Tragedy strikes for Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts; on the eve of the release of their debut album, guitarist Jeremy Brown (pictured, far right) has passed away.
From the Scott Weiland Facebook page:
We received a call today about my friend Jeremy Brown that has shaken me to the core. We were all concerned this afternoon when Jeremy didn’t show up for a long-scheduled rehearsal for tonight’s album release show at School Night. An hour later, Jeremy’s family called us to say that he had passed away. I am in shock right now, everyone that knows him is devastated. It is a terrible loss that goes beyond words. He is one of my best friends, a truest friend and one of the most gifted guitar players that I’ve ever known. A true genius. It’s impossible to explain how much he will be missed and what a hole this will leave in our hearts.
The cause of death is not known at this point. “A post on Facebook feels so trite and small compared to the love that I have for him and for the talent that has passed on,” wrote Weiland, “but I felt it was necessary to at least start here.” According to Billboard, the two met while Weiland was working on his second solo album, Happy in Galoshes, back in 2008.
