Linkin Park will not be subjecting the world to the horrors of a hologram Chester Bennington, fortunately. Based on Linkin Park‘s Mike Shinoda in an interview with 94.5 The Buzz, the concept of getting a hologram Bennington is creepy, although he will get how the know-how may work for different artists.
“These are creepy. Even when we weren’t speaking about us, if we weren’t speaking about Chester, which is… that is a really delicate topic, and we might have our emotions about how we might symbolize that… For me, that is a transparent no; I am not into that. However whilst a viewer of, like, only a fan of one other band — like I heard ABBA, for instance, they’re doing a hologram present, they usually’re nonetheless alive.
“Then you get to have an opinion about it based on, like… They’re all still here, and yet they wanna do it this way because they wanna transport you back to that moment in time where those songs were new and it was whatever era it was. I get that; I see that. I’m not positive, even under those circumstances, I’m not positive I personally would buy a ticket to the show. But [other people] would. That’s fine.”
Shinoda later added that he would not care if different folks take pleasure in hologram-fronted bands, however says that he is not into it. And to be honest, it does appear to be the entire “put a hologram of a dead person on stage” factor is dying out. In fact the primary one within the steel world being the extremely-divisive hologram Ronnie James Dio.
“The problem with the Internet now is that everybody thinks that everything is for everybody. And what I mean is everyone feels like they need to chime in, like, ‘Well, here’s my opinion. This is what I have to say. And if it’s not for me, like if I don’t like it, then nobody should like it.’ That’s not the way the world works. If you like a thing and I don’t like the thing, then you go see the thing; you go buy the thing.”
