Slipknot’s Corey Taylor joined Stone Temple Pilots for a one-off live performance, providing vocals for the currently singer-less band at a recent gig.
With Chester Bennington leaving to focus on his duties with Linkin Park, and former frontman Scott Weiland having passed away in 2015, Stone Temple Pilots are currently without a lead singer.
However, brothers Dean and Robert DeLeo played at an Adopt the Arts benefit concert at The Fonda in Los Angeles last week (May 12). With Guns N’ Roses/Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum backing them, the DeLeo’s and Taylor ran through ‘Sex Type Thing’.

While Stone Temple Pilots don’t have a full-time frontman, they have played gigs this year with singer Justin Wright fronting the band. As Loudwire reports, Wright took vocals during a gig in California on Friday while his father, ‘Dream Weaver’ singer Gary Wright, also got on stage with the band.
Stone Temple Pilots started the process to find a replacement for Bennington in February, when the band announced that they would be holding open auditions to replace the singer.
Corey Taylor, meanwhile, recently confirmed eclectic plans for the rest of the year. He’ll make a guest appearance on a future episode of BBC panel show QI, while Slipknot will stage a joint metal festival with Ozzy Osbourne in September
