Stone Temple Pilots Fire Scott Weiland
Stone Temple Pilots have fired singer Scott Weiland - and the first he heard about it was through the press. The band didn't give a reason for his departure, with their short statement simply reading: "Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland." If at first glance the word "terminated" sounds a bit extreme, don't worry; Scott is alive and well, and quickly posted a statement of his own (via NME): "I learned of my supposed 'termination' from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press. Not sure how I can be 'terminated' from a band that I founded, fronted and co-wrote many of its biggest hits, but that's something for the lawyers to figure out. "In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing all of my fans on my solo tour which starts this Friday." It's not the first time Weiland has been out of the band which he helped form in the mid-80s. In the 90s the band went on hiatus, and later Weiland went to jail for heroin possession while experimenting with a solo project. They reformed, but be 2002 they officially split - and then reformed again in 2008 once Weiland had been booted from rock supergroup Velvet Revolver. Perhaps Weiland's false claims that he was destined to reunite with Velvet Revolver in November last year were prompted by difficulties in Stone Temple Pilots. It proved to be BS; Slash responded by saying "Scott is completely speaking out of his a-s."
