So shocking! The Stone Temple Pilots announced on Feb. 27 that they fired their lead singer, the voice behind the band’s biggest hits in the 1990s.

Scott Weiland and the Stone Temple Pilots may be engaged in a long legal battle after the band terminated their lead singer on Feb. 27. A reason for the firing has not been revealed, but Scott is not happy at all.

“Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland,” the band, now consisting of bassist Robert DeLeo, guitarist Dean DeLeo and drummer Eric Kretz, said in a statement on Feb. 27.

“I learned of my supposed ‘termination’ from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press,” Scott, 45, said in his own statement, according to Reuters. “Not sure how I can be ‘terminated’ from a band that I founded, fronted and co-wrote many of its biggest hits, but that’s something for the lawyers to figure out.”

The band, who is responsible for hits such as “Plush” and “Interstate Love Song,” broke up in 2003, but reunited in 2008.

During that “break,” Scott was in the rock group Velvet Revolver with former members of Guns N’ Roses among others.

Oddly enough, Scott begins a month-long solo US concert tour on March 1 in Flint, Michigan. His Twitter account in flooded with tweets, promoting his tour. Could it be that the band was jealous of his solo endeavors?

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Did the Stone Temple Pilots make the right call?
