Stone Temple Pilots to release 5-track EP with new leader singer Chester Bennington
Does this mean Scott Weiland has beef with Linkin Park?
The switch in lead singers produced a whole other series of events that left the stage and entered the court room. In May, the remaining members of Stone Temple Pilots sued Scott Weiland for exploiting the band name for his own solo gains and being an all around flaky frontman to begin with. Weiland then countersued, stating he should've never been expelled from the band and since he is, then they can't operate as "Stone Temple Pilots" (hence the change in the name). That clearly didn't keep the band down.
On September 4th, Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington will begin a small tour starting in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Then a month later on October 8th, the new band will deliver a 5-track EP titled "High Rise," including the lead single "Out Of Time," which is already a Billboard chart-topping darling. From the looks of it, this lineup has some staying power, as Bennington has no plans to depart from his new group. They say success is the best revenge, so is it safe to say STP + CB have achieved an adequate amount of vengeance yet?
where wuz I oh yea I got some good bush and I'm gonna smoke it man like wow
amazing how people make excuses for these spoiled ego maniacs! weiland is a druggie and a
complete douche! so many guys would love to be in a band as big as STP and this guy just seems
to take his lucky break for granted. like Ace Frehley and Peter Criss with their antics and drug
issues they blew the 2nd and 3rd chances Simmons and Stanley gave them! no I don't like the
new KISS album but at least they are still playing live and the two other guys are great musicians.
so all the STP fans should be happy they are still making new music and get over it already! KISS
is doing it and Alice in Chains is doing it and Black Sabbath did it with DIO etc....
