Gentleman and a Scholar

I know I am a day late on this, but I have to share a story about the time I saw Stone Temple Pilots in 1999 at a Zeta Fest in South Florida. Scott was going through his heavy dress-like-a-badass-babe stage, and came out wearing a black bustier, fish nets, black stilettos, a boa, and lovely red bob wig. STP came out rocking and did a bunch of their hits. During one song, a man in the front of the crowd kept yelling “faggot!” at Scott. So between songs Scott knelt down at the edge of the stage and engaged the man in conversation, asking him why he was so angry, etc. The man proceeded to be a human pile of garbage and call Scott a range of homophobic slurs, to which Scott answered, “You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar,” before launching into “Dead and Bloated.” The crowd cheered, and the man slunk into oblivion.

And that is how I will always remember Scott Weiland: soulful, understanding, smart, witty, and looking fabulous. RIP
