Stone Temple Pilots Release Scott Weiland Musical Tribute Video
The band have issued a video from the studio discussing Weiland's talent while playing the master tape of "Atlanta", the final track on their 1999 album "No. 4."
"Dean and Eric and I wanted to honor Scott, and we thought the best way to do that would be musically," explains bassist Robert DeLeo. "We chose this song because we feel it represents one of the times in our career that Scott was truly at his best.
"When you hear this track, we hope to share in the same feeling and spirit each of us had while recording it. The four of us, in a room, capturing a moment in time on tape. So enjoy this song and the depth of this brilliant performance from Scott."
"Together, let's honor Scott…Memories of Candles and Incense. Having the opportunity to listen to these tracks individually reveal the beauty of Scott's lyrical and melodic gift. This is one of the many musical moments we shared together. It is in this way we would like to remember Scott."
Weiland was found dead on his tour bus in Bloomington while on the road with his band The Wildabouts. His passing has been ruled an accidental overdose by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, who found cocaine, ethanol and methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA) in his system during an autopsy.
