Stone Temple Pilots

This morning a press release went out that Scott Weiland has been "terminated" from Stone Temple Pilots. To that Scott says:

SCOTT WEILAND STATEMENT ON STONE TEMPLE PILOTS:

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.

- Scott Weiland
Ironically, Scott's "solo" tour, which hits NYC, NJ and PA in March has him "Celebrating STP Core and Purple in their entirety".

Nirvana sucked live. Grohl on the drums was the only good thing about their performances. Always sloppy.

I wasn't going to go to the Weiland solo tour, but now I am. Great PR move!

Posted by Eddie Vedder | February 27, 2013 4:02 PM

Silverchair is actually a great band. Their music has evolved quite well over the years, and they are HUGE in Australia.

Nirvana can suck it.

Interesting that the announcement was made just before the start of his tour.

Hey Weiland, congratulations on being a total mess for 20 years. Hilarious that this "news" is surprising to you.

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2013 5:18 PM

I never got why people liked STP in the first place. They were obviously derivative of all the other crap that was out in the 90's.

The stories I have of friendship, love, belonging, discovering amazing

STP were merely a PJ rip-off. The trend of NOBODY willing to work with Scott speaks volumes about him. His ego and addictions and rock star behavior must be intolerable.

FUCK STP. When they came out they were nothing special. The expectations for VR were set so high right off the bat I don't think any one could've met them let alone exceed them.

What's with all these 90's bands and cashing in?

Posted by Jeff | October 12, 2013 4:44 PM

so STP now has Linkin Park's singer? Well, two shitty bands who deserve eachother have merged. Man, didn't think STP could suck even more.

Posted by Anonymous | October 12, 2013 4:58 PM

I want Scott Weiland back with STP and Chester back in Linkin Park. I want more gruge music better then Core and Purple from Scott Weiland and STP. This sound should live on and on and on.

I want Chester Charlie back in the Army
