Fans attending the KROQ Weenie Roast in Los Angeles at the weekend were the first to discover that Bennington is now the lead singer of the band,
which was previously fronted by Scott Weiland. You can watch Bennington performing 'Dead And Bloated' from STP's debut album 'Core' below.
I saw both Linkin Park and Stone Temple Pilots at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland back in 2001 or so during the Family Values Tour. Scott Weiland
was extremely high on drugs at the time and got naked on stage and wrapped himself in an American Flag.

I am pretty sure he is! I didn't see that coming from a mile away!
I'll be honest here, I was expecting to prove you wrong, but I apparently I can't do that.
I had read last week, that the other guys of STP were going to be at this festival, but Weiland was not, so I figured this was probably just a one
time thing, but apparently they have been working on this for awhile now, yet have somehow managed to keep it quiet, which is actually quite
surprising in this day and age....
The singer spoke about his decision to join the band to KROQ Radio after the show [color=C2FDFF]and confirmed they are working on new material
"Every band has it's own kind of vibe. Stone Temple Pilots has this sexier, more classic rock feel to it. Linkin Park is a very modern, very
tech-heavy type of band. I grew up listening to these guys. When this opportunity came up, it was just like a no-brainer. [color=C2FDFF]We couldn't
really plan a tour until now because we couldn't let people know what was going on. Now the cat's out of the bag so we're going to go out and make
more music and go play more shows and have some fun."
