Scott Weiland, whose career as the lead singer of the Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver was overshadowed by his unending battle with drug addiction, died at age 48 on Dec. 3, 2015, while on tour with his latest band, The Wildabouts. Weiland was found dead on his tour bus in Bloomington, Minnesota, with his cause of death later announced as an accidental drug overdose.
