The surviving members of Velvet Revolver have issued a statement regarding the death of their former frontman, Scott Weiland. Guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan, drummer Matt Sorum and guitarist Dave Kushner jointly used the bass player's Facebook account to mourn the singer's passing.

"We are deeply saddened to learn of the loss of our old friend and bandmate, Scott Weiland," they wrote. "We experienced a good chunk of life with Scott and, even in his darkest times, we all had hope and love for him. His artistry will live on, of that, there is no doubt.

"Deepest condolences and sadness are for his children, Noah and Lucy," they continued. "We all travelled around this world together on tour; our band, wives, and kids and we grew to a big family that still remains to this day. It's just so sad and brutal from any perspective. Rest in peace, Scott."

Kushner had previously tweeted, "RIP Scott Weiland," shortly after midnight EST early Friday when news of the frontman's death broke.

Weiland, who was also the former singer for Stone Temple Pilots, died in his sleep Thursday while on a tour stop in Bloomington, Minnesota. His manager confirmed the news to Rolling Stone.

He had been supporting his recent solo LP, Blaster, which he recorded with his new backing group the Wildabouts. A cause of death has yet to be revealed. "At this time we ask that the privacy of Scott's family be respected," an official post on Weiland's Instagram, announcing his death, read.

I'm sorry Scott. You know.. I was trying to help.. You were mad at me when I went public with my comments on your addiction.. and pissed you off just to get you to hear.. I figured if I lost a friend in order to help him it was worth the risk.. I figured if the shoe were on the other foot.. maybe one day you could hit me back somehow if I went out. People think it was lame or a publicity stunt but all I wanted was for you to hear me, if not all of us.. Bless you Scott. I will learn from your mistakes. I will be sober because of you.. Your death won't be in vain.. Whenever I feel the temptation to use I will say too myself...
For Scott, not today.
-RP

I'm still trying to come to terms with this news even weeks after. So so sad. Scott gave me so much motivation and inspiration. It's going to be quite hard to get used to not reading and watching what he's doing next. I miss you a lot Scott, you were the best. X
