have told us they were alarmed over the last 4 days, saying Scott had been deep into crack cocaine ... something Jamie vehemently denies.
Jamie, who says she was touring with the group but left them a week ago, says, "He [Scott] was the best he has ever been."
Here is a song from the last time I worked with Scott at Sturgis 2010. No one has ever seen this footage before, as the show never came out. I remember that day like it was yesterday. Scott spent the entire day on his bus and there was something obviously off. I was scared for his well being and whether or not he would even be able to do the show. We were all concerned about Scott. However, once showtime hit- Bam- he was on fire and the rock star we all knew. One of the best performers ever. I and the pleasure of working with him several times over my career, beginning all the way back in 1991. Addiction is a really powerful thing and I hope if anybody knows someone struggling they will do something to get them help. Unfortunately some are sicker than others and the pain they are experiencing is just too tough to deal with. RIP Scott- hope you are in a happy place. The music world will not be the same without you.
