Scott Weiland’s Son Noah Says His Music Is Completely Different Than Stone Temple Pilots’

Stone Temple Pilots’ late vocalist Scott Weiland’s son Noah recently spoke about his music and new single ‘Drunk.’ Also, the young musician said he didn’t want to hang on to Scott’s coattails and build up a career independently from him.

Scott Weiland is known to be the iconic vocalist of Stone Temple Pilots. Even though he gained recognition by being an iconic band member and having an influence on the rock world, the group fired him in 2013. Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington took his place until he decided that he wanted to spend his career focusing on Linkin Park and his family.

Weiland sadly passed away in 2015 from an accidental drug overdose. His son Noah followed in his father’s footsteps and ventured into the music world with his band Suspect 208, a newly disbanded group. After deciding he would continue making music as a solo artist, Noah released his new solo song, ‘Drunk’ this week.

He recently spoke about his father’s musical style with Stone Temple Pilots and stated that his direction would not be that because he doesn’t want to cling to his dad’s fame and popularity. The musician also noted that his style would be completely different than STP, and he is happy about it. Currently, he is focusing on his solo music and recovering from his addiction.

Here are Noah’s words on his music:

“I’m finding my own sound, creating my own lane, and doing things completely independently because I’m not trying to ride my dad’s coattails. We make completely different music. I am currently very focused on sobriety.

My recovery and music are the only things that matter to me at the moment. This new song is mostly just fun, nothing too deep. Although my next one is more about my father, mother, a little shade at my old stepmom, my adult years, growing up, much different from what people expect, and addiction.”
