Stone Temple Pilots fire lead singer
 
STONE TEMPLE PILOTS
FIRE Lead Singer
Scott Weiland
BREAKING NEWS
Stone Temple Pilots has unceremoniously FIRED its lead singer Scott Weiland ... who's been the face of the seminal rock band for 20 years.

The group released an ominously curt statement today, saying, "Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland." They don't give any further explanation.

It's pretty shocking for several reasons ... the main being Weiland has been a core member of the group since it came together in 1986. His voice has become synonymous with STP's sound ... on hits like "Plush," "Sour Girl," and "Sex Type Thing."

Another reason this came out of nowhere ... Weiland denied rumors he was leaving the band just yesterday, telling Rolling Stone, "STP has not broken up. I haven't quit. I haven't been fired."

Rumors of a split began a couple of months ago when Slash said STP had fired Weiland.

STP reformed in 2008 after a 5-year hiatus and toured through last year -- but apparently it hasn't been working out.

So far, it's unclear who STP has in mind to replace Weiland ... if anyone.

Weiland is set to launch a solo tour next month.

Probably because he can't stay off the smack.

Deberg_1990 02-27-2013 10:55 AM

I must be out of the loop...i didn't even know that he was back with them.

Stone Temple Pilots is WORTHLESS WITHOUT HIM.

They may as well just break up and go form a new band. Christ.

It's too bad, but dude has always had problems.

Deberg_1990 02-27-2013 12:18 PM

Are there any bands left from that era that are together still and making hit songs?


Seems like the flameout rate is large for alot of those early to mid 90s bands..

jd1020 02-27-2013 12:22 PM

Now he has time to do Velvet Revolver.

All good.

WhiteWhale 02-27-2013 12:25 PM

Good luck with that.

They'll be buying him smack to get him back making them money in a few years just like they always do.

I'm not sure how to respond to this...

Most bands don't last 20+ years without MAJOR lineup changes. They never really have. A lot of the individuals from those bands are still pretty prominent.

Depends on your definition of "together."

I thought AIC's "Black Gives Way To Blue" album was pretty ****ing awesome. They've got a new lead singer, for obvious reasons, but he took a back seat for that album and it was mostly Cantrell singing.
