(AP) — Scott Weiland, the magnetic former frontman of the Stone Temple Pilots whose three-decade career in music also included solo albums and a spot in the supergroup Velvet Revolver, has died. Weiland was located,” the department’s statement said. “Detectives recovered an additional small quantity of suspected controlled substance that field-tested positive as cocaine, in the area of the tour bus known to be occupied by Thomas Delton Black, a traveling member of Weiland’s party,” the statement continued. Weiland’s death at 48 is under investigation by Bloomington police and the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office, which will be conducting an autopsy, a spokeswoman for the medical examiner told the Los Angeles Times.

My thoughts are with your loved ones,friends & fans.” Other celebrities also paid their respects. “I saw Scott Weiland perform many times and those were some of my favorite concerts of all time.

And she loves my kids and I love her son,” Weiland told Rolling Stone in November 2012. “She’s the greatest thing that’s happened to me in a long, long time.” Police said they found a small amount of cocaine in Weiland’s bedroom and elsewhere on the bus, and arrested a California man who was traveling with him on tentative drug possession charges. Weiland’s current band, Scott Weiland & the Wildabouts, had been scheduled to play a show in nearby Medina, Minnesota, on Thursday night, but it had been canceled a week earlier due to poor ticket sales. Mark Raskob, general manager at the Medina Entertainment Center, said Weiland’s show was canceled after fewer than 100 tickets had been sold for it in a venue with a capacity of about 1,800.
