Mark McGrath Says Scott Weiland Was ‘Out of It’ During Encounter Prior to His Death
As Spin points out, in an upcoming interview with Allegedly podcast, Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath claims Scott Weiland appeared “out of it” during a run-in prior to the Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver leader’s death at the beginning of the month.
“He was a friend of mine; I wasn't too shocked," McGrath said. "I ran into him a few times, and he admitted he was drinking still. Drinking’s just not part of the game; you’re either sober or you’re not.”
McGrath saw Weiland at a mutual friend’s wedding, and he said the late frontman was “slow, almost psychological more than it even was the booze.” He noted that Weiland seemed like a "shell of himself."
