The last few years have been rough for music fans… Scott Weiland, David Bowie, Prince and in 2017 alone, Chuck Berry… Gregg Allman… Chris Cornell — and now Chester.
We have a new Ongoing History show about Linkin Park that is on the schedule for the fall… but in light of recent events, we’ve pulled out an older show dating to 2008… this tells the story of Chester and Linkin Park to that point…
Did you know that their song, Bleed It Out was re-written 838,458,503 times, according to the making-of DVD? Since the band’s debut album, Hybrid Theory came out October 24th, 2000, Linkin Park has sold between 30 and 35 million records world-wide – the only band to come close to this level of success is Nickelback.
Linkin Park is arguably the only band to come out of the whole nu-metal phase of the late 90’s, bigger and stronger. To think: it all started with a couple of guys at Agoura High School in California.
