Mike Shinoda on Linkin Park's future: "I can't do a hologram Chester" https://t.co/gOE1VSy2RB— billboard (@billboard) December 17, 2017
The future of Linkin Park has been up in the air since their lead singer Chester Bennington passed away.
Linkin Park’s vocalist and producer Mike Shinoda recently went on Instagram Live to answer fan questions and he ruled out the possibility of touring with a hologram.
He said, “Can we not do a holographic Chester? I can’t even wrap my head around the idea of a holographic Chester. I’ve actually heard other people outside the band suggest that, and there’s absolutely no way. I cannot f—k with that. I can’t do a hologram Chester you guys, that would be the worst. For any of you guys who have lost a loved one, best friend, family member, can you imagine having a hologram of them? Awful. I can’t do it. I don’t know what we’re going to do, but we’ll figure it out eventually.
”On Friday, Linking Park released “One More Night Live,” which features 16 songs from the European leg of their tour of the same name.
I did a listening party on Instagram Live today for the new album. I left early, and didn’t really give a reason. To be honest, it was because it’s hard for me to listen to Chester’s voice for that long. I‘m fine, I just wanted you to know. Thanks for understanding. 🙏🏽❤️— Mike Shinoda (@mikeshinoda) December 16, 2017
Honestly the fact that Mike had to awnser the question about hologram Chester is sad— ♠🌟🕯T@bi🕯🌟♠ (@ShadowCCB2) December 16, 2017
Personally it would fuck me up if I saw that.
And I think it would fuck Mike up too
Whatever lp decide to do, they definitely will never replace chester with a fucking hologram. Apart from the awfulness of this idea, have you ever seen a band tour with a pixel figure?— Linkin Park 🖤🎗 (@HybridMShinoda) December 16, 2017
