Sott Weiland, the charismatic rock vocalist who first gained fame with 1990s rock band Stone Temple Pilot is no more.
The Grammy-winning singer, 48, who struggled with addiction, earned post-Pilots success with the platinum selling supergroup Velvet Revolver. His cause of death was not immediately available.
His wife, Jamie Weiland, a photographer, confirmed the news of his death to The Times in a brief conversation.
With a range that thrived in both high and low registers, Weiland was an archetypal rock singer.
He met Jamie in 2011, when she photographed one of his music video shoots. They married in June 2013.
