Vocalist Mike Shinoda spoke in an interview with KROQ and revealed his thoughts how Linkin Park could continue without Chester. He said:
“I’ll say just for me, I’m waiting to see what kind of reveals itself. Number one, first and foremost, let’s not forget that Chester was one of the greatest rock singers of all time, period.
That’s not just me as a friend – this dude his voice, there is just nothing like it. Personally I have to wrap my head around the idea that, I want to be able to get up onstage and play a song of ours.
I feel like if we do that and don’t do Chester’s parts and let the crowd sing it, that’s first of all very heavy that we did that at the Hollywood Bowl show. That felt like a million pounds sitting on the top of your stomach.
I know in the context of that night, there were special moments like that. Looking forward into what is the band, those questions have to get answered, and I don’t have the answers. I think by going out into the world and just exploring what’s out there, hopefully I’ll find some of those answers.“
