Scott Weiland, the charismatic lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots, will offer the public a rare glimpse into his personal life next week as he auctions off a variety of clothing and personal affects to benefit his ArchAngel Organization. Weiland formed ArchAngel when his brother, Michael Weiland, passed away in early 2007 after a long struggle with addiction. Proceeds from the auction will be given to Michael Weiland’s widow and two children.
According to Scott Weiland: “The overall idea is to grow this into something more, while still helping my brother’s family, and to also reach out and help families who are or have recently been through the same painful and seemingly hopeless situation. For now however, this is what we can and what we are able to do. Have fun with it and know that 100% of the profits are going to help my sister in-law and my nieces Sophie and Claudette.”
Items being auctioned off include a guitar signed by Stone Temple Pilots, designer suits and denim, and clothes worn on stage, at awards shows, on tour and at various other public engagements. Other items include Scott’s casual attire, clothes he wears around the house as well as some “crud” Scott had at his house or studio. Most items are signed by Scott Weiland. New items will also be added periodically. The ArchAngel auction site can be accessed through http://www.SoftdriveRecords.com/archangel . Auctions will last two weeks and all items will have inexpensive starting prices.
