As part of Stone Temple Pilots, and also the super group Velvet Revolver (which featured formers members of Guns n’ Roses), he had a formative influence on what music I grew up listening to and playing over my teenage and early twenties.

Songs like:

And the albums they came from, all made a lasting impression on my musical preferences and directions.  Memories like playing along on my guitar to Plush and Interstate Love Song, are still fresh.

As is seeing Velvet Revolver play live, their stage presence, and energy even in a vast arena stadium was immense. Scott Weiland as a frontman was awesome, to line up and share the stage with someone like Slash, takes both character and charisma.

Thank you Scott for the music, you will be missed.
