It's been a heavy year for Mike Shinoda.

The Linkin Park vocalist sat down with Rolling Stone to discuss his first ever solo-album Post-Traumatic, in which he details the struggles he's gone through since his bandmate Chester Bennington died by suicide last July.

Shinoda added that the singer, who battled depression and other mental health issues, could be "really hot and cold on stuff," explaining:
