Stone Temple Pilots Explain Legal Battle With Scott Weiland

(Classic Rock) Stone Temple Pilots have explained their reasons for taking legal action against sacked singer Scott Weiland saying he turned a planned band tour into a solo trip without telling anyone.

Last week it was revealed that Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz had recruited Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington as Weiland's replacement. They later filed a lawsuit against their former colleague.

Now the band explain: "Our purpose in taking this action is not to hurt Scott. We want to move forward productively and Scott's choices and actions have prevented us from doing that.

"We were in the process of putting our 20th anniversary tour together to celebrate the release of our first album, Core. The plan was for a big tour where we'd perform the album in its entirety along with some other STP songs.

"You might imagine our shock and disappointment when, without any notice, we learned that Scott has seized the tour for himself as his solo tour and decided to do exactly what we as a group had planned. We found out about it the same way you did: we saw an ad for it." more on this story
