Scott Weiland - Scott Weiland still wants to be Stone Temple Pilot

Scott Weiland still wants to play with Stone Temple Pilots.

The band released a statement - refuted by Scott - firing the singer at the end of February, but he is confident he will appear on stage with them again in the future.

He told Ohio's Youngstown News Vindicator newspaper: ''They've done it before, and they can do it again. They're good players, I respect them all.

''Every band has issues. I just think sometimes people say things before they really think about it. I know I've done that in the past''

When asked if he was finished working with the band, the vocalist said ''definitely not'' and explained he even has a plan for a new album.

He told the Cleveland Scene newspaper: ''If we're going to do something, we need to get back in the studio with [producer] Brendan O'Brien who has a track record with us and get re-inspired artistically again.

''We need to do it that way and get out there on the road and get out there with some excitement and not just turn our legacy into what Journey or Foreigner is.

''That's not what we're about. That's not why we got into this. That's not at all what I'm about.''

When the rest of the band - Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz - fired Scott, they released a statement simply saying: ''Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland.''

The band have since remained quiet about the split.
