SCOTT WEILAND TALKS ABOUT THE POSTPONEMENT OF LAST MONTH’S STP TOUR

An American Stone Temple Pilots tour was postponed last month due to Weiland’s continuing throat problems. “My voice was shot,” Weiland says. “I’ve been on the road nonstop ever since I got in with Velvet Revolver. We over-toured this last STP record. Sometimes it begins to feel like you’re punching a clock. A lot of times I told them that we had to stop because my voice was giving out. Finally, an ear, nose and throat specialist put a camera down my throat. One of my vocal chords was strong – like overly strong – but the other one was very weak. He was afraid that I was going to do irreparable harm.”

Weiland finds the whole situation very frustrating. “This isn’t about any finger pointing, but there was a lack of communication,” he says. “Things slip by and they slip through the cracks, and that can’t happen. There would be no Christmas record and no STP records or concerts if my voice was destroyed.”

Weiland also stated in the interview that he plans to take a break following the Christmas and STP tours.

    So are you going to reschedule the Council Bluffs show that you canceled twice, the first time for no reason at all…

  • Recluse

    No Christmas records?! What would we do?!

    This guy needs to get off the fucking road. Try to get clean again. We miss the old Scott, well… kinda. We miss the Scott that would show up and get through the songs every night.

    No Christmas record! Oh nooooo!!!

    And they did over-tour the last record…but amazingly couldn’t make it to Des Moines! Council Bluffs isn’t “Iowa”…it’s Omaha’s nutsack.

    No body is giving him a hard time. I’m asking when the fuck my show is going to be…Probably never since it is in Iowa. Still, there was no reason to cancel it in the first place.
