STONE TEMPLE PILOTS Frontman Comments On LINKIN PARK Collaboration

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS frontman Scott Weiland recently had the following to say about the group's collaboration with LINKIN PARK vocalist Chester Bennington on a live version of the STP track "Wonderful", which is included on the forthcoming Family Values 2001 album:

Chester was coming out on stage with us pretty much from the onset of the tour performing 'Dead And Bloated' with me. He's younger than I am by a few years, and STP is sort of the band he grew up with, along with a couple of others. Before I even met him I read a lot in the press, in magazines and such, as far as what his feelings were towards STP and the kind of effect and influence it has had on him. So, we were pretty honored to hear that and to meet him. And when he was interested in coming up on stage we thought it would be kind of fun.”

Family Values 2001 is slated for release on May 7th. "Wonderful", the first single from the upcoming CD, goes to radio on March 20th.
