Scott Weiland was always notoriously late! So when he was supposed to call me at 1:05p the day before Thanksgiving to promote his Wellmont Theater show 5 years ago I didn’t expect him at 1:04p ready to go. He was. Called from his cell. No publicist -just Scott. He had just woken up and even stayed on the line with me after to talk about Thanksgiving and made it a point to tell me how much he missed his kids. And then said “Goodbye, Happy Thanksgiving  and thanks for being fair with your questions” .  I believe this was his final radio interview.

I have interviewed Scott before and have been a MAD Stone Temple Pilots  fan since the beginning. Scott meant everything to rock especially in the 1990’s. When he was on his game there was no one like him. He WAS Rock and Roll. Here is my last chat with him. And a vintage photo taken in the early 90’s in NYC. Rest Easy Scott. TC
