Ex-Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland has taken a shot at his former bandmates after they fired him earlier this week.

Weiland has stated that they are unable to fire him as a contractual agreement between the band means they cease to exist if one member leaves.

"Not sure how I can be 'terminated' from a band that I founded, fronted, and co-wrote many of their biggest hits. But that's something for the lawyers to figure out," he said in a statement released to the press.

Weiland has also spoken with Rolling Stone about the conflict, saying the other band members, "wanted to get together to talk about touring, but I don't think touring right now is the best thing. STP has a legacy, and to protect that is very, very important to me. But to go and do the kind of offers that we were getting would be diminishing the brand, and I don't want to do that. There are offers right now. There are offers that I passed up on. There's offers that those guys didn't want as well. There were some hurt egos, but that's the way it is."
