    Well, I'll be damned...I did some research and it turns out that's Mike and Mark Wakefield. It does sound like Mike, but I was in a denial that Mike would make such a random song with Mark...

    Back in 2008 or 2009 I think. I'm sure it was between MTM and ATS

    Kinda off topic, but it's amazing how Mike's guitar solo on that song blows anything Brad's ever done out of the water.

    Well Mike is a multi instrumentalist. Guitars, piano, drums, strings.. all the shit.

    I just listened to some tracks, he's not half as good as Chester.

    No, without Chester Linkin Park wouldn't be anywhere near where they are. Chester is an incredibly gifted vocalist.

    It makes me laugh when I hear that he struggled to get in the band, because he's just so damn good, and I don't see why they haven't jumped in front of him and kissed his ass when he auditioned for the singer :)

    I don't think he really struggled. I think he was instantly favored and it seems they thought it was a little too good to be true or something and didn't want to make quick rash decisions, so they auditioned a couple others and were like, "What are we doing?"

    I think I heard that when Chester auditioned some other vocalist basically walked out saying, "You guys are crazy if you don't pick him."

    I also saw an interview where Mike told that story about how they found Chester.

    Back on topic, I don't really think Mike can hold an entire album singing. Still want new Fort Minor, tho.

    Yes, I fully support your opinion. Mike's voice is in Living Things better than in the other album but still not so good as compared to Chester.
