During the recent interview with Meltdown of the Detroit, Michigan radio station 101 WRIF, Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix talked about his collaboration with Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton.
“I had the honor of singing on Mark’s record, and what a great record it is. One of the coolest parts of this album to me is the track he did with Chester Bennington. That was, I believe, the last song Chester recorded. I think there’s something really special about that.
I love Mark — Mark is a great guitar player. Lamb of God, they are my favorite metal band, period. To be able to collaborate with Mark and to meet him and just hang and stuff like that, he’s just such a great guy, and I think the world of him. I think he’s dope.”
He also descriped his feelings about late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington, and said:
“It’s an incredible tragedy that we lost him. He was just a great guy. He and I struggled with some of the same things. Just to know that he made that choice really gutted me.
I look back on that and I’m like, ‘Man, I wish I could have just called him up or chatted with him’… It’s a tough situation. [I] miss him; [I] love him. I just went on my morning run today and was listening to Linkin Park, just vibing on Chester. [It] bums me out, man.”
