    I saw the performance on youtube, And It was a hell of a show!!, Chester is freakin awesome, Btw, Mike, I really loved your song No Roads Left, I was just wondering, Why didnt the song made it to the album? You have a great voice. I am a music writer as you are though, You are my greatest influence in music and art. I am now planning to set up a Protools studio couz im hitting the limit of my recent DAW. But I need your advices on what to buy, I only have 200 bucks and I still havent received it yet from my buyer, and i just turned 18, I hope to hear from you mike,! your great!

  2. nillp on December 16, 2008 at 2:06 pm

    i had the oportunity to hear some of those songs these days and i must admit that they were more than AMAZING!

    and for sure chester was unreal (as usual–that’s OUR boy!) ha! πŸ˜€

    MayLP: Mike,why wont you try to sing a rock song on the new album??

    Why wasn’t I there?

  5. Girl_X on December 13, 2008 at 1:47 am

    I hate Chester and his Playmate!

  6. ritzifying on December 11, 2008 at 10:09 pm

    aw, I feel bad that all their careers are over and they’ve resorted to joining together to be a cover band. :p jk

    Lucky bastards that got to be there. How big (or small) was the crowd anyway?

  7. CuteWhiteBunny on December 11, 2008 at 7:28 pm

  8. NoMoreSorrowGirl on December 11, 2008 at 3:02 pm

  9. MayLP on December 11, 2008 at 2:55 pm

    I like to see it…I like to see Chester with good companies….I dont mean that LP members are not good companies…[Would you like to go to see a movie or something?? I would love your company…HAHAHA]
    Mike,why wont you try to sing a rock song on the new album?? I mean I liked In between…but you can sing more than that….PLEASE…Answer me….please!

    Oh….when you’re coming to Brazil?? I’M WAITING SINCE 2004…. Γ‡.Γ‡ you’re bad with your brazillians fans…you travel around the world to show the world your cds….but you never come to Brazil [South America]….why you do this to us?? Are the Japanese, North-American, European fans better than us???


  10. tpbarbosa on December 11, 2008 at 9:47 am

    I’ll try to find these videos right now! Chester looks absolutely amazing on these photos.. I’ll just kill him for have choosen Womanizer on his playlist on MTVHits.. hahaha! just joking..

  11. SK_2008_LV on December 11, 2008 at 6:16 am

    Cool videos! Chester rocks! I’m really glad to see him performing on stage again πŸ™‚
    LOL about “That’s my boy!” (c)

  12. Chazyana on December 11, 2008 at 4:26 am

    Hello Mike, can you answer me why today I felt like I have to enter to your blog to see Chester?? I don’t know, but I enter at your blog and…wow, look! News about Chester…

    I’m a bit scared about my intuition about Chaz…

    Well, hehehe I enter to greet you too! You’re fantastic! Don’t change! I’m looking forward for the new LP cd!

  13. Jen1983 on December 11, 2008 at 3:44 am

    Woah. That’s quite a list of people to be playing with. But please Mike, can you tell Chester to hurry up and release his DBS album? Myself and at least four friends are getting quite impatient now, haha.

  14. Shinodabestfriend on December 11, 2008 at 2:55 am

    He’s really so talented… omg… cute… Chester is a puppy… YOU ROCK BABY!!! we love youuu!!!! (Mike you’re sweet.. you made me giggle at “that’s my boy” so cutey… ^^) kisses to uuu!! πŸ˜€

  15. rocksylvie on December 11, 2008 at 2:08 am

    Yeaaaah! Chester rocks!

  16. pepper on December 10, 2008 at 8:59 pm

    look at chazzy chaz πŸ˜€
    Thanks for the update, ill be youtubin it all day tomorrow! (and not studyin for finals XD)

  17. Hawaii_LP_fan on December 10, 2008 at 8:42 pm

    Mr. Chester back in his element! YAY! And why not perform alongside a handful of legends? Mr. Chester has the meanest vocals…ever. His voice is “beautiful music” to our ears! It’s never off pitch. He hits those notes like nobody’s beeswax. I bet the energy in that place bypassed the two earthquakes that shook Southern Cal just the other day. Thanks for sharing those awesome pics Mr. Mike!

  18. numbrocker02 on December 10, 2008 at 7:41 pm

    Nice update about Chester. Good to see him performing again. I love the pictures. I saw a youtube vid and Chester was amazing!!! Chester was unreal (as usual–that’s my boy!). lol he’s OUR boy too, Mike. But really all you guys are. Love ya!

  19. Ezza on December 10, 2008 at 6:56 pm

    wooot! Chris Cheney is awesome! so’s chester…but i think that the living end are australia’s only good rock band andChris Cheney one of our only good main streem guitarists and i so wish i was there!!!! unfairness reins supreem in my life at the min

  20. ThePrincess on December 10, 2008 at 6:52 pm

    YAAAAY OUR HOT DADDY IS BACK….MR BENNINGTON must be feeling better enough to perform again….awesome ( usual–that’s our boy too.. baby!)

  21. FCastro on December 10, 2008 at 5:51 pm

    Hey, there’s lots of time I didn’t see Chaz singing like this. I hope see him singing this way next year on LP shows too. Thanks Mike for post it and I’d like to use this opportunity to ask you Mike about the next album: how far is? can you answer that question for us? I’m glad if you can. Hugs, “F”

  22. lynndarwinharris on December 10, 2008 at 5:06 pm

    Looks like an awesome night! Great Line-up of musicians!! Wish I could have been in that crowd! Thank you for sharing this! I will look the clips up. Have a good night!

  23. MS_Ineedyou on December 10, 2008 at 4:58 pm

    I love Paradise City !!!!! “Take me down to the paradise city, where the grass is green and the girls are pretty”

    I love that song πŸ™‚ I like Rebel Yell too πŸ™‚ “In the midnight hour she cried- “more, more, more” πŸ™‚ I don’t know

    Whole Lotta Love, all i know is that it’s by Led Zepplin xDD !!! I wish i would’ve been there !!!!

    —Brooke .

  24. ShadowerLiltani on December 10, 2008 at 3:52 pm

    Yay! Chester must be feeling better enough to perform again. Chester is coolest when Chester gets to be Chester. Thanks for the piccies πŸ˜€ Love the “that’s my boy!” statement. See, people, Mike’s not having a baby, he’s got his very own Chester to take care of. Seriously though, the people who have been asking got me in on it too. We want answers. Baby or no baby?

  25. cynthia on December 10, 2008 at 3:26 pm

    there’s definitely some awesome youtube videos of this up already! this would be so amazing to see in person, just seeing all of these guys on one stage would be worth the price of admission. added to my list of things i will eventually do in life..

  26. Vixenla on December 10, 2008 at 3:15 pm

    It’s always great to see Chester in his RockNRoll world! Can’t wait to see the videos!

  27. Wello on December 10, 2008 at 3:14 pm

    Chris Cheney was there!? That’s awesome!! :DD (I ❀ The Living End :3 You should have them come on a PR with you guys! -crosses fingers-) I'm so glad Chester was rocking! πŸ™‚ Is his backbend in the last picture a sign that his back is healing up well? πŸ˜€

  28. analoggirl on December 10, 2008 at 3:14 pm

    “I’m gonna give you my love…” What an amazing performance. “Whole Lotta Love” has to be my favourite Camp Freddy cover, as Chester matches the intensity (and sexuality) of a young Robert Plant. πŸ˜‰ I only wish I could see the videos of Chester performing with The Doors.
    Mike, you’re our boy too! I loved your collaborations with Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes, Common and Black Thought. If you could make a hip hop version of Camp Freddy, who would you perform with?

  29. RMD369 on December 10, 2008 at 3:09 pm

    Mike, thanks for the great news and pics about Chester with Camp Freddy! This totally made my day to see Chester in his pure Rock’n’roll mode. Love it, he’s da man, yeah baby! So were you in a special VIP section or in the pit? Hope you had a great time and if you have one how about posting a pic of you at the event. I really love all the support you guys give to each other. Just one of the many reasons that LP OWNS my musical world!

  30. cuz on December 10, 2008 at 2:40 pm

    I love the friendship in LP. “That’s my boy!” was so nice and made me smile πŸ™‚

    I just watched some videos and Chester was abolutely amazing! Seems like a great time. Thanks for the photos and letting us know!

  31. Madlen on December 10, 2008 at 2:25 pm

    Chester is just amazing…I found a lot of videos:DSeems like a great night…:D

  32. MarishkaLP on December 10, 2008 at 2:09 pm

    You guys are great musicians and i’m not surprised seeing you (or just Chester) on the same stage with the legendary musicians ’cause you’re the same “THE BEST” as they are!You’ve come SO far, Linkin Park, just with the help of your talent! (“i tried so hard and got so far” πŸ™‚ ) so many bands dream to do the music that will remind of LP’s sound at least for a bit! great success! thanx for the pics and information ab this performance! i saw videos on youtube, Chester’s awesome! the voice’s amazing! i always wondered how he can sing with the same strong power in his voice EVERY evening! there’s no explanation except – TALENT! πŸ™‚

  33. bec on December 10, 2008 at 1:33 pm

    I think you need to ask Cheryl for advice on how to take good performance photographs…yours are quite blurry

  34. cybergirl on December 10, 2008 at 1:23 pm


  35. noidea on December 10, 2008 at 12:46 pm

    “as usual–that’s my boy!” lol It sounds like you are a really proud father.
    Thanks for sharing all the pictures. It’s nice to see him back on stage again.
    What it feels to be in the crowd seeing your band mate singing on stage?
    It seems like you have a nice night.

  36. rockermeg on December 10, 2008 at 12:38 pm

    Woow!! I’ve seen some clips, Chester slayed that show!!!
    Dave Navarro?? He’s such a legend,,just like Chester!

  37. durg on December 10, 2008 at 12:31 pm

    wow, nice πŸ˜€
    & chester looks so much younger in that 3rd picture for some reason, like hybrid-theory-time.. O.o maybe its just me. :p
    & aww.. ‘thats my boy!’ made me smile. πŸ˜€ XD

  38. Noda89 on December 10, 2008 at 12:10 pm

    Just watched a couple of clips off of Veoh (kinda of like YouTube), but they were pulled, so I went back to YouTube. I wish I was there to see that live, Chester’s voice was amazing XD

  39. Kalini on December 10, 2008 at 11:17 am

    It must’ve been a KILLER performance! I saw “Whole Lotta Love” in youtube, but I couldn’t find “Rebel Yell”, yet. I love Billy Idol’s songs. I’ve never seen LP live, but watching “Road To Revolution”, saw that Chester has an amazing voice and great singing skills. He did his best!!! By the way, I should guess that you’d save the best for last. I loved Petrified/ POA. Have you ever thought about Believe Me/ Numb? Well, you’ve had a great night at the show! Thanx for the photos! It’s great to see Chester feeling fine and back on the stage, singing his favorite songs! KK

  40. NeneLP88 on December 10, 2008 at 11:13 am

    “Chester was unreal (as usual–that’s my boy!).” that made me quite laugh! haha

    But i have to correct you, my friend.. Chester’s OUR boy! πŸ˜‰

    Don’t worry, you’re our boy too! πŸ˜€

  41. Doggie24690 on December 10, 2008 at 11:04 am

    Wow, that’s freakin’ intense line-up of artists. I can’t wait to see some videos! πŸ™‚

  42. zimminator on December 10, 2008 at 11:04 am

    see this is why i want to live in california, so i can go see amazing events like this. less than a year now and hopefully ill be out there! but im really pissed i wasnt able to see this live. amazing singers that were there.

  43. skindesbous on December 10, 2008 at 10:56 am

    WOW! I look forward to watch it :D!

  44. Ewelina16 on December 10, 2008 at 10:46 am

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! Chester is amazing!!!! So full of life and real, that’s why I always love his energetic performances πŸ™‚

  45. aaashley on December 10, 2008 at 10:21 am

    wow, that’s quite the line up.
    i bet chester fit right in! : )

  46. Gazza92LP on December 10, 2008 at 9:59 am

    Chester&Slash!!! Oh Yeah!!! Thanks for the pics!

  47. PankakeMunky on December 10, 2008 at 9:38 am

    that’s awesome. i wish i was there to watch this awesome lineup. thanks for the pics. mike, you might consider being apart of chester’s groupie and record every waking moment of camp freddy since you have pics. πŸ™‚

  48. Dori on December 10, 2008 at 9:12 am

    Thanks for the pics. Never really heard these guys before. All I know is this was one of Scott Weiland’s old bands, which makes them fucking awesome, in my book! Would’ve been INCREDIBLE to see both Chester and Scott up there together, since both of them, are AMAZING musicians! Glad you had a great night out on the town!

  49. samira on December 10, 2008 at 9:12 am

    chester, no thank you ! not for me.

  50. WolfRaptor on December 10, 2008 at 9:09 am

    I am always amazed at how the hell Chester can keep his voice at the level he does for all these years. I lose my voice entirely after screaming for only a few seconds!

  51. Jaclyn on December 10, 2008 at 8:48 am

    Killing news! I wish I were next to you in the pit to support Chestah!!!! Yes Mike, you’ve got the best singing boyfriend in the universe ;)) Great to hear that Chaz is not only alive and kicking but UNREAL (hope, your next album can be described like this :D)

  52. murry on December 10, 2008 at 8:26 am

    I’ve seen clips from previous shows and they do kick a whole lotta ass. I would love to catch a Camp Freddy performance live one day. It’s like a dangerously awesome amalgam of talent. Now they just need you on piano to do “November Rain” or something crazy.

  53. JoeyDC on December 10, 2008 at 8:22 am

    Looks like the guys had a lot of fun together on stage :). To get together with other musicians is always medicine for the soul! Wish I could have been there…I’ll make sure to check out YouTube though. Greetings from Boston.

  54. jagodka on December 10, 2008 at 8:11 am

    awesome performance! πŸ™‚
    [ always make me laugh πŸ™‚ ]
    kisses from Poland!

  55. WTF on December 10, 2008 at 8:06 am

    When isn’t he amazing? Chester is like..god.

  56. Kay_V1988 on December 10, 2008 at 8:00 am

    Kisses from Portugal. πŸ˜‰ *

  65. Lynnie on December 10, 2008 at 6:36 am

    ‘that’s my boy’ – Lol… what are you, his father? That bit made me laugh. Sorry.
    Dave Navarro is cool, as is Slash… but of course, Chester is without doubt a top man.
    And somehow that reminds me… I need to check the latest on Chi Cheng… ~Wanders off~

  66. nikkiann0100 on December 10, 2008 at 6:28 am

    Wow, Chester is so amazing. I wish I could have gone to that. It looks like it was fun. Thanks for posting those pics.

  67. LinkinTwins on December 10, 2008 at 5:48 am

    woww!!! Amazing pics, Mike!!! :)) Thanks for sharing!! Chester looks sooo nice!!!! :)) I like those songs, and I wait for clips on youtube!!!!! :)))

  69. YuN_RoCks on December 10, 2008 at 5:03 am

  70. zahra on December 10, 2008 at 4:38 am

    it must have been a killer (as u said so) wow the pictures have alot of energy ……have a great day mike…bye

  71. Janine1978 on December 10, 2008 at 4:28 am

    Thank you Mike for this pics. Nice to see Chester on stage again!

  72. NicD on December 10, 2008 at 3:51 am

    Looking good! Curious about those Youtube movies!


  73. NoFace on December 10, 2008 at 3:27 am

    Your boy looks good, but your pictures are a little shaky tho. Too busy rocking your body to the sound, eh? Noticed that Scott is not around this time, but Chester seems to be cool with the other guys in Velvet Revolver. Good stuff, can’t wait for some footage tomorrow πŸ™‚

  74. ms_shock on December 10, 2008 at 3:20 am

    (as usual–that’s my boy!) LMAO!!! That killed me! hahahaha not only you proud of him like this! hahahahahahahaa

  75. LPfeather on December 10, 2008 at 3:17 am

    oh you were in the audience watching Chester. That must be weird to see him singing when you aren’t on stage, HA.
    And he’s your boy, yeah no doubt πŸ˜‰

  76. keineAhnung on December 10, 2008 at 3:07 am

    awwwww, I would LOVE to be at a camp freddy show!!! but as I live in europe I guess this will never happen…btw, I like the last picture, because it almost looks like the one I took at rock am ring 2007 (would be awesome to see you there again next year…’crosses fingers and prays’)…ROFL

  77. sassi_lp on December 10, 2008 at 2:56 am

    Chester was rocking the house once again huh!?
    Glad to see that he’s back onstage after that nasty injury, and that was ONE HELL of a line up.
    I hope you and your fellow bandmembers realize how damn blessed you are having Chester as your vocalist.
    Singer is an understatement for Chesters vocal abilities. He is a truly talented and hard working vocalist and I feel blessed that I had the chance to experience him and you guys live in Berlin. We love you here:) c heers up there in Cali!

  78. SimplyMode on December 10, 2008 at 2:52 am

    Damn. So much talent on one stage, must have been one hell of a performance. Anything with Chester is always something worth watching. I’ll go check for it now. Thanks Mike. (:

  79. lucky_cat on December 10, 2008 at 2:37 am

    OMG, what a crew!!! I wish I could have been there. Nice to see Chester on stage again! Thank you.

  80. Hybr1d_7h3ory on December 10, 2008 at 2:26 am

    I would have to agree with MurphyLP, Chester is probably one of the best singers of our age. I’ve seen videos of Camp Freddy in the past and Chester kills it every time. How does it feel to be in the crowd as opposed to on stage?

    I was also wondering if you were aware of the many Shinodaisms on To name a few : Shinogasm, Shinodsist

    Superb pictures by the way…Hybr1d_7h3ory

  81. I_B_Long on December 10, 2008 at 2:24 am

    oh wow that looks awesome. im so jealous! i would love to see most of these guys play. and i agree with the previous poster, Chester is one of the greatest singers of our generation. i bet he could make a dido song sound heavy and awesome…lol gaahh im so jealous. i wish i could have been there. well, im off to youtube then….:)

  82. murphyLP on December 10, 2008 at 2:19 am

    Yeaaah thatΒ΄s OUR boy! Lol
    As you said in the MTM DVD… is not because iΒ΄m a fan of LP but Chester is by far one of the best singers of our generation!
    He can sing everything…and most times better than the original!

    I think itΒ΄s time to you Mike invite some rappers like Jay Z, Eminem, Dr Dre and make shows like this. HAHA
    Great idea han?!

    Thanks for posting man!!!
    Regards from BRAZIL

  83. MentalisFun on December 10, 2008 at 2:17 am

    Holy crap thats wicked! Will def be checking out for those clips πŸ˜€

  84. Carla on December 10, 2008 at 2:04 am


    That’s one heck of a lineup. Must have been an amazing performance! I would love to see a clip of “Whole Lotta Love”! I love that song! (Speaking of which I just remembered having a dream involving Led Zeppelin…weird. o_O)

  85. lp_fm_fan on December 10, 2008 at 1:48 am

    WOW! I never heard about this, but really when do I hear about The Roxy performances? (actually I did hear about some on the LPU but last year, I think.) Oh how I wish I was over there in LA to be more informed and to have a chance to see them live! Boo. I want to see them live! And no, not YouTube live. But in person! Great pics btw. πŸ™‚
