Earlier today it was reported that Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland had been effectively terminated from the band. While no further details were given, there was no wiggle room and the message was very clear. However, Weiland has released his own statement where he says that he’s “…not sure how I can be terminated from a band that I founded…”. The full statement can be read below.
“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.”
