After his firing from Stone Temple Pilots, it’s not hard to imagine that there may be a bit of bad blood between former STP frontman Scott Weiland and his estranged band. But how does Weiland feel about STP's newly recruited singer Chester Bennington?
There is so much going on with Stone Temple Pilots right now -- new singer (Chester Bennington), new EP, new tour dates, etc. -- that we were very lucky to catch up with the DeLeo brothers to discuss all of that. Hear our exclusive interview with Robert and Dean DeLeo here.
Scott Weiland's feud with his former Stone Temple Pilots bandmates seems to be getting uglier by the minute. After learning he had been replaced in STP by Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington and being slapped with a lawsuit by the band's three other founding members, Weiland has filed a multimillion dollar countersuit.
As previously reported, Stone Temple Pilots recently filed a lawsuit against their former singer Scott Weiland, while Weiland has responded with a few harsh comments about the band's decision to continuing on under the STP name with Linkin Park's Chester Bennington as their new singer. Now, Stone Temple Pilots are attempting to explain their reasons for taking legal action against their former frontman.
Scott Weiland is now speaking about some of the issues that have led to the current problems between himself and Stone Temple Pilots' members, who are now continuing under the STP band name with Chester Bennington as their vocalist. He points to differing viewpoints in how to promote the band as being at the base of their issues.
For those wondering about the future of Stone Temple Pilots without Scott Weiland, the first clue will come later this month when the DeLeo brothers and drummer Eric Kretz perform at the MusiCares MAP Fund benefit in Los Angeles. The trio is being advertised as 'Members of Stone Temple Pilots,' lending credence to the notion that they'll be able to continue utilizing the band name without worry.
Although Scott Weiland isn't happy with the recent announcement that he was fired from Stone Temple Pilots, he hoping there will be a reconciliation in the future. In a new interview with the Youngstown News' Vindicator, Weiland says that he feels his ousting was a "reactionary" decision and doesn't feel the door has closed on his time with the band.
Former Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland had an interesting weekend on his latest solo tour that included him challenging a heckling audience member to a fight in New York and some rather odd rants during a show in Washington, D.C.
This week has been a chaotic one for Stone Temple Pilots. Founding member and vocalist Scott Weiland was officially fired from the group, much to his surprise, leaving the DeLeo brothers and drummer Eric Kretz without a singer. However, in a new interview with TMZ, Weiland is insisting that he is still a member of Stone Temple Pilots, and that his firing was a publicity stunt to bring attention to the act.
