Brad Delson of Linkin Park Snitched on Sublime With Rome, Manager Says



"Since the incident, that's where really the fun part's begun," Brown said. "Because I got a call from their production manager on Sunday, asking me to squash the story, that they didn't want any more press on it, that they were willing to buy us more weed. This was coming from Mike Shinoda. Which was cool. Trust me, I love Mike, and Chester [Bennington, Linkin Park singer] is one of my very good friends, so we're friends with him, but, you know, Brad is probably the most un-rock 'n' roll guy that I know. Those headphones he wears on stage? He's not wearing those because they're monitors, they're gun headphones so he can't hear anything. Who does that?

"Anyway, ... I'm pretty sure the reason Chester joined Stone Temple Pilots is just so he could still tell people that he's in a rock band. I'm just guessing. 'Cuz Chester is rock 'n' roll. that dude is legit and he's as good as it gets. In no way do I want to slam Chester in any of this, because he is the man."

"It's actually very funny to us. I feel bad for Chester. He's our homie. It's just such a bummer he has to be in a band with dudes like that, but it's true."

Lol. This dude is a mess.

First they point fingers at Mike which prompted Mike to take it to twitter and set things right by denying any involvement from the band whatsoever. Then they point fingers at Chester who got pissed off and set things right on twitter too. So he now licks their ass because they've announced it.

Now since they can't point fingers at those two, they point fingers at Brad who doesn't use any social networking sites to defend himself. If Brad suddenly issues a statement, this idiot of a manager will start pointing fingers at Rob (drummer).

Linkin Park have been adults about this and kept quiet with just very mature statements coming from them but if you push it, they will retaliate. Mike and chester have already started poking fun at Rome and Sublime on twitter because of how unnecessary this has become.

It doesn't matter if you are a rock band or not. Stop fucking crying over it like a 2 year old. That makes you a pussy for whining about it. Heck even Justin Bieber didn't cry so much.


Also,

"Anyway, ... I'm pretty sure the reason Chester joined Stone Temple Pilots is just so he could still tell people that he's in a rock band."

"It's actually very funny to us. I feel bad for Chester. He's our homie. It's just such a bummer he has to be in a band with dudes like that, but it's true."

Are you fucking kidding me? You suck up to Mike and Chester and then make fun of that very band.

Oh yeah, I think Chester just hates being in a band with people that are practically family to him, people that have helped him get clean and sober, that have ultimately changed his life for the better. It must be awful being in one of the biggest bands in the world with people that you love and respect. I bet deep down in his heart Chester just wishes he was in a little band like Sublime, with little morons like Rome, where he could have continued his addictions and watch his life go down the drain.

What a fucking moron.

Because it's so weird that a "rock star" would be a tattle tail over weed.

@101nemesis  also keep in mind that ALL the band members of Linkin Park were ON STAGE WHILE THIS HAPPENED. And if he does go to Rob next I'm gonna just find this guy and make him take it back. It pissed me off when he accused Mike & Chester. Now he's saying Brad Delson isn't rock. I've lost my mind.

@101nemesis I agree, it is stupid to go on several members in the band, if Rome would go to Rob, he would continue on to Phoenix, and then to Joe. I've just written that Sublime should not be famous, because of that one prick.
