About Scott Richard Kline

After rocketing to fame as the frontman for grunge-era favorites Stone Temple Pilots, singer Scott Weiland later mounted a solo career and joined the supergroup Velvet Revolver. Born October 27, 1967, in Santa Cruz, CA, he spent his first 15 years outside of Cleveland before moving back to the West Coast and immersing himself in the thriving Orange County punk scene. Weiland founded the band Mighty Joe Young with guitarist Robert DeLeo in 1987; later rechristened Stone Temple Pilots, the group became one of the biggest acts of the mid-'90s, following the lead of artists like Nirvana and Pearl Jam and topping the charts with an angst-ridden hard rock sound. However, such success did not come without a price. Following the group's second LP, 1994's Purple, it was revealed that Weiland had become a heroin addict.

After his stay in rehab, he returned to Stone Temple Pilots to record their third record, 1996's Tiny Music...Songs from the Vatican Giftshop. However, after Weiland suffered a relapse in his ongoing battle with drugs, the group was forced to cancel its upcoming tour. The other three members subsequently recorded an album with a different singer under the name Talk Show.
