Sounds like he isn’t happy about the constant comparisons…
As Linkin Park gear up to release their 7th studio album ONE MORE LIGHT next week, frontman Chester Bennington had a few words to say to those who’re upset about Linkin Park’s evolution in sound over the years. Expressing his annoyance towards the constant comparisons to HYBRID THEORY, the 41 year old said:
“When we made ‘Hybrid Theory’, I was the oldest guy in the band and in my early ’20s. That’s why I guess I’m like: ‘Why are we still talking about ‘Hybrid Theory’? It’s fucking years ago. It’s a great record, we love it. Like, move the fuck on. You know what I mean?”
When asked about his thoughts on the constant comments saying that band have “sold out,” he doesn’t hold back either:
“We were asked, ‘What do you think of people who say you sold out?’ I don’t care,” …. “If you like the music, fantastic. If you don’t like it, that’s your opinion too. Fantastic. If you’re saying we’re doing what we’re doing for a commercial or monetary reason, trying to make success out of some formula… then stab yourself in the face!” he laughed.
Well that’s everyone told. What do you make of Chester’s comments? Justified?
