Yeah I saw that.  I liked Hybrid Theory back in the heyday of rap metal but I haven't listened to them in ages.

RIP.

I was just reading that as well. It's always sad when someone does that. You never know the demons that rage in some people's heads.

I like one of their first songs, I think it is called In the End.

It should also be noted that he died on Chris Cornell's birthday whom he was close with. Sad very sad indeed was never a fan. I think the best tribute ive read yet to him is from Ozzy's son Jack Osbourne, it paints a nice picture on who Chester was.

I did not even know that he sung for STP for a few years.

Yup when Scott Weiland got fired they replaced him with Chester, they did one EP together then Weiland went on to form Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts

The one time I saw Weiland live he did alot from STP and Velvet Revolver and he did a David Bowie cover, this is the setlist when I saw him all the STP stuff he did minus Tumble in the Rough and Big Bang Baby were from the first 2 albums, the 2 songs i mentioned were on their 3rd album (the one that converted me) only 3 songs that would end up being on Blaster

1) Crackerman (Stone Temple Pilots)
2) Tumble In the Rough (Stone Temple Pilots)
3) Do It For the Kids (Velvet Revolver)
4) The Way She Moves (Upcoming album)
5) The Jean Genie (David Bowie cover)
6) Big Bang Baby (Stone Temple Pilots)
7) Sucker Train Blues (Velvet Revolver)
Cool Big Empty (Stone Temple Pilots)
9) Slither (Velvet Revolver)
10) Vasoline (Stone Temple Pilots)
11) Beach Pop Rock (Upcoming)
12) Dead and Bloated (Stone Temple Pilots)

This was sad news though I never was a fan of the band. I have the Hyprid theory and there are songs I like. But.. you know.. itīs just sad that a talented person, father and husband of his family sees no other way that to kill himself, itīs just waste.

I think it also tells about the stress and demands of being in entertainment business. You cannot be weak. Itīs bad when you have to "medicine" yourself with alcohol and drugs. First Chris Cornell and now Chester, who is next?
