Stone Temple Pilots Fire Scott Weiland

Scott Weiland, lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots, was just fired by his own band. That’s pretty funny and brightens my day. It gets better:

By apparent coincidence, Rolling Stone spoke with Scott Weiland late yesterday and he denied all rumors that he had been fired from the band. “STP has not broken up,” he said.  “I haven’t quit. I haven’t been fired.”

That’s hilarious! This is like The Office funny. Oh my God, he released a statement just now, it gets even funnier:

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.

Hahahaha! “Oh, you’re such a jerk, Catherine St. Ives, what did Stone Pilot Man ever do to you?” Nothing. He did nothing to me. I don’t even listen to this band. I’m just having a bad day and hearing about a rockstar getting fired makes me happy. He’s going to be fine. He can tour solo or get back with his supergroup Velvet Revolver (although they already fired him once before) or just make a suit out of money. Also, if you google “Scott Weiland douche” you’ll find pages and pages of affirmation.

Stone Temple Pilots is an “alternative rock” band from San Diego, California. They formed in 1986 and played until 2003. Then in 2008 Weiland got them back together. Their biggest hits include Interstate Love Song (that’s the one that’s popular on Guitar Hero where he sings, “Waaaitttn on a shunnndaaay afternoooon [unintelligible] you lieieedd”) and Plush which sounds kind of similar.


Big hugs to Rolling Stone for proving these heartwarming quotes.

  • That’s HYSTERICAL!! I like that band even more than a second ago when my last recall of them was in the “Vaseline” days (Great Song!) Thanks for posting. I loved the old staff here and I’m loving the new staff too!

    • Thank you very much!! Really appreciate it. I’m just waiting now for all the comments about how mean I am and how much I suck and how I am ruining the Internet. And then I will cackle and drink a martini.

  • Well, I LOVE(D) STP, but Scott and his endless bouts of drug addictions coupled with being an ass-hole MIGHT have had something to do with them kicking him out. He was one of the best front-men and had one of the best (distinctive) voices and stage charisma of anyone else in that era, so that’s probably why he was put up with for so long. The same thing happened to Brian Jones of the Stones. He was a founding member but he became such a stoned jerk-off that he was kicked out…subsequently to drown in his swimming pool. Hope Scott learns an object lesson from that.

    • I honestly can’t believe he’s still alive. I think he pickled his insides or something.

  • Aw man, he’s such a fuck up! Sad. But I love him. Well the band anyway – it’s all about the other 3 when it comes to talent. I listen to them weekly, what can I say? Their 2nd album Purple is the jaaaaam. It’s true though, he’s blown it time & time again so he deserves the boot. Clean up or shut up, scAWtt!! Jayzus…
