Monday's be like

To some, the passion to create never really ends. If you've been around for a while, the expectation from those that supported you are more demanding than ever. There's this sense of ownership from your fanbase thats both loyal and cut throat. But what happens if you want to create something new and different because of curiosity or cuz it just feels good? A few weeks ago I was at the friends and fam release of #linkinpark new album #OneMoreLight. @chesterbe was half way jokingly comparing their evolution of music to food. "What's wrong with eating Mexican one night to Chinese another?!." Later I was chatting with @m_shinoda and compared this same expectation for us to being in biz for 25 years. The odds are against us for sure but then again you've sold over 75 million records, been together as a band for over 20 years, have two Grammys, blah blah and of course your grateful for everything and everyone but it's dope to evolve and still be hungry-To evolve into something new and although everyone won't feel the same way, that's completely ok. My point here is that all the classics and shit you've grown to love was at one point in time, "new." It's a fun time to be alive and be able to create some new classics today. Congrats fellas! Everyone make sure you check out #OneMoreLight now 🌅 here lprk.co/onemorelight @musicforrelief @linkinpark

Final Inspection day at one of our longstanding factories. It never ceases to amaze me how much time, effort and the coordination of hundreds of people across multiple language barriers it takes to wrap up a final technical product. Stoked our squad is on point ☝️

Soundgarden, Audioslave, Temple of the Dog. So much of my childhood was wrapped around his and his bandmates music. Rest in Power #chriscornell

Back in the day I use to skate at Beryl Banks in Redondo Beach. On the weekends "this dude" with short shorts, white headband and spiked blond hair rolls up in his truck and drops off his launch ramp to skate. We did this at the old Liquor Barn in Hermosa and at Gardena Banks-all the South Bay OG skate spots. "This dude" is @perwelinder , you know the original member of the world famous #bonesbrigade, founder of blitz, #birdhouseskateboards with Tony Hawk, #hookupsskateboards with Jeremy Klein, #jslv and a bunch of other iconic brands. I've known Per for a while, both from a fan when I was a grom to a business guy and entrepreneur. Either way, Per's a stand up, honest, hardworking, super positive guy and I'm stoked on your next journey! Ps. I still don't get it how all the icons in freestyle took this path-Rocco, Harris, Pierre, Rodney, you...

Coming soon
