Stone Temple Pilots Future In Doubt - 08 Rewind

Stone Temple Pilots Future In Doubt was a top story for October. Enjoy our 2008 news rewind as you read the story again:(antiMusic) Scott Weiland is pleased with his new solo album, "Happy in Galoshes," which hits stores on Tuesday but when Billboard asked him if a new Stone Temple Pilots album was in the future, Scott sounded a far less happy note. And you can blame it on how one major label treats music as product and not art. Here is that part of the interview:

Q: Are you planning to make a Stone Temple Pilots album now that you've toured? ** Weiland: "I don't know how things are going to go with STP. It was sad to find out that we're still in some way locked into a contract with Atlantic Records, which is a travesty, actually. When we signed to them it was a great label. It was a beautiful time in music. Now if you say, 'We're going to do this song as the first single,' they go, 'OK, we're going to do some radio testing.' What the ... ?

"When we first talked about putting STP back together, it was, 'Do this tour and then see about doing a creative deal with another company.' So if it ends up being we have to make a certain amount of records for Atlantic in order to be free, then I don't know if I have that in me." - more on this story
