Stone Temple Pilots Have ‘Unanswered Questions’ About Scott Weiland & Chester Bennington’s Deaths


Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo discussed Scott Weiland and Chester Bennington’s deaths in a new Sacramento Bee interview.

“I think it was more of a personal thing than a professional thing. The tragedies between each person, being Scott and Chester, were very different as well. Scott was in a very long-term decline. I don’t know which hurts more – to watch that over a decade or just the suddenness [of what happened to Chester],” DeLeo said. “They’re both tragic and an incredible loss. When it’s all kind of said and done, I’m still scratching my head man. There are still unanswered questions for me. It just goes beyond words. It’s very, very sad.”

He also discussed being back on the road with new Stone Temple Pilots singer Jeff Gutt.

“Being out playing is an aspect of our lives in STP that we just absolutely love. We love being out there, playing music and being in a room where everybody is tossing energy around,” he said with glee. “That night doesn’t just belong to us. We’re the last people that can claim ownership of an STP show. It belongs to everyone in front of us. We don’t take that for granted and we just love that aspect of it and seeing everybody and just sharing, not only music, but love and this kindred spirit of music.”

    Simply put, it hurts that they are gone.

    And it will probably always hurt.
