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.

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.
After hearing Check My Brain on the radio I, too, bought the album when it came out. I guess I was expecting a new, edgy AIC album. It just seemed to be lacking something. I hardly ever listen to it any more.

Too much Beat Detective, which overly quantized the drums, too many layered amps (Friedman Marsha, Bogner Ecstasy and an old " First 500" Rectifier), lame, undistinguished bass tone and too much Eventide Harmonizer on the vocals, especially Duvall's tracks.

It was just lame. And the next album is just more of the same.

Oh, and the songs were well below average.

Consistent with what, exactly? Guys dying from heroin overdoses? Changing drummers every other year? Changing guitarists every album?

U2 released their first album in 1980. Their heyday was during the 80's, not the 90's.

Too fat.

Over the long haul I'd say Perl Jam and Nirvana/Foo Fighters were the best of the 90's...

I thought Chad Smith has been their drummer since the late '80s. Now it does seem that they have a new guitarists every album.

I grew up in the middle of the Mecca of grunge music. Figures too. Seattle has the highest suicide rate.

That said, it was ****ing awesome. But it's long gone, and did it's best to kill mainstream rock.

Um Californication with Kiedis writing amazing lyrics while getting loaded on heroin during the creative process was pretty damn good IMO. I think you are in the minority there.

And Pearl Jam still ****ing rocks so blow me.

If you guys are into AIC, check out Kill Devil Hill. Rex Brown from Pantera, Vinnie Appice from Sabbath and Dio, Dewey from Pissing Razors and Mark Zavon (badass mother****ing guitarist from Nebraska).

It's cool. The next record is even better. Check it.

How about the mere fact that Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic sold about 7 million records? The subsequent records sold even more.

Is that a good enough argument?
