Scott Weiland On His Stone Temple Pilots Replacement: ‘I Don’t Think Chester [Bennington] Did It In A Spiteful Way’
“I’ve known Chester for a long time. I got to be pretty close with him on the  Family Values Tour,” Weiland said. “I don’t think Chester did it in a spiteful way.”
“I don’t give a f*** what they call themselves, but it’s not Stone Temple Pilots.”
In an interview with the group backstage, guitarist Dean DeLeo revealed that communication with their recently-fired frontman had become impossibly difficult.
In an unexpected twist, rockers Stone Temple Pilots have filed a lawsuit against the band’s former lead singer, Scott Weiland.
And then, to add insult to injury, STP go and replace Scott with the emo-screamer dude from Linkin Park!
Rock stars have been getting arrested for as long as there have been rock stars, going back to Elvis Presley getting busted for assault in 1956 after an impromptu autograph session at a Memphis gas station.
The volatile and sometimes incoherent singer recently got into a verbal altercation with an audience member the other night…
When the Stone Temple Pilots terminated lead singer Scott Weiland with a single-sentence press release today (Wednesday February 27), they allegedly forgot to inform Weiland himself.
Whatta ya get Scott Weiland for Christmas?
STP are celebrating their 20 year milestone of “Core” by playin’ the record in it’s entirety on the road till the end of the year…anything that’ll keep Scott Weiland from recording another Christmas album. ANYTHING.
