Native of California, Scott Weiland aka Scott Richard Kline formed the band Stone Temple Pilots with brothers Robert and Dean DeLeo and rose to fame in the early 90s. The band’s debut album Core soared to No. 3 on the Billboard followed by another achievement a year later with the release of Purple which contained several radio hits including the songs “Vasoline,” “Big Empty”and “Interstate Love Song.” STP went on to sell 13.5 million albums in the U.S. before falling apart.

In 2002, Weiland joined former Guns N’ Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum in a supergroup famed as Velvet Revolver. Throughout much of his career, the singer had weathered several public run-ins with the law, mostly due to drug use and driving under the influence.

Tributes to the late singer have been pouring in from all over the music world.
