Scott Weiland to Pen Autobiography

Joining the ranks of many musicians, including The Heroin Diaries scribe Nikki Sixx, as well as Velvet Revolver bandmate and axe guru Slash, alt-rock statesman Scott Weiland has inked a publishing deal to write an autobiography, but his eventful rock'n'roll lifestyle has begun to overwhelm his effort towards the book. "It's a weird thing," the Velvet Revolver frontman said backstage at the American Music Awards. "You make a lot of records, write a lot of songs, but all of a sudden you go into a whole different vein, and it's a little bit scary to dive into."

According to, Weiland, 40, will collaborate on the book with David Ritz, author of the lyrics to Marvin Gaye's tune "Sexual Healing," who has also co-written autobiographies for Gaye, Aretha Franklin, and Ray Charles, among others. He did not reveal the name of the publisher. But Slash, present during the interview, had a little advice for Weiland and his new project: "Just jump in, and once you get going you can't stop."
