Did Chester join LP in 1998 or 1999? He was introduced to the band on his birthday via phone call in 1999, right? But he somehow recorded demos with them (Slip, Blue, So Far Away) in 1998. How could he have recorded songs with the band before he even auditioned for them? Either I don't understand the story of the band or the story is contradictory. I don't mean to sound like an idiot, but I don't see how there can be 1998 demos with Chester's vocals when he wasn't even introduced to the band until 1999, unless those demos were just written in 1998 and he recorded his vocals over them after he joined in 1999.
