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.”

Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda Releases New EP “Post Traumatic”

Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park, Fort Minor) has released a new three-song solo EP titled “Post Traumatic.” You can find videos for all three tacks (“Place To Start,“ “Over Again,” and “Watching As I Fall“) below:

Shinoda commented:

“The past six months have been a rollercoaster. Amidst the chaos, I’ve started to feel an intense gratitude–for your tributes and messages of support, for the career you have allowed me to have, and for the simple opportunity to create.

Today, I’m sharing three songs I wrote and produced, with visuals that I filmed, painted, and edited myself. At its core, grief is a personal, intimate experience. As such, this is not Linkin Park, nor is it Fort Minor–it’s just me.

Art has always been the place I go when I need to sort through the complexity and confusion of the road ahead. I don’t know where this path goes, but I’m grateful I get to share it with you.”
