Requesting a buyout
It’s typically something you’d see a biter business partner demand if they were fed up with where things were going and that is ask for a buy out. Well, that’s exactly what original Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland is asking the rest of the band to do. Weiland was fired from the band at the beginning of this year, or so says the other members. He has refused that and now says that if the band wants to part ways they have to buy him out. The singer says the band can’t use the name Stone Temple Pilots without him, according to their contract, but that’s just what the band has been doing for a couple months having recorded at least one new song with Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington. Both sides are in the middle of suits and countersuits all the while Weiland is out on tour with his solo act and STP with Bennington plan a tour for this fall.
If you haven’t seen the video of a Pekin, Illinois, woman using the Buckcherry song “Crazy Bitch” as her wedding isle march song, you’re missing out … It’s quite the spectacle. It was such a spectacle that several members of the wedding’s audience were visibly offended. It wasn’t just how poor the song was sang by some karaoke queen, it was also the blatant disregard for virgin ears to the words like bitch and the golden expletive … the f-bomb. Anyways, surely that crazy bitch’s parents are really proud! Lord only knows how friggin’ hideous the reception was.
