lpliveusername Posted April 14, 2020 Share Posted April 14, 2020 During the April 13th live stream, Mike Shinoda gave some interesting information about Linkin Park. Check out the full Q&A below! - "Have you ever considered using one of Anna's poems as an interlude like the speeches on A Thousand Suns?" -> "Yeah, I used some of her poems in conjunction with Post Traumatic. If we ended up being on the same creative subject, I could see that working out, that would make sense but it hasn't happened yet." - Dan Mayo tried sea urchin on the Post Traumatic Tour and he became quite angry at how bad it tasted. - When Mike is away he likes to host other streams on Twitch, so he hosts Bob Ross, Questlove, The Roots, and more. - "Do you at some point transfer things from Maschine to Daw?" -> "Yeah absolutely, I do it for every sound. it's a little bit of a pain in the ass but I get to mentally pay attention to every single sound as I put it into the track/recording it into the sound. So I'm almost double checking to make sure I like each little part and sometimes I'll find stuff where I want to change the pattern or putting EQ on it." - "Will we get a new LPU CD?" -> "I think so, but I am not sure. This year is the Hybrid Theory 20th anniversary so we are putting a lot of love into that. It'd be silly to like... we've released so many Hybrid Theory demos that I don't know that we have much more to do that with after the 20th anniversary release. It's probably best to ask Ana and the LPU team about that when it comes up. I don't know what they were planning. The demo thing is like... there are just so many demos." - "Is there any instrument you'd like to use that you haven't used?" -> The thing is, I could do some live drums but I am not a good drummer. But that means we would have to figure out ProTools and we'd have to figure out a live cam which I currently don't have." - "Is "Looking For An Answer going to be released?" -> "At this point probably not. I felt like it was a special moment in the celebration show. It wasn't my best performance of the thing to be honest, but it is what it is. I don't know if we could put out a version that would do it more justice than that." If fans remember, Mike worked on a studio version of "Looking For An Answer" in December 2017, and said that he sent the song to the rest of the band at that time and he knew Rob was going to at least work on drums for it. He said it could be played live on the Post Traumatic Tour if fans wanted to see it, but the song ended up not being played.
