Stone Temple Pilots fires singer Scott Weiland

Scott Weiland
Now this is just bizarre!Rockers Stone Temple Pilots have dumped their singer Scott Weiland. reports that the band, in a one-paragraph statement published on the Stone Temple Pilots website, 'Stone Temple Pilots have announced they terminated Scott Weiland. No further information is available at this time'. Scott reacted by saying on Facebook: I learned of my supposed 'termination' from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press. Not sure how I can be 'terminated' from a band that I founded, fronted and co-wrote many of its biggest hits, but that's something for the lawyers to figure out. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing all of my fans on my solo tour which starts this Friday'." Scott founded Stone Temple Pilots with the DeDeo brothers Robert and Dean and drummer Eric Kretz in 1986 but they split in 2003 because of Scott's erratic behaviour due to drug abuse. The band reformed in 2008 and played a North American tour. A 6th album 'Stone Temple Pilots' was also released and debuted at no. 2 in America. Last year Stone Temple Pilots released the live DVD 'Alive In The Windy City'.
