Linkin Park by Anne Erickson

If you're at all worried that Linkin Park might do a tour with a Chester Bennington hologram, you can rest easy. Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda says he's heard some chatter about the subject, but he's not having it.

When asked about the hologram possibility in an Instragram Live video, which was later posted to YouTube, Shinoda explained that he "can't even wrap my head around the idea of a holographic Chester."

"I've actually heard other people outside the band suggest that, and there's absolutely no way," Shinoda said.

Later in the video, he reiterated, "I can't do a hologram Chester you guys, that would be the worst. For any of you guys who have lost a loved one, best friend, family member, can you imagine having a hologram of them? Ugh. (It would be) awful. I can't do it."

A few late musicians have gotten the hologram treatment, including Ronnie James Dio and Michael Jackson.

So, what's on tap for the members of Linkin Park in the future? Shinoda says they aren't sure yet. They recently released a live album called One More Light Live, which was filmed on what ended up being Bennington's final tour with the band before he passed away on July 20.
