Scott Weiland Of Stone Temple Pilots Passes. Needing Help With Substance Abuse?
If you are a child of the 90's you more than likely went through or know of someone who went through the "Grunge" phrase. Not going to lie, I did. It was Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, and Stone Temple Pilots. The flannel shirts, the ripped jeans, the you don't know anything about me attitude..ahh the days. Unfortunately the side effect of all these hard partying rockers was the constant stories of substance abuse, overdoses and suicides.
Sadly another rocker from an age long gone Scott Weiland of the Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver passed away last night. Details are still unclear what has happened, but his camp posted to his Facebook
