Scott Weiland Denies Heroin Rumor And Calls Out Online 'Haters'

(Classic Rock) Scott Weiland has once again denied he's using heroin after a shoddy vocal performance sent the internet rumor mill into overdrive. The former Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver frontman was recently filmed giving a lethargic rendition of STP track Vasoline while on stage with his band Scott Weiland And The Wildabouts in Corpus Christi, USA.

It came soon after he slammed Filter singer Richard Patrick, who said Weiland's fans were his biggest enablers when it came to drug abuse. And after the footage from the Corpus Christi show surfaced online, fans speculated that Weiland was once again in the grip of addiction.

Weiland tells AXS: "As for the show in Corpus Christi that didn't go well; that was due to the fact that my in-ear monitors were out completely. I could not hear myself for the entire set. It's impossible to sound good and be on key if you can't hear yourself… Without those monitors, you can't hear yourself. Not at all."

He also went after people that criticized him online, "For people that are haters, the Internet makes them think that they have a voice, and it makes them think that what they have to say is really important," he said. "There were people on there saying that I was on heroin again. I haven't done heroin in thirteen years." Read more and see the video of the controversial performance here.
