During Stone Temple Pilots’ March 10 show at The Marquee Theatre in Tempe, AZ, the band invited a nine-year-old fan onstage to sing “Dead & Bloated“ with them. The kid is reportedly the child of singer Jeff Gutt’s friends.
During Stone Temple Pilots’ March 8 show at The Rose in Pasadena, California, the band were joined onstage by Johnny Depp and Joe Perry (Aerosmith). Depp performed “Down” with the group, before Depp and Perry both joined them for a cover of Aerosmith’s “Toys In The Attic” and for set closer “Sex Type Thing.”
Stone Temple Pilots have premiered a new song titled “Never Enough,” via Yahoo!. This track is from their new self-titled album, which will be released on March 16. This will be their first effort with new singer Jeff Gutt (ex-Dry Cell).
Yahoo! are also running an interview with Gutt about his friendship with previous Stone Temple Pilots singer, the late Chester Bennington (also of Linkin Park). He said the following:
“I knew Chester. I’ve known Chester since 2001. I was in a band called Dry Cell, and we were signed by the same guy that signed Linkin Park, so that’s how I knew him. He would come to some of our writing sessions and rehearsals; I’d see him in the studios that we were at. When we were recording, they’d be recording there. We just had a good friendship.”
He also revealed that Bennington went to his first private audition for Stone Temple Pilots as well:
“It was my first private audition with STP, and he [Chester] called and asked if he could come. He wanted to be there for that first show. So, I put him on my guest list. It was very cool that he could be there for that.”
During Stone Temple Pilots’ show at The Canyon in Santa Clarita, CA last night (March 2), the band were joined onstage by some special guests including Johnny Depp and Wayne Kramer (MC5). They also played a cover of MC5‘s “Kick Out The Jams.“
