Scott Weiland

Stone Temple Pilots

BETRAYED ME!

Scott Weiland
says he wants millions of dollars as a fabulous parting gift from the lackeys in Stone Temple Pilots who conspired to boot him from the group.

TMZ broke the story ... STP sued Weiland, claiming he sabotaged its 20th anniversary tour by being chronically late for performances, missing promotional gigs and improperly using STP's name to promote his solo career.

Weiland has now filed a countersuit, accusing the 3 other members of secretly plotting his ouster.  Weiland says it's particularly galling, rhetorically asking, "How do you expel a man from the band that he started, named, sang lead on every song, wrote the lyrics, and was the face of for twenty years?"

Weiland now wants to thwart the efforts of the remaining members to grab the STP name, asking that a judge formally dissolve the band partnership.

Weiland also wants a minimum of $7 mil in damages.

Scott is talented and made them what they were/are, but he must be hell to deal with. Drug addicts are selfish people and everything revolves around them. He needs to just stop.

Very sad. STP is one of the greatest bands ever. And I missed my last opportunity to see them in Atlantic City recently!

Scott IS STP I like Chester Bennington in Linkin Park but Chester has some past drug/alcohol issues himself why try selling fans you're STP when clearly you're not without Scott?

Scott is a junkie and made it impossible for them to tour for years. He's the only reason they weren't more popular. He ruined the band YEARS ago. The other guys would be better off starting a different band, as STP has a pretty horrible reputation when it comes to reliability and what their singer sounds like live.

I'm sad when I think of all the years and music we have missed by his "drug" issues. This man's voice is awesome.

STP IS Scott Weiland....PERIOD. I understand how the band wants to continue and make some $$. But they need to just deal with Scott and make it work somehow. They can't just try to STEAL the entire name & everything that goes with it! GL Scott...YOU STILL RULE. WE ALL HAVE DEMONS BRO!!
