Some people seem to be implying that Chester Bennington, a 37 year old man who has been in the industry for over half his life, is incapable of knowing what he's gotten himself into. Yes, Chester does probably have an agreement with STP with regard to working on and releasing X number of albums. An agreement which he either worked on WITH STP or was made aware of before joining the band. STP have not "taken advantage" of Chester, he is a grown man and knows fully the pros and cons of being the lead vocalist of STP. I myself am a diehard LP fan yet I don't share the paranoia of "omgz Cheztur is leaving us" or "i haz a bad feeling about dis". The things people are saying, you'd think Chester is completely unaware of what awaits him and may soon be ambushed by STP with a binding contract to eternal servitude and a new-found dislike for being in LP. Come on guys, let me reiterate: Chester is a grown man, no stranger to the industry, and is more than capable of weighing his options and managing his life. Have faith in the guy. Don't insult Chester's intelligence.
