STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' singer Scott Weiland, who recently released his second solo album, "Happy In Galoshes", spoke to Edna Gundersen of USA Today about the possibility of a new studio album from STP, the band with which he completed an extensive and highly touted U.S. reunion tour.
"When you commit to a band that big that sold so many records and touched that many people, you can't easily get out of it," he said. "I'm finally on my own, at a place I've wanted to be for so long."
On being gun-shy about band duty, he said, "There's a beauty in being part of a band, when there's equality and trust. But at this phase of my life, I want to write and not have to think about whether a song is going to be a hit. I want to explore the music that inspires me, and I don't want to ape myself.
"I've been saying for a long time that I couldn't see myself shaking my (butt) in leather pants when I'm 40. My goal in STP was to leave an imprint. That was done. I want to move forward and be in control of what I do musically. I have kids, and I don't want to spend my life on the road."
