Stone Temple Pilots Did Something Incredible At Chester Bennington’s Funeral


On Saturday, July 29th, late Linkin Park and Stone Temple Pilots frontman Chester Bennington’s private service at South Coast Botanical Garden in Palos Verdes Estates hosted more than five hundred family members and close friends. Ted Stryker of KROQ led the service.

Chester’s Stone Temple Pilots bandmates Robert and Dean DeLeo, ex-Velvet Revolver/Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum, Damon Fox, and Jimmy Gnecco teamed up for a powerful and poignant rendition of “Amazing Grace”. Ryan Shuck — who comprised Dead By Sunrise with Chester — and Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn were among the friends who gave heartfelt eulogies.

Robert DeLeo tweeted the following.
