In a one-sentence news release Wednesday, publicist Kymm Britton said: “Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland.” No other information was provided. The Associated Press was attempting to reach Weiland for comment but to no avail. The band’s 1992 debut, “Core,” has sold more than 8 million units in the United States. Their hits include “Vasoline,” ”Interstate Love Song” and “Plush,” which won a Grammy in 1993 for best hard rock performance with vocal.
The last album by the group was a self titled one in 2010. Weiland has battled drug addiction since the beginning of his career. We’ll keep you posted if a reason comes out as to why the band decided to part ways with their front man. It’s all speculation at this point and we’d rather not start a rumor mill.
