In a news release today, the members of California rock band Stone Temple Pilots have reportedly terminated lead vocalist Scott Weiland from the group.

"well weiland kind of makes STP what it is so...without him i don't really see why the band should go on."

I'm not even sure how or why they've been going on this long in the first place. They may have been popular, but they weren't, like, legendarily good. They haven't released anything good for over a decade, or had any hits like they had in the 90's. The reunion thing was a pretty cool thing, but I say it's time for them to hang up their hats and move on.

This group was good, but is one of the less spectacular groups of the grunge era. I like a part of their material but they have some weak points.

Weiland is irreplaceable, without him they should probably change the name of the band. Looks like their comeback was fairly short-lived then. Shame.

There will never be another Velvet Revolver. Apparently, the Roses boys can't stand Weiland.

They sorta bombed their last chance with the last album. Oh well, I saw them live, and it was good, but it's all over now.

They should ask Dustin Kensrue to replace him for a tour that will put some of you on that bandwagon I'm sure.

Purple was their only album that was good all across the board. Band should have broken up in like 1997.

Andcas, if Weiland was fired for drugs I highly doubt Croom would make a good replacement
