Scott Weiland

After rocketing to fame as the frontman for grunge-era favorites Stone Temple Pilots, singer Scott Weiland later mounted a solo career and joined the supergroup Velvet Revolver. Born October 27, 1967, in Santa Cruz, California, he spent his first 15 years outside of Cleveland before moving back to the West Coast and immersing himself in the thriving Orange County punk scene. Weiland founded the band Mighty Joe Young with guitarist Robert DeLeo in 1987; later rechristened Stone Temple Pilots, the group became one of the biggest acts of the mid-'90s, following the lead of artists like Nirvana and Pearl Jam and topping the charts with an angst-ridden hard rock sound. However, such success did not come without a price. Following the group's second LP, 1994's Purple, it was revealed that Weiland had become a heroin addict. After a stay in rehab, he returned to Stone Temple Pilots to record their third record, 1996's Tiny Music...Songs from the Vatican Giftshop. However, after Weiland suffered a relapse in his ongoing battle with drugs, the group was forced to cancel its upcoming tour; when the other three members subsequently recorded an album with a different singer under the name Talk Show, STP's continued existence appeared shaky at best, and Weiland went solo to record 1998's 12 Bar Blues.

Problems stemming from drug abuse continued to dog Weiland during the late '90s. His album faltered commercially, and a subsequent arrest for buying heroin ultimately landed the troubled singer in jail. Nonetheless, STP reconvened for the 1999 album No. 4, which featured the hit single "Sour Girl" -- purportedly inspired by the breakup of Weiland's marriage. Despite the success of the album, STP officially parted ways around 2001, allegedly due to a fight between Weiland and DeLeo. Weiland still seemed unable to avoid controversy, as a car crash on his birthday in 2003 landed him back in rehab.

Around this time, former Guns N' Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan, and Matt Sorum -- no strangers to rock & roll excess themselves -- auditioned Weiland for a new band. The trio took to Weiland immediately, and the newly christened hard rock ensemble Velvet Revolver released a debut album, Contraband, in 2004. The effort proved to be quite popular, earning double-platinum certification in the U.S. and landing Velvet Revolver a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance (for the single "Slither") in 2005. Weiland remained with the band for 2007's sophomore effort, Libertad. Despite debuting at number five, however, the album fell from the charts within several months, and Velvet Revolver reluctantly postponed several tour dates when Weiland entered a rehab facility in early 2008. Tensions ran high during the shows that the band did manage to play, and Weiland's official exit from the band was announced on April 1. The singer likewise split with Camp Freddy, a cover band that also featured Velvet Revolver's Matt Sorum.

Free of his Velvet Revolver duties, Scott Weiland bounced back by joining the 2008 reunion of Stone Temple Pilots. Work on another solo album coincided with STP's summer tour, which saw the band performing 65 shows across the United States. Weiland then issued "Happy" in Galoshes, his second solo effort, in November 2008. A number of solo performances followed the album's release, including a concert at Henry Fonda Theater that was later documented on 2010's Live in Los Angeles. 2011 will saw the release of Weiland's much delayed holiday album, Most Wonderful Time of the Year, a set of traditional, yuletide standards like “Silent Night”, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and “O Holy Night,” done in a myriad of styles, including pop, big band, reggae, and bossa nova. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

breath is such i good song
I love Scott Weiland. He is the most gorgeous, talented artist out there.
Scott we seen u live in So-cal , u guys rocked the house and we would love to see you again anytime my friend ....
:o) My brother in herion addiction and my music idol....Scot t ' s awesome
Happy birthday! Tie one OFF for me; I'm waiting until the weekend. ;D
Hey Pandora - would you consider updating that photo? That's an old STP pic, Scott hasn't had his hair like that in ages.. :)
"he's an insult to the memories of all the dead rockers"

You mean like Joplin, Hendrix and Morrison? Those were all US intel hits. Think it's far-fetched? Take a look at John Lennon's FBI file. They followed him around for a decade after the Beatles broke up.
hes an addict and hes bipolar ... and he still makes great music and knows how to rock live, so zip it up a notch, eh? ya, he may end up dying from an overdose, but im gonna enjoy his music and his shows while i still can. woot woot!
scott weiland, despite his personal probs and whatnot, still kicks a**! very talented, and very hot! ya! rock on!
and yes, i have to agree that i like him better w/ stp and he rocked w/ vr, rather than the solo career, tho im not sayin it sucks! :)
Weiland.. You are still an AWESOME rocker and always will be an inspiration! ! ! YOU ROCK!!!!!!
12 Bar blues was much more experimental than 'happy'. Both albums are pretty solid, but I would have to agree that his work with STP is far better. I've seen STP live 4 times and they rock, however, I REFUSE to see them again anytime soon because their f****** live shows consist of only their hits!! Real fans revolt!!!!
Weiland sorry man.. You were better with Velvet Revolver and Stone Temple Pilots, with them you sounded much better, you solo career well isnt as good, but doesnt exactly suck.. get back with STP!!!!
Oh man this stuff is puro crap.
Velvet Revolver still sucks sweaty balls
This man can sing, but Velvet Revolver still sucks sweaty balls.
