Scott Weiland and Bandmates Devastated By Jeremy Brown’s Passing

In a Facebook message to his followers, Scott Weiland announced the passing of long time friend and guitarist, Jeremy Brown. Scheduled to perform Monday evening in Hollywood featuring new music from upcoming album, Blaster, Scott and bandmates became concerned when Jeremy was more than an hour late. Shortly thereafter, they received the call.

“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.”

Playing with The Wildabouts and Scott Weiland for seven years, Jeremy’s soulful style brought life to whatever he played. NYS Music and our readers send keeping family and friends our thoughts during this difficult time.
