Scott Weiland, former lead singer of the rock bands Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, died while on tour with his current band, Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts. He was 48 years old.
According to a post on his Facebook page, Weiland "passed away in his sleep while on a tour stop in Bloomington, Minnesota."
While the specific cause of Weiland's death is unknown, there has been speculation his history of substance abuse could be to blame.
Weiland's most memorable group was likely the 90s alternative rock band Stone Temple Pilots, which sold 13.5 million albums in the U.S.
