Have 3 of their albums...Core always came off as bland to me, Purple was their pinnacle and a great album. Tiny Music has grown on me.

After that Weiland's drug problems really played a role in making the band inconsistent and they dropped off my radar...wasn't even aware of further album releases after that.

Still...if there's a contract preventing band members from being dismissed and the band still using the moniker "Stone Temple Pilots" then firing Weiland is pretty stupid if they're planning to tour.

I personally enjoyed the no.4 album as well. I'll have to bust it back out and give it a listen.

The core of GN'R?

Izzy was a more integral part of GN'R than both Slash and Duff

Izzy was fine up until he got sober when they were recording the Use Your Illusion albums. Izzy was probably the most integral part of GN'R.

14 Years
Pretty Tied Up
You Could Be Mine
Don't Cry

All great songs off of UYI that Izzy wrote. Add those to Patience, Used To Love Her from Lies, Lies, Lies. Appetite is harder to know who wrote what because they didn't give individual writing credits, but the riffs from Nightrain and Out To Get Me sound like Izzy.

He actually performed with them last night at the KROQ Weenieroast. Was good, he's usually pretty good at emulating other singers while still sounding unique.

Their new song with him as lead:


The above mentioned performance from last night:


Now whether or not he's a good replacement for Scott can be debated endlessly, but Scott screwed up and can't stay clean and Chester can at least sing. I'd rather STP make music than not make music.

Edit: Also no one knows if this is permanent or if he's just filling in, Chester isn't leaving his other band either. Maybe Scott is trying to get clean for the one billionth time.

**** YES!

Chester is probably my favorite artist ever, so i'm pretty damn pumped. Everything this guy does is golden.

Dead By Sunrise had some amazing songs, Linkin Park is an amazing band and most of all, the dude is flat out amazing live.

STP just gained a few million fans.

It sounds more like Army of Anyone, the last side project the STP guys did with Richard Patrick. That album wasn't bad, but it didn't sell.....

STP name is for the cash only. They know they'll sell w/the name. Just like the Alice guys did without Staley.


I mean the song isn't bad. Chester is a good vocalist. But it doesn't sound like STP w/out Weiland.

Not if they lost a few millions fans at the same time. Speaking as a long time STP fan and someone who never liked Linkin Park, I have to at least give Chester Bennington a little respect, though, after seeing a clip of the KROQ show. But it's like STP went out and got a Franken-Scott Weiland.

I like STP, I like Linkin Park, and I like Chester. But that song is horrid. This will be just another mediocre, fleeting "super"group.

Have never liked LP or that guy's singing so I definitely don't like this. I do dig STP though, even the last album. Had some good songs though no real gems.

Im an STP fan from when they first broke out. I am not down with this. I wouldnt pay to go see it. If SW is too strung out they should just leave it be. I doubt any of them really need the money. They should do other things instead of bastardizing one of the special things that they did do.

Barf. Linkin Park is probably the worst band in the world. Their singer sounds like a whiny jerk. In my opinion at least...

will I enjoy stp with linkin park dude? nope. Wont even give it a chance.
