I heard the news last night as it was all over social media. According to a statement on Scott Weiland's instagram page...

Scott Weiland, best known as the lead singer for Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, passed away in his sleep while on a tour stop in Bloomington, Minnesota, with his band The Wildabouts. At this time we ask that the privacy of Scott’s family be respected.

Such sad news, Scott was one of my all time favorite singers, so tragic as he was only 48 years old. He will be missed. Condolences to his family.
