Congratulations are in order for former STONE TEMPLE PILOTS bassist Robert DeLeo and his wife Kristen DeLeo, who welcomed the arrival of their new baby, Duke Vincent, on August 7, 2005. Duke came in weighing 7 lbs. and sporting a full head of black hair.
Robert DeLeo is believed to have formed a new project with brother and fellow former STONE TEMPLE PILOTS member Dean DeLeo (guitar) and FILTER mainman Richard Patrick. Veteran session drummer Ray Luzier is apparently leaving ex-VAN HALEN singer David Lee Roth's tour to join the group, which reportedly has signed a deal with Columbia Records.
