Scott Weiland Thought He Was Still in Stone Temple Pilots, Until He Turned on His Computer

Scott Weiland angryI can’t even remember how many times Stone Temple Pilots have broken up and gotten back together since the 90’s, when I bought a worn-out, nicotine-smelling cassette tape of Core.

I know you think it’s because of drugs, and I’m sure it partially is, but it’s also been said that Scott is a huge diva narcissist who never shows up anywhere on time…

Most recently, the three vocally challenged Pilot members wrote that they had “officially” fired Weiland on their website, just one day after he insisted the rumors of a break-up were “all hearsay.”

Weiland responded with a statement of his own, revealing that he didn’t know what had happened until he read about it in the news on Feb. 27. 

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.

It’s true that they can’t tour successfully without him, but unfair to assume that they can’t survive. They’ll probably just go back to Talk Show like they did in 1997. Or they could hire Chris Cornell.

  1. I liked the first STP album over all the others. Scott had the best voice in the first album. It was deep, commanding and had super energy. 2nd was okay but seemed a bit flat at times compared to the first. It didn’t sound like the Scott I heard from the first. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it.
