5 positive things to say about Scott Weiland…

The mainstream media and some music fans wants to say all kinds of negative stuff about Scott Weiland. Over the years, I supported the man the best I could and he always had my back and support almost most of the time. I would always try to defend the man too. No matter what anybody thought of Scott, I always supported the man. I’ve always loved Scott’s music since the days when STP started coming out in the 90’s. He’s been a hero to me since high school.

What are 5 things about Scott that are positive about him?

  • He was a great vocalist, musical genius and a great live performer too:  Love him or hate him all you want to, you can’t deny that the man is one of the greatest rock frontmen of all time. The man really knew how to sing. When he sings, his phrasing is so good and he knew how to make his vocals sound melodic. He doesn’t just sing along with the guitar riff like most singers do, this guy actually SINGS and did it well. He was also one of the best live performers around and knew how to put on a show ’cause he was a showman and entertainer.
  • He had a real passion for music:  Even though the doors kept closing on him with STP and Velvet Revolver, he just kept going musically with either his solo career or the Wildabouts. He had a big passion for music for sure and you can’t deny that. The man loved what he did and he showed it.
  • He appreciated his fans & supporters: Scott was really good with his fanbase. He appreciated them all. He would interact with fans online with his instagram/facebook/twitter and all that stuff. Plus, he is willing to meet fans out in public and take photos/sign autographs or whatever. Scott was a pretty classy guy.
  • He gave the best interviews: Scott always gave the best interviews in the music press ’cause I’ve read a lot of them. He always gave honest and intelligent answers. I’ve always enjoyed reading or listening to his interviews. I’ll admit that sometimes his interviews can get pretty weird but that’s because he was probably high or drunk on something but other than that, he can give some really cool interviews.
  • He was a pretty strong and tough dude:  He may have had all kinds of negative stuff thrown at him but he knew how to stay above it all. Even though he didn’t get along with STP and the Velvet Revolver, he kept on keepin’ on. Staying strong and lived life the way he wanted to.

That’s it. I didn’t think he deserved to be called a “trainwreck” and all that stuff ’cause we all have our problems. Despite his problems, he was a good man.



Report: Axl jealous of Slash’s popularity?

I guess Axl still does have pure hatred for Slash after all. When Axl says, “the less anyone heard of him or his supporters, the better”…I think that’s a sign of jealousy right there. It’s obvious Axl’s still paying attention to Slash’s career with the Velvet Revolver. These days the Velvet Revolver is more successful than the new Guns N’ Roses. Maybe that’s Axl’s grudge against Slash?

Notice when everytime Axl talks trash at Slash publicily, Slash never responds and ignores him. Slash is a guitar great and a good dude. Axl thinks he’s destroying Slash by talking trash about him on the internet. Come on Axl, you pussy, try saying this stuff in front of his face and show that you’re a tough guy.

BREAKING NEWS: The Velvet Revolver fired Scott Weiland…

Slash recently announced that the band “Velvet Revolver” had kicked lead singer Scott Weiland out of the band. Slash says that the Velvet Revolver is about the fans and the music, but Scott Weiland was not committed to either, so the band was forced to move on without him. Which means they kicked him out. Weiland still seems to be an alcoholic and a drug addict which is probably the reason for his strange behavior.

Weiland agreed to leave the band so he can join the Stone Temple Pilots for a full reunion tour this summer.

The Stone Temple Pilots reunion won’t even last long either, should Dean and Robert trust him after this?
