In 1998, Weiland began his solo run with 12 Bar Blues followed a decade later by the stylistically diverse “Happy” in Galoshes and then two albums in 2011, A Compilation of Scott Weiland Covers (which he described as his version of David Bowie’s Pin-Ups) and the holiday themed The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, which now appear to be the final two missives in Weiland’s solo catalog.
