Stone Temple Pilots took to the stage at The Shindig Festival in Baltimore, Maryland and surprised people for many reasons. There were several people there who didn’t know that Scott Weiland was not in the band anymore as well as many who did not know that Chester Bennington from Linkin Park was now handling lead vocal duties. Although their voices are very different, Beddington took to the stage and belted out classic STP songs one after another and won many in the crowd over. Yes, there will always be a percentage of people there who do not like change and they will never give Bennington a fair chance. It’s a shame because Bennington does a stellar job in fronting this band and had that huge crowd singing along with him to just about every song performed.
