Statement

In a statement on his Facebook, Don Diablo told the audience he's always been a big fan of Linkin Park: 
'For those asking, this version of Linkin Park's "Numb" is a special tribute I made for Chester when I found out about his passing. I grew up buying all the Linkin Park albums and they have been a huge part of my childhood. Their songs have pulled me through dark times and brought me light throughout the years. As an artist myself I can say that this life is an absolute privilege, but it also comes with a lot of weight. And things are not always as they seem. 

Many of you out there are struggling right now, I can feel this every single day, and to those seeking for answers, love or light I am truly honoured to know that my music is bringing you something to hold on to. Knowing this makes me get up in the morning. Every single day. You are my family, you are my light. We are in this together. Always'
