No Chester Bennington? No problem. Not when Joss Stone can step up to the mic.
Just hours after Bennington announced his departure from Stone Temple Pilots, the rock group got a blast of soul when Stone dropped by for a Mashup Monday session. And the song? “Interstate Love Song” of course, a grinding classic from the Scott Weiland-era STP.
The timely creation of the Joss Stone Temple Pilots “supergroup” was a one-off for Jimmy Kimmel Live, which has returned its popular Mashup Mondays segment for the month of November.
The latest round of pun-packed pairings kicked off Nov. 2 with the Brad Paisley-meets-Color Me Badd union…Color Me Bradd. Previous mashups included Weezer teaming with ZZ Top (Wee-Z Top), Kenny G joining forces with Warren G (Kenny & Warren G); Morris Day and The Time working with Haim (Morris Day and the Haim); and Blackstreet jamming with Aloe Blacc (Aloe Blaccstreet).
