A Perfect Circle x Linkin Park - "Eat The Elephant"

Eat The Elephant
"It’s in a different form now to how it was originally, but all the notes are the same. I handed a demo for it to [Eat The Elephant producer] Dave Sardy and my manager and said, ‘What do you think about this?’ It’s a song I was thinking of for [billy’s other band] Ashes Divide. Chester from Linkin Park had texted me and asked if I wanted to co-write a song for their record. We talked about going into the studio to write, but this song was my ace in the hole, in case we didn’t come up with anything on the fly. Chester took his own life, and that event prompted me in a whirlwind of grief to finish that song. In a way it’s a dedication to him."

Cool info. Makes you wonder who else the band reached out to during the creation of One More Light.

 

Also, seems like Chester made a lot of friends on that particular tour, Projekt Revolution 2008. Chris Cornell, Billy from Ashes Divide/A Perfect Circle, Frank from Street Drum Corps (was once drummer for Julien-K years after and now with Sum 41, but he was the drummer in DBS in 2017 and Chester was talking with him about doing DBS shows in the future). Then Busta Rhymes too who was friends with Mike and Chester.
