SCOTT WEILAND APOLOGIZES FOR BEHAVIOUR AT FAN MEET-AND-GREET
Scott Weiland has apologized via his Facebook page to fans for his rude behavior at a recent meet-and-greet in Boston.
Weiland wrote, “I would like to make a sincere apology to the fans that were at the meet and greet in Boston. I’m embarrassed by my behavior and some of the things that I said. Fans don’t deserve that. Without our fans and supporters, we would not be able to do what we’re doing. I put my all into the show that night and honestly was just beyond exhausted . . . either way, I acted like a total a****le and for that I’m truly sorry.”
Fans of Weiland wrote online that they were left “disgusted” and “disappointed” after the former Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver singer held a VIP meet-and-greet session at the Brighton Music Hall in Boston, Massachusetts. Three different fans posted their descriptions of the event at a Stone Temple Pilots fan forum, including one fan who claimed that Weiland said to him, “Let’s suck a d**k!”
One fan wrote that when it was his turn to meet Weiland and take a picture with him, “Scott didn’t even look at me when I was talking to him, he put his arm around me and literally said ‘Lets get this s**t done with.'”
- Another fan, to whom Weiland allegedly uttered ‘Let’s suck a d**k,’ said that the singer was “definitely drunk and ready to get outta there.”
- Fans were charged $150 for the brief chance to meet and take a photo with the vocalist.
- Scott Weiland and his band the Walkabouts will release their new album, Blaster, on March 31st. Weiland and company’s next U.S. date is the Welcome To Rockville festival on April 25th in Jacksonville, Florida.
