Scott Weiland And Stone Temple Pilots Part Ways
February 27, 2013 at 8:19 AM (PT)
Lead singer SCOTT WEILAND is no longer a member of STONE TEMPLE PILOTS.
The group announced the decision this morning in a press release that simply read, "STONE TEMPLE PILOTS have announced they have officially terminated SCOTT WEILAND."
There's no word if they plan on carrying on with a new vocalist.
SCOTT WEILAND responded by issuing this statement:
"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."
