Scott Weiland was one of my favorite vocalists and the most entertaining frontman you'll ever see a a live show.

I bet there are kids on Twitter thinking "Who is Scott Weiland?" If you're my age, he was a part of you in the 90s and some of the 00s.

Oh no, RIP Scott Weiland. STP probably defined my childhood as much as any band. https://t.co/mooyL4g2KD

Scott Weiland was a Rock Star, embodying its best & worst traits. Great talent, voice & slinky showmanship behind the mic stand. RIP.
