STONE TEMPLE PILOTS/ex-VELVET REVOLVER singer Scott Weiland in two short "Rock The Vote" clips in which he encourages people to go out nad vote on November 4. Watch the videos below.Weiland recently issued a lengthy statement announcing his support for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. After a long discourse on American values and what it means to be a patriot, Weiland writes, "We need a leader to lead us back to our country's moral principles, a leader who has the creative courage to take us forward into the future and into a better place ... After looking at all that's wrong with the economy, world politics, education, and other problems that will test our new president, I don't see John McCain as the renegade and patriot he claims to be. Instead, I see Barack Obama as the patriot, that man, that president who is ready to lead, and who can and will." Weiland asks readers to "please act, please be involved," no matter who they vote for. Part 1:
