Former Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland is not mad at his replacement.  Linkin Park's Chester Bennington recently joined Stone Temple Pilots as the band's new lead singer.

Weiland tells The Pulse of Radio, "I've known Chester for a long time.  I got to be pretty close with him on the Family Values tour.  I don't think Chester did it in a spiteful way.  The brothers DeLeo, they can be pretty persuasive."

Weiland and his former bandmates, however, are still battling it out.  Weiland and STP have both sued each other following Scott's dismissal from the band.
