I don't know how I am supposed to feel about this. As incoherant as Scott Weiland has gotten over the years, he was the musky, swanky piece of sex in Stone Temple Pilots. It's hard..no, it's IMPOSSIBLE for me to think of Chester Bennington that way. No. NO.
It's not that the idea repulses me, but...after all of these years of knowing Weiland's voice with STP and Chester's with Linkin Park....well, it's downright wrong. Let me say that I am sure that Chester Bennington is a great guy. He has great screaming abilities and really, I'm sure they'll do just fine. I'm just a snob and a purist and am that grumpy old lady that doesn't like change.
With all that out of the way, the new Stone Temple Pilots have a new song. I picked this up at www.cbennington.com. It's not a bad tune, it just doesn't feel like the Stone Temple Pilots that I have grown to love. What do you think? Also, what does this mean for Linkin Park?
