Scott Weiland On STP: 'I View Them As Family'
Ever since his firing from the Stone Temple Pilots last week, Scott Weiland has come up with a series of denials regarding the whole situation. At first he was clear about the band not being able to fire him as a founding member, claiming "no one's ever fired anybody in STP." Several days later, the vocalist said that the firing is just a publicity stunt meant to "boost ticket sales." And now he's going for a different approach once again. Although admitting that the band has problems at the moment, Weiland has once again stressed out that "nobody in the band can be fired." "There are some issues that have to be worked out with STP, but they're the same issues that have been going on since the end of the last tour. Nobody in the band can be fired. No one's ever fired anybody, and no one's ever quit the band," the singer tells Spin. "The he-said, they-said is something that has taken on its own life. Behind the scenes, it's really not anything different than what was going on before. STP really have been together a long time, and I'm proud of that. I really do like those guys, and it hurts my feelings when we aren't getting along, because I view them as family." Weiland is currently on the road with his solo band The Wildabouts as a part of the "Purple To The Core" US tour started on March 1, running through to a final date on March 29 in Austin, Texas. So the confusion continues. What do you think about the whole situation now? And don't you find it interesting that they apparently haven't even talked since the firing?
