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."
