SCOTT WEILAND PRAISES PRESIDENT OBAMA, ADMITS HE STILL DRINKS & RANTS ABOUT GRUNGE
Possible Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland went on a long rant at his solo show last night in Washington DC. Numerous fans on Twitter claimed Weiland was drunk during his performance. chloesdad said on the BelowEmpty.com forums, “I’ve seen more STP/VR/Scott solo then I can count and this was by far the most painful show I’ve ever been to and that includes a show in which he didn’t even show up (Tampa 2008).”
Weiland’s rant included his thoughts on President Obama, “I think we have an amazing President, he’s just amazing.” He also said, “You’re thinking Scott Weiland is on drugs again…no that was 11 years ago, but I still drink…” This led into a bizarre rant about blogs, which included him asking what a blog was and proclaiming “Peter Jennings is awesome.”
Weiland also discussed Grunge, “People called it Grunge, but it wasn’t Grunge…it was going on everywhere.” Weiland seemed to be talking about how Seattle gets the most attention when it comes to the Grunge era. chloesdad said on BelowEmpty.com regarding Weiland’s rants, “Definitely went on rants that made little to no sense.”
GrungeReport.net, as always, is rooting for Scott to get sober and live a long and happy life. We’d rather be reporting stories on kick ass Scott Weiland/Stone Temple Pilots shows than this type of stuff.
