Scott Stapp Replaces Scott Weiland But Not In Stone Temple Pilots


Scott Stapp has revealed that he is indeed replacing the late Scott Weiland in a band, but it is not Stone Temple Pilots. Instead, it is the Guns N' Roses/Disturbed supergroup Art of Anarchy.

Stapp made the announcement after he caused some controversy in an interview where he was sharing his excitement about his new gig but refused to say that it wasn't with Stone Temple Pilots. The band quickly let fans know that he wasn't their new frontman.

On Tuesday, Stapp revealed that he had assumed vocalist duties with Art of Anarchy, the supergroup project that featured Weiland on their debut album along with former Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron "Bumble Foot" Thal and John Moyer of Disturbed.

Here is what Stapp had to say, I" wanted to clarify any confusions on Stone Temple Pilots and my comment. First off, Scott Weiland in STP is irreplaceable. I was recently asked what I'm currently working on in an interview and could not reveal details or announce this new project. This led the interviewer to assume it was STP and he eagerly kept asking for more details. Evidently my response caused confusion.

"I'm excited to share I've been working with Art Of Anarchy band who's members are Ron 'Bumble Foot' Thal, formerly of Guns N Roses, John Moyer of Disturbed and Jon and Vince Votta. Original announcement was slated for July along with our first single and album to follow but happy to share this announcement sooner to clarify.

"Art Of Anarchy is the project that I was referring to in the interview not STP. Scott Weiland was a part of Art of Anarchy and that's the six degrees of separation I was referring to. Always been a fan of STP and I wish them all the best in their search for a new singer."
