hahninator Posted July 14, 2015 Share Posted July 14, 2015 There's a great new interview with Mike up on Absolute Punk here. A few highlights: - On Fort Minor's live shows: "The idea of undertaking and putting together a Fort Minor tour sounded crazy to me. It sounded not really doable, and then I realized if I was a DJ, it would make a lot more sense. It would be a lot more fun. I could just go and roll in on my own, with basically like a flash drive, and do DJ sets. That got me thinking, and that evolved into the show that I’ve got now, which is a very compact rig that a couple of techs and I can fly with. We can play shows locally in between Linkin Park shows here and there." - On new Linkin Park music: "Yeah, we’re already starting to throw ideas together. I’m always writing. It’s always an ongoing process for me, but we never know. Chester and I joke that we’ve already made the mistake of telling people what the next record is going to sound like. I remember on Minutes to Midnight, we wrote a couple really heavy songs. He went out and told people, “Oh, this album is going to be the heaviest record we’ve ever made.” Then it ended up that only two of those songs made the cut [laughs], and the rest of them did not. People were just like, “Wait, what the fuck? You told us this record was going to sound like…”" - On a possible Hybrid Theory club show in October: "That’s possible. We’ll see, you know? I don’t know what’s going to happen. It’s funny. We haven’t done very many celebratory events for Hybrid Theory. We didn’t have a big 10-year thing, and we’re not planning any major 15-year thing. We’ll see what happens, but we aren’t planning any major celebrations." The interview touches on everything from Linkin Park's new business ventures to a lot of Fort Minor discussion. It's definitely worth a read! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
