During the recent interview with SiriusXM’s Volume West, Linkin Park bassist Dave ‘Phoenix’ Farrell has shared the future plans of the band. He indirectly responded to expectings of Chester Bennington’s family.
As we reported yesterday, Chester Bennington’s brother-in-law John Knehr has stated what they expect from Linkin Park members. He said:
“We don’t expect the guys from LP to not move on. We support them in the future if they do chose to get another lead singer that can do justice to the old songs and make the new ones his or her own! Better than a one man band using the crowd to sing parts he can’t! NGJ
We want and love hearing fans singing along with the music! That what every artist dreams of! But put the band back together get a lead singer that can do them justice and make the new one him or her own! Not this karaoke show! If that’s not support I don’t know what is! NGJ”
Bassist Dave Phoenix Farrell talked with Volume West and said:
“The five of us, we still love getting a chance to hang out. We hang out quite a bit. I think we will do music again. We all want to. We all still enjoy being together and being around each other.
But we have a huge process to figure out what we wanna do and what that’s gonna look like. And I don’t have a timetable for how long that’ll take. I’ve never been down that road [or gone through] that process completely, so it’s really hard to put a time or a day.
In fairness, one of the things that I think has been ridiculously cool about Linkin Park fans and our fanbase is how supportive they’ve been of us in that process. Social media, notoriously, can be a really negative place, and it is, like, 99.9 percent positive — what I see — from our fans just saying, ‘We’re here.
We want to hear what you guys are doing. We want to be involved, but we get it. We want you guys also to be healthy and happy, and do what’s right for you as well.’ And we hear that message — we receive that, we get that from that community and from that fanbase — and it’s really, really something that is special, and I can’t say ‘thank you’ enough for that.“
As you remember, Chester Bennington’s sister Tobi claimed that Linkin Park singer Mike Shinoda of mistreating Chester throughout the years. She also claimed that her Twitter account was hacked and she was silenced after her claims against Linkin Park singer Mike Shinoda. Click here to details.
