STP’s Weiland, Limp Bizkit’s Durst Tap Members Of Orgy, Porno For Pyros, Cult For Sly Fox Cover

It was an all-star summit of new wave metal and vintage alternative rock this weekend, as Limp Bizkit singer Fred Durst and Orgy guitarist Ryan Shuck hooked up in a Los Angeles studio with Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland and ex-Cult vocalist Ian Astbury to record a new version of the 1985 Sly Fox pacifist rave, “Let’s Go All the Way.”

Rounding out the line-up was former Porno for Pyros bassist Martyn LeNoble, who played on Weiland’s “12 Bar Blues” album, and F.I.N.E. singer Ashley Hamilton, the man responsible for putting the session together.

For the song, which Hamilton says was recorded for an undetermined film soundtrack, Weiland shared vocal duties with Hamilton and Astbury, LeNoble and Shuck handles their familiar instruments, while Durst sat in the production chair.

The recent flurry of studio activity for Weiland, who is also set to appear on the next Limp Bizkit record (see “Korn’s Davis, Weiland To Appear On Next
Limp Bizkit Album”
), may be hopeful sign that the singer is ready to return to the studio with his STP bandmates.

Prior to his drug bust in New York City last June, Weiland predicted that Stone Temple Pilot would reform in early ’99 to record a new album for release by the end of the year (see “Scott Weiland Discusses New Record, Future Of STP” ).

Two weeks ago, the STP singer spent a few days in an L.A. jail when authorities claimed he had violated terms of his probation agreement stemming from a different, drug-related charge. Weiland was eventually released back to a local halfway house and faces a March 26 hearing for a progress report on his treatment.
