Scott Weiland’s former band the Stone Temple Pilots have paid tribute to their late front-man with an intimate & heart-felt video. Watch.
The three surviving founding members of STP – Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz – have made available a tribute video in which they remember Scott Weiland‘s singing ability & songwriting in a very tender session for the song “Atlanta.”
“Recently the three of us sat down together to share our memories of Scott and take a moment to reflect on the amazing times we shared,” the remaining members said in a statement to Rolling Stone. “We put the master up of a song called ‘Atlanta’ from the No.4 record that we feel really highlights the true brilliance of Scott. We would like to share it with you. Together let’s honor Scott… Having the opportunity to listen to these tracks individually reveals 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.”
Scott Weiland was found dead on his tour bus in Minnesota on December 3rd, with his cause of death recently confirmed to have been drug-related. More from Rolling Stone.
