    Due to speak to Chester at around 3PM my local time today. Although the last few times I've made a post like this, some of the responses and suggestions have been pretty terrible :)lol:), I'm opening up this thread for fan questions.

    The interview is in regards to the STP Tour, so of course try to think up some STP related questions, but also don't be afraid to ask LP questions too. I'll try my hardest (depending on time) to ask a few of them as long as they don't suck!

    1. How's the leg?
    2. How is the new album going / Will they play new material live?
    3. How is it facing a crowd still sceptical towards Chester as the singer of STP?
    4. What was the new song LP rehearsed to play during the North American tour?

    Ask him about Mark the graves? Personally, I am always curious as to how that song came to be on this album.


    Wait, so Chester wrote war right? So ask him about that, maybe about how much he writes songs on his own. It would be relevant because he's with STP right now. So, it would let him talk about that too. I am a genius see? Kidding.

    Ask him about his voice, since so many people here keep talking about 'he's not the same' and all that.

    Ask him if LP would ever go into industrial, after White Noise (I'm sure people on LPA would want to know that ha)

    And then, ask him if he'll ever come to my godamned country :kappa:

    How different or similar is the new STP music from High Rise and what genres and sounds have you/do you wish to explore with this new music?
    Were your songwriting for the new music based on building part-by-part (like how LP make most of their music) or jamming?

    (Also is it ok to ask questions to the other STP band members or just Chester)

    Sorry if they're quite underwhelming :lol:

    1. AS other mentioned: How is the leg?
    2. Did they think each 18 months a new album work for the good or did they want to make another break soon.
    3. Probaly ask him why they said they want to play ALITS and War but didnt do it to date (or if they planned to do it on the canceled tour)
    4.Ask him about the state of rock music, would be interesting to hear something non-Mikey words :kappa:

    After his leg/other nice questions-

    Where's the making of THP?!
    Have any of your friends been working on a new hip-hop related side project?
    How much have you sweated on stage over your career?

    *obligatory 4 STP questions*

    Has Linkin Park been working on new stuff in the past few months?
    Will there be more dates added to the European tour in August/September?

    Well, definitely ask him about the next direction Linkin Park will head in. The answer will probably be pretty vague, but still.

    ask his opinion on drugs legalization, religion and if DBS will ever come back.

    id like to know his opinion on these kind of topics (even if he gives a vague answer) more than what will LP7 sound like, because we will eventually know it anyway.

    See: LPU releases.

    EDIT: Questions for Chester in regards to STP...

    1. Why have you failed to uphold the tradition of a megaphone for certain songs?
    2. How does it feel to karaoke your favorite songs every night?
    3. Do your STP bandmates hate Somewhere I Belong as much as everyone else? Why or why not?

    Hearing STP's opinion towards LP would actually be interesting. I'm sure Chester will say that they support the band and enjoy their music, and vice versa in regards to LP with STP, but I wonder if STP actually like LP, or if they just recognised Chester's talent as a vocalist.

    You know that answer to that question is "the songs change all the time so we don't know how the album will turn out"

    How are none of you mentioning FORT MINOR? Ask him if Mike is really returning to FM while he's out with STP.

    Because these are questions for Chester Bennington that are supposed to be about STP, which nobody seems to really be paying attention to.

    Thank you. His response will be one of the following answers:

    "I believe you'd want to talk to Mike about that..."
    "I have no clue."
    "Sorry but I'm not a part of that so I don't know what's going on."

    Or a combination thereof. It's kind of pointless to ask Chester about something he has 0 part in.
