The 3 year relationship that Stone Temple Pilots and Chester Bennington has come to an end. It was a very amicable though. Chester said that he has to get back to Linkin Park, and The DeLeo Brothers were totally cool with that. In a post on the official STP website Chester calls his time with the band “amazing” and “We decided in due fairness to friends, fans and the legacy of STP that it needs more than time was allowing me. And in all fairness to my bandmates in Linkin Park, as well as to myself and to my family, I’m going to focus solely on Linkin Park so I can contribute 100%.”
The DeLeo brothers and Eric Kretz also call the time they had as amazing, and “Sadly, it was evident that scheduling and time was working against us.” We wish them both well in their future endeavors.
STP is still scheduled to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight with Joss Stone on vocals.
