(Classic Rock) Stone Temple Pilots bassist Robert DeLeo says the band will pick a new singer in due course - but they know late frontman Scott Weiland can never be replaced.

Weiland died in December, aged 48, while on tour with his solo band, after he'd split with STP for the second time in 2013. He'd previously been fired by Velvet Revolver for behavior associated with drug addiction issues.

Robert, brother Dean DeLeo and Eric Kretz went on to work with Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington and released their High Rise EP with him before they went their separate ways.

Robert tells Rolling Stone: "It's impossible to replace Scott. We created something that only the four of us could create. It's about moving forward, but it's also about someone honoring that, and being able to get their creativity around that." Read more here.
