Stone Temple Pilots Fire Frontman Scott Weiland -
Stone Temple Pilots have now fired their turbulent frontman and founder Scott Weiland.
A statement released by the band read:
"Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland".
However, no reason was given for the 'termination' of the band's lead singer.
In a statement issued yesterday (February 27) to Rolling Stone, Weiland commented:
"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. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing all of my fans on my solo tour which starts this Friday."
Scott Weiland's own solo tour of North America starts on March 1 in Flint, Michigan.
