Entertainment Tonight is reporting that 40-year-old Michigan native Gutt is the Stone Temple Pilots' new frontman after the band launched a worldwide search to replace Chester Bennington.
ET says a "source" has told them that STP have begun rehearsals in Hollywood, Los Angeles, this week, and that they are expected to tour in 2017, playing old classics and new material.
But in a statement, a representative of Stone Temple Pilots says: "The band has been rehearsing with several singers over the past few weeks. They haven't made a decision yet."
Bennington left the group last year to concentrate fully on his work with Linkin Park. Original singer Scott Weiland was fired by STP in 2013 and he died last year of a drug overdose.
Announcing their search for a singer earlier this year, STP said: "We've already heard from many talented people, but want to make this an opportunity for many more so we've set up a way for you to do just that." Read morehere.
Now they've issued all the videos - and they've also added a separate live clip for their 2014 track Lords Of Summer, which features on the deluxe edition of the album.
Metallica frontman James Hetfield told Metal Hammer that he's excited to be releasing another studio album again - and also explained why Hardwired… To Self-Destruct took eight years.
He said: "We didn't mark it on the calendar - 'Eight years from now we're gonna have a record out.' And things happen - families, Lulu's, Through The Never's, festivals. So much that all of a sudden time slips away, and you realise, 'Oh, we can still be a band. Let's put some new music out.' Why does it take eight years? I don't like that fact.
I blame my kids! But we've still got lots of material." Watch all of the videoshere.
Wendy, who was also Dio's longtime manager, says there are "precious" tapes in the archives still to be issued - though she'd have to cut through some red tape to release her late husband's work with Rainbow.
She tells Eric Blair: "I have four albums that I own after that box set, and we have some precious things in the archives, which we're going to put out and add on there, and I think Rhino will put it out next year."
When asked whether there is unreleased video of the singer, Wendy replies: "Oh yeah. I'm talking all the way back. I've actually got stuff from Rainbow we're not allowed to put out, but we've got stuff. We videoed almost every show." Read morehere.
The inaugural A Peaceful Noise charity concert was held last night (November 15) at the Shepherd's Bush Empire to mark the anniversary of the Paris terrorist attacks and celebrate the life of Eagles Of Death Metal merchandise man Alexander, who died in the attacks.

All of the musicians involved had worked with Nick Alexander while on the road. Nick's sister and A Peaceful Noise organizer Zoe Alexander says: "Our first A Peaceful Noise show has been incredible.

"I want to say a huge thank you to everyone that has shown their support." A gallery of images from the A Peaceful Noise show can be viewedhere.

Bush performed the lead vocal live while filming in a water tank at Pinewood Studios to reflect the fact that the character in the song is lost at sea. Before The Dawn was recorded during Bush's 22-date residency at London's Hammersmith Eventim Apollo in 2014, and will be released on November 25 via Fish People and distributed through Rhino Records.
The shows were Bush's first full live performances since 1979 - and she recently revealed she was nervous about forgetting her lines onstage. She said: "I was terrified. The idea of putting the show together was something that I found really interesting and really exciting. But to actually step into it was something that I had to really work hard on because I was terrified of doing live work as a performer again.
"I was really nervous every night as a performer, but had complete faith in everybody on the stage, everybody in the team, all the sound guys. The most difficult thing for me was to be continually in the now because I naturally tend to race ahead in my mind. I think maybe it's that kind of primeval thing where you're trying to think, 'Can I get to that tree before the tiger gets me? Will I be able to get up high enough?'" Read morehere.

After headlining two arena tours and being a part of some amazing festivals, we wanted to bring it back to an atmosphere that we know our fans will enjoy and truly deserve.
"This tour is a way for us to bring the show to them and to play venues that allow us to deliver a very special night featuring two sets of music, like we've never done before. No other bands - just the four of us and our fans.
"We are truly thrilled to bring this unique Black Stone Cherry experience to the UK. We have never done anything like this before and we knew the UK was the only place to do it. That's all we're gonna say about it." Watch the new videohere.

Ashba - who's now concentrating fully on Sixx AM alongside Nikki Sixx and James Michael - tells Overdrive: "It really does feel like a humongous weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
"That was a huge responsibility for me, and to be honest I didn't know how big that weight was going to be. I learned a lot and I'm very grateful for it all - I experienced something for six whole years that money can't buy, and I was able to take away a huge amount of self-growth, and an insight into the workings of a huge band like that."
He adds: "I didn't for one moment anticipate that there was going to be so much criticism, as well as a lot of praise. The whole experience made me grow thick skin. Looking back, I took away so much which I apply to my everyday life, as well as my role in Sixx AM." Read morehere.

Shadows tells 2 Hours With Matt Pinfield: "18 years of my life, he was literally at my house every single day. When you lose some that close, it's at times worse than losing a family member. Your whole world is ripped apart - everyone that knew him is a wreck emotionally.
"It goes on for years and years and years. You never fully recover from it - it's something you live with for the rest of your life."
He adds: "There's all those moments where you're like, 'Man, this would be great if he was here for this,' or you want to call him - his number's still in your phone." Read morehere.

I wrote "Ready For War (Pray For Peace)" because I love this country and I love the soldiers who keeps us free, and the police officers who risk their lives every day to keep us safe. The song was inspired by some of my best friends who have served our country in the military, and some are officers who put their lives on the line every day serving our community.
With the media and government not showing nearly enough appreciation to our soldiers and officers - the job has become extremely thankless. I wrote the song from the mindset of these men, and myself being a father who protects a household of 3 girls. I want peace and love in this world, but with the monsters out there creating havoc and war, we must always be ready as a nation for anything.
I see on a first hand basis how so many people take our soldiers and officers for granted, compared to what they risk for our safety and freedom. The song is from the perspective of us looking to keep the people and country we love protected for our children's children, and future generations. It's my way of saying Thanks to the men and women who keep us from harm on a daily basis.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the singleright here!
