Slipknot's Corey Taylor says Chester Bennington was a ''sweetheart of a guy''.

The 43-year-old singer was close friends with the Linkin Park star - who died by suicide earlier this year - and Corey has defended him against people who called him ''cowardly'' for the way he died.

Explaining that Chester battled with mental health issues, Corey explained on 'Larry King Now': ''Unless you've walked in those shoes, you don't understand the pain, the weight of carrying that along, and there's no right way to deal with it,'' Corey said. ''There's no universal fix-all. So you spend your whole life trying to find what works for you. I am just glad I got the time I had with him.''

Linkin Park ''don't care'' if people think they've sold out.

The US rockers - who will release their seventh studio album, 'One More Light', later this month following a three-year absence - are not interested in critics of their current, more poppy, sound and don't think people should read too much into it.

Frontman Chester Bennington said: ''We were asked, 'What do you think of people who say you sold out?' I don't care.

You Can Take Scott Weiland Out Of Stone Temple Pilots, But You Can't Take The Pilot Out Of Weiland


Stone Temple Pilots Scott Weiland Chester Bennington

Stone Temple Pilots, the band, is pressing on with performances, but former vocalist Scott Weiland isn’t happy. After he split up from bandmates Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz, Weiland maintains that the band is no longer the same – to the point where it shouldn’t be called Stone Temple Pilots anymore.

The alternative rocker explained himself in a statement on his website earlier this week, USA Today reports. In it, Weiland claimed: "Like any band that's stood the test of time and made music for more than two decades, STP had a special alchemy — the four of us together were greater than any one of us apart. So if my former bandmates want to tour with a new singer, that's their prerogative. ... But it's not Stone Temple Pilots."

His statement comes on the heals of a few gigs that the remaining members of STP performed with Linking Park lead singer Chester Bennington in California recently. Apparently, Weiland thinks the replacement is not only unethical to him, but also dishonest to fans of the band. In the statement, Weiland goes as far to claim that for the members to continue calling themselves Stone Temple Pilots, because “"because [he is] still a member of the band. And more importantly, they don't have the ethical right to call themselves Stone Temple Pilots because it's misleading and dishonest to the millions of fans that have followed us for so many years.”
