UPDATE: We have a new story where it is confirmed that Scott Weiland was drinking before this concert. Weiland said in his 2011 book Not Dead & Not For Sale, ““For years I’ve known goddamn well that I’m a drunk, but who wants to admit that? After kicking the strong stuff, why couldn’t I have a little drink now and then? What harm was there in a small indulgence? The answer was serious harm – potentially fatal harm. For me, putting a drink in my mouth is something like putting a lead blanket over my heart.”
Filter frontman Richard Patrick has shared some sad video footage from Scott Weiland’s recent performance at the Brewster Street Icehouse in Corpus Christi, Texas. Weiland sings off key in several songs and misses the cue to hit the chorus during “Modzilla.” One of Weiland’s people also assists him in putting his jacket back on in the first video.
We here at AlternativeNation.net are huge fans of Weiland’s and are rooting for him to be at his best, both personally and professionally, after all of the beautiful music he has given us over the years. Everybody wants to see him kick ass and take names like we know he can. It would be a lot more fun to write about incredible concerts, or about Weiland enjoying a long break from touring with his friends and family.
Thoughts are with Scott!! I Love this guy! Here he is doing a classic STP song. http://t.co/6u6QDFDxGa
