Scott Weiland was laid to rest on Thursday at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery after a very low-key funeral attended by members of both Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver. This fact only came to light after several people at the ceremony posted tributes on Instagram.  Here, for example, is something from Susan Holmes-McKagan, wife of VR bassist Duff McKagan.

This is from Chris Kushner, wife of VR guitarist Dave Kushner.

As to why Scott died, we still don’t know, although stories are surfacing about police being called to the tour bus about “a possible overdose” and a search that turned up a quantity of drugs. Toxicology results won’t be back for another four to eight weeks.
