    The guitarist for ex-"Stone Temple Pilots" singer Scott Weiland's new band died Monday, a day before the band's first album was released.

    Jeremy Brown, 34, who played in Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts, died unexpectedly at his home in Venice, Calif., stunning bandmates who had been waiting for him to show up for rehearsal, the frontman announced in a Facebook post.

    A cause of death hasn't been determined yet, The Los Angeles Times reported.

    In his statement, Weiland, 47, said he and the group's other members were at a rehearsal for a show celebrating the release of their new album, "Blaster," when Brown's family called to break the news.

    "I am in shock right now, everyone that knows him is devastated," Weiland wrote.

    "It is a terrible loss that goes beyond words. He is one of my best friends, a truest friend and one of the most gifted guitar players that I've ever known."

    According to Rolling Stone, the former Velvet Revolver frontman and Brown hooked up around seven years ago while the singer was recording his second solo record, "'Happy' in Galoshes" in 2008.

    Along with bassist Tommy Black and drummer Danny Thompson, the band backed Weiland during his "Purple at the Core" tour, which has the singer performing songs from the first two STP albums.

    Weiland called Brown "a true genius" and asked fans to keep his wife and family in their thoughts.

    "It's impossible to explain how much he will be missed and what a hole this will leave in our hearts," the singer said.

    "A post on Facebook feels so trite and small compared to the love that I have for him and for the talent that has passed on but I felt it was necessary to at least start here."

    According to The L.A. Times, Brown grew up in Minnesota and Colorado and had been living and playing music in Los Angeles for the past 15 years.

    They were supposed to be doing one of those shitty concerts on one of the Stern channels this week too.

    I sure hope that doesn't get canceled.

    Who would have thought that Scott Weiland would outlive any of his band members?

    I thought when they sign away their soul at the crossroads talent, part of the deal is they will also get rich and famous before their ticket is punched, this guy was ripped off!
