STONE TEMPLE PILOTS have found an unlikely replacement for their much troubled singer Scott Weiland, who exited the band he founded, without much sadness of the remaining members[/b]. The spot from now on will be taken by LINKIN PARK frontman Chester Bennington. Bennington is a very wide orientated singer, who is not always taken as seriously as he should, due to the popularity of his own band. The band already announced that the new singer had to be someone famous who helps selling concert tickets, which is exactly the accusation Scott Weiland made on the bands decision to kick him out.

In 1983, he returned to URIAH HEEP and has appeared on all of the band's studio albums since then, including their most recent outing, 2011's "Into The Wild".

AS I LAY DYING frontman Tim Lambesis' attorney believes his client may have been the victim of a setup in connection with the singer's alleged attempt to hire someone to kill Lambesis' estranged wife. Tim was arrested without incident on Tuesday (May 7) around 2 p.m. at a Barnes & Noble bookstore in Oceanside, California and was ordered held on $3 million bail during his arraignment hearing on Thursday. He faces nine years in state prison if convicted. Prosecutors initially requested that Superior Court Judge Martin Staven set Lambesis' bail at $20 million, saying the singer remains "substantially motivated to kill his wife.". Speaking to Artisan News, Tim's attorney, Anthony Salerno (not related to Sabrina Salerno), revealed that Tim's charges were a lot heavier initially, with the potential consequences being life in jail. "He was arrested for conspiracy to commit murder, which carries a life sentence, as well as being booked for soliciting murder," Salerno said. "I won't necessarily get too deep [in the details of] the law surrounding conspiracy, but I came to believe very strongly that there is absolutely no way that he could be even charged with conspiracy, much less convicted of it. [So] one of the first things I did was to reach out directly to the [district attorney] that was assigned to the case and had some conversations with her. And she, in fact, did decide for Tim not to be charged with conspiracy, which was a big victory, 'cause that took a potential life sentence off the table before he was even charged. That's something that jumped out at me right away that I needed to do that early intervention so we did that."

The man is Michael McKagan, better known to the world as "Duff." The band is Guns N' Roses.
