Stone Temple Pilots honour late singer Scott Weiland in tribute video

December 22, 2015

Scott Weiland’s former band Stone Temple Pilots have honoured him in a tribute video.

Weiland was found dead on his tour bus in Minnesota on December 3, with his cause of death drug-related.

Weiland parted ways with the group in 2013, being replaced by Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington (who has since left the group) — now the three other founding members Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz – have uploaded a tribute video in which they focus on Weiland’s songwriting in their song ‘Atlanta’. Watch the video:

Following Weiland’s death, his former bandmates posted an open letter, saying: “You were gifted beyond words, Scott. Part of that gift was part of your curse. With deep sorrow for you and your family, we are saddened to see you go.”

Weiland’s funeral took place at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on December 10 and was attended by members of Stone Temple Pilots and the singer’s other former band Velvet Revolver.
