Scott Weiland announces new guitarist

Nick Maybury

Scott Weiland and The Wildabouts have announced the addition of guitarist Nick Maybury to the lineup following the passing of Jeremy Brown from undisclosed causes on March 30 at the age of 34.

Brown’s death came on the day Weiland and the group released their debut album, “Blaster.”

Maybury was a member of the Australian band Mink before he relocated to Los Angeles; he has since worked with Perry Farrell, Debbie Harry, Michele Branch, The Madden Brothers, the Sayers Club, Alice Cooper, the Veronicas and Dave Navarro, among others.

"Jeremy had big shoes and no one can fill them,” says Weiland. “He was my best friend and my collaborator. But we have to soldier on. Nick is an incredible player and is a great fit for the Wildabouts."

The group kick off a series of spring US dates this Saturday in Jacksonville, FL.

“I'm leaving for the road with Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts tomorrow,” posted Maybury. “Come out see a rock show this band kicks ass - honored to be a part of it.”
