The above screenshot comes from Scott Weiland's Facebook page where he posted a video saying he is not in jail for meth, but actually in an LA studio recording with his bandmates. This was in reaction to TMZ who still insists that Scott is in fact in jail. TMZ says:
Weiland just posted a video to Facebook saying he's NOT in jail. He appears to be in an L.A. recording studio. But there's a bit of a twist ...TMZ's initial claim is that Scott has been in jail for four weeks for stealing razors and meth possession... The PiLOT thickens.
We just spoke to a rep for the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. who tells us, "He is definitely in custody. We did a physical check on that inmate and he is currently in custody."
And ... the Beverly Hills Police Dept. gave us a written statement titled, "Celebrity Arrest," and in the statement it says, "The suspect, former Stone Temple Pilots band member Scott Weiland (46 years of age), was taken into custody for burglary and possession of a controlled substance."
Stay tuned ...
UPDATE: TMZ admits their mistake with this update:
L.A. County Sheriffs are now confirming the famous Scott Weiland is NOT in custody ... and have launched an investigation to find out who exactly they have locked up.Now he is?
This story is unbelievable -- Sheriffs tell us they believe a Scott Weiland impersonator is currently behind bars ... and claim he looks identical to the singer ... including his trademark red hair.
We're told once TMZ called cops after the real Scott posted online video calling BS on his arrest -- they went and confronted the unknown man and established he was a knockoff.
The sheriffs -- who are in charge of the jail -- claim the Beverly Hills PD made the arrest and ID'd the guy as the former Stone Temple Pilot Scott Weiland. Pseudo Scott was processed and has been in jail since July 26th.
The guy in jail allegedly stole the razors and had meth ... but he ain't famous.
This morning a press release went out that Scott Weiland has been "terminated" from Stone Temple Pilots. To that Scott says:
SCOTT WEILAND STATEMENT ON STONE TEMPLE PILOTS:Ironically, Scott's "solo" tour, which hits NYC, NJ and PA in March has him "Celebrating STP Core and Purple in their entirety".
I learned of my supposed "termination" from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press. Not sure how I can be "terminated" from a band that I founded, fronted and co-wrote many of its biggest hits, but that's something for the lawyers to figure out. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing all of my fans on my solo tour which starts this Friday.

Miguel, who just released a song with J. Cole and won a Grammy and performed at the ceremony, added a third NYC area to his upcoming tour supporting Alicia Keys. The new show happens on April 8 at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. Tickets for that show go on AEG/Venue/Radio presale today at 10 AM, with a general on-sale starting Saturday (2/16) at noon (password might be "BRANDNEW").
Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland will be performing STP's first two albums, Core and Purple, in their entirety at Irving Plaza on March 9 in NYC and State Theatre on March 12 in New Brunswick. Tickets for those shows go on sale today at 10 AM.
Afrika Bambaataa is playing Cameo Gallery on April 13. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
With Velvet Revolver (roffle at that name/band, forever) officially dunzo, Scott Weiland and the rest of the lads in Stone Temple Pilots, who recently played SXSW, are touring off of their forthcoming self-titled album which features "Between The Lines" (video below). That tour now includes a show at the relatively tiny Gramercy Theater in NYC on 5/18 (Tuesday). Tickets go on sale at 10AM Friday, if you're into that sort of thing.
And speaking of the Gramercy on May 18th and the 90s, Local H will play a separate show with Kinch at the same venue on the same night. Tickets are on sale for the NYC date of their "The 6 Angry Records" Tour:
It's all in the numbers... Local H is taking a cue from their sold out, 7 night stand in Chicago and taking all 6 of their studio albums on the road. Every night, the band will put all 6 of their records in a hat (sorry guys, no b-sides); one lucky (?) member of the audience will be selected to pull a record out of that hat and Local H will play it front to back. On the spot... No, really.Awesome idea for a tour.... Neurosis, Sonic Youth, Bjork, are you listening? Local H on the road in support of 68 Angry Minutes, their live DVD that hit the shelves in the tail end of last year. Local H and STP tour dates, and some videos are below...
And the nominees are:
As Good As Dead
Pack Up The Cats
Here Comes The Zoo
Whatever Happened to P.J. Soles?
12 Angry Months

Red Hot Chili Peppers are suing Showtime which kind of makes sense since I always just assumed that Showtime must have paid them already to name their show "Californication". The Times of South Africa says that, like Bruce Springsteen's Magic, Californication was the Chili Peppers' big comeback album. Are they still back? I don't know.
Velvet Revolver were denied visas by Japan because "Japanese immigration officials appear to have taken exception to the backgrounds of various band members...." In related news, Scott Weiland is going to write a book just like Slash did. And speaking of Slash, he's holding a competition for guitar players.
