Scott Weiland has spoken out about being fired earlier today from his grunge band the Stone Temple Pilots, and he is claiming that he can't be "officially terminated" according to Wednesday, Feb. 27 TMZ reports, because he created the group.
In response to the STP's earlier statement Weiland answered,
"I learned of my supposed 'termination' from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press," Weiland said in a statement. "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."
As previously reported, the Stone Temple Pilots made a shocking announcement stating that lead singer Scott Weiland had been "officially fired" from the group, without explanation.
Scott Weiland stated that his new solo tour kicks off on Friday in Flint, Michigan, and, as he recently told SPIN, he intends on performing songs from Stone Temple Pilots' first two albums, Core and Purple at all dates (he's even dubbed the jaunt "Purple at the Core").
Several media sites have reached out to the Stone Temple Pilots' rep seeking comment on the matter which have yet to be responded to.
It appears as if an ugly lawsuit and a lot of who said what is about to erupt between Scott Weiland and the band members of the Stone Temple Pilots, who do you believe will have the final say?
