Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland and his wife, Mary, welcomed a daughter, Lucy Olivia, in Los Angeles on Saturday morning, according to the band’s management.
Lil’ Lucy, who weighed in at 7 lbs. 14 oz., is the couple’s second child. Her big brother, Noah Mercer, was born in November 2000.
Weiland will have time to play family man this summer before STP head into the studio to record their follow-up to Shangri-La Dee Da. The band has been racking up songs for the effort over the past year.
Stone Temple Pilots will appear at the San Diego Street Scene on September 6 and at the Harley Davidson Open Road Tour in Fontana, California, the following day. The three-day Fontana event will also feature a performance by the surviving members of the Doors, who plan to enlist Weiland to contribute vocals on their upcoming reunion album. The Cult’s Ian Astbury and Creed’s Scott Stapp are also expected to lend their voices to the project.
