Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland experienced a mild seizure on a commercial flight from Los Angeles to Miami that resulted in the plane having to make an emergency landing at Dallas Fort Worth Airport.
A rep traveling with Weiland tells Rolling Stone exclusively that the airplane staff called for medical assistance over the loud speaker and had to administer oxygen to Weiland. Shortly after, Weiland had come to and was "in good spirits" as was taken off the plane for the hospital.
Weiland was traveling with his Scott Weiland Band to Miami for a performance and the launch of his clothing line Weiland for English Laundry at the club Mansion. The rep said the singer has a history of seizures, but is now "doing great" and expects to leave for Miami tomorrow and appear at the club as scheduled.
