Bennington Doesn’t Care About Critics, But Hardly Sounds Like It
Michael Deeds of The Idaho Statesman caught up with Chester Bennington of Linkin Park and quizzed the singer on his thoughts on critics who say their ‘Hybrid Theory’ follow-up ‘Meteora’ doesn’t take any risks and is just a copy of their successful sound. “What a fu**ing joke,” he fumed. “It’s like, if you want a band to change their fu**ing style, then that’s fine. But it’s, like, we’re not going to come out as a different band. … My point of view as far as reviews go, is that I really don’t care about what people say about our record. And quite honestly, if we ever get anything above two stars, I’ll be fu**ing surprised. Because we never did on the last record. And it doesn’t matter.” Entertainmentidaho.com has since removed the article.
