As you will recall, just days after a judge went slack on drugs charges
because of Weiland’s commitment to a drugs rehab programme, the singer was
pulled over for driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Following that incident Weiland was called into court yesterday and a judge ordered him to undergo a six month residential rehab programme at Grandview in Pasadena.
However, despite objections from prosecutors, Weiland will be allowed to leave the facility for four hours a day during half of November in order to finish recording his vocals for the debut Velvet Revolver album, the project which Weiland is fronting alongside much of the original Guns ‘n’ Roses line up.
