Josh Franceschi: How Hybrid Theory Saved My Life
You Me Six frontman Josh Franceschi has spoken to Kerrang! about his love for Linkin Park’s debut album Hybrid Theory.
As a teenager at secondary school, finding his way into music through the likes of Eminem’s seminal Slim Shady LP, Josh discovered Linkin Park through a friend’s Walkman and there was no going back from there.
Josh goes on to discuss hearing Crawling and One Step Closer for the first time, how it made him feel, and how that inherent aggression fed into some of You Me At Six’s heavier moments. He also reflects on why there will never be another singer like Chester Bennington.
You Me Six’s latest album VI is out now.
