During the recent interview with Cane and Kevan Kenney of ALT 92.3, Linkin Park singer Mike Shinoda has revealed what he wants from fans about late singer Chester Bennington.
Here’s the statement:
“My perspective on it is that I was out there to thank the fans for their support and thank them for the way they were celebrating Chester. It’s the way that I would want them to. And also go out there and kind of guide that and let people know I wanna see people remembering… Remember your favorite songs, remember how great his voice was, remember all the wonderful things he did with things like charity and they way he was talking to people.
He was a wonderful guy. He was one of my best friends, obviously. And I wanted the fans to remember that and I wanted to have those moments… I felt like I was comfortable having those moments in the shows.”
He also said:
“I probably should go out on tour. I will see fans who will cry. I will see fans who will tell me their personal stories and their personal… not only just their connections to Chester and to the band, and probably bring up stuff that makes me uncomfortable or makes me sad, or whatever, but also tell me stories about their own lives that are hard to listen to.
And can I listen to potentially lots of those every single night I go out?’ And I realized, after I’d done a few… I did a few things — I did a few signings, I did a few little things — and I realized, ‘You know what? I’m okay with this.'”
