Scott Weiland Comments On His “Termination” From Stone Temple Pilots

Scott Weiland


We reported on the surprise statement that grunge act Stone Temple Pilots sent out to the press regarding front man Scott Weiland’s role in the band, or as of yesterday, a lack thereof.

But it sounds like news of Weiland’s firing from STP was a surprise even to the singer himself. Shortly after word of his termination broke, Weiland put out his own statement through one of his representatives.

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.

Well, I guess he’s taking this pretty well! Yeah, he sounds upset, but the passive aggression is understandable in the wake of something like this. And he’s starting a solo tour this week huh? Admirable that Weiland isn’t letting this detour his other ongoing projects.

Will continue to follow this as it develops.

    Sounds like a stunt to sell solo tour tix…

    Weiland said as much regarding STP. Maybe count it as a win-win for both?
