SCOTT WEILAND FIRED BY STONE TEMPLE PILOTS

Stone Temple Pilots
After months of speculation, Stone Temple Pilots confirmed on Wednesday that they have fired frontman Scott Weiland, but the singer is not taking the firing sitting down and plans to take legal action.

The band did not provide any details about their decision; they simply issued the following statement: "Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland."

A short time later, Weiland issued this response: "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."

It was Weiland's former Velvet Revolver bandmate Slash who said in December that the singer had been fired by STP. When he was asked about Weiland's comments about a Velvet Revolver reunion being discussed, Slash said "That's because he got fired from STP."
