Scott Weiland is now speaking about some of the issues that have led to the current problems between himself and Stone Temple Pilots‘ members, who are now continuing under the STP band name with Chester Bennington as their vocalist. He points to differing viewpoints in how to promote the band as being at the base of their issues.

In a new interview with AZCentral.com, Weiland states, “Originally, before the whole STP thing blew up, I said, ‘Look, we need to take a break. We need to make an album. We’ve been playing the same [expletive] set for four years, without a change. We’ve been watching ourselves go from playing 20,000-seat arenas to country fairs and 2,000-seat casinos.’” Weiland says he felt this was destroying the band’s brand, but the other members, who had different management, saw things differently.

The singer states of the band’s decision to move on without him: “Is that how I want to see STP now? Not at all. Not the band that I started. Not the band that I named. Not the band that when I was in Huntington Beach, took a shot and called Robert DeLeo at his apartment, doing nothing in music, living with his girlfriend, and said, ‘Hey man, would you like to do a band?’”

When asked about where things stand between Weiland and his former bandmates, the vocalist stated, “I don’t really think about it a lot. I think about how disrespectful they are, sometimes, in between a sip of coffee and a hit of my cigarette. I think about how selfish they are.”
