It turns out Jason Michael Hurley, the man who told police that he was Scott Weiland upon being arrested for possession of methamphetamine and burglary, actually impersonates the Stone Temple Pilots frontman for a living.
A posting on Hurley’s Facebook page (via Alternative Nation) suggests that Hurley fronts an STP tribute band called Stone Tempered Pilots. Apparently, the band was at one point set to participate in an STP tribute concert at the Roxy in Los Angeles.
In a separate posting, Hurley claimed to be friends with Dave Navarro, Goo Goo Dolls’ Johnny Rzeznik, and Puddle of Mudd’s Wes Scantlin (though he can’t spell any of their names correctly), often goes to Ozzy Osbourne’s house “with Sharon bitching in the background,” and once kissed Juliette Lewis. He also said he lives seven houses down from Wolfmother’s Andrew Stockdale and talks cars with ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons.
Below, see photos of Hurley performing with his STP tribute band (?) in concert and read the full Facebook posting about his various musician friends.
