Linkin Park had a big night at the American Music Awards. Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson and Rob Bourdon were there to receive the band’s award for “Favorite Alternative Rock Artist”. (via Rockfeed)
While accepting the award, Mike Shinoda gave a heartwarming speech honoring his late bandmate Chester Bennington.
“First of all, thank you so much to all the fans here and around the world who voted for the band, who have supported the band through thick and thin”, Shinoda said.
“I got a chance to talk to those guys … who said really wonderful things about Chester. And they were similar to the things that our fans said all around the world about him, and we want to dedicate this award to him, to his memory, to his talent, to his sense of humor, to his joy.”
He added: “Remember, you guys — all of you, tonight — whether you’re a fan or an artist, I want you guys to take a moment to appreciate what you’ve got and make Chester proud. Thank you guys so much.”
Behind the scenes, it appears that the Linkin Park members had some difficulties with their credentials. Mike Shinoda shared humorous videos of the band dodging security after it appears that they did not have the proper passes for the red carpet.
Later, Shinoda shared a photo of a temporary pass, though that apparently wasn’t enough to keep them in the show. After winning their award, Mike Shinoda shared a clip of him talking to security and an LAPD officer about being allowed in the show. Ultimately, the members weren’t allowed back inside — but as always, Mike Shinoda and the rest of the band took it all in stride and didn’t let the mix-up ruin their night.
