Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington will be playing with Motley Crue and Hinder in Oklahoma City, OK on September 13, 2013 at the OKC Downtown Airpark! Tickets are on sale now through Ticket Storm.
Yall are being hard on these guys! I love Weiland! But a band is not just a singer. Maybe, they can make it to a show with Chester. Please, come to TULSA!
Intresting … new song got old vibe … shame SW didn’t sing on this track but chester sure does kickass !! Can’t hate the guy for it , lets see if they can crank out better songs.. Sink or Sail
Where can I get the killer new song. I’d pay $10.00 for the download. It’s great. Vintage yet New.
Boo hoo. If you don’t like it then go to one of Weiland’s shows where he tries not to pass out on stage from all the booze.
You guys are following some bad advice. Hope the show is $2.00 the only way you might fill the dump.
Please come to TN. Hell, I’ll drive anywhere in the Southeast to see y’all.
If you hold a brand together at all costs, but the product is different, it will ultimately weaken the brand. And if the brand sends your message, and your message is important, relevant, then by all means, keep the brand. But if you’re holding to the brand in hopes that people will find your message important based solely on the validity of the brand, but they don’t find your message important, the brand dies.
I guess what I’m saying is fuck the brand. If you honestly believe in your message (and your ability to express it through music) that is. Remember where you came from, how you got there, and what you need to do to get back. It’s not as simple as selling oranges to people who love apples by calling your oranges apples.
I’m sincerely not trying to hate here, I want all of you (and I do mean ALL) to do well, and to be respected. Just don’t call something that it isn’t something you want it to be and expect everybody else to fall in line. Calling yourselves “Stone Temple Pilots with Chester Bennington (instead of Scott Weiland)” would be a lot more honest.
I would not be putting this much thought and effort into commenting like this if it didn’t basically come down to one thing I have found to be ultimately true: You are who you were, and where you are now, not because of the things that worked, but because of what worked AND what didn’t. Your band was then, and is now, the sum of its parts. Warts and all. Songs were written that never would have were it not for the problems that you had, the problems you’ve overcome, and the in between. It wasn’t magic. It was hard fucking work. So in closing, thank you all the same and I hope you all do really well.
I hope you guys are coming to Birmingham Alabama, My wife and I are looking forward to seeing the new lineup. Black Sabbath has had a couple different singers and kept the same name, how many awesome timeless songs have they created with Ronny and Ozzy? Quit hating and move on. Its about the music, Chester has a killer voice and can rock some STP songs. I truely wish Scott the best, I hope to see him come around also.
STP & Chester please come to Birmingham!!!
Move on? Why would anyone give up a hard-earned brand after 20-years? For all those fans of Scott w/o the band, you can go see the Weilandabouts and wait for Scott to show up late and high…..which is the reason that Scott’s new band exists, so he can make a couple bucks on his own at the expense of his STP bandmates and the new hired hands will probably tolerate his behavior for a bit…..
I like Chester as the singer and I was probably the biggest skeptic until I heard the latest song. Oddly enough I used to like Linkin Park until they got away from their rock sound….if STP is coming to Mass or CT I’m definitely going!
it was a cool band for a while. But there are so many musicians… all good. however I will never see a band as good as Frank Zappa or Weather Report was… those days are gone… long live Don Van Vliet…oh shoot he is dead.
They are only good as a whole, but I don’t blame the boys for firing Weiland, he’s had it coming for 18 years now I’d say.
without scott.. your not STP…get drunk..then move on!
Sorry guys. I’ve seen you 4 times and never again… Change the name and move on. You using the STP name for recognition is just as bad as Scott taking the songs for recognition
Don’t miss their concert – THEY ROCK and RULE!
Correction, Stone Temple Park does not rock. They sound like shit. They used to rock when they had a real lead singer.
It’s not STP anymore. End of Story.
i agree. i like chester singing like he does on the new single, but he should sing w linkin park like that
