Scott Weiland-STP are ‘Rude & Disrespectful’

Former Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland has spoken out in his first interview since last week, when the band filed a lawsuit against him and announced Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington as their new vocalist. Speaking with AZCentral, Weiland said, “Is that how I want to see STP now? Not at all. Not the band that I started. Not the band that I named. Not the band that when I was in Huntington Beach, took a shot and called Robert DeLeo at his apartment, doing nothing in music, living with his girlfriend, and said, ‘Hey man, would you like to do a band?’”

Asked where things stand with him and his former bandmates, Weiland replied, “I don’t really think about it a lot. I think about how disrespectful they are, sometimes, in between a sip of coffee and a hit of my cigarette. I think about how selfish they are and how much it blows me away that after two times of trying this, they still think they have any opportunity of doing it without me.”

Weiland said that he and the rest of the band disagreed over how to handle their career, explaining, “I said, ‘Look, we need to take a break. We need to make an album. We’ve been playing the same (expletive) set for four years, without a change. We’ve been watching ourselves go from playing 20,000-seat arenas to country fairs and 2,000-seat casinos.’”
