Fans attending the KROQ Weenie Roast this past weekend got a real surprise when Stone Temple Pilots took the stage unannounced, for a set with Chester Bennington of Linkin Park as lead vocalist. Frontman Scott Weiland parted ways with the band earlier this year.
The band performed STP classics like "Sex Type Thing" and "Vasoline," but they also debuted a brand new song, "Out of Time."
How did this all come to pass? Well, Stone Temple Pilots band members, Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz began thinking of singers to accompany the new music they were working on and Bennington was at the top of the list.
"Chester has a one-of-a-kind voice that we've admired for a long time," said Dean DeLeo. "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."
Bennington is stoked to have worked with the legendary band, saying, "I've loved STP since I was 13-years-old and they've had a huge influence on me. When the opportunity came up to do something creative with them, I jumped at the chance. The guys in Linkin Park have been incredibly supportive of me undertaking this project while I've continued to work on new music with LP."
So relax, LPers. CB isn't leaving the L to the P!

Free music is good. Free, good music by a legendary band singing with one of the biggest singers in modern rock music is even better.
