With his upcoming dates with Stone Temple Pilots just a little over two weeks away, Linkin Park and Stone Temple Pilots frontman Chester Bennington has begun to do interviews with the press to promote the upcoming tour, and discuss the band's upcoming new material this fall. Recently I had the opportunity to speak with Chester Bennington over the phone for my alternative music website AltWire, and learn more about the upcoming STP album and tour as well as information on Linkin Park's track with Steve Aoki, and his wishes for a new LP album next year. You may read the interview here. We also created a "Behind The Artist" playlist, highlighting some key tracks from the musicians Chester has named as some of his biggest influences. To learn more about the music that lead to Chester being who he is today, check out the article here.
