Scott Weiland On His Stone Temple Pilots Status: “Nobody In The Band Can Be Fired”


‘Fired’ Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland has spoken with Spin about his current status in the band. Of the situation, which saw his bandmates allegedly fire him, Weiland said:

“There are some issues that have to be worked out with STP. But they’re the same issues that have been going on since the end of the last tour. Nobody in the band can be fired. No one’s ever fired anybody, and no one’s ever quit the band.”

He further went on to state:

“[STP] really have been together a long time, and I’m proud of that. I really do like those guys, and it hurts my feelings when we aren’t getting along, because I view them as family.”

His latest comments are of course a marked turn from his recent assertion that the move was “publicity stunt.”
