Scott Weiland, whose extraordinary career as the lead singer of the Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver was overshadowed by his unending battle with drug addiction, has died.

He was 48.

His manager, Tom Vitorino, confirmed his death, but he didn't disclose the cause.

Weiland was on tour with the band, The Wildabouts. Cocaine was found in his tour bus bedroom near his body, the Bloomington, Minnesota, police department said.

Another band member, Tommy Black, was arrested on suspicion of fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance, but has not been formally charged, police said. Authorities said cocaine was found in the area of the bus occupied by Black.

Deputy Chief Denis Otterness told CNN that authorities don't believe Weiland's death is connected to Black's possession case.

"There was nothing that appeared suspicious at the scene, and no evidence of foul play," he said.

In addition to the small quantity of cocaine discovered, police collected other evidence, but their news release didn't describe those items.

"Scott Weiland, best known as the lead singer for Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, passed away in his sleep while on a tour stop in Bloomington, Minnesota, with his band The Wildabouts," a statement on his Facebook page said. "At this time we ask that the privacy of Scott's family be respected."
