LINKIN PARK Singer Says He Is Not Impressed By OZZFEST 2004 Lineup - July 28, 2004
06.05.2008LINKIN PARK's just-started Projekt Revolution festival tour is scoring better advance sales than Ozzy Osbourne's Ozzfest in almost every market this summer, according to Launch Radio Networks. LINKIN PARK frontman Chester Bennington said he's not surprised, and that he's not particularly impressed with Ozzfest's lineup this year: "It's just too much of the same thing," Chester told Launch. "Usually, Ozzfest is pretty diverse, especially with metal, 'cause metal is so wide-ranged, like you could pretty much go all over the spectrum with a metal show. But even their bands are kind of all along the same super-metal genre, and you're gonna draw a very pigeonholed kind of audience with those kinds of lineups."
In addition to LINKIN PARK, Projekt Revolution mixes the hard rock of KORN, THE USED, FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND, and DOWNSET with rappers like SNOOP DOGG and GHOSTFACE and punk with LESS THAN JAKE.
Ozzfest's lineup this year is topped by BLACK SABBATH, JUDAS PRIEST, SLAYER, SLIPKNOT, and SUPERJOINT RITUAL.
