February 27th, 2013 - Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland - no further information is available at this time.

--------------------------------------------------

While I'm of the mindset that without Scott there is no STP, it'll be interesting to see how both sides proceed.

<sarcasm>Hopefully all that pesky touring wasn't cutting into his snorting time. </sarcasm>

I personally could not give a shit, didn't think they were bad but not my cup of tea.

LOL, Good luck STP, since your the sole reason I ever listened to that kind of music, and you just fired the only reason I ever did!

Per Scott Weiland:

 

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.

Same as Alice In Chains for me. A few decent songs but not really my cup of tea. No big loss.

Agree, for me you can add Soundgarden and Pearl Jam- few decent songs but not my thing at all !

I'm in agreement also.

I think Mr. Weilland is very talented. Perhaps is difficult to work with, like Axl Rose or Michael Schenker -- but he must have been "easier" than those two, since Velvet Revolver occurred and STP did re-form for a while.

 

Just sayin'...rather see STP than Bon Jovi in concert, any day of the week!

Anh, someone has to tell all these youngsters the truth.

 

If you'd rather see Bon Jovi "tearing it up" singing rockabilly songs with sugarland-- than see STP crunching through "Sex Type Thing", well....

I'm sorry to hear that.

Well, if you don't like the band(such as STP)then the choice would be Bon Jovi. I would rather see Bon Jovi singing their classics than STP singing their so called classics.

It's a toss-up. I kinda despise the modern day Bon Jovi so I'm not sure I would want to see them play anything since Keep The Faith. On the other hand, I hate most of STP's songs. There's a few that are okay.

I am no youngster, and I can tell you that not only are Bon Jovi still one of the best live shows, regardless of wether you like the newer stuff or not, but STP are a pile of miserable dogshit. And the worst thing about Velvet Revolver was the singer ... so why on earth would I wanna see STP live purely based on whatever age I am?

And as The Rocker says, you go and see what band you like, and for most people on this website, they are gonna pick Jovi over STP.

Asking me to pick between those two would be like asking "Which would you rather do, slam your nuts in a car door or set your hair on fire?"

 

Just sayin'. ;) Carry on.

Quoted for truth. 'Who Says You Can't Go Home' is probably the worst song BJ have recorded to date, but I'd watch them play that song repeatly for 3 hours over a 20min absolute best of set from STP.

    • Ya, when I saw the teaser on fuckbook, I was shocked…such a great surprise.  Hope it’s a great song!
    • Not stellar, but candidly waaaay better than I was expecting.
    • Not going to disagree with this. They've really not changed their sound much across their discography. Either you like it or you don't.
    • New single 'Apocalypse Blues' out tomorrow    
    • Not quite sure about this one. The new (?) songs are good and the re-works of the 'Riot Avenue' songs do sound better than the originals (there is a but coming). 'Sword And Stone' is okay but should have been left in Bonfire's very capable hands. This version pales significantly compared to that one.  Anyway, I guess the idea of the re-recordings is decent here. For the most part the production sounds better, but, there's a problem. And without being a sound guru, I'm not sure exactly what it is. There is what I believe is an issue with the treble area in the final sound, most noticeable in the first song. I don't know the exact way to explain this stuff, but the best way to describe it is that it sounds like a well produced album, at a really low bitrate. Instead of 320kbps it just sounds like it's coming through the speakers at 64kbps... even at a high bitrate. Irritating and something I can't shake, but there's good bits to it too.    
    • I loved this dude's first two post-Idol albums. It's pure pop rock, but I still absolutely love songs such as this; Sadly, for me, everything since those first two albums has been some kind of variation of a train wreck. The Quiet Riot stuff was a mess and this type of metal he's churning out now - I regret to say - is just painful to my ears. Lyrically, he may as well be singing about pasta on train tracks with a side of tree branch for all I can connect with it. Musically I find it really boring, and lyrically it's even worse.  I've actually got the hard copies of first two CDs in my garage but it's too much hassle to go look for them. I can't remember if he wrote or at least co-wrote a lot of the stuff on those two albums, but either way it definitely sounded like the songs at least meant something to him. I'd like to hear that again rather than him trying this metal thing which really doesn't seem to suit him. If he's passionate about it, sure, go for it. I'd love to hear him doing something heavy (and good)... but with songs that actually sound like they mean something to him. This new album sounds like trash to me, I hate to say. He's undoubtedly had a very interesting life post-Idol. I'd much rather hear about that in songs rather than dragons eating reapers in balls of fiery metal or whatever shit is on this album. 
    • Pretty true to their sound so many years into their career. Definitely sounds like HS; no doubt about that. 'Broken' is my favourite song from here... nice tune. Most of the rest is all pretty good to solid too. Admirable effort. 
    • Probably wouldn't have bothered to check this out if I'd not heard an interview with Ace where they spoke about the fact that Steve Brown of Trixter fame co-wrote and produced the album. And it does sound good, production-wise. And the songs are a bit better than I expected. Stand out track is the simple but nice 'Back Into My Arms Again.'  The but? For me, it's the vocals. He is not a good singer... quite a bad one, in fact, and it affects the songs poorly, for me. Which is not to say they're all great otherwise. But some are okay. I wish they'd used Steve for the vocals... 
    • Ok even more clues. Carl's best friend the boy who cried ... and hallowed be thy name.
    • Nope you will kick yourself when it is guessed.
