Scott Weiland says he's playing Core and Purple on his upcoming solo tour because his Stone Temple Pilots bandmates didn't want to.
Weiland tells Michigan Live, "Originally, it was an idea I came up with for STP for the anniversary of Core to do [that] album in its entirety. The rest of the guys didn't want to do it. So, it was still something that there was a lot of public interest in... I talked to the guys in my solo band, The Wildabouts, and they were totally into it, as were the promoters. It worked out."
Weiland will start his tour Friday in Flint, Michigan and stops at Bogart's on Fri. March 22!
