Per TMZ
Rock star Scott Weiland was found dead on his tour bus in Minnesota ... TMZ has learned.
Weiland was on tour with his band Scott Weiland & the Wildabouts ... they were supposed to play the Medina Ballroom tonight, but the show was canceled.
A source connected to the band tell us Scott was found Thursday night on the bus around 9 PM -- presumably, shortly before the band was to go on.
The former lead singer for Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver famously battled substance abuse for years. It's unclear right now what caused his death.
Story developing ...

Pretty shitty news. My cousin got me into STP when I was in my teenage years, but I wasn't huge into it like she was (she was crazy about Nirvana and Pearl Jam and all of that and she was the closest relative to my age) and 48 is way too young to be passing on.

Goose! on

    RIP. STP was part of the soundtrack to my high school years.

    This is so sad. I really loved what STP I heard, it's a shame he's gone so young.

    I don't know what's worse, that he died so young or that Rolling Stone had an obituary ready to go on short notice.

    Publications do that regularly for pretty much every major celebrity. That's actually not out of the ordinary.

    Really sad news...

    I wish I was more surprised by this news but he'd been on a dark path most of his life.


    Horribly tragic though. I'll listen to some STP in his honor today.

    Not a shock, but a terrible waste regardless. The first two STP albums are among my all-time favorites.

    I honestly am more shocked it took this long. He has been a slowly developing tragedy for several years. A very talented and very flawed guy. Like many musicians are. RIP good sir your contribution to the soundtrack of my life, especially in my teens and 20's and you will be missed.

    Inside of a dog...it's too dark to read.
