Tristeza en el Grunge, Scott Weiland, el reconocido vocalista que hizo historia con Stone Temple Pilots y Velvet Revolver, ha fallecido en la noche del 3 de diciembre del 2015.
Aquí algunas reacciones del mundo de la música.
Duff McKagan compañero de banda en Velvet Revolver en su cuenta de facebook nos dice:
«We are deeply saddened to learn of the loss of our old friend and bandmate, Scott Weiland. We experienced a good chunk of life with Scott, and even in his darkest times, we all had hope and love for him. His artistry will live on, of that, there is no doubt.
Deepest condolences and sadness are for his children, Noah and Lucy. We all travelled around this world together on tour; our band, wives, and kids…and we grew to a big family that still remains to this day.
It’s just so sad and brutal from any perspective.
Rest In Peace Scott
Slash, Duff, Matt, and Dave»
Por el otro lado, sus compañeros en Stone Temple Pilots han escrito lo siguiente:
Let us start by saying thank you for sharing your life with us.
Together we crafted a legacy of music that has given so many people happiness and great memories.
The memories are many, and they run deep for us. We know amidst the good and the bad you struggled, time and time again.
It’s what made you who you were. You were gifted beyond words, Scott. Part of that gift was part of your curse.
With deep sorrow for you and your family, we are saddened to see you go.
All of our love and respect.
We will miss you brother,
Robert DeLeo, Eric Kretz and Dean DeLeo”
Uno de los críticos de Scott fue Billy Corgan de The Smashing Pumpkins, quien hoy ha escrito en la pagina oficial de la banda un texto algo inesperado. A continuación un fragmento del escrito.
«Having just woken to the news of this passing, I feel compelled to put pen to paper and pay my respects to Scott. And in that I will not pretend to know more than I know, or add some sad homily to how he loved his life. At least in that, may I now say he is undoubtably in the arms of grace and eternal love.»
I only met Scott briefly but was a fan of his work with @STPBand & VR. Like everyone I know he had many issues but still very sad. RIP Scott
