Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts guitarist Jeremy Brown has passed away. Scott Weiland posted the following on his Facebook tonight:
We received a call today about my friend Jeremy Brown that has shaken me to the core. We were all concerned this afternoon when Jeremy didn’t show up for a long-scheduled rehearsal for tonight’s album release show at School Night. An hour later, Jeremy’s family called us to say that he had passed away. I am in shock right now, everyone that knows him is devastated. It is a terrible loss that goes beyond words. He is one of my best friends, a truest friend and one of the most gifted guitar players that I’ve ever known. A true genius. It’s impossible to explain how much he will be missed and what a hole this will leave in our hearts. A post on Facebook feels so trite and small compared to the love that I have for him and for the talent that has passed on but I felt it was necessary to at least start here. Please keep his family in your thoughts.
Alternative Nation sends its best wishes to Jeremy Brown’s friends and family during this tough time. Reporter Doug McCausland said, “I met Jeremy briefly in Atlantic City last year after his tight performance, and he was very laid back and personable. His crunchy guitar riffs on Blaster really brought new life to The Wildabouts. I give nothing but my deepest condolences to Brown’s friends and family.”
RIP Jeremy Brown
