Scott Weiland Is Just Having A Rough Time Of It

If ever there was an argument against video replacing the printed word as far as interviews with famous personalities go, this LA Weekly chat with Scott Weiland–whose album Happy In Galoshes comes out a week from today–is it. Because at least when you’re reading an interview that is marked by the subject’s seeming inability to answer a question with a complete sentence, you don’t have to focus on a closer-than-a-vlog-closeup of said subject’s face when he’s trying to articulate his grief over the past year, and how it inspired Galoshes, and utterly failing. I mean I can understand why the whole “up close and personal” idea is total click-bait, but I went into a full-on body cringe at around the 1:40 mark of the clip and didn’t emerge from it until five minutes after watching it was behind me.
