Stone Temple Pilots With Chester Feels Right To Linkin Park Bandmate

(TeamRock Radio) Chester Bennington's Linkin Park bandmates have no problem with his new role fronting Stone Temple Pilots, says LP DJ Joe Hahn. Bennington was unveiled after STP fired Scott Weiland earlier this year. The new lineup have completed an EP called High Rise, due on October 7, and are planning more work together.

That's not stopping Linkin Park, who, along with Bennington, are at work on their own next album and recently launched a video game entitled LP Recharge.

Hahn tells Rolling Stone: "In high school we grew up listening to Stone Temple Pilots. For us these are the deities of rock. They're up there, so if someone asks you to do that, you just do it.

"Chester is such a great singer and for him to have the opportunity to go and sing with other people, we're appreciative of them for asking Chester to do it. I think on a spiritual level it works in so many ways, where it's not even about there being a benefit, it's just something that feels right, especially for Chester." He had more to say about its impact on Linkin Park.
