Scott Weiland Wanted Stone Temple Pilots Lineup Change

(Classic Rock) Scott Weiland wanted Stone Temple Pilots to change their lineup ahead of his sacking. The band announced earlier this week they'd "terminated" his position with them, leaving the ex-Velvet Revolver frontman shocked and saying he'd only discovered the news in the press.

But the day before STP made their move, he'd been discussing the possibility of modifying the band's personnel.

Sixteen hours ahead of the announcement Weiland told Rolling Stone: "My personal feeling is that we just need some new blood in the band. It'll give it new energy, so that we're not just playing the same greatest hits set we've been playing ever since we got back together after I left Velvet Revolver. I'd like to make a new record so it breathes new life into it."

Weiland also stated he was still hoping for a reunion with Velvet Revolver despite guitarist Slash's assertion that the pair would never work together again.

The singer said: "I'd love it if it happened. But it's not something I can count on, and it's not something that I can control. If it happens, it'll happen. It would be a great thing. But what about Slash?
