Scott Weiland vs. STP
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."
