TMZ is reporting that officers were called to late Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland’s Lavish Studio in Burbank, CA last week when Scott Weiland’s 15-year old son Noah and ex-wife Mary showed up for one of Scott’s guitars. TMZ reports that Noah wanted one of his father’s guitars, but an employee of the recording studio refused to give him and his mother access. An argument ensued, and police were called to calm the situation down. Mary was told it was a civil issue, and would need her lawyer to work out any division of property. Mary recently asked to be named the executor of Weiland’s will, rather than his widow Jamie, citing a 2007 will signed by Weiland.
Scott Weiland’s Lavish Studios closed last week, seemingly shortly after this incident, and is now for lease. Weiland opened the studio in 1997 in Burbank, CA, recording his solo albums 12 Bar Blues (1998), Happy in Galoshes (2008), The Most Wonderful Time of Year (2011), and Blaster (2015) at the studio. Weiland also worked on his vocals for Stone Temple Pilots, Velvet Revolver, and Art of Anarchy at Lavish. Lavish was a private studio until 2014, when it was opened to the public to record with Rocco Guarino heading up the endeavor for Weiland. Guarino continued to run the studio in the two months following Weiland’s death on December 3, 2015.
The 2,400 square foot studio is up for lease for $4,200 per month. You can view photos of the studio, and the floor plan, below.
