Members of his band The Wildabouts told officers that the frontman had been drinking heavily and taking several types of drugs in the days leading up to his death.
The report says Mohley entered Weiland's tour bus bedroom, and tried to shake him awake. When that failed he removed a pillow from under his head, then realised the singer wasn't breathing. He called drummer Joey Castillo for help before calling for an ambulance. Mohler said on the line: "I think he's dead. He's not moving. He's stiff. He's hard as a rock right now. There's no breath, there's no nothing."
Band members reported that Weiland had been drinking large quantities of vodka and tequila, that he'd been taking cocaine during the previous week and he'd taken MDA in the last two or three days. Read morehere.

Now Cetera has revealed the contents of an email that reads: "As a finale, we can walk onstage together one last time as a group, I'll strap on the bass, and we can do 25 Or 6 To 4 in the key of E. I believe it would make for one fantastic Hall of Fame moment and satisfy those who have always wanted some sort of reunion.
"In the end, this should go a long way towards healing old wounds and showing solidarity on that night. At least I hope so!" Read morehere.
Kerns admits he and the other members of the Conspirators had to keep quiet about the news, even though they'd known for many months. He says in his blog: "That thing that everyone had wished for but never thought possible was quietly - and not so quietly - cooking under our very noses. To be this close to a history of rock'n'roll moment has been nothing short of incredible.
"As Slash's bro I think this is a very exciting and important chapter for him. I suppose him wholeheartedly to dive into this experience. How it affects me really isn't the point - this thing is bigger than all of us. I think it's a healthy thing for the individuals involved as well as the great gift they are giving to the world. I accept that gift thankfully." Read morehere.
Roth's planned reunion with the lineup from his debut solo album Eat 'Em And Smile was set to take place in Hollywood last November, but was pulled at the last minute on safety grounds as the venue was deemed to be overcrowded.
Bassist Sheehan was due to perform with vocalist Roth, guitarist Steve Vai and drummer Greg Bissonette and keyboardist Brett Tuggle - as well as Steel Panther vocalist Michael Starr, who they had tapped up to take part while they waited to see if Roth would show.
When news that Roth would appear broke, the venue quickly filled and the fire marshall stepped in to shut the event down. In the days after the cancellation, The Winery Dogs and Mr Big bassist Sheehan said it would happen sooner or later.
Now he says that although the various members are willing to play together for the first time in 30 years, there are no plan as it stands. Sheehan tells The Double Stop Podcast: "There is no actual plan, but there is a willingness. I would sure love to play with him, and so would Steve, Gregg and Brett. Hopefully it will happen."
Sheehan has also given more detail on the abandoned show, saying the band were less than 60 seconds away from pulling back the curtain and going on stage. Read more and listen to the full interviewhere.
The petition asks that the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) name one of them "Lemmium," after the late-bassist and singer. Wright states, "Heavy rock lost its most iconic figure over Christmas with the sudden and unexpected death of Ian 'Lemmy' Kilmister. Lemmy was a force of nature and the very essence of heavy metal. We believe it is fitting that the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry recommend that one of the four new discovered Heavy Metals in the Periodic table is named Lemmium. An astrological object (a star) has been named Lemmy to meet the IUPAC naming recommendations."
The IUPAC has rules when it comes to naming elements. They are named after "a mythological concept, a mineral, a place or country, a property or a scientist." In the statement above, Wright explains that Lemmy has a star named after him and therefore meets the qualifications to have a true heavy metal as a namesake. Read morehere.
Producer Tony Visconti recently said the follow-up to 2013's The Next Day was a deliberate departure, adding: "We were listening to a lot of Kendrick Lamar. We wound up with nothing like that - but we loved the fact Kendrick was so open-minded.

It's the follow-up to 2013's Generation Nothing and the first since 1993's Hanging In The Balance to feature vocalist Mike Howe. He returned to the fold last year, replacing Ronny Munroe.
Guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof says: "Sometimes I still can't believe it myself. No one would have ever thought Mike would return after his departure almost two decades ago."
Howe adds: "At first I struggled with the decision to come back, but after hearing the riffs that Kurdt was writing, I just couldn't resist. The music called to me and I wanted to be part of it." Watch the videohere.

In a new interview with Alternative Press, frontman Ronnie Radke explains that they'll be more focused on "feeling" than sonics on the new album expected this year.
"It's a huge left turn. It sounds like nothing we've ever done. Every song is very vibey, There's more feeling in it instead of a lot of metal. We're trying to make the sound that we've never done before. We're challenging ourselves now more than we ever have in the weirdest ways possible, because you would think writing the craziest solo or riffs would be the challenging part. But the challenging part is trying to stick to a theme and not go all over the place like we would normally do." Read morehere.

"The video is a deliberately stark introduction of the new line up, complete with new vocalist Hollis," say the band. "We didn't want anything flash, and preferred to let the music be the main focus. It's raw, it's loud and sounds like the weekend.
"This is the sound of partying, sex, trouble, fun, hangovers and extreme behaviour of all persuasions, take from that what you will. We're bringing rock'n'roll back in 2016, and you better believe we mean that 100%."

"Knowing we hit no.9 on Billboard with Reincarnate put us in an upward trajectory. This new record has to be better than Reincarnate, which, to me, is going to be a really hard thing to accomplish considering I absolutely love Reincarnate."
He continues: "There's a lot of pressure to try to top everything we've ever done before and write the best record of our career." Read morehere.
Bandleader Michael League says: "The Family Dinner concept came out of our desire, as a band, to work with vocalists and composers whom we greatly admire.
"It began as an after-hours concert series on Friday nights in New York City. After about a year of performances with many artists, we recorded the first Family Dinner album with eight guests in Roanoke, Virginia, at the Jefferson Center for the Performing Arts."
He adds: "In Volume Two, we changed the setting to New Orleans, Louisiana - in the thick of Mardi Gras - in order to support The Roots of Music foundation, which empowers the youth of the city through music education, academic support, and mentorship while preserving and promoting the unique cultural and musical heritage of jazz's birthplace. We also changed the format of our collaborations by not only inviting guest vocalists, but guest instrumentalists as well."
The band have also issued a trailer for the album. View ithere.
