Scott Weiland 'Terminated' From Stone Temple Pilots - Confirmed In Brief PR Mail

When Stone Temple Pilots issued a statement to say that they have “terminated” their erstwhile singer Scott Weiland, we feared the worst. Clearly, we have been watching too many action movies. They may have killed his dreams but Weiland, it appears, is alive and well, though his band no longer want him around, it seems. Their PR sent a brief email, received by MTV News, which read “Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland.” That was the entirety of the email, though their PR rep promised that further details will come soon, regarding the split.

This isn’t the first that we’ve heard of internal fractions within Stone Temple pilots though. Last year, Slash let slip that Scott had been fired by the band, after playing with him in Velvet Revolver. There had been no word from either Weiland or the remaining members of STP. Things have never been plain sailing for the alt-rockers, though. After their swift rise to fame in the 1990s with hits such as ‘Interstate Love Song’ and ‘Plush,’ they became one of the most influential bands associated with the grunge scene. In 2008, they put an end to a five year break, after they imploded amongst news of Weiland fighting wth the DeLeo brothers.

2010 saw the band release their first album in nine years but since then, the band have gone quiet, with Weiland announcing a new solo tour. Today’s news pretty much puts the kibosh on any thoughts of them getting back together. Watch this space for that ‘further news’ their rep has promised.
