So yesterday we told you that Stone Temple Pilots announced they fired their singer Scott Weiland. Well, apparently, no one told Scott because, according to him, he found out the way the rest of us did: “I learned of my supposed ‘termination’ from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press.”
What’s just as interesting is the question I posed regarding STP minus Weiland: Can STP be STP without him? Weiland himself wonders the same thing: “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.”
I guess we’ll have to wait and see. In the meantime, Weiland’s doing a solo tour which starts Friday. It’s pretty much the only thing he’s got going on since he was also fired from Velvet Revolver.
