Joss Stone To Front Stone Temple Pilots


Following the departure of Chester Bennington from the Stone Temple Pilots, the band has added Joss Stone. Stone will appear with the band on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday, November 9.

Bennington, meanwhile, released a statement thanking STP, adding that he will now "focus solely on Linkin Park . . . 100 percent."

"We decided in due fairness to friends," he began, "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 per cent. It's been an amazing experience and a dream come true, and I look forward to the future of both STP and Linkin Park."

Original STP fronter Scott Weiland was the first to break the news. He was dumped in favor of Bennington two years ago.
