Linkin Park's Chester Bennington Suffers Stupid Injuries

(Gibson) Although Linkin Park are set to begin their first North American tour on Thursday (January 20) in Sunrise, Florida, lead singer Chester Bennington says he's not as prepared for this trek as others in the past. The frontman says that he's been hindered by some "stupid" injuries.

"I tore a ligament in my left hand last year, playing basketball at Chuck E. Cheese, which is like a pizza place for kids," he said. "I injured my back a few years ago, that's been acting up. The last show in Australia, I bent over to pack my bags and I tore a little bit of my back again."

But the Linkin Park singer said his ailments won't stop him from putting on a show. "That's not gonna prevent me from going out and shredding on this tour," he said. "I'm gonna go out and it's gonna be like nothing happened."
