Deleo Fears Recovering Weiland Is 'Popping Pills'

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS bassist ROBERT DELEO has urged frontman SCOTT WEILAND to seek help for an alleged drug addiction, accusing the rocker of "popping pills".
Weiland, who has previously battled alcohol and drugs, suffered a heroin relapse in late 2007, but recently revealed he had quit taking illegal substances for the sake of his two young children, Noah and Lucy.
He said, "Heroin made me feel all right in my own skin. Before I did it I was uncomfortable going into crowds, which is interesting given my profession. But when I did dope, the fear went away. That's why I hung on to it so long. But my kids fill up that hole now."
But DeLeo has voiced fresh concerns for his pal's health after he reportedly showed up two hours late for a recent photoshoot and interview with U.S. music magazine Spin and requested four glasses of whisky upon his arrival.
And DeLeo insists Weiland should undergo treatment for his personal problems before it affects their promotional plans for their new self-titled album, which is released in the U.S. on Tuesday (25May10).
He tells Spin magazine, "He can't got on tour. He needs help... He thinks he's clean just because he's not shooting heroin. But he's popping pills."

I'm a huge Scott Weiland fan as well as an STP fan. But you'd have to be a complete idiot or half in the bag yourself if you haven't noticed that Scott is still using something. He slurrs his words in interviews, he slurrs while he's singing and seems to not quite be able to hit the notes. It's painful to watch and as much as I really hope them all continued success with the release of the new album and the promotional tour, I sincerely have my doubts that Scott will be able to follow through with his obligations. I feel badly for him but especially for the rest of his band mates who unlike him, really seem to have it together. Not to mention his children who deserve a sober father when he's physically there. I met the Deleo brothers in Kingston last fall and a nicer couple of guys you'll never meet. Robert Deleo looks like he's about 25. Scott needs an intervention STAT!
