SCOTT WEILAND’S CAMP DENIES HE WAS FIRED BY STONE TEMPLE PILOTS
I have spoken with somebody who works with Scott Weiland’s management, and they denied that Weiland has been fired by Stone Temple Pilots. Slash claimed yesterday that STP fired Weiland, which is why he is campaigning for a Velvet Revolver reunion in the press. An official statement may or may not be released later today by Weiland’s camp. I am still trying to find out about what the actual state of STP is. We won’t really know until they collectively release a statement. STP last performed two and a half months ago in Sacramento, California and are “on a break” according to Scott Weiland. The band have been unwilling to commit to recording a new album. The DeLeo brothers and Eric Kretz have yet to comment on the story.
