The first time I heard Scott's voice I knew that I would have to follow him through his career, he was my idol. On my bucket list was shaking his hand and thanking him for the healing I got from listening to his lyrics. I can identify with him.....I don't think he ever got over Janine. I saw part of myself in every image or show and of course in his lyrics. After connecting with Layne's Mom, Nancy ( super nice, graceful ladie ) & meeting Chris Cornell I was sure that I would have a chance to check the box on my bucket list next to his name.

I'm still at a loss of words over this and I am struggling as I speak right now. In the lyrics of "Atlanta" there is a hint where you can see that he "nearly forgot his broken heart"(reference from Chris Cornell's latest hit......Scott wrote "memories of candles and incense and all of these things, REMEMBER ME".

I wanted to be the best friend that he longed for, someone who didn't care who he was but paid more attention to what he was. In almost every photograph of him in the early STP days he was making the rest of the band laugh. I believe that was his genuine stress relief before the World got to him and only saw dollar signs.

You will never be forgotten and I will raise my glass when I see your face on the TV tonight. Playing "Atlanta" tonight & "Say Hello To Heaven" in your honor........

Scott,

Thank you. Your music and that unique and incredible voice mark my memories as a younger man. It was a privilege to say I was a fan of STP and truly knew your music as a Bass Player. Sin, Still Remains, Pretty Penny, Kitchenware, Silvergun, And So I Know, Trippin on a Hole, Hello, It's Late, Glide, Wonderful, Dare if You Dare... The list goes on and on and the memories are impressed with such emotion. Thank you Scott.

When I saw someone had said you passed on youtube while I was listening to "Song for Sleeping", I didn't believe it, but then I read it for myself, you were gone. I honestly felt like someone had punched me in the stomach, I love your music, your presence, everything about you. RIP Scott.

Scott you were my favorite singer of all time. I'm so mad I missed your show in Jim Thorpe PA and you passed several days after. I will never forgive myself for not calling off work on Black Friday to go see you. Music died that day when u passed. I cried for days. Love you and will continue to keep your music alive.

I will never forget the last time I saw you which was the Sunday before you left us. I was so close to the stage but I couldn't reach your hand so I grabbed your ankle. I couldn't help myself & I'm glad I did. I will never forget it! Your music brings such joy & happiness to my life. You will always live on in our hearts & through the great body of music that you've left behind. LOVE YOU FOREVER SCOTT!!!! <3><3><3>

Scott - When I met you I had just gone through 2 brain surgeries and had so many things going crazy in my life. You voice was like a beautiful harp to my ears. My husband and I would come to see Velvet Revolver and STP each and every time you toured our area. While your world was upside-down down. Your magic was the fruit that brought people together and lives together. I prayed for you during this past year and I will continue to pray for your family. Thank you for the legacy you left behide.

Thank you, Scott, for providing the soundtrack of our lives for the past 20+ years. My husband & I feel blessed to have seen you play many times over the years, and to have met you & the Wildabouts twice this year. We were determined to make every Wildabouts east coast show. You are SUCH a big part of our lives, and have inspired me to write & play music for many years. No one can match your lyrics...melodies...stage performance. We watched you go through life's changes as we went through ours, and know you have a heart of gold. Our lives will never be the same. Your music and legend speaks for itself. May you find the peace in Heaven this world denied you. Our prayers to Jamie, your children, family & bandmates. Thank you for sharing your heart, soul and music with us. Rock on in Heaven with Jeremy, Superman.

With deepest sympathy, we are wishing the family of Scott Weiland--a very talented and highly-valued songwriter and singer--the peace and comfort that only the God of comfort can provide during this sorrowful time. None of us are perfect, for all make mistakes. The key is to be humble as we grow in our journey of self-awareness, asking one another for forgiveness for our wrongs. It is our petition that Scott Weiland end his journey for ultimate peace in the promised Paradise!

RIP to Scott Weiland, one of the greatest vocalists of all time. One of my first concerts I went to with my girlfriend was at Meadowbrook in Gilford, New Hampshire in 2012 to see Stone Temple Pilots kill it for the first time in a long time. Had been a fan since the 90s so had seen them rock out on the Eastern Seaboard countless times in the early 2000's before that. Seen Velvet Revolver kill it on the West Coast as well when I lived out there. Whatever band Weiland was in he made that band the best including The Wildabouts who I saw this year in Brighton, MA at a small club with my girlfriend and they rocked. It was cool getting up that close to the stage again to see one of your idols as there is no way I got that close at many STP shows that did not have general admission in the mid 2000s on. Scott will be the most missed vocalist of 21st Century no doubt. He had better vocal range and more onstage energy than the majority of vocalists out there. He was a true brother and he set himself free. We will miss him. RIP Scott!

Hey Scott,
I had some difficult time when I was an adolescent and you really could't imagine how much your music helped me then. Anyway, even if my life has improved much since then, I've always been listening to your great music. I do really miss you terribly: it has been quite like the loss of a family member for me. May you can rest in peace brother.
Love you.

When my dad passed the question asked by all those attending "did this man we know and loved live a full life" that question came to mind again when I heard Scott was in heaven too. The answer clear, yes Scott did too. A loving wife beautiful children great friends close band mates devoted fans worldwide many talents a poet a singer a friend more importantly a human being with struggles like us all. Thank you Scott for all you shared. A full life indeed. I'll be waiting on a Sunday afternoon..... with only love for you prayers to your family and friends. You will be forever missed.

What more can be said about a man who touched so many. ..in so many ways. After all is said and done, he was just a man. Someone's son, husband, father, friend. He, like all of us. ..stumbled through this life the only way he knew how. ....with as much grace as he could matter. ...there were hard lessons learned....and good days enjoyed. ..he was human and faced all of the human failings and successes that we all have to face. In my opinion he did so with a style that was truly unique. He will be remembered fondly by all who valued him ...he will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him....and there will never be another like him. He was indescribably talented ...he was dynamic......he was unique...he was Scott Weiland.....God Speed to you sir......xxx

You have been an inspiration to me since I was an early teenager. Your part of the reason I'm who I am when it comes to playing music on stage or off stage. Weather it's a gig, or around a campfire with friends. Every time I've ever sang a cover song for the last 20 years, It's always been one of yours. You have truly blessed this world, and even those who do not even realize it yet. I don't have any candles, but one will always be lit inside me. I promise I will carry on your legacy as long as I live. I miss you so much already, but I know your able to shine upon even more as an angel. Love you man... I can't wait to join you when it's my time.
