Chester Bennington of Linkin Park Looks Back on "Meteora"ARTISTdirect.com interviewed Chester about Linkin Park's second album Meteora and how it was a milestone for the band. Read it here!
I think Meteora was a really good step for us in terms of our ability to write the kinds of songs we were going to be capable of writing. I look at Hybrid Theory and Meteora in a really strange way. We knew what we wanted, and we knew how to execute to a certain degree. However, we were also just going for it. We didn't really care about what anybody else was doing. We also didn't care whether or not the songs fit together stylistically as a whole or a collection of songs.
