Jeremy Brown Dead: Scott Weiland Guitarist Passes Away At 34

Jeremy Brown reportedly passed away on Mar.30. Currently, the causes of his death are unknown. Scott Weiland broke the tragic news via a Facebook post. The former Stone Temple Pilots frontman wrote:

We received a call today about my friend Jeremy Brown that has shaken me to the core. We were all concerned this afternoon when Jeremy didn’t show up for a long-scheduled rehearsal for tonight’s album release show at School Night. An hour later, Jeremy’s family called us to say that he had passed away. I am in shock right now, everyone that knows him is devastated. It is a terrible loss that goes beyond words. He is one of my best friends, a truest friend and one of the most gifted guitar players that I’ve ever known. A true genius. It’s impossible to explain how much he will be missed and what a hole this will leave in our hearts. A post on Facebook feels so trite and small compared to the love that I have for him and for the talent that has passed on but I felt it was necessary to at least start here. Please keep his family in your thoughts.

Jeremy started playing with Scott after the singer was kicked out of his band, Velvet Revolver, in 2008, reports Rolling Stone. Jeremy would play guitar on Scott’s 2008 solo album, “Happy” In Galoshes. He would continue to play with him for the next 7 years, even joining Scott on the 2013 Purple To The Core tour, where they performed songs from the Stone Temple Pilots albums, Core and Purple. Scott decided to include Jeremy when he formed the band The Wildabouts in 2013. Unfortunately, Jeremy’s death came one day before the release of the Wildabouts’ debut album, Blaster

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jeremy’s family and friends during their time of loss.
