Stone Temple Pilots Vs Atlantic
Atlantic Records filed a lawsuit on Thursday against frontman Scott Weiland and drummer Eric Kretz after the two allegedly "threatened to stop performing under their contract and have indicated they would like to end the agreement unless Atlantic makes significant changes," according to Reuters.
It's unclear from the report, but it appears that the band's contract with Atlantic calls for giving the label the option on up-to three additional albums from the band. They claim that the contract was "written under New York laws and that the musicians are trying to use California laws to terminate it." - Read the Reuters report for all the details
