It's been 5 years since Scott Weiland died of cardiac arrest on his tour bus. Stone Temple Pilots guitarist paid tribute, saying Scott was so electric, full of life and art, and very pure until "other things took over." He says Scott's death leaves him with so many unanswered questions and he hates it.
Gavin Rossdale also tweeted a tribute:

I don't listen to the radio much these days, but that morning on Dec. 3, 2015, I turned it on and heard the news of his death. RIP
