Stone Temple Pilots bassist Robert DeLeo has revealed he’s contracted COVID-19.

“Well, like so many others this virus has come to pay me a visit,” DeLeo writes in an Instagram post alongside a photo of him holding a rapid antigen test showing two pink lines, signifying a positive result.

“Yes, double lines…Jackpot!,” the post reads. “Except this time you don’t win anything but a nice chunk of time by yourself doing the ‘q’ word.”

“Omicron, Robotron, Lexicon, whatever they wanna call it, it’s the CRUD!” DeLeo adds. “A new year is upon us and I hope and pray everyone stays healthy and safe. Let’s all make this new year a positive and forward moving experience filled with everything we all love!”

STP’s 2022 plans include a tour of Australia kicking off in March.
