Wish I were.. October 3, 2006

Posted by Karan in Personal.

Chester Bennington: Good luck to everyone of you guys man. We were on the other side of the barricade a few years ago, man. Coming to these shows, seeing our favorite bands and having the dreams. Just persevere, believe in yourself. One day you’ll be up here with us. Or Metallica or Limp Bizkit, Deftones, Mudvayne


(Audience jeers and cheers!)


2003, Texas. The Live Linkin Park concert. An unbelievable and electrifying atmosphere. Over 200000 people jumping up and down, head banging and pitting to the beats of Crawling. Chester, Shinoda and the others being looked upto ( both literally, and figuratively ) with Chester’s energy blowing one’s mind away. His enthusiasm was infectious, his stage presence, awe-inspiring. For me, it was an amazing experience.


Maybe, because this was the for the first time, that I was seeing a concert (so what if just on my laptop). Maybe, because I am a hard-core fan of LP, and Chester. Maybe, because I am nascent to the world of rock.


It’s now that I understand the term, ‘rock star status’. For most teenagers and youngsters across America and the world, the top rock stars enjoy a God-like status. Respect, money, power… they have it all. What else could they have asked from a career? It makes me wish, that I were a rock star 😀 . For popularity is something that I really cherish. And rock stars are not just popular, they are iconic.




Do watch the LP live in Texas video, if you haven’t as yet.

And yeah, do suggest more such concerts to me.

Wish one of these top rock bands visit India, that would set the atmosphere on fire.

Thank you Aditya, for introducing me to rock!
