I think that's why Pearl Jam are still around, and Soundgarden to a degree as well. They chose to have a healthy lifestyle and not go down that spiral.

It's been a awhile now and I still think about his passing. I was in the process of looking for someone to go with me to the Wildabouts show he was supposed to play next when he came to Iowa when I saw the news come up in my feed.

Celebrity deaths are weird. I mean, if any one of us died people wouldn't go on about how our use of drugs in the past led to this eventuality. People would simply respect and morn the loss. Maybe discuss some great times. But here we have almost every single thing I see about this situation discussing the mans drug use and almost nothing else.

Anyway, Thank you Scoot. For all of the ups and downs we went through together. I'll miss you and I'll keep listening like I always have.

Cause of death has been confirmed, via Loudwire.

The toxicology tests have reportedly come back on Scott Weiland. According to the results, Weiland overdosed on cocaine, MDA (ecstasy) and alcohol.
Shortly before a Dec. 3 gig in Minnesota, Scott Weiland was found unresponsive in the back bedroom of his tour bus. Police were called for a possible overdose, and according to TMZ, that was the cause of Weiland’s passing.
A multitude of substances was found on Weiland’s tour bus the night he died, including cocaine, a generic version of Xanax, two brands of sleeping pills, Viagra, Buprenorphine (a synthetic opiate painkiller) and Ziprasidone (used to treat bipolar disorder and schizophrenia). A leafy green substance was also found. Strangely enough, ecstasy was not found on the bus, though it was reputedly part of the cocktail which killed Scott Weiland.
According to TMZ, the report from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner also reveals heart disease and asthma were “significant” conditions for Weiland. “Multi-substance dependence was also listed as a factor, though Xanax and the other pills found on Weiland’s bus were not an immediate factor in Scott’s apparent overdose.
After Weiland’s death was reported on Dec. 3, a massive outpouring of love came from Weiland’s former Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver bandmates, along with fellow musicians and contemporaries.

I figured that's what did him in. He'd done so much in the past I figured he mixed the wrong things or just took an obscene amount of something.

Same. I knew it would had to be something he was doing now or the ill effects after all those years.

So, I'm the only one who wanted to believe he had a non-drug-related heart attack? Okay.

I would of liked to believe that, but considering his lifestyle and his previous actions would all indicate that drugs likely played a role in his death.

With all of his drug abuse in the past, even if he was sober when he died which he wasn't, it would seem almost impossible to me that his drug use wouldn't have contributed to his death. You can't be an addict and not have some sort of health effects from it.

Pretty much this. As much as I wished it wasn't drug related, with his past it would be more of a shock if it WASN'T drug related.

The remaining members of STP pay tribute to Scott.

Sad stuff. Stone Temple Pilots were playing when I had my first kiss. Awful to lose that musician, his creative legacy will be remembered.

It was just before I really became a grunge fan in early 2016 that Weiland died, and just around the time I got into Soundgarden when Chris Cornell died. I will always feel some thing missing for these reasons
