Scott Weiland Suffers Seizure On Plane

Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland suffered a seizure on a flight from Los Angeles to Miami.  The 41-year old singer's mild seizure forced an emergency landing at Dallas-Fort Worth airport.

A publicist for the singer said he is "doing great" and is expected to make his scheduled performance in Miami.  Weiland has had previous seizures.

Weiland had recently finished a string of shows with STP, the band he helped lead to multi-platinum success before internal tensions and a string of legal troubles related to a serious drug addiction tore them apart.  The band reunited and parted again.  Weiland then joined up with former Guns 'N' Roses bandmembers in Velvet Revolver, making two records and touring extensively.  Internal tensions led to Weiland's departure from VR and he resumed his solo career and reunited with STP. 

Weiland was traveling with members of 'The Scott Weiland Band,' touring with him in support of his Happy in Galoshes CD, released last year.  He is also scheduled to make a promotional appearance on behalf of a new fashion line his is introducing.
