Stone Temple Pilots Singer Legal Agreement Leaks With Surprising Details


Two sources have shared details with Alternative Nation regarding Stone Temple Pilots’ nondisclosure agreements that singers who auditioned for the band signed. The singers signed over unrestricted rights to the ‘Artist’s Appearance,’ which includes their voice, likeness, name, biography, and performances, to Stone Temple Pilots. STP also had the right to alter, edit or not use the ‘Artist’s Appearance.’

The agreement also states, “Artist hereby releases the Group, STP Partnership and their designees from any liability, claims and actions which Artist now has or may have in connection with Artist’s Appearance, including without limitation, claims for libel, defamation, invasion of privacy, publicity or personality, false light, infliction of emotional distress, negligence, damage or loss to any personal property, loss of income, or any other tort or contract or other cause of action arising out of Artist’s Appearance.

Artist covenants not to bring any legal action against the Group, the STP Partnership, or their designees arising out Artist’s Appearance or the exploitation thereof on any legal theory, and expressly agrees that any claims Artist could make will be limited to actions at law, with waiver or any claim to a remedy for equitable relief, including without limitation the right to rescind, nullify or enjoin the rights granted herein to use Artist’s Appearance for any purpose whatsoever.”

Stone Temple Pilots were filming the audition process, so having auditioning singers sign a legal agreement especially due to the secretive nature of the project is par for the course. Stone Temple Pilots will reveal their new singer at a show in Hollywood at the Troubadour on November 14th. The band are also planning the release of a new single, followed by a new album.

    As long as they go by STP I will not be supporting them ,because the voice of STP is gone and can’t come back ,so change your name and quit trying to live off the name and man who made u famous

      What made them equally famous was superb songwriting and musicianship. I love Scott, but it wasn’t all him.

        Scott s voice made them famous how good did they do with army of anyone even though I loved the album it wasn’t very popular and he went on to velvet revolver and they were another great band , so I’m pretty sure it was Scott’s voice because even the chester album wasn’t very popular either so I don’t know what in the hell u r even talking about

          Slash and Duff WITH Scott were the reason VR did so well. That was a powerhouse of a band! STP without Scott (aka Talk Show) was greatly reviewed but did not perform well musically. So yeah, what’s left of STP is a great band but they really needed Scott. Even with Chester they couldn’t have competed. I’m hoping this new guy is a solid live performer with a great voice. STP can move forward but they need somebody who is on par with Scott but not going to mimic what he did (like Chester tried to do).

          • frank

            Army of anyone was a great band and this new guy is just trying to mimic Scott to so I’m not a fan so far but they might grow on me and talk show was a joke ,really bad joke

          • frank

            And VR got lucky to get Scott to join them r they would have never got off the ground
