Scott Weiland: “STP lied about firing me to boost ticket sales”
Stone Temple Pilots LIED about firing singer Scott Weiland as a publicity stunt, according to Scott. He insists the band is still 100% together.
Weiland said, "STP is not broken up. It's a whole thing to try to boost ticket sales."
The way Weiland explains it sounds like the rest of STP used the "firing" to boost ticket sales for a tour they were organizing WITHOUT him.
Weiland says there's a clause in the band's contract that forbids the members from using the name STP on another group. In other words, if Scott's out, STP ceases to exist.
When asked if he's still leading the band, Weiland said: "I started it."
