Do you, guys, think Linkin Park are particularly good at their instruments? If you ask a random music fan about LP, he will most likely know about Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington, while it's highly unlikely that he knows any of the rest. And even though frontmen usually get most of the credit, many bands have popular non-vocalists, as well. It's not a big surprise - we rarely see the guys playing anything challenging on their instruments, after all. But is it because of LP's music not letting them shine, or do they actually lack the skills? I'm mainly referring to Brad, Dave and Rob here. In my opinion, Rob is doing a very good job behind the drums. Not that most of Linkin Park's stuff is anything demanding, but he's a nice drummer, doing some interesting things from time to time. Dave has done some incredible work with Tasty Snax back in the day, but LP's bass lines, with few exceptions, put me to sleep. I'm not even sure he can play the bass like that after all these years, but who knows? The biggest mystery out of the three for me, though, is Brad. He's definitely a good composer - we know he writes a lot of stuff for LP and the band has some very interesting, yet simple, guitar lines. On the other hand, he has never played anything difficult on that guitar. Yeah, he had some good rhythms during the years, but even his most complex solos aren't anything a 15-year old guitarist can't play. So, we know our guys are good composers, but do you think they are good at their instruments, too? I'm interested in seeing your opinions.
