Scott Weiland’s Scarf from Velvet Revolver Days is On Ebay for Sale!

Late Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland’s scarf is being sold on eBay for $975. You can also do a payment plan of $41 per month for 2 years. Scarves were a major part of Weiland’s onstage look during his later years. Weiland died from an accidental drug overdose in December 2015.

Scott Weiland’s Actual Scarf he wore around 2007-2008 on tour with Velvet Revolver.

Kind of a random listing. I was Scott Weiland’s “Day To Day” manager (basically a glorified assistant) from 2005-2008 during the time he was in Velvet Revolver, and at the beginning of the STP reunion.. I somehow have a few of his random items such as a few stage clothes + clothes from a video shoot, and other random items. They’ve just been sitting in my closet for almost 10 years now. Figured I’d give them up to some true fans.

I received this scarf while I was on tour w/ STP in 2008. I’d be in Scott’s hotel room helping him get organized/packed to leave for the next city, and he’d often times just hand me things and ask if I wanted it. This is was one of those items.

I’m sure you if you search around, you can find a pic of him wearing this scarf. And for additional proof, I can email you a pic of Scott and myself.
