Scott Weiland, Stone Temple Pilots Frontman, Fired By Group In Press Release
Scott Weiland, who founded and fronted hard rock band Stone Temple Pilots, was fired from the group by the other band members Wednesday.
The Stone Temple pilots, founded in 1992, were a popular grunge band of the 90s. Their most popular hits include Grammy-winning "Plush," "Interstate Love Song" and "Vasoline." STP, as they’re commonly referred to, became one of the most commercially successful bands of the decade. After splitting in 2003, the band reunited in 2008 for a tour and went on to release a new self-titled album in 2010.
The statement from the band on Wednesday read: "Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland." No other details relating to his “termination” have been revealed.
Weiland had not known about the plot to remove him from the group. "I learned of my supposed `termination' from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press," he wrote in his own 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."
Scott Weiland will be kicking off on his solo tour with his band, The Wildabouts, on Friday, March 1. They’ll be playing songs off Stone Temple Pilot albums Purple and Core.
