Scott Weiland - a grown up?

Certainly, the former Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver frontman who's sporting dark brown hair these days has set limits for himself - in fashion anyway - after 46 often turbulent years on the planet.

“Electric red hair is more for like people in their ‘20s and early ‘30s that’s how I feel about it anyway,” said Weiland, who often favoured flaming red hair, first made fashionable by his favourite rocker David Bowie (“my ultimate style icon.”)

“It’s the same way I feel about leather pants. No leather pants anymore. You can’t be seen in your mid-’40s wearing leather pants.”

To recap an often complicated life, the thrice-married, father of two young teenagers has come to this grown up - at least on the outside - place after an eventful life to put it mildly.
