breaking news

0227-tmz-scott-weilandStone Temple Pilots front man Scott Weiland says he had NO IDEA his band was planning to fire him today ... but according to Scott, it doesn't matter ... because he can't be fired from a group HE created.

Scott just released a statement in response to STP's press release this morning -- in which the band claims they "officially terminated" Weiland from the group.

Scott said, "I learned of my supposed 'termination' from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press."

He added, "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."

Sh*t just got real.

I saw STP over the summer. More than half of the crowd left during his performance.... Just give up and retire already.

Scott you are S.O.L. Buddy they Fired Geoff Tate from his own band, fired Tracii Guns from his own band. It is my understanding if you formed the group and signed a record deal, than "your" band belongs to the record co. You become an employee of the record company. As Trumph would say... " Scott... Your Fired"

Slash eluded to this weeks ago when Scott started spreading rumors about Velvet Revolver getting back together. He specifically used the words "fired" from STP. Scott has had to know this has been coming for some time thanks to the media alone! Robert and Dean have no tolerance for his never-ending string of drug abuse and won't be part of it. Unfortunately this means STP is done as well, but a little public shaming is probably only a fraction of the betrayal they've felt time and time again. Too bad.

He's had at least his share of problems, but unlike LiLo he owns up to his. If you're a STP fan you know it really isn't the same without SW. If your lead singer has problems enough to boot him you need to disband & regroup else where. Really not STP with out him i/m/o.
