Over the weekend, on the one year anniversary of Scott Weiland's death, the Stone Temple Pilots penned a remembrance of their late lead singer. The letter was published on the band's website, and read:
"Here we are. A year has passed since you've been gone.
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. Perhaps you are in a place now to better describe it.
We miss you Scott."
Weiland died December 3rd, 2015 from an overdose of cocaine, ethanol, and methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA). The singer passed away in his sleep on a stop in Bloomington, Minnesota, where he and his band, The Wildabouts, were touring in support of their new LP, Blaster.
Weiland was the singer for the Stone Temple Pilots from 1989 to 2002 and again from 2008 to 2013. He was also the lead singer of Velvet Revolver from 2003 to 2008.
