Mike Shinoda finds it "too hard" to play certain Linkin Park songs in the wake of Chester Bennington's death.

The 41-year-old musician was devastated when his band mate and friend took his own life last year, and has said Linkin Park songs such as 'Breaking The Habit' are now too painful for him to perform without his pal by his side providing half of the vocals.

Mike said: "We didn't play 'Breaking the Habit' at the tribute show because topically, that's just way too hard. For me, on the solo shows, there's probably a few songs I could play myself but I don't want to at this point, I don't want to do it.

And it isn't just the Linkin Park songs that Mike struggles with, as he even says he finds it hard to perform some of the meaningful tracks from his solo record.
