Scott Weiland's plans to expand his current solo tour could be scuppered now his drummer Danny Thompson has quit.
Thompson won't elaborate on why he left the touring band this week, but strongly suggests he's not happy with being in the lineup:
"I have just officially QUIT the Scott Weiland solo band. Loved playing with the guys for seven years but it's a matter of self-worth. Not going to elaborate."
When a fan asked him to tell more about what happened, Thompson simply replied "the Darkness," according to Blabbermouth. It's the latest in a string of bad news for Weiland, the singer who was fired from Stone Temple Pilots in February. Weiland denied that he was really out of the band and insisted it was all a publicity trick to boost ticket sales - but then went on to book himself a solo tour and start recording a third solo album.
During his current solo tour, an incident took place where Weiland invited a fan to an on-stage fight, asking the onlooker to "come up and meet me one on one."
The next tour dates listed on Weiland's website start from May 29, so he'll probably have enough time to find a replacement drummer with a little luck.
