It was confirmed Friday morning that Weiland had died in his sleep on a tour bus in Minnesota while touring with his band The Wildabouts. Though it was well known that the 48-year-old musician had long suffered from substance abuse issues, it has yet to be confirmed whether or not that played a part in his passing.
Weiland is survived by his wife Jamie Wachtel, and children Noah and Lucy from a previous marriage.
