Following a gig with his band ‘The Wildabouts’ at Brighton Music Hall, excited fans lined up for their chance to meet their rock hero – but left extremely let down and wondering why they paid $150 to meet him.
Sources say the singer was acting erratically and seemed to be drunk. Several now former fans took to a fan forum to share their disappointment.
One fan wrote that when it came time to take a picture with the musician, Weiland “put his arm around me and literally said, ‘let’s get this shit done with.'” Weiland reportedly told one fan, “Let’s suck a dick!” when it was his turn to take a photo, while another — who was told not to mention his two STP tattoos to the rocker — remembered: “I walk up and tell Scott something along the lines of, ‘I just wanted to tell you I have been a fan for 20 years.’ Scott then interrupts me and says something like ‘OK, hurry up. I don’t want to hear it.’ I stand next to him and smile for my picture…meanwhile, he was complaining the whole five seconds that it was taking too long.”
Meanwhile, Scott Weiland has taken to Facebook to apologize for his pathetic behaviour, stating “I’m embarrassed by my behaviour and some of the things that I said. Fans don’t deserve that. Without our fans and supporters, we would not be able to do what we’re doing.”
Weiland’s Boston show was the last in the initial leg of his tour leading up to the March 30th release of Blaster, his first LP with the Wildabouts.
Good luck with that Scott.
