Scott Weiland open to working with Stone Temple Pilots again

As Scott Weiland continues his solo tour, the former Stone Temple Pilots singer says he remains open to working with the band despite recently being fired from the group.

“They’ve done it before, and they can do it again,” Weiland tells “They’re good players. I respect them. Every band has issues. I just think sometimes people say things before they really think about it. I know that I’ve done that in the past. I was guilty of it with Velvet Revolver after myself and [drummer] Matt [Sorum] got into an argument backstage before an encore. That led me to say that I wasn’t going to play any more shows with those guys. So I think that the fact this tour was doing so well was a reactionary thing on their part. But it actually isn’t quite so simple.”

Asked if has closed the door to ever working with STP again, the singer replies “definitely not.”

Weiland's current 20-city run of dates feature him performing songs from the first two Stone Temple Pilots albums, 1992's "Core" and 1994's "Purple."

Stone Temple Pilots recently announced the “termination” of Weiland from the band; the singer immediately challenged that move, calling it “something for the lawyers to figure out.”

Weiland says he is working on a new solo album with his band, The Wildabouts.
