Scott Weiland Addresses Member Exit Rumor (A Top Story)

On Friday Scott Weiland Addresses Member Exit Rumor was a top story. Here is the recap: Scott Weiland took to his Facebook account this week to clear up speculation that drummer Joey Castillo has quit the former Stone Temple Pilots new solo band Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts.

The online rumors started after fans noticed that the former Queens of the Stone Age drummer did not perform with the band at a show in Lawrence, Kansas on Tuesday night.

Weiland posted a message to fans to explain that Castillo has only stepped away from the band temporarily and Mike Avenaim, who played on several tracks and co-wrote one song on the band's debut "Blaster", would be filling in.

Weiland wrote, "Just to clear up the confusion - Joey has NOT left the band. He is recording for a week with BL'AST and will meet back up with us on the 27th. I've known about this for months, hence lining up our friend Mike Avaneim [sic] to fill in." -
