Creep (Scott Weiland's death)
« on: December 14, 2015, 06:38:55 PM »
I know not too many people on this board are old enough to remember when Stone Temple Pilots and the like were cool, but I do. They were right up there with Soundgarden and a step above Alice in Chains who were also very good.


Okay. Mini-tribute over. I read an article by Weiland's ex-wife (mother of his children) and I'll post a link.  http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/scott-weilands-wife-pens-emotional-letter-death/story?id=35644271

This man had so many chances at getting sober and living a hell of a good life but chose to piss it away. How can you watch so many of your contemporaries die, leaving pain and misery in their wake and then carry on like nothing happened? Thanks for the music, Scott, but I would have rather you raised your children and been there for loved ones than to listen to Purple. I really hope the trend of heroin addicted idols is now dead with Mr. Weiland.

Having said that, I'd rather listen to Papa Roach than GG Allin

The letter really got to me. I wish it was written and given to him before he died, though her other attempts to get him to see how shitty of a person he had become were unsuccessful.
