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. READ MORE
In a statement on their official Facebook page, rock group Stone Temple Pilots have announced that they have “officially terminated” singer Scott Weiland. There is no further information at this time.
STP’s last album was their 2010 release Stone Temple Pilots. Weiland released a solo album in 2011 entitled The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year, which was a Christmas compilation album.
Weiland had long been saying that he was once again the lead singer of rock group Velvet Revolver, but those claims were constantly denied by guitarist Slash. READ MORE
Yesterday I wrote up an article regarding Scott Weiland’s comments that he’d rejoined Velvet Revolver as singer of the band. While it’s true that Weiland made those comments, turns out they might not be 100% accurate to another rather important person who has a small say in the matter. Who is that you might ask? Well, how about Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash? Seems like the guitar legend heard nothing about this and has stated that Weiland is, in fact, “…out of his mind.”
Now, as I mentioned in the previous, now erroneous, article, I wasn’t at all thrilled to hear that Weiland had rejoined VR. So hearing that this isn’t the case is just a joyous moment for me. Now I just hope that a singer is selected sometime before peace in the Middle East occurs. Is that too much to ask? READ MORE
If you’ve been waiting for some new Stone Temple Pilots since 2001′s Shangri-La Dee Da, we’ve got some good news for you. Scott Weiland caught up with Spinner “We’re almost finished,” he said of the eagerly awaited Don Was-produced album. “There will probably be 11 songs on the record and we have nine completed already. Then you have to have B-sides for Japan, the UK and the rest of Europe, so we’ll probably record 14 songs total.”
He also commented on the recording process and what it’s like to be back with his former band-mates. “It’s always been easy. We have a method that we use and it’s pretty basic,” Weiland says. “For the most part, Robert and Dean [DeLeo] write the instrumental riffs and then amongst the three of us we arrange the songs and then I write all the melodies and the lyrics.”
The new album is expected to release in 2010. READ MORE
