Former STONE TEMPLE PILOTS and VELVET REVOLVER frontman Scott Weiland was recently interviewed on Canada’s “The Todd Shapiro Show”. You can now listen to the chat below.
Asked for his opinion on the current terror threat to the world posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Weiland said: “Fuck ISIS. And if they come after me, I’ll fucking pull out my Glock 17 [semi-automatic pistol].”
Weiland and his band THE WILDABOUTS are on the road promoting his new album, “Blaster”, which came out on March 31.
THE WILDABOUTS have had several lineup changes since last year. Weiland fired his longtime guitarist and business partner Doug Grean in early 2014, while drummer Danny Thompson left to focus on his work with the ALAN PARSONS LIVE PROJECT. Meanwhile, guitarist Jeremy Brown stepped up to take a bigger role following Grean’s dismissal, but Brown’s sudden passing in March forced the band to hire Nick Maybury.
The cause of Brown’s death was released in May by the Los Angeles Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner. The report states that Brown’s death was an accident, and the result of intoxication from multiple drugs.
