Scott Weiland's Widow Says He Vowed To Get It Together

(Classic Rock) Scott Weiland promised his wife he'd get on top of his addiction issues in the weeks leading up to his death, she's revealed. The former Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver frontman was found dead in his tour bus earlier this month after taking an accidental overdose. He was 48.

And even though he was struggling with drink and drugs, he was clear on what he had to achieve with his new band, the Wildabouts, if he wanted to get his career back on track.

Widow Jamie Weiland tells Rolling Stone that he'd been drinking heavily "before he left on this tour," adding: "He did tell me, 'I'm going to get it together.'"

She spent a week on the road with him last month and says: "He was just killing it - every night taking it up a notch." Read more here.
