STP tribute to weiland
Stone Temple Pilots are paying tribute to their former singer, Scott Weiland, on the first anniversary of his passing.
Weiland - who parted ways with STP in 2013 and spent the next two years working on solo music and his group The Wildabouts - died in Bloomington, MN on December 3, 2015 at the age of 48 from an accidental overdose while on tour.
"Here we are. A year has passed since you've been gone," writes STP by way of a Facebook tribute on Saturday. "We often think of you and are reminded of you daily with many memories. Then there is the music the four of us carved out allowing us to listen and feel how brilliant you are.
"There was a time when we looked up to one another. Each of us wanting one another's approval. The songs we wrote had to have complete impact on us in order for them to shine. When it did... it was unearthly.
