Stone Temple Pilots
When Chester Bennington was a teenager, he saw Stone Temple Pilots in Arizona and was inspired by their live show.
So STP continues without Scott Weiland…he could always do another Christmas album…
In May, Stone Temple Pilots made their live debut with Linkin Park‘s Chester Bennington at KROQ Weenie Roast
Scott Weiland On His Stone Temple Pilots Replacement: ‘I Don’t Think Chester [Bennington] Did It In A Spiteful Way’
“I’ve known Chester for a long time. I got to be pretty close with him on the  Family Values Tour,” Weiland said. “I don’t think Chester did it in a spiteful way.”
“I don’t give a f*** what they call themselves, but it’s not Stone Temple Pilots.”
In an interview with the group backstage, guitarist Dean DeLeo revealed that communication with their recently-fired frontman had become impossibly difficult.
In an unexpected twist, rockers Stone Temple Pilots have filed a lawsuit against the band’s former lead singer, Scott Weiland.
After Chester Bennington of Linkin Park appeared as the new frontman of Stone Temple Pilots at KROQ’s Weenie Roast, there have been no dissenters as of yet.
And then, to add insult to injury, STP go and replace Scott with the emo-screamer dude from Linkin Park!
KROQ’s Weenie Roast always brings a surprise guest and Saturday’s (May 18) show was no exception.
