Chester Bennington Joins Stone Temple Pilots,...

Posted by: Jack Appleby (05/19/13)
Linkin Park's Chester Bennington has joined Stone Temple Pilots, replacing original vocalist Scott Weiland (fired for the billionth time in February). The band revealed Chester in a surprise performance at the KROQ Weenie Roast yesterday, playing a set which included a new song called "Out Of Time." The recorded version is in the replies - What do you think?

Guys - that's the best STP song in quite a few years.
I've always, always been a huge STP fan (and most 90's rock), so I'm incredibly ok with this.

Hmm. Crazy. Wonder what this means for Linkin Park. Oh well, who cares. Sounds good. His screaming is grating at times but I'd like to hear how an album with him sounds.

This is something I never thought I would ever read. Good for them though.

I'm a big fan of Chester, so this is OK with me. This brings me back to his Grey Daze days.

From Rolling Stone's article:
"Moving quickly to dispel any rumors, Stone Temple Pilots’ Dean DeLeo also made clear that his crew understands Linkin Park is Bennington’s first band. "Chester has a one-of-a-kind voice that we’ve admired for a long time," said Dean DeLeo in the statement. "We know Linkin Park will always be his priority, but we thought it would be cool to try something together. We managed to find the time to record a song and we’re all really happy with the result."

Disagree entirely.
I've known for a long time that Chester was a die hard STP fan so this must have been a dream come true of sorts, and I'm happy for him.

But his voice is not good for this, IMO. I'm an LP fan of sorts but he doesn't have the "dirtiness" this needs. And the song is nothing special. Would sound a bit better with Scott's low end voice.

As for what they've done in the last years, off the last STP record, I really like "Take A Load Off", although nothing else much really.

edit: And any lyrics Chester can come up with will suck for STP. Dude is not a good lyric writer out of LP, we've all heard that other band he had.
