The fun and games in the world of Velvet Revolver continue, with fired singer Scott Weiland not going quietly.

It was announced after the band’s Amsterdam show that the singer was no longer with the band, and today, (March 2), he has released a statement to MTV, responding to the claim from the rest of the band that he was kicked out due to “erratic onstage behavior and personal problems".

Weiland had this to say on the matter:

"After reading the comment by Duff, Matt, Dave and the illustrious 'Guitar Hero,' Saul Hudson, a.k.a. Slash, I find it humorous that the so-called four 'founding members' of Velvet Revolver, better known to themselves as 'the Project' before I officially named the band, would decide to move on without me after I had already claimed the group dead in the water on March 20 in Glasgow.

"In response to Slash's comment regarding my commitment [to the band], I have to say it is a blatant and tired excuse to cover up the truth. The truth of the matter is that the band had not gotten along on multiple levels for some time. On a musical level, there were moments of joy, inspiration, fun times. But let's not forget the multiple trips to rehab every member of the band had taken (with the exception of one member, no need to mention his name).

He goes on to say that he is looking forward to playing with a “group of friends I have known my entire life, people who have always had my back," speaking of the iminent return of Stone Temple Pilots.

He concludes by saying to Velvet Revolver, "Good hunting, lads, I think Sebastian
Bach would be a fantastic choice.”

Stone Temple Pilots have dates lined up for the US over the summer.

Scott Weiland recently went into rehab, resulting in the postponement of a Velvet Revolver show in San Diego.
