Like most of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Scott Weiland's passing late last night.

Saddened, but not completely shocked. The last time I heard from Scott Weiland was 3 or 4 years ago, and at that point he couldn't remember the name of his new band during a radio interview.

Scott dealt with substance abuse for a long period of time, and while we're not completely sure that contributed to his death, it should be a learning experience. If you or anyone you know is dealing with substance abuse issues, there are a lot of avenues for help, including Wyoming Substance Abuse Treatment.  

Scott had one of the best rock & roll voices I've ever heard. And while many of us will be blasting Stone Temple Pilots today, don't forget about the greatness that was Velvet Revolver, too!

Here's my 5 favorite Scott Weiland songs... (Yes, it's just my opinion. Feel free to share your opinion!

1. Stone Temple Pilots 'Dead and Bloated

2. Stone Temple Pilots 'Interstate Love Song'

3. Velvet Revolver 'Fall To Pieces'

4. Velvet Revolver 'Slither'

5. Stone Temple Pilots 'Plush'
