In sad but sadly not surprising news, Scott Weiland passed away last night while on tour. As the original singer for Stone Temple Pilots, the erstwhile singer for Velvet Revolver, and the current singer of the Wildabouts (among many other projects), he more than made his mark on the musical landscape in the last 20+ years.
I think STP’s message best expresses the loss:
Personally, I feel the best way to honor and respect a musician is with their music. Without further ado:
For more of Scott’s career, Billboard has put together a Spotify playlist in tribute:

May you finally be at peace Scott.
