    We've had people write us yelling at us and telling us that we're defaming Rob by putting that up there. Rob admitted it himself a while back in an interview. It's like wtf people :lol:.

    I knew that Chester and Rob were struggling with drugs, but not the rest of the band. As long as they stopped, I don't care.

    If they still smoke I wouldn't care. I really do not find Marijuana to be that bad of a drug, even though I've never partaken in smoking it myself. Cigarettes (which are legal) are full of tar, ammonia, embalming fluid and other surprising chemicals you wouldn't expect to be there. I'd be more upset knowing Chester/other band members still smoke cigarettes then if I found out they lighted up a doob.

    All I know is, one of my goals in life is to get stoned with Mike Shinoda, and this helps me know that my goal is a little bit more attainable

    I've never smoked pot, but if Mike wanted to do it with me, I would not be adverse to that. No.

    I suppose. It just seemed very awkward the way it was phrased. Either way, i still don't see the big deal. :)


    That is old news to me. I read that a while back. I guess it seemed so insignificant that i forgot all about it until now.:lol:

    So now the thread's gone from people being surprised to "Oh yeah, Rob did drugs, you didn't know?" :p

    Knew about the drinking, not the drugs. He didn't seem like that type of guy, oh well. Overall, glad to see all of them sober.

    This!

    Actually I'm not surprised with the pot and alcohol part. Not at all... I mean, Just search for an old live footage of them or behind the scenes footage or interviews (Hybrid era) they seemed to me like potheads...
    Anyway, I find this interview very interesting and very open, wich is cool. And I hope they keep it clean.
    Can't wait for the next album (as I'm listening now to the new In Flames album-Fuckin' awwesomeee!)

    Never smoked pot before, but if they ask me, I won't be turning them down :D

    Hah, didn't suppose Rob was an addict too. He looks clean to me, now.

    I remember watching a video a long time ago when they were called HT. Chester was blatently stoned! I used to smoke weed a lot when I was younger so I know a stoned person when I see one! Also, having read all this about the possibility of Mike smoking weed/pot I had to watch the video again. It's possible he could have been stoned. The only real clues are on the 2:20 (approx) mark and near the end. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9FLCgb0Oz0&feature=related
    It's quite a funny video.

    This is my favourite quote on the thread. I agree 100% with what you say.

    It provides a much bigger insight to the writing process and how/why events in the band members lives (mainly Chester) has changed the style and content of their music in recent years. A very informative and somewhat educational interview.
