Weiland Recovers From Seizure, Plots Stone Temple Pilots Tour

September 22, 2009 1:52 PM ET

Scott Weiland wasn't going to let something like a little seizure prevent him from performing this weekend: As Rolling Stone reported late Friday, Weiland suffered a mild seizure on a flight from Los Angeles to Miami, forcing the plane to make an emergency landing in Dallas. After a brief visit to the hospital, Weiland — who was in "good spirits" after recovering — caught a flight to Miami and made it in time for his scheduled hour-long solo performance at the city's Mansion venue, TMZ reports.

The quick-healing Weiland and the rest of the Stone Temple Pilots also announced that they'll hit the road next month for a jaunt of the States in October and a raid on Canada in November. Weiland and the gang will then bid goodbye to 2009 with a New Year's Day show in Thackerville, Oklahoma. Check out the tour as it stands now below:

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
