New Stone Temple Pilots singer Jeff Gutt discussed his connection to Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell in a new SiriusXM interview with Eddie Trunk. Alternative Nation transcribed Gutt’s comments.

“I was actually in a band called Dry Cell, which was on Warner Brothers around the same time as Linkin Park. That was how I knew Chester, that’s when I first met him, in 2001 when they first came out, and we were signed by the same guy.”

He later discussed singing “Hunger Strike.”

“I never wanted to a singer. I always wanted to be the guy on the side, I never wanted to have the spotlight on me. It always made me a little uncomfortable. But then I realized that I had this natural gift of- I think it’s more listening and being able to hear if you’re in pitch or not, it’s more of your ear than your throat, but I had that ability.

I was always the guy showing the singer which to sing, so at one point, strangely enough the first time I put the guitar down, and just sang and held the microphone in front of people, it was Hunger Strike. It’s crazy, because Chester and Chris Cornell had that version. That was the first time.”

Gutt also mentioned that he had ‘studied’ Scott Weiland, STP’s original frontman.

    I don’t know who Jeff Gutt is, and I don’t care. I own all the STP albums through the one with Days of the Week on it. That band is over, done, history. I will not be tuning in for whatever cash grab they angle they try.

    Go have fun putting that STP flag up in daylight slots of the festival circuit. I’ll be home listening to the real thing.

        The band is over man. It has been. We’re moving on.

        Why not restart Talk Show and put Gutt in there?

        To me it’s a shame, but go enjoy it.

      I felt that after two lead singers passed away, that it might be time to disband.

      But I guess the group had other ideas.

      The album with Days of the Week on it is called Shangri La Dee Da, the Deleo brothers especially Dean brings up that Weiland cost them millions and that Shangri La was supposed their 7th album. As long as Gutt can play the hits, they will keep touring under the STP name. Never once did Jerry Cantrell ever say Layne Staley cost him millions.
