According to SPIN.com Stone Temple Pilots have "fired" Scott Weiland from the band. Who knew or even cared he was still in the band. Don't get me wrong STP was fine in their day, but really at this point it really just doesn't matter. I guess it will give him more time to do another Christmas record. Fingers crossed!!! More info about this from SPIN.com below...if you care to read more about it.
"Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland." That's the entirety of an announcement from the alternative-rock band this morning. A spokeswoman said the band has no further comment at this time.
The announcement comes after Weiland said he would perform songs from the first two STP albums, 1992 debut Core and 1994's Purple, on an upcoming solo tour. Last year, Weiland said he would be playing Core in its entirety with STP on a fall tour that never happened. In other words, maybe we all should've read between the lines (your lie-hiiines).
The STP ouster isn't Weiland's first time being fired from a band. In 2008, Velvet Revolver acrimoniously ousted the singer. "The truth of the matter is that the band had not gotten along on multiple levels for some time," he said then. Weiland later reunited with Velvet Revolver for aone-off, four-song reunion set early last year.
