Scott Weiland stopped singing for Stone Temple Pilots a while before his death, but their legacies are forever entwined. Prior to his passing last December, STP vocal duties were temporarily taken over by Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington. Earlier this month we reported that the group is now looking for a new singer, and are effectively holding open auditions. That's right—you could be in the band...maybe!
It looks like they might be holding off on that search for the time being, however, because they just announced Bennington will once again join STP, for one night only.
Linkin Pilots will once again hit the stage March 26 at the Norris Theater and Pavilion in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. It's a charity event called "From Bach To Rock," where proceeds will benefit the Peninsula Education Foundation. According to their website, the PEF seeks to aid public education in California, including school music, physical education, library and STEM programs, safe school counselors, academic and career counselors, and teacher salaries.
