  1. This is really really cool. The digital marketing for this band has always been so good, it’s almost surreal to see them bringing back puzzles and everything like the good old days.
  2. I think speculation is a dangerous road when it comes to something like this, and I don’t think any of us should take speculation or assumptions as something akin to truth. There are any number of factors that go into things like depression. With that said, the OML reaction (at least the online one) is 100% the elephant in the room as said above. We cannot say that it was the “cause” or anything like that, but we also can’t ignore it. Anyone who follows the band, watches the videos, attended or watched or listened to live recordings, we all knew how Chester was, and he always very hard on himself. Sean is absolutely correct here, it wouldn’t matter that OML was a number one album, Heavy was a huge single in plenty of places, the band was playing the biggest shows of their entire careers and selling out Europe, adding shows to the UK, selling out South America, about to play stadiums in the US - you don’t see any of the positive stuff when you’re in that state of mind. You only see the negative. Chester was pretty active on social media, and as we all know, any kind of real online criticism (or even praise!) gets drowned out by the countless and tireless trolls and, as Sean says, people who have nothing better to do. All Chester is going to see are insults toward his music and even personal attacks. We know how bad it is online. Look at how people to react to movies or other innocent entertainment that they don’t like. So you have Chester seeing all of this and ignoring all of the positive stuff. He sees a few people booing Heavy at festivals and focuses on them instead of the thousands of people singing every word of all the new songs on tour. The OML songs were very personal, even by LP standards. Chester had just gone through one of the toughest periods in his life, 2015-2016, and all of the music has heavily influenced by that. He openly talks about this in 2017 interviews. He really really cared about the songs, maybe more than ever, and that’s saying something. So to have art that you just poured your heart and soul into, that you’re proud of and excited to share, and to have the reaction be - in your mind - people hating it and insulting you and your band mates and your entire career....that’s something that none of us can ever really understand or even comprehend. I remember back when Dead By Sunrise didn’t end up being as commercially successful as Chester hoped it would, and how he got on Twitter and asked if he had just made a bad record. That hurt. His art was always extremely personal for him, it was his life’s work, it was his passion. Again, we’ll never really know. There are too many things that go into things like this. He had to quit Stone Temple Pilots, had just lost close friends of his; just way too many things happened to him in way too short of a span of time. We’ll never actually know what he was thinking, and there are plenty of factors that we have no business knowing anyway. What we can take away from this realization is this: We can all be kinder, we can all show more empathy, and we all need to be more aware of the words we use and who we say them to. Reach out to your loved ones, be there for them, check in on them. And if you’re suffering, don’t be afraid to let others know. Don’t be ashamed of what bothers you and how it makes you feel. We can choose openness and kindness every time.
  3. Has anyone fixed up the audio sync problems that the stream was having, where it made it seem like the audience singing was horribly out of time with the music? Also, why is your version missing I Miss You?
  4. Joe winning Best Member of the Band is hilarious.
  5. What a nice trip down memory lane. Awesome to see how far this site has come.
  6. So weird that these events happen at video game promotions....
  7. Fantastic interviews with everyone. I sadly can't say that I've been here since the very beginning (joined up during the 08 winter tour) but I think I've been here long enough to truly appreciate how much this site has changed and grown over the years. The fact that it's been around an entire decade is just crazy to think about. I've made some great friends here too, like Mark, Jonas, and Preston. Here's to many more years, many more shows, many more exclusives, many more album discussions, and all of that good stuff. A lot of us have gone on to other things and other bands but I love seeing everyone come back together once a new album starts to come around. I remember being just twelve years old and being elated that I had found a community who loved Linkin Park just as much as I did. I'm twenty-three now and for whatever reason I still love this band just as much and apparently so do plenty of other people. Thanks for tons of great memories LPLive. I'm looking forward to what the future holds.
  8. These are the shows that really remind how great of a vocalist Chester actually is. This is much more his style based on his voice as opposed to most LP stuff. Stupidly talented singer. Great short interview here, really awesome that you were able to get him. Let's hope we see more of these shows in the future now that Chester's schedule is less full.
  9. I'm sure they'll keep the ballad medley in the set for this festival.
  10. If they were to do one more tour for THP (AHEM, USA make up tour), with the same basic structure as they've kept it, this is what I would like. 1. Papercut 2. Given Up 3. Rebellion 4. Points of Authority 5. One Step Closer 6. A Line in the Sand 7. From The Inside 8. All For Nothing 8. Runaway 9. Wastelands 10. Castle of Dance 11. Numb 12. Waiting For The End 13. Mark the Graves 14. Breaking The Habit 15. Darker Than Blood 16. Burn It Down 17. Final Masquerade 18. Remember the Name 19. Welcome 20. In The End 21. What I've Done 22. Bleed It Out ENCORE 23. Guilty All The Same 24. A Place For My Head 25. Faint
  11. That was absolutely disgusting, I love it.
