As previously reported Stone Temple Pilots announced that they had “terminated” frontman Scott Weiland.
Hours after news of his dismissal, Weiland released his own statement.
“I learned of my supposed ‘termination’ from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press,” he said. “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.”
Weiland’s solo tour starts Friday in Flint, Michigan and the singer will reportedly be performing songs from Stone Temple Pilots’ first two albums, Core and Purple.
