Scott Weiland has endorsed Democrat Barack Obama's bid to become the next president of the United States.
The Stone Temple Pilots frontman said Mr Obama had the credentials to help reinvigorate America.
"Barack Obama is the leader, the listener and the visionary with international respect to take us from the depths of where we are today and bring us to a new place where dreams are made; that place is called America,” Weiland wrote on his blog.
"It's our imperfections and our willingness to persevere that makes us stronger."
