Geki Posted December 13, 2012 Share Posted December 13, 2012 I was thinking about this earlier, is Chester really a part of the band? On the making of Meteora it was revealed that he doesn't do much until it comes time to record the album, then he records his vocals over the songs. So basically the songs are already made and then he just sings the lyrics and melodies that Mike and the rest of the band comes up with? If you watch the making of MTM, he isn't really shown until it comes time to record the album at NRG. I know that Mike writes about 90% of the lyrics for Linkin Park, but does he help at all? Every time a ''demo'' is released by Linkin Park it almost always is either an instrumental or the vocals do not feature much of Chester at all. Is that because he isn't around when the album is being created? Obviously he does the tours with the band but it seems he always forgets songs that they aren't currently performing live at the time. I'm starting to think that Mike is really the entire backbone of Linkin Park, and that he creates all the music and pretty much writes all the songs (instrumentation, lyrics, melodies, etc) and just has the rest of the band play them and sing them at the very end of the process.
