SCOTT WEILAND MAKES HIS FIRST TWEET

Published On February 15, 2013 | By Brett Buchanan | Featured, Stone Temple Pilots

(Possibly former) Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland has made his first ever tweet on Twitter, “Hey @TomSpano – I heard you had lunch with @Brett and heard some great stories!”

The @Brett Weiland is referring to isn’t me, obviously, but Scott follows @grungereport on Twitter. The account is verified and was set up by Weiland’s people nearly 3 years ago but he has never made a tweet himself, only a few tweets promoting his solo releases/live shows. I of course tweeted Weiland asking about the status of STP and telling him fans would love to hear deep cuts live.

    He’ll never admit to being booted.

    He wasn’t booted- never has been and never will be. It’s a cash grab at the very worst for Dean, Robert and Eric. They’ve tried other bands and never came close (I loved AoA).

    This has happened twice! Its not a new idea- just repeating the cycle.

    I think Brett should stop inferring to him as fired/former until it’s confirmed. No reason to- why do it??? Brett, love the site but dont wonder why you dont get more credibility from these guys when you act this way.

    That’s why I put (possibly former) STP frontman.

  • Boom

    (Possibly former) crap author Brett Buchanan, needs to check his facts. Every article I read you have errors of some mind in it. Scott Weiland is still a part of STP.

  • mandingo

    Who gives a shit scott sucks anyway i just hope the band find a better singer and carry on !

  • Boom

    No Mandingo No. Scott doesn’t suck. You may not like him but Scott is a great frontman. What the fuck can you do? You are wrong Mandingo, you are wrong.

    BOOM

  • lilrockable

    Hahaha “Scott Sucks”. How idiotic, the band will never reach the excellence they potentially can without Weiland, and vice versa

  • Scott McLean

    A. I sure hope Scott’s still in the band, B. I’m glad I don’t know how to Tweet.
