Scott Weiland, best known as the lead singer for Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, passed away at the age of 48 in his sleep while on a tour stop in Bloomington, Minnesota with his band. It was no real secret that Scott Weiland was plagued with his own personal, self-afflicting demons of drug addiction and spent much of his career in and out of drug and alcohol rehabs. Still, he had an incredibly wonderful and very distinctive voice. I will miss him.
Back in October of 2009, hubby and I had gotten the chance to see Stone Temple Pilots perform live at the Sovereign Performing Arts Center in our home town of Reading, PA.
The following pics were taken the night of the concert we attended by our local newspaper, the Reading Eagle-Times.
