SCOTT WEILAND SPOTTED TAKING SHOTS OF TEQUILA AT SOLO SHOW IN MIAMI
UPDATE: BelowEmpty.com forum member VegasCrackerman posted his account from the show, “There was no ‘backstage’ area in the club…so the band took a couple minute break after the main set in one of the service hallways – the rumoured ‘drinking’ didn’t take place until AFTER the gig had concluded.”
The Miami Herald reports that Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland was spotted taking shots of Corzo Tequila at his solo show on Saturday in Miami, during a brief intermission. Weiland stated at the show, “This could be the smallest stage I’ve played since 1992.”
Weiland started drinking again in 2007 and has been battling alcoholism since then. He attempted to quit for good in fall 2010 following a meltdown onstage at a Stone Temple Pilots show. Weiland has stated that he believes he can drink in moderation but it has been a sore subject with his STP bandmates.
