Stone Temple Pilots now fronted by Chester have played another show tonight at Live 105′s BFD 2013 in Mountain View, CA. Check out some photo from the show. Pics in HQ.
Update: 28 more photos
Also updated KROQ Weenie Roast Show
Kevin and Bean chatted backstage with Chester and STP and answered all these questions from how did they come up with Chester fronting Stone Temple Pilots, Chester compared it with Linkin Park and also said that he’s the singer in BOTH Linkin Park AND Stone Temple Pilots. They said they’s going to be an album AND tour! That’s fantastic.
It’s official, Chester has made a new song with Stone Temple Pilots! Weiland has left the band and Chester replaced him at KROQ’s Weenie Roast yesterday. Chester had said to Kevin and Bean a week ago that he might check out Weenie Roast. Evil! Check out the teaser video
“Chester has a one-of-a-kind voice that we’ve admired for a long time,” said guitarist 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.”
“I’ve loved STP since I was 13 years old and they’ve had a huge influence on me,” explained Bennington. “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.”
Download the FREE song called “Out Of Time” here. I have also uploaded pictures from the show:

Linkin Park has talked to Fuse.tv about Music For Relief and its projects and SRS Haiti.
In honor of Chester’s Stevie Ray Vaughan award that he’s getting on May 30th by MusiCares for his active role in the cause I felt it was only appropriate that I made a new layout that was based on Chester’s humanitarian work. The picture I used is from Chester’s visit to Cardon Children’s Medical Center last year and his dog Bruiser who’s actually doing volunteering work at the hospital.
I also made 4 frames to promote the works of Music For Relief, Power The World, MusiCares and finally Cardon’s.
The site is not quite finished though, in the coming days there’s going to be pages with ALL the causes Chester supports or has supported throughout the years.
It’s of great importance that we help anyway we can for not only these causes but for every cause out there, either by donating or promoting and puttng the word out. This is mostly what I wanted to do with this new look.
In related news, Linkin Park’s contest to hang out in the studio and benefit MFR is still running, you can take part here.
