Remember Stone Temple Pilots? Well, they decided to fire their lead singer. Yes. They fired their own lead singer, Scott Weiland last week. I know he's crazy and all but firing your own lead singer? 

What's even better is that he didn't know until he read about his termination from the band...on the internet! He released a statement through Rolling Stone.

 I learned of my supposed "termination" from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press.  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.  In the meantime, I’m looking forward to seeing all of my fans on my solo tour which starts this Friday.  – Scott Weiland

Apparently the band was having troubles after they released an album in 2010 and toured in support of it. However, Weiland told Rolling Stone that despite the bruised egos, the band was like a family. And like some families, sometimes it's best if everyone just walks away.
