The legal battle between Scott Weiland and his former band Stone Temple Pilots has played out very publicly throughout the past year after the band fired the former frontman in February and then recruited Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington to join their lineup. Weiland is not about to back down without a fight though, saying that the band will have to buy him out of the "company" in order for him to walk away.
On Sept. 12, Linkin Park, will release a free-to-play Facebook game called 'LP Recharge.' Playing the game will also unlock the song 'A Light That Never Comes,' a new Linkin Park collaboration with EDM artist Steve Aoki that the two acts premiered at the Summer Sonic festival in Japan earlier this month.
Many will claim that the internet is basically made of cats and pornography, but this is only partially true -- it's also made of dogs! Someone out there came up with the hypothesis that replacing a musician's bass guitar with a dog would be a brilliant idea … and they couldn't have been more correct!
After his firing from Stone Temple Pilots, it’s not hard to imagine that there may be a bit of bad blood between former STP frontman Scott Weiland and his estranged band. But how does Weiland feel about STP's newly recruited singer Chester Bennington?
There is so much going on with Stone Temple Pilots right now -- new singer (Chester Bennington), new EP, new tour dates, etc. -- that we were very lucky to catch up with the DeLeo brothers to discuss all of that. Hear our exclusive interview with Robert and Dean DeLeo here.
Scott Weiland's feud with his former Stone Temple Pilots bandmates seems to be getting uglier by the minute. After learning he had been replaced in STP by Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington and being slapped with a lawsuit by the band's three other founding members, Weiland has filed a multimillion dollar countersuit.
As previously reported, Stone Temple Pilots recently filed a lawsuit against their former singer Scott Weiland, while Weiland has responded with a few harsh comments about the band's decision to continuing on under the STP name with Linkin Park's Chester Bennington as their new singer. Now, Stone Temple Pilots are attempting to explain their reasons for taking legal action against their former frontman.
Scott Weiland is now speaking about some of the issues that have led to the current problems between himself and Stone Temple Pilots' members, who are now continuing under the STP band name with Chester Bennington as their vocalist. He points to differing viewpoints in how to promote the band as being at the base of their issues.
Stone Temple Pilots recently parted ways with singer Scott Weiland (again), leaving a vacant spot center stage that needed to be filled. In an unexpected twist, Stone Temple Pilots stunned an Irvine, Calif., crowd as Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington took the stage with STP to perform an eight-song set Saturday night at KROQ's Weenie Roast. The collaboration would be exciting enough simply as a one-off, but as reported in a new interview, it looks like Bennington will act as Stone Temple Pilots' new full-time singer.
Last night's (May 18) KROQ Weenie Roast featured a surprise performance by Stone Temple Pilots, who used the event to reveal their new part-time singer: Linkin Park's Chester Bennington. The foursome played a mini-set that included the brand-new track 'Out of Time,' our sister site Loudwire reports, and speaking with the L.A. radio station, STP guitarist Dean DeLeo dished on the nature of the partnership.
