Chris Cornell pays tribute to Scott Weiland with ‘Say Hello 2 Heaven’ performance.

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor honored the late Scott Weiland on Monday at Hollywood club the Roxy, joining Royal Machines – a band featuring Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro – for a bruising rendition of Stone Temple Pilots staple “Sex Type Thing,” Classic Rock reports. As fans and family mourn the sudden death of troubled rocker Scott Weiland, his ex-wife has published a candid essay offering a reality check about his fractured relationship with his children. In the fan-shot video, Taylor introduces the song by shouting, “Let’s do a little ‘Sex Type Fuckin’ Thing’ right now!” The singer channels Weiland’s trademark rasp on the brooding Core cut, with Navarro nailing every distorted hammer-on and harmonic squeak of Dean DeLeo’s original riff. Cornell paid tribute Weiland the night after his death, during a concert in Melbourne, Australia, with a poignant performance of “Say Hello 2 Heaven.” But anything longer would often turn into something scary and uncomfortable for them.” Weiland married Mary, a model also known as Mary Fosberg Weiland, in 2000.

Though many of the obituaries and tributes noted his much-publicized struggles with drug addiction, Mary Forsberg Weiland’s essay — titled “Don’t Glorify This Tragedy” and published Monday by Rolling Stone magazine — shares some of the personal struggles she and the couple’s two children suffered. “We don’t want to downplay Scott’s amazing talent, presence or his ability to light up any stage with brilliant electricity … But at some point, someone needs to step up and point out that yes, this will happen again — because as a society we almost encourage it,” Forsberg Weiland, the rocker’s second wife, wrote in the missive. “We read awful show reviews, watch videos of artists falling down, unable to recall their lyrics streaming on a teleprompter just a few feet away. In his memoir, the singer detailed the couple’s problems with drugs, and credited Mary with spurring him to join Velvet Revolver, the supergroup he formed with members of Guns N’ Roses in 2002. “Basically, the story was that Mary had cleaned up and I hadn’t,” he wrote. “I was strung out and [messed] up. And then we click ‘add to cart’ because what actually belongs in a hospital is now considered art.” As a model on the rise, Forsberg Weiland met Weiland when he was a struggling musician working as a driver. Together we crafted a legacy of music that has given so many people happiness and great memories,” wrote STP’s surviving members Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz. “With deep sorrow for you and your family, we are saddened to see you go.” “We are deeply saddened to learn of the loss of our old friend and bandmate, Scott Weiland,” wrote Velvet Revolver. “We experienced a good chunk of life with Scott and, even in his darkest times, we all had hope and love for him. The pair had a tumultuous, headline-generating relationship over the years that included heroin, brawls, trashed luxury hotel suites, arrests and a 2007 incident where she infamously set fire to $80,000 of the singer’s clothes in the driveway of their California home.

His artistry will live on, of that, there is no doubt.” In an emotional chat with Sirius XM’s Matt Pinfield, Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum said of Weiland, “In the end, I just want the world to know that I feel like I made my peace with him.” 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again. In her Rolling Stone piece and in her own memoir, published in 2010, Mary claimed her ex financially and emotionally neglected his children. “When he remarried, the children were replaced,” she wrote in Rolling Stone. “They were not invited to his wedding; child support checks often never arrived. They have never set foot into his house, and they can’t remember the last time they saw him on a Father’s Day.” The essay urges Weiland’s fans to remember and engage with children of absentee parents and not to simply sweep his death aside as yet another tragedy chalked up to the “demons” of a rock and roll lifestyle. “I don’t share this with you to cast judgment, I do so because you most likely know at least one child in the same shoes.
