Linkin Park And Horrors Collaboration?
07.05.2008Speaking exclusively to Xfm, Linkin Park's frontman Chester Bennington revealed that he's a massive fan of goth-rockers The Horrors and hinted at a possible future collaboration.
Famed for their musical collaborations with the likes of Jay-Z and Busta Rhymes, Linkin Park's frontman Chester Bennington revealed that there were plenty more potentials in the pipeline.
"There is some collaborations we're thinking about working on right now", he admintted, "But I can't say who they are yet in case it doesn't happen. There's so many great artists out right now, I could just put a bunch of names in a hat and pick one and it'd be really cool."
As for which artists he'd like to work with specifically Bennington continued,
"There's a lot of British artists - I think Amy Winehouse is really good, I heard a Babyshambles song the other day and I thought it was really interesting and actually kinda cool and I was surprised by that as I wasn't sure what to expect.
"Arctic Monkeys are really great and I also really like The Horrors, they're probably my favourite band right now."
The band are currently on a high - despite Bennington breaking his wrist on stage (but finishing the show, telling Xfm it would take "someone to cut his arm off to cancel a peformance") - having just won 'Band Of 2007' at the MTV Europe Awards.
As for which band name might be picked out of the proverbial hat, that remains to be seen. But with Linkin Park coming to tour the UK in January 2008 (read more) they'll be plenty of opportunites for them to get the ball rolling.
