Fans get another big surprise from L.A. radio station KROQ’s annual Weenie Roast when 90’s rock band Stone Temple Pilots performed onstage with Chester Bennington of Linkin Park as their lead singer. The unannounced performance saw a blistering set from the band that included old songs such as Sex Type Thing, Vasoline, Wicked Garden, Dead & Bloated, and Interstate Love Song.
Bennington, who grew up listening to the band, said it was a no-brainer saying yes to this kind of opportunity. Aside from the live performance, he also hit the studio to record a track with the band, drawing conclusions that he’s now the new frontman of STP after the band parted ways with Scott Weiland.
Out Of Time is their latest track, which is free for download for limited time. The band’s official website also features Chester on the photos so it seems he’s now their new lead singer.
According to STP guitarist Dean DeLeo, Bennington was there first choice for the gig, and only he can fill in the void left by Weiland.
But don’t worry Linkin Park fans, as Chester is still the singer of the band and will continue to be their frontman. STP has announced that he will play with them in between commitments to Linkin Park.
