During the exchange, which was held in advance of the singer's jail sentence for a November 2007 drunk driving charge (for which he ultimately only served six hours in a Van Nuys lockup), Scott took a cue from Lou "what are you, a f---ing asshole?" Reed. Here's how it went down:
Lee: "How disruptive has it been on band unity to have you going to serve jail time just before reuniting onstage for the first time in five years?"
Weiland: [Spits huge green loogie on the wall that drips down just behind bassist Robert DeLeo and his brother, guitarist Dean DeLeo, who, it must be noted, plays it off like nothing had happened.]
Lee: "Where's your head at right now just before going to jail?"
Weiland: "All these questions are ..., man. Who do you interview? To what level?"
Lee: "A lot of famous musicians. Not Michael Jackson-famous, though."
Weiland: "Do you interview Keith Richards? David Bowie? Do you interview people who over a 20-year career who aren't ... born-again Christians? Who aren't part of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir?"
Lee: "Um, yes. A lot of those guys. I interviewed Bowie but not Keith."
Weiland: "Then you should know. Our contribution is music, you know? This is the problem with the press. Are you part of the paparazzi?"
Lee: "I write for the Los Angeles Times."
Weiland: "Is there a difference anymore?"
Lee: "Well, the paparazzi don't write. They take pictures."
Weiland: "I'm not so sure, man. Rolling Stone is borderline these days."
Lee: "If I've said something that put your nose out of joint, I apologize."
Weiland: "My nose isn't out of joint. I live my life the way I live my life. I don't have to make any apologies. I just find it a little hilarious that you'd ask such a question.
Cccchh-www-thhsptttt [Weiland again spits on the wall]."
