Scott Weiland has not had the best relationship with his bandmates in Stone Temple Pilots. According to Yahoo News, it got worse because the band released a new announcement on Feb. 27 - Scott Weiland is fired.
This is the second time that Weiland has been fired from the Stone Temple Pilots. Weiland and bassist Robert DeLeo met in 1986 and the two joined up with Dean DeLeo and Eric Kretz to form the band. They hit it big in 1992 with "Core" and hit singles like "Sex Type Thing," "Plush," "Creep" and "Wicked Garden."
Weiland left the band after the release of "Purple" when he developed a serious heroin addiction. He returned in 1995 but ended up in jail for heroin possession. When he got out of jail, he rejoined Stone Temple Pilots again and the band continued to record together until 2002 when Weiland and Dean DeLeo had a falling out.
Weiland quickly rebounded and ended up in Velvet Revolver with former members of Guns 'n Roses, which was a good spot because he was able to work with another recovering addict in Duff McKagan. The band released two albums, but then Dean DeLeo approached Weiland and offered him a chance at a reunion tour with Stone Temple Pilots. This ended with Velvet Revolver kicking Weiland out of the band.
Stone Temple Pilots released a new album in 2010 with Weiland, but three years later, Scott Weiland was fired once again. While no reason has been given, looking at his past, it should come as no surprise. Weiland begins a tour with his solo band this Friday.
