Scott Weiland Appeared To Be In A Bad Way At Rock On The Range
Milas watched Scott Weiland And The Wildabouts' "shambolic" performance at the festival in Ohio on May 16 and interviewed him after he came off stage. He says the experience left him feeling very sorry for the clearly deeply troubled singer.
Weiland was found dead on his tour bus in Bloomington, Minnesota, on Thursday night. The cause of death has yet to be confirmed. He was 48. The Rock On The Range appearance came just weeks after a video of Weiland and his band performing Stone Temple Pilots classic Vasoline went viral on account of the vocalist's disheveled appearance and wayward singing.
Milas tells TeamRock Radio: "It was a strange experience, to put things mildly. It had come not long after a video went viral from a show in Texas where he seemed confused and didn't quite know where he was. In Texas, they did a Wildabouts song and he began to sing something by STP and it was quite clear then that he had some troubles.
"So I was surprised that he then made that festival appearance, and shambolic is probably being generous." During his interview with Weiland, Milas says it was obvious the frontman was in a bad way. Read more here.
