This video we got is very short and it’s Chester covering The Cure’s ‘Friday I’m in Love’. We have no information on what this video’s about, musician, Bruce Menchen uploaded it to youtube yesterday giving it the title ‘Jamin with Chester Bennington From Linkin Park’ so we’ll for now assume that it’s just Chester having fun with friends.
We have a tour date ladies and gents, on September 13 Stone Temple Pilots with Chester will be playing in Oklahoma City at the OKC Downtown Airpark. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10am through Ticket Storm.
We also have a new photoshoot pic.

Following STP’s lawsuit on Weiland last week, their former lead singer has countersued them and requested that the band changed its name. In addition he claimed that the band had no right to expel him and shouldn’t be allowed to perform with their new lead singer Chester Bennington.
“How do you expel a man from a band that he started, named, sang lead on every song, wrote the lyrics, and was the face of for 20 years, and then try to grab the name and goodwill for yourselves,” Weiland’s complaint states.
The band claims Weiland isn’t entitled to call himself a former member of the group and was using its songs without proper permission. They cited him being late to concerts and poor performances as some of the reasons for his ouster.
The second part of STP’s interview with ArtisanNews on MusiCares red carpet is out, Chester said that his joining is not temporary, there will be more music and tours.
Guitar Center has interviewed Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda who talked about the technical aspects of their band and also said that they’ll keep their promise of turning records out faster.
as befits a band that was one of the pioneers in integrating hip-hop and rap elements into heavy rock. From the down-tuned guitar heaviness of the millennial Hybrid Theory to the more-orchestrated but equally dense 2012 release, Living Things, they’ve remained a moving target, always pushing to grow creatively and find the next space from which to create.
As vocalist Chester Bennington reminisces about the band’s beginnings, “We were fortunate to have guys in the band who were very tech savvy and kind of into collecting gear. We had our own PA that we would take to shows and we would have our own mixing board.” An enduring part of Linkin Park’s setup through the years has been gear from the Harman Professional family of brands. “I remember the second microphone I ever bought was a D12 by AKG,” says multi-instrumentalist/producer Mike Shinoda, “and we bought it because we were just starting to record drums. We had no experience doing anything other than playing together, and then we’d gotten some digital recording software and were starting to play around with that. Still, to this day, we basically use that same microphone in the studio, on stage. I mean it’s not an expensive piece of gear, but it’s nice to know, from a beginning musician point of view, that you can buy something that’s just going to last you forever at any level that you play.”
Seems like there’s another interview from the MusiCares MAP, I thought it was a double at first but apparently it isn’t. Chester talking about STP and how the whole uniting thing came about.
