Meanwhile, singer Chester Bennington is recovering from that mystery ailment which caused him to be in so much pain about eight weeks ago he was hospitalized in Los Angeles. MTV.com reports that Bennington will need surgery for what turned out to be a hiatal hernia, a painful condition that causes nausea and back pain.
