Stone Temple Pilots Ask David Bowie To Send Message To Scott Weiland In Heaven

Stone Temple Pilots made a post on Facebook following the death of David Bowie yesterday asking him to send a message to their late frontman Scott Weiland.

STP wrote, “We love you David. Always have and always will. Thank you deeply for all that you gave us. Tell our Scott we love him very much.”

STP bassist Robert DeLeo also posted further tribute messages on Twitter.

He also retweeted this:

David Bowie has died after a battle with cancer, his rep has confirmed. He was 69. He just recently released a new album titled Blackstar.

“David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief,” read a statement posted on the artist’s official social media accounts.

This loss is crushing. With Scott Weiland’s death in December, I’ve lost two of my favorite singers of all time in just over a month. When I met Scott and interviewed him in December, I was wearing my Aladdin Sane shirt, and we discussed our favorite Bowie material. Now they’re both gone. Bowie was one of the most inventive singers of all time melodically and lyrically. Bowie created new worlds with his albums and songs, and was constantly reinventing himself and always staying relevant.

When I was driving home last night I was listening to “Under Pressure” and thinking about how sad it was that Freddie was gone and that I’d never see him live, but I thought, at least we still have Bowie, maybe I’ll get to see him live some day. Now that will never happen unfortunately.

    Was the message: “Way to go, dumbass”?

    • Craig A. Thompson

      No. I think the message was for you to kill yourself.

        That was really rude. How dare you speak to another human being like that.

        • david

          Also rude to suggest message ‘way to go dumbass’ to an addict and mental illness sufferer (SW). Not cool.

          • — J —

            I’m sorry you still feel the need to excuse his actions long after his death. It wasn’t cool then, it’s not cool now, and he’s dead because he had so many fans justifying his actions.

            Keep up the good work. Let’s see how many more substance abusers you can enable.

          • david

            SW suffered mental illness. What do you know about bipolar, schizophrenia, anxiety? Do research. Shit illnesses to have to endure. Many with mental illness treat their symptoms with drugs and alcohol.

      • Corndog

        Agree with J, that was pretty damn rude. Play nice.

        • Felonious Punk

          LoL remember a few days ago when Jimmy Intense told that James Treaux goof to eat the end of a shotgun barrel and NOBODY was complaining about it?

          • Corndog

            He brought it on himself.

  • Raj

    Crazy that Weiland and Bowie died just over a month apart, great cover of Andy Warhol by STP.

  • Felonious Punk

    That new Bowie album is good stuff. Dude was making gold all the way up until his death. Few musicians can say that.

    • Alternative Nation

      “I Can’t Give Everything Away” is my favorite right now. Like Freddie, he recorded right up until the end.

      • Felonious Punk

        Really digging “Lazarus” and “She Was a Pretty Little Whore” myself

        Have you seen the music videos for Lazarus and the title track? I think he was well aware he was on his way out.

        • david

          ‘Lazarus’ vid… Begins with view of a closet-looking coffin or coffin-looking closet (your choice) then ends eerily with him entering it. wow

          • Corndog

            I watched that Video after i heard about his death and i found it quite disturbing. There was something very odd about his movements and facial expressions. The whole thing was very surreal.

          • david

            Bowie. A genius at pushing boundaries to disturbing levels. Fearless in expressing his art. 100% Commitment. Much to be admired there.

          • Corndog

            Absolutely.

  • ITURBIDE

    – excuse me, have you seen Scott Weiland? I have a message for him…
    – sorry, since Lemmy is on the neighborhood we haven’t seen anyone in a while. They take the boss limo, a dozen of Jim Beam bottles and some girls…ask down there…

  • Jason Kaye

    They wanted David Bowie to send a message to who? Please.

  • Keyser Soze

    “We love you David. Always have and always will. Thank you deeply for
    all that you gave us. Tell our Scott we love him very much.”

    He knows…
