Music channel VH1 is breathing new life into its former signature series Behind The Music - by delving into the background of Scott Weiland.
Network bosses have decided it's time for the popular series to return to the small screen. Troubled former VELVET REVOLVER frontman Scott Weiland (STONE TEMPLE PILOTS) have signed up to allow the channel to tell their stories for the forthcoming comeback run.
The show's format looks into the early lives of popular music stars, the rise to fame, as well as their professional and personal struggles.
Friends and family are interviewed in the show to give greater insight.
And Jeff Olde, VH1 executive vice president, is adamant it's the right time for the show's return - insisting there are so many new and intriguing artists people want to know more about.
He says, "It felt like the time is right. There's all sorts of new artists on the scene who have emerged and have these great stories. And there's other artists that we always wanted to do the first time around." The show ran regular shows from 1997 to 2002, then cut broadcasting back until it was completely scrapped in 2006.
