Resoconto della Chattata con Rob su LPU

Scritto da Stuz, il 19 Novembre 2009


La chat con Rob sul sito di LPUnderground si è svolta questa notte ed abbiamo avuto delle notizie davvero liete.

Ve ne elenchiamo qualcuna qui sotto:


eng42ine: Hey Rob, pensate di rilasciare in formato DSP qualche vecchio show? Tipo Mountain View 2004 o qualcosa del genere?
rbourdon: Si, stavamo pensando di rilasciare qualcuno dei nostri show più vecchi che abbiamo registrato. Non sono sicuro che abbiamo registrazioni risalenti al 2004 ma stiamo per rilasciare qualsiasi cosa abbiamo disponibile. E' nei nostri programmi e speriamo che succederà presto.

nkramar: State pensando di celebrare il decimo anniversario di Hybrid Theory in maniera particolare? Magari suonando live l'intero album?
rbourdon: Si, ne abbiamo parlato tra noi di questa cosa, ma non sono ancora sicuro di cosa faremo. Non posso crederci, sono già passati 10 anni!

raaaaphy: Suonerete mai No Roads Left dal vivo? L'intero LPUnderground l'apprezzerebbe davvero moltissimo.
rbourdon: Non credo che lo suoneremo, ci abbiamo provato in studio ma non ci è piaciuto come rende dal vivo.

cuzer: Avete in programma di rilasciare altre vecchie canzoni come avete fatto per LPU9?
rbourdon: Si, se possibile rilasceremo vecchie canzoni come abbiamo fatto per LPU9. Abbiamo scritto un sacco di musica e ci piacerebbe che le persone la ascoltassero un giorno. Forse LPU10...

Un sacco di belle notizie, insomma.



In attesa di avere una versione tradotta in italiano, vi proponiamo il log completo della chattata con Rob. Potete leggerlo cliccando sul link qui sotto:

bec says to rbourdon (16:14): do you find fansites creepy? ever googled yourself and found erotic fiction and gone eek! Or uber personal stuff and taken to hiding in a cupboard under the stairs?

Anstice says to  (16:14): Hey Rob! Stupid question, but which guy in Linkin Park snores the loudest? :P By the way, it was awesome getting to hang out with you in June during the SocialVibe meet and greet. I really enjoyed being one of the first people to hear New Divide live! =)

colinlpu says to  (16:15): Hi Rob! Would you ever consider experimenting with odd time signatures, and if it might be implemented in future albums to give them a more technical, progressive feel?

darknessovrme says to Anstice (16:15): im passing 3 at a time do not post your question more than 1 time

rbourdon says to  (16:15): bec: I don't find fansites creepy, we have amazing fans.  To be honest I don't spend a lot of time looking at anything about myself online, so it doesn't bother me.

darknessovrme says to  (16:16): dont post out of turn wait for your letter to come

allUK3473 says to  (16:16):  How is the new album coming? What is the sound? Much like LP's old stuff or something completely new?

rbourdon says to  (16:16): Anstice: Not sure who snores the loudest, I haven't slept close enough to the guys to determine that, and I don't plan to.

1rolphb says to rbourdon (16:16): what is the name of the new cd and when does it come out

cuzer says to  (16:17): Are you going to release more of older songs like you did for LPU9? Much love from Poland ({)

rbourdon says to  (16:17): New album is coming along great, we're exploring a lot of new terriory musically, and we're very excited for you guys to hear it.  It's hard to say exactly what it will sound like until we get a little further into the process.

adit says to  (16:17): Have you and the band ever considered using stage effects during concerts, for example, pyro?

Ayinka says to  (16:18): Hi Rob, its been awhile. I think we deserve alittle info on the new album. I just want to know if you have an album title set and a possible name for your first single. Also are you guys going have projekt revolution 2010? love Ayinka Williams

rbourdon says to  (16:18): Cuzer: Yes, if possible we'll release older songs like we will for LPU9.  We have a lot of music in the LP vault and we'd like for people to hear it someday.  Maybe LPU10...

darknessovrme says to Bobbette78 (16:19): make sure your asking 1 question

rbourdon says to  (16:19): We don't have a name for the new CD yet, and not sure when it will be out.  Hopefully sometime within the first half of next year.

ChUnKyMuNkY91 says to  (16:19): Hi Rob! if u were ever on Fear Factor what would have been ur biggest fear to overcome? Much love from ur biggest fan in Arkansas , Katy

ArielCahen says to  (16:19): What have you been lisitening to lately?

B_Rox2LP_90 says to  (16:20): Hi Rob! I've seen on Mike's blog that you guys have already "completed" 5 songs for the new album. Can you go into more detail about the style of the songs so far?

rbourdon says to  (16:20): colinlpu: We have experimented with different time signatures, we just haven't released anything that we thought was great...yet.

darknessovrme says to  (16:21): D, E and F post

rbourdon says to  (16:21): We have used different stage effects before including pyro, but on the last tour we decided to scale the live show back to focus more on the performance, and less on the production.

dereklp says to  (16:22): Hey Rob, I have more of a request than a question, but was just curious if maybe you and some of the other band members(not just Mike) could post on the forums more often, would really be cool! Thanks for your time man!

rbourdon says to  (16:22): B-Rox- We have 5 songs that are close to being finished.  THey are definitely unique and don't sound like anything we have done before.  It's hard to describe them, but you will hear them soon enough.

davidkyoku says to  (16:23): Hey Rob, what's up? Just remind you that here in Spain some guys are making an awesome magazine for spanish speakers from the whole world. Hope you take a look, I'm sure you guys we'll be proud. Have you ever heard about the crowd from Linkin Park Spain?

danielpsoad09 says to  (16:23): Hi Rob. This is Daniel from Chile! In which way will your drumming in the new album be different if you compare it with your previous work? i.e, are you using double pedals or more progressive rythms or anything else? Thanks

darknessovrme says to  (16:24): do not post out of turn folks

rbourdon says to  (16:24): dereklp: I will pass your message along to the other guys, but I don't know that I can get them to blog as much as mike.  He pretty much has us covered in keeping you guys up to date.

darknessovrme says to  (16:24): only D, E and F can post their 1 question 1 time

eng42ine says to  (16:24): Hey Rob, do you guys plan on ever releasing any older shows in a DSP format? Something like Mountain View 04 or something like that?

Fanlinkinpark02 says to  (16:25): hey Rob, would like to do a drum solo in a new song? or it's just for concert?

rbourdon says to  (16:25): danielpsoad09: I'm currently working on a couple songs that are making me feel like i'm trying to crack a code to find the right drum part that will complete the song.  The sounds are very unique and it's difficult to find a live drum part that compliments

darknessovrme says to  (16:26): G, H and I post

rbourdon says to  (16:26): the electronic sounds without taking away from what we've accomplished with those new sounds.

rbourdon says to  (16:27): It's a really fun challenge.  I think that my drumming is going to have to evolve to make this amazing.

darknessovrme says to  (16:27): just so you all know if its been asked im not passing it

ipek says to darknessovrme (16:27): What do you think about getting a Twitter account? -Greetings from Turkey :)

HybridLPFM says to rbourdon (16:27): Glad to chat with you from Spain, Rob!! :) Here's my question: will be possible to hear live again "P5hng me aw*y", the Reanimation's version of Pushing me Away? Love the Live in Texas performance. :) Thanks for your time!!!

hAs says to  (16:27): Hi Rob, thank you very much to be here. What do you think about the new Meet and greet ?

Hahninator says to darknessovrme (16:29): Do you think you could expand on the live DSP idea and possibly start selling older LP shows (2000-2006) online like other bands (Metallica, etc)?

rbourdon says to  (16:29): Yes, we're planning to release any of the older shows that we have recorded.  I'm not sure that we have recordings all the way back to 04, but we're going to release everything that we have available.

rbourdon says to  (16:29): It's in the works, and we're hoping it happens really soon.

Hahninator says to darknessovrme (16:29): Do you think you could expand on the live DSP idea and possibly start selling older LP shows (2000-2006) online like other bands (Metallica, etc)?

darknessovrme says to  (16:29): J and K post

darknessovrme says to  (16:30): and L

rbourdon says to  (16:30): ipek: I haven't tried twittering, and it's highly unlikely I will start.  But you can check out phoenix's twitter page.  Maybe I'll do some twittering via his account when I'm with him at the studio.

General_itals says to  (16:30): Hey Rob, im kinda hungry, hope ur not, but uh, are you guys planning on releasing any remix albums such as Reanimation or Collision course again?

darknessovrme says to  (16:30): remember folks post your question 1 time

LP_Chemist says to  (16:31): Is your work in the studio always as idylic and funny as it looks like on the video? Or do you sometimes squabble like a bunch of old witches? And if you do, who's the most vocal defender of his opinion?

rbourdon says to  (16:31): HybridLPFM: Yes it's possible that we might add Pushing Me Away Reanimation version back into the set, but it's really hard to tell at this point.   I'm glad you like the song and I'll keep that in mind.

jennifercoon says to  (16:31): Hi Rob. My question is if you could do a collaboration with anyone in the music business who would it be and why?

ladydeathseeker says to  (16:32): Hi Rob^^  Last year at Projekt Revolution I thought you guys put on an amazing show that was my 2nd time seeing you guys and I have to say to way better than I expected so my question is are you gonna have more awesome solos if you guys do decide to tour?

rbourdon says to  (16:32): hAs: I like the new m/g, it gives us a chance to hang out and meet our fans vs the old version of having a lot of people move through very quickly.

rbourdon says to  (16:33): No plans to release any remix albums right now, just focused on new music.  But, it's always possible it could happen in the future.

linkingabo says to  (16:33): Hey Rob! How do you feel now that "your song" the "Drum Song" is going to be released soon? ..btw is it much different from the album version? ...greetings from Slovakia ;))

kay86 says to  (16:34): Any idea or thoughts about the iPhone game you guys where involved? Should it be dropping soon?? Thanks!!

darknessovrme says to  (16:35): lets give him a minute to catch up

rbourdon says to  (16:35): LP_Chemist: Working in the studio together has always been a colaborative effort.  We tend to work in smaller groups, maybe 2-3 guys at a time.  We have found that to be easier than working with all 6 of us together, although all of us meet once a week to

rbourdon says to  (16:35): listen through and give feedback.  Toward the end of the process we spend a lot of time together perfecting all of the songs.

linkinparc says to  (16:36): rob, How much influence do you have on the lyrics? Have you ever written one line and if yes: which one? best, ana aka the  greatest phoenix fan

Linkink says to  (16:37): Do you guys plan to release any of the live song version (like Given Up extended outro) in studio version? ... Greetings from LPL

rbourdon says to  (16:37): I thought it was really fun to collaborate with the composers on Transformers 2.  I write film score material on my own for fun, and it was really cool to integrate our music into that score.

darknessovrme says to  (16:37): M, N, O and P post

rbourdon says to  (16:38): I'm glad that you enjoyed my drum solos.  I never actually planned on doing them, the other guys just forced me to.  And I kind of learned how to do a drum solo as I did them live, which definitely puts me under a lot of pressure.

rbourdon says to  (16:38): It's possible that there will be some more in the future, if the other guys force me to continue doing them.

Ms_Jessica says to  (16:39): are you guys doing a remix to a song by Kings of Leon?

nkramar says to  (16:39): Do you plan on celebrating the Hybrid Theory 10th anniversary in any special form? Maybe playing the whole CD live start to finish?

PinkyLouloulp says to  (16:40): Hey Rob! Ok so Mike said in an interview that you don't like being in the spotlight and that it was hard to convince you to play a drum solo. How did it feel the first time you did? Just to ease your mind, you rock. :)

rbourdon says to  (16:40): I'm excited to hear the original version of Drum Song aka Little things Give You Away.  I think you guys will find it interesting to see how a song evolves from the initial concept to the final recording.

darknessovrme says to  (16:40): dont post out of turn folks only M, N, O, and P are posting

oOJulezOo says to  (16:40): hey rob :) my question is...How do you choose which setlist you will play for the show? Do you have a system for that or do you just pick a setlist you all agree on for the show?

PartTimeThinker says to  (16:41):  Hey Rob, we've noticed a trend on WB drummers recently since you donned the long hair & the beard look a while back, The Used & A7X's drummers have recently played homage to your hair styling choices, did you give them styling tips?

rbourdon says to  (16:42): Mike and Chester write all of the lyrics, but the 4 of us definitely contribute by giving them our feedback.  According to Mike and Chester sometimes we have a little too much.  :)

darknessovrme says to  (16:42): Q, R, and S post

rbourdon says to  (16:42): nkramar: Yes we've talked about doing something special for the 10th anniversary of Hybrid Theory, but not sure what exactly we will do yet.  I can't believe it's been 10 years.

raaaaphy says to  (16:43): Are you guys ever going to play No Roads Left live? the whole LPU would appreciate that veeeery much! :)

rbourdon says to  (16:43): It was hard to convince me to play a drum solo- I refused- and they literally forced me to play it by not continuing to play the song until I did.  I actually felt good playing the solo, and I have started to enjoy them the more I do them.

Romance says to  (16:44): Hello Rob! You're always so friendly and placid. I wonder how you manage to stay so calm, given your world famous status? Thanx for great show and m&g in St.Petersburg this summer

Spike_Minoda_26 says to  (16:44): Hi Rob! Is the song "She couldn?t" about a specific person?

rbourdon says to  (16:45): oojulezoo: We have a few setlists, and we usually rotate them throughout the tour so that if fans want to come to more than one show that are fairly close together, they can see a different performance each night.  Also within those setlists, we leave room

rbourdon says to  (16:45): to change things up each night.

Smarky says to  (16:45): Hey Rob! Mike and Brad gave graduation speeches recently, from your expeiences that you have had, what would your advice be?

rbourdon says to  (16:46): No I didn't give anybody styling tips, but somebody in my band has been asking me for styling tips!

darknessovrme says to  (16:46): T,U,V and W post

rbourdon says to  (16:47): raaphy: Not sure if we will play No Roads Left live, we did try it out and didn't love the way it came accross live.

darknessovrme says to  (16:49): please do not post more than 1 question and dont post it more than once

darknessovrme says to  (16:49): and lets give him a few minutes to answer

rbourdon says to  (16:50): If I had to give any advice to musicians, the most imporant thing I could tell them is to spend a lot of time praciticing and listening to as much music as possible.  There's no substitute for hard work and practicing consistently.

rbourdon says to  (16:51): I tried to find an easier road, and still haven't found one.  Let me know if anyone figures it out.

rbourdon says to  (16:51): A couple more questions, and then I have to run...

williamlp says to  (16:51): Hey rob from greece! i wanted to know. will you be playing any other instruments in the new album like brad did on hands held high? By the way in four days its my birthday so chating with you feels like a great early gift.thanx

Tinnituss says to  (16:52): Hiiyaa. Last time when Mike was in the chat he mentioned the idea of making a dvd out of all the lptv eps. but said why buy it when you could watch it for free? I think that's an awesome idea and would like you to make one. How do you feel about that?

rbourdon says to  (16:52): williamlp: Happy Birthday (in 4 days).  If I play any other instrument, it would probably be the piano since that's the only other one I know how to play.

SergSlim says to _Mark_ (16:53): Hey Rob, do you remember if you ever performed these songs live - Carousel, And One (Full, not shortened), High Voltage (Original, HTEP, not the remix from OSC single), Part Of Me, or even maybe a Technique from HTEP?

rbourdon says to  (16:54): I do remember performing Carousel, And One, High Voltage and Part of Me.  I think we were called XERO when we called Carousel and Part of Me, and it was probably in a small club in LA or Arizona.

darknessovrme says to  (16:55): time for more or is that it?

rbourdon says to  (16:55): Thank you guys, it was fun chatting with you.  Thank you for your continued support and feedback on the music we make. I'm excited for you to hear the new album, I hope that you love it as much as we love working on it.  Catch up with you soon, hope

rbourdon says to  (16:55): to meet you guys at a show.{/moshide}


Veniamo anche a sapere che Mike sarà presente per un'altra chat il 9 di dicembre, probabilmente per conoscere i pareri degli iscritti sul CD di LPU9!
