Scott Weiland isn't singing the jailhouse blues just yet.

The Stone Temple Pilots frontman, who was sentenced to eight days behind bars for a second DUI conviction on April 28, wrote an upbeat blog entry on his MySpace page just two days afterward.

"I've been crazy busy since coming off tour and never get the chance to sleep in anymore," Weiland wrote, adding that he's gearing up for a four-month tour this summer. Weiland, 40, does not mention that he has until May 28 to complete the jail term. He can turn himself in to a Los Angeles correctional facility anytime before that date.

The singer, however, does reveal some other projects he has in the works for the near future. "I have been working on my solo record, which will be a double album due for a November release," he writes. "I'm also in the process of writing my autobiography along with famed writer David Ritz, also due out toward the end of the year. It will be a collection of stories, experiences and lessons throughout my life."

Weiland has certainly had a colorful past, including a recent falling out with his former band, Velvet Revolver. On April 1, the band members announced they were splitting with Weiland, citing his "increasingly erratic" behavior.
