Former Stone Temple Pilots
frontman Scott Weiland
reportedly named his current band the Wildabouts
as the most talented group of musicians he's ever shared the stage with, putting the gang above his ex-band.
According to Below Empty report (via Alternative Nation
), during the entire recent New York concert, "Scott made a few digs at the guys from STP by saying that the Wildabouts are the best band he's ever played with. He also said they are the most talented."
Same source indicates that the frontman told the crowd several times how it's rather difficult to find good friends in life, stressing he is lucky to be with The Wildabouts.
Speaking of Weiland's New York performance, the singer was in fact a whole hour late for his August 11 show in Huntington, Long Island. Not only that, but the concert was reportedly a flop, as the Examiner
reporter described the Scott's singing as nothing short of horrid.
"Scott Weiland took the stage almost an hour late and he gave a lackluster performance throughout the evening,"
the report reads. "Most of his vocals were off-key, pitchy and horrid. Scott seemed to be doing his own little show, thus losing complete touch with reality. The majority of his fans left half-way through his set."
The reporter even went far enough to call the opening acts far more talented and enjoyable to watch or hear, giving the concert an overall negative review.
Weiland is currently busy with his Purple to the Core tour, as the remaining set of live dates will keep him out on the US road until the end of August.
