I think I put off posting my SDP (Stone Temple Pilots) photos from Aftershock
late last month, because I couldn't think of anything to say in a review, other than "they sounded like Linkin Park
songs"--and that statement failed to do justice to the show, which was really good. Chester Bennington is an excellent, strong and present front man. STP's
music is great to hear. And implying that this was just a Linkin Park
cover of classic 80's-90's rock just didn't do the show justice. And so I procrastinated, published other Aftershock
photos and reviews, went on a trip to the UK, did other stuff.

Rumours of a split started circulating this weekend, and Rolling Stone published a report yesterday,
stating that Chester Bennington and STP were no longer together: Chester to focus on Linkin Park

As Aftershock was the last time STP and Chester performed together, we had the final chance to see them as a unit... even though it did sound very, very much like Linkin Park singing Stone Temple Pilots. And I seriously do not mean that in any negative way.

What next for STP? Will they invite Scott
back? He was here too recently, playing a much smaller venue, Orangevale's Boardwalk
, with the Wildabouts
. There would be a lot of long-time STP fans who would be "wild about" seeing the band reunited... as long as there is sobriety involved!
