In a brand new interview with About.com, former STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singerScott Weiland was asked if he was surprised that the band ART OF ANARCHY, a project he only did vocals for, put out a press release saying it was a new supergroup that he was a member of.
“No. Actually I wish I could say I was surprised, but I wasn’t surprised,” he responded. “It was a scam from the beginning.”
He continued: “I had them send me the files and I worked in my studio with my engineer and I wrote the lyrics and the melodies and I sent them back. I didn’t even know what their names were… I had no idea who they were.”
Weiland added: “I was paid to do it. But they were an unsigned band and they’re still an unsigned band. Hey. They’re gonna put it out on the Internet, and as fate will have it, they don’t even have a lead singer. I’m not worried about it taking away any thunder from [my solo band] THE WILDABOUTS.”
