Mike Jones from DC101 talked to Mike about the Honda Civic Tour, and the actual car they designed. He confirmed that Linkin Park have shot 2 videos (LOST IN THE ECHO & CASTLE OF GLASS) and that we will see LOST IN THE ECHO first, he also says it will be interactive somehow and you need to keep an eye on LP online if you want to be the first to see it, Mike refused to comment on a possible performance at the VMAs, he also talked about video games and working with Medal of Honor and the free ticket giveaway for US Olympians. Thanks Mike Jones for emailing us this.
Also, although a bit late here’s a part of the Linkin Park stage crew talked to us via LPU chat a couple of days ago, it was Sean, Pooch, Jeremy, and Pooch that were on camera mostly. Adam from LPUHQ was there too, but not much then a few others made a brief appearance. Although they mostly joked around (and if you missed it, you missed a hell of a chat it was great!) they did answer a few parts that were relevant.
It was a crazy chat, they called Mike, I believe, at one point but he was busy and couldn’t talk. Sean (whom called him) told him to call back but he never did during the time they were chatting with us. We said hi to Sean’s wife via phone, we received a bear hug by Sean, and they did a group hug (Sean, Pooch, Maurice). So it was absolutely crazy but enjoyable! They unfortunately had to leave and had to work. But we listened to music, they laughed loads, they cursed a few times but because of the rules they stopped cursing. Fans asked them to prank Mike, then call him. It was the band’s day off so Linkin Park weren’t there.
Read a few of them below:
- About Mike Shinoda playing guitar on VICTIMIZED, they’re not sure you’ll have to wait. Not sure if they’ll play it this time around.
- Linkin Park might play Wretches and Kings for Honda Civic Tour but, again, they’re not sure, they were setting up for rehearsals, as the band had a day off they will be in tomorrow.
- Pooch – Runaway (favorite all time Linkin Park song), POWERLESS (favorite song on LIVING THINGS)
- Sean – Don’t Stay (favorite all time Linkin Park song), I’LL BE GONE (favorite song on LIVING THINGS)
- Jeremy said VICTIMIZED (all time favorite Linkin Park song) Pooch and Sean joked that he obviously hadn’t heard many songs.
- What band would you like to see live? Sean: Rammstein Pooch: Muse
- Sean used to have a custom guitar shop, he worked on some of Green Days guitars there.
- Green Guitar Project, coming soon, Chester and Mike are playing them. (refer to Chester talking about them at the X-Games or Mike posting a picture on instagram).
