    According to a press release just sent out on behalf of Stone Temple Pilots, singer Scott Weiland has been officially been fired from the band. The troubled vocalist is no stranger to internal conflict, and it seems that those days are far from over for Weiland, as he once again finds himself out of a job.

    Weiland was dismissed from Velvet Revolver in 2008, and one of his former bandmates in that group, Slash, unofficially broke the news of Weiland’s latest exit from Stone Temple Pilots during an interview with Minneapolis/St. Paul radio station 93X. While discussing Weiland’s insistence that he was back in Velvet Revolver in December 2012, Slash threw in, “That’s because he got fired from STP.”

    Although Slash is considered a reliable source, the news was still thought to be hearsay until Stone Temple Pilots officially announced Weiland’s leave in a short press release issued today (Feb. 27) that reads entirely as follows:

    Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland.

     

    Strangely enough, in an interview with Rolling Stone conducted just yesterday (Feb. 26), Weiland insisted that he was still a member of Stone Temple Pilots. ”STP has not broken up,” said Weiland. “I haven’t quit. I haven’t been fired … Slash doesn’t know anything about STP. We’re talking right now about when we want to tour next … No one has ever fired anybody in STP. We’re like a family. It’s also a partnership. I started the band. We’ve always kept things going. We’ve taken time off before. They’ve done their own projects and I fully support that. No one has been fired and I haven’t quit. That’s all hearsay.”

    Scott Weiland is currently working on his career as a solo artist with backing band the Wildabouts. Weiland and the Wildabouts will be hitting the road on their ‘Purple at the Core’ tour, signifying that the string of dates will focus heavily on Stone Temple Pilots’ first two albums, ‘Core’ and ‘Purple.’ Weiland is also expected to perform Velvet Revolver and solo material. The trek begins March 1 in Flint, Mich.

  • Ace Frehley Could be Homeless Soon.

    Former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley may have to go back out on the road -- for a long time.

    The 61-year-old rocker’s Westchester home is in foreclosure after Frehley didn’t make his mortgage payments for two years, the Journal News reported.

    Ace Frehley was one of the most famous guitarists of the '70s during his heyday with KISS - but has been in and out of the band's lineup since.

    Chase, the mortgage issuer, filed to foreclose on the 2,441 square foot property that Frehley purchased in 2006 on Feb. 15.

    It gets worse for the musician once known as “Spaceman”: The Journal News reports he owes nearly $20,000 in back property taxes.

    While he’s been out of KISS for several years, Frehley has been shredding most recently at a the Rock n’ Roll Fantasy Camp in Las Vegas.

    Perhaps he can go to former bandmate Gene Simmons for a loan: Forbes estimates the big-tongued bassist is worth $300 million.

  • Megan Fox Joins the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    Two things.  1) I have found Megan Fox repulsive ever since I found out about her toe thumbs.  2) April O'Neil is supposed to be a red head.  I'm sick of hollywood robbing us of hot red head action. -Parker

     

     Variety is now reporting that Fox will star as the classic Turtles character April O'Neil. "Prior to the holidays, the studio began meeting with actresses such as Jane Levy, Anna Kendrick and Elizabeth Olsen," says the trade paper, "and the studio will now aim to find its male lead."

    This is a social media expert's worst nightmare.  Earlier today somebody hacked into the Burger King Twitter account and claimed that they had been bought by McDonalds (among other things.)  Last I heard, BK had shut down the account.

    What?!!! -Parker

    “Paralympic superstar Oscar Pistorius was charged Thursday with the murder of his girlfriend who was shot inside his home in South Africa, a stunning development in the life of a national hero known as the Blade Runner for his high-tech artificial legs.

    Reeva Steenkamp, a model who spoke out on Twitter against rape and abuse of women, was shot four times in the predawn hours in the home, in a gated community in the capital, Pretoria, police said.

    A 9 mm pistol was recovered and a murder case opened against Pistorius.”
