In other Scott Weiland news, the singer recently took to Facebook to apologize after he was rude to fans at a recent meet-and-greet following a concert in Boston.
"I would like to make a sincere apology to the fans that were at the meet and greet in Boston," he writes. "I'm embarrassed by my behavior and some of the things that I said."
As first reported by AlternativeNation.net, several fans took to the STP forum BelowEmpty.com to vent about their unpleasant experience at the meet-and-greet, saying that Weiland was disrespectful and seemed drunk.
"I put my all into the show that night and honestly was just beyond exhausted," Weiland continues in his apology. "Either way, I acted like a total a**hole and for that I'm truly sorry."
