Scott Weiland Not Dead and Telling All
In the early 1990s, Stone Temple Pilots — not U2, not Nirvana, not Pearl Jam — was the hottest band in the world. STP toppled such mega-bands as Aerosmith and Guns N' Roses on MTV and the Billboard charts. Lead singer Scott Weiland became an iconic front man in the tradition of Mick Jagger, David Bowie, and Robert Plant.
Then, when STP imploded, it was Weiland who emerged as the emblem of rock star excess, with his well-publicized drug busts and trips to rehab. Weiland has since made a series of stunning comebacks, fronting the supergroup Velvet Revolver, releasing solo work, and, most recently, reuniting with Stone Temple Pilots. After kicking a 13-year addiction to drugs almost a decade ago, he has prevailed as a loving, dedicated father, as well as a business-savvy artist whose well of creativity is far from empty. more on this story
