Stone Temple Pilots and Scott Weiland Problems Started 20 Years Ago

(Classic Rock) Dean DeLeo says fractures in Stone Temple Pilots' relationship with Scott Weiland began as early as the first album back in 1992. The band's guitarist was talking to Ultimate Guitar about why the band parted ways with their former frontman and brought in Chester Bennington.

Dean was asked " Did you come to the realization a long time ago that either Scott Weiland had to get it together or it was going to end?" and he responded, "I think everyone did whatever they could. I'm talking wives, brothers, friends and everyone."

In an answer to a follow up question he said, "[Weiland] absolutely was [a great singer and lyricist]. His lyrics were amazing. In my humble opinion and it's easy for me to be biased. Everything he brought forth when we were all kind of running on all pistons per se and that didn't really last very long but when we were up and runnin', I don't think there was anybody better, man."

When pressed on how long the band was performing as a unit at full capacity he laughs: "Well, the first record went off without a hitch." more on this story
