Los Angeles - Scott Weiland has been found dead on his tour bus age 48.
The former Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver frontman was touring with his group Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts when he was discovered at around 21:00 on Thursday night, according to TMZ.

Scott has struggled with substance abuse in the past but it's not yet clear what caused his death.
