Jeremy Brown, guitarist for Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts, passed away on Monday at the age of 34, one day before the release of their debut album Blaster.
Weiland announced the sad news on Facebook, revealing he was worried when Brown failed to show up for rehearsal. Jeremy’s family called to reveal the sad news of his death.
Scott Weiland posted the tragic news to fans:
Brown first worked with Weiland in 2008 when the singer recorded his solo album “Happy” in Galoshes.
Weiland said of the Wildabout album recently, “The sound we were getting felt original and infectious and brought me back to the feelings I had when I made my first couple records. Just excitement, feeling invigorated. Youthful.
“Blaster is definitely a band sound: a stripped-down, furry sound with a lot of space between the notes. But it’s tight and to-the-point while keeping that garage rock vibe.”
In an interview with LA Weekly, Weiland said Brown “came up with a majority of the riffs” for Blaster.
The guitarist was only 34-years-old. There has been no cause of death released yet. R.I.P.
