The band posted the following:
"Here we are. A year has passed since you've been gone.
We often think of you and are reminded of you daily with many memories.
Then there is the music the four of us carved out allowing us to listen and feel how brilliant you are.
There was a time when we looked up to one another.
Each of us wanting one another's approval.
The songs we wrote had to have complete impact on us in order for them to shine.
When it did... it was unearthly. Perhaps you are in a place now to better describe it.
We miss you Scott."
The former Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver frontman was 48 years old. He died of an accidental overdose and was found on his tour bus.
