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.

Slash will never work with him again, so no.

Hit songs?

Yeah, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and a few others. Grunge was a fad that lasted only a few years because the music and lyrics were so depressing. There's not much market for that anymore.

Actually, this is untrue. William did not take a "back seat" and sang on every track. But that said, the "reformed" AIC (which is missing Mike Starr and Layne Staley, both of whom are dead) is nothing more than a Jerry Cantrell solo project with another singer that kind of sounds like Layne.

I thought the album sucked and the tracks I've heard from the next album suck as well.

No, you're missing the point: Grunge had it's tiny window and it closed rather quickly. Yet, you can name bands from the 70's and 80's that are still out on the road, putting out albums and having tons of success.

Grunge was truly a fad.

He sang lead on only 1 song, if I'm not mistaken. If that's not a "back seat" for a claimed "lead vocalist" then I don't know what is.

Yes, you are VERY mistaken.

JFC, that's ridiculous.

Pearl Jam is reportedly halfway done recording their next CD. Counting Crows just put out a CD of mostly covers about a year ago. U2 has become annoying, but they are pretty huge every time they put out a CD. RHCP have been pretty consistent. Ben ****ing Folds is still putting out great music.

Ironically, Grunge was every bit as faddish as Hair Metal.

Here's small snippet of a review of the album...

Quote:
In the words of guitarist/vocalist/band leader Jerry Cantrell, the disc has a “bunch of dark, slow, creepy tunes,” and the mood is set appropriately on the crawling opener “All Secrets Known.” As he does on most of the album, Cantrell handles lead vocal duties; in fact, William DuVall, who stepped in for Staley when the band reformed in 2006, is barely audible. Song two, “Check My Brain,” a more up-tempo number powered by Cantrell’s deep, bending riff, features Cantrell and DuVall harmonizing in a way that recalls vintage Alice. It’s not until track three, “Last of My Kind,” that DuVall takes center stage and shows he is doing a lot more than playing the role of Layne Staley. His vocals are full of fire and personality, virtually leaping out of the speakers—backed by a powerful sonic assault that makes one wonder why Alice got stuck with the grunge label early in its career.

I don't give a **** about the review. I own the record, know the producer and can tell the difference (clearly) between Jerry's voice and William's voice.

To say that William took a backseat is just outright stupid.

You aren't the only one who owns the record.

I didn't need to look up a review to know that Cantrell's vocals dominate that album.

Hey, Dipshit, go back and re-read my post: I stated that it was nothing more than a Jerry Cantrell solo project.

But to claim that William took a backseat, especially when he co-wrote many of the songs, is just plain ****ing stupid.

Like you.

I wish I could find my cover for the album but I'm betting I could count the songs credited with DuVall as a co-writer with 3 fingers or less.

Saw STP live a couple years ago when they reunited, and they were surprisingly good. I'd heard stories of how they sucked lived, but they killed that night. Tons of energy, and played all their best stuff to perfection.

AIC last album lacked in two areas for me, inspired song writting (some of the lyrics and melodies were painfully bad), and their signature rhythms. As bass player I admire Mike Inez, but he and the drummer mailed in their performances. Instead of their simple groove with a hint of tribal-esque. beats they played straight boring rhythms. It just wasn't AIC for me.
