Scott Weiland's sudden death has caught the music world completely off-guard.
On Thursday night, the 48-year-old was found dead on his tour bus from cardiac arrest, just before a stop with his new band, Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts.
The former Stone Temple Pilots frontman had publicly struggled with drug abuse in the past, and some artists were reportedly worried that the rocker had recently been using crack cocaine.

Sources say there were narcotics on the bus, but the late musician's wife, Jamie Wachtel, is adamant that her husband did not die from an overdose.
While she admitted that he still drank in social situations, the photographer explained the band had made a pact to avoid drugs.
The brunette beauty said that when she left the group a week ago, the Velvet Revolver alum didn't appear to be struggling, remembering:
"He was the best he has ever been."
Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this sad loss.
