Scott Weiland's feud with his former Stone Temple Pilots bandmates seems to be getting uglier by the minute. After learning he had been replaced in STP by Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington and being slapped with a lawsuit by the band's three other founding members, Weiland has filed a multimillion dollar countersuit.
As previously reported, Stone Temple Pilots recently filed a lawsuit against their former singer Scott Weiland, while Weiland has responded with a few harsh comments about the band's decision to continuing on under the STP name with Linkin Park's Chester Bennington as their new singer. Now, Stone Temple Pilots are attempting to explain their reasons for taking legal action against their former frontman.
Scott Weiland is now speaking about some of the issues that have led to the current problems between himself and Stone Temple Pilots' members, who are now continuing under the STP band name with Chester Bennington as their vocalist. He points to differing viewpoints in how to promote the band as being at the base of their issues.
Stone Temple Pilots took legal action against their former frontman Scott Weiland on Friday (May 24) and now additional details of the suit have come to light. The group claimed that Weiland attempted to sabotage their 20th Anniversary tour as well as their plans to continue their livelihood with Linkin Park's Chester Bennington as their frontman and they've asked for a court ruling to stop Weiland's interference with their career.
Stone Temple Pilots apparently fired frontman Scott Weiland earlier this year and now the band has filed a lawsuit against the singer, claiming that he plotted to sabotage their 20th anniversary tour, among other accusations.
Many music fans were surprised last weekend when Stone Temple Pilots not only played a secret gig with Linkin Park's Chester Bennington as their new singer at the KROQ Weenie Roast in Los Angeles, but also released a new song called 'Out of Time.' But perhaps no one was more surprised than original STP frontman Scott Weiland, who was apparently fired from the band earlier this year.
Stone Temple Pilots recently parted ways with singer Scott Weiland (again), leaving a vacant spot center stage that needed to be filled. In an unexpected twist, Stone Temple Pilots stunned an Irvine, Calif., crowd as Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington took the stage with STP to perform an eight-song set Saturday night at KROQ's Weenie Roast. The collaboration would be exciting enough simply as a one-off, but as reported in a new interview, it looks like Bennington will act as Stone Temple Pilots' new full-time singer.
Stone Temple Pilots recently recruited Chester Bennington of Linkin Park to record a new song and to be their part-time singer. One question that I wondered after I checked out the teaser of the song we posted on our site, was how Chester was going to sound singing old school STP songs that fans have come to know and love. Well, now we know with a new video that was uploaded on YouTube.
