STP Explains Weiland Lawsuit

Stone Temple Pilots issued a statement late last week explaining why they have launched legal action against their former singer, Scott Weiland. After firing him earlier this year, the band filed a lawsuit claiming that Weiland’s erratic performances, late arrivals for shows and struggles with addiction had harmed their career. The group said in the statement, “Our purpose in taking this action is not to hurt Scott. We want to move forward productively, and Scott’s choices and actions have prevented us from doing that . . . It was beyond time we made some new music, which was impossible in the dysfunctional environment we were in. We’ve lived in it long enough and have decided to move forward with STP. We wish Scott well.”

The band has teamed up with Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington, debuting the new lineup and a new song called “Out Of Time” last month at a California radio festival. The statement said, “We’re really excited about the new music we’ve been making with Chester, including the song we just released, ‘Out Of Time.'”
The statement concluded, “We love this band and respect everything it means to you. We want to always give you our best and the choice we made is completely in that spirit.”
Weiland told AZCentral last week that his former bandmates were “selfish” and “disrespectful.”
