Sony/ATV Inks Deal For Scott Weiland's Stone Temple Pilots Catalog


Sony/ATV Music Publishing has signed a worldwide deal to represent the Stone Temple Pilots catalog of late frontman Scott Weiland worldwide.

Weiland co-founded the alternative rock band and was the co-writer and frontman for their first six albums. Weiland died in December 2015 apparently due to accidental overdose at age 48.

"We are excited to be the home of such a classic and prestigious body of work," said Sony/ATV chairman and CEO Jon Platt to Billboard, "that we are honored to bring to a wider audience."

"Scott Weiland was one of the most iconic frontmen of his generation and with Stone Temple Pilots created a legacy of timeless songs that Sony/ATV is now privileged to represent," added Sony/ATV president and global chief marketing officer Brian Monaco. "I am thrilled about the licensing opportunities that we can create from this incredible catalog."

Last week, Warner Chappell Music announced it has signed an exclusive worldwide publishing deal to administer the catalog of Stone Temple Pilot members Robert DeLeo, Dean DeLeo, and Eric Kretz.
