i voted for no.1. but sadly i dont think it very likely. chester's been getting sick and the last was serious enough to be put in the hospital. and with all that screaming he does he's bound to lose his chords sometime. and when he does like the above stated, they have too much respect for him to just replace him. he was the final piece of the puzzle to complete Linkin Park and without him it just wouldn't be the same in my opinion. oh but i do think they'll be around for a least another 5 years. but as huge an LP fan i am, i realize that only their music can last forever.
