Linkin Park  -  July 5, 2003 - Summer Sanitarium After Party

> George: YO! YO! IT'S THE SUMMER SANITARIUM AFTER PARTY. IT'S MuchMusic, MuchLoud. HERE WE ARE HANGING OUTSIDE THE WORLD HEADQUARTERS FOR MuchMusic. RIGHT ABOUT NOW, METALLICA ARE ONSTAGE, PLAYING THE SUMMER SANITARIUM TOUR AT THE SKYDOME, JUST DOWN THE ROAD FROM WHERE WE ARE, AND THE BANDS ARE ALL MAKING THEIR WAY THROUGH. THE NEXT GROUP TO SHOW UP TODAY IS A BAND THAT HAS THE RARE, RARE, RARE STATEMENT OF SAYING ONE OF THE FEW METAL BANDS IN THE LAST FEW YEARS TO HAVE THE MOST ALBUM SALES IN THEIR YEAR. ARE YOU READY FOR LINKIN PARK? (Applause and cheering) NOW, LINKIN PARK ARE MAKING THEIR WAY... THERE THEY ARE, ENTERING THE MuchMusic BUILDING. THERE'S JOE, PUSHING PHOENIX. EVERYBODY LOOKS HAPPY. CHESTER, JOHN, ROB... THEY'RE MAKING THEIR WAY INTO THE ENVIRONMENT. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT?

> WHAT?

> George: HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT LINKIN PARK? (Cheering) PLAYING THE SHOW TODAY AS PART OF THE SUMMER SANITARIUM. THEY'RE GOING ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND THEY'LL BE DOING THEIR OWN TOUR. THEY HAVE THE ALBUM, "METEORA." IT'S YOUR FRIENDS IN LINKIN PARK. HERE COMES CHESTER. GIVE IT UP! (Applause and cheering) LOOK AT THAT, EH? I'LL TELL YOU SOMETHING... THE REQUESTS COMING NON-STOP. (Loud cheering and applause) GREETING THE FANS... PEOPLE ARE LOSING THEIR MIND! SIX GUYS WHO HAVE MANAGED TO DO SOMETHING PRETTY REMARKABLE, SELLING A LOT OF RECORDS, KEEPING THEIR FANS, AND THEY'RE BACK WITH A NEW ONE, METEORA, THE IDEA OF SEEMING TIMELESS. WE'LL TALK TO THEM ABOUT THAT AND YOU ABOUT THAT. YOU CAN E-MAIL US NOW, START PHONING US AS WELL. IT'S A CHANCE TO TALK TO THE GUYS IN LINKIN PARK. IT'S THE MuchLoud SUMMER SANITARIUM AFTER PARTY. DUDE, IT'S THE MOUNTAIN MAN OF ROCK!

> NICE TO SEE YOU, MANAGE. -- NICE TO SEE YOU, MAN!

> PHOENIX IS HERE.

> HOW ARE YOU, DUDE? (Continued applause and cheering)

> George: THE GUYS IN LINKIN PARK MAKING THEIR WAY. THERE'S CHESTER AND SHINODA. SO... HOW'S EVERYBODY FEELING?

> GOOD!

> ALL RIGHT, MAN. WE'RE JUST EXCITED ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT IS COMING DOWN.

> George: DON'T FORGET: YOU CAN PHONE, E-MAIL, HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH THE GUYS IN LINKIN PARK. PEOPLE ARE GOING CRAZY GETTING READY. STILL TO COME, THE ALMIGHTY METALLICA. CHESTER BENNINGTON IS IN THE HOUSE. GOOD TO SEE YOU. MIKE STILL SIGNING AUTOGRAPHS?

> MIKE'S A TROOPER, MAN. WHAT'S UP, MIKE? SIGNING AUTOGRAPHS? (Continued applause and cheering)

> George: DO YOU EVER GET USED TO THIS KIND OF THING?

> MIKE ACTUALLY HOLDS THE WORLD'S RECORD FOR MOST AUTOGRAPHS.

> George: Mr. SHAKE-HANDS.

> WE HAVE ALMOST MISSED SHOWS BECAUSE HE'S SIGNING AUTOGRAPHS. YOU KNOW WHAT WE LIKE TO CALL MIKE BEHIND CLOSED DOORS? THE GLUE.

> George: THE WHAT?

> THE GLUE. TELL THE GLUE TO GET OVER HERE.

> George: HEY, GLUE! THE GLUE'S GOING TO MAKE HIS WAY UP HERE.

> CHECK THAT OUT.

> George: MIKE SHINODA. WELCOME TO THE SHOW. IT'S THE GUYS IN LINKIN PARK. WE'RE DOING IT, MAN. HOW DID THE SHOW GO TODAY? TALK ABOUT IT?

> MY OPINION WAS YESTERDAY WAS THE FIRST DAY AND, YOU KNOW, IT WAS AMAZING, YOU KNOW. BUT TODAY, THINGS WENT A LITTLE BIT MORE SMOOTHLY. WE HAD A LITTLE BIT MORE CONFIDENCE BECAUSE LAST NIGHT WENT SO WELL. PLUS ALL THE BANDS CAME OUT AFTER EVERY SHOW SAYING HOW GREAT THE CROWD WAS. WE WENT OUT AND EXPECTED NOTHING BUT THE BEST FROM PEOPLE IN TORONTO. YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING? (Applause and cheering)

> THAT'S WHAT WE GOT!

> George: IF YOU DIDN'T GET A CHANCE TO SEE THEM AT THE SHOW, HERE IT IS FROM EARLIER TODAY AT SKYDOME, LINKIN PARK ON THE SUMMER SANITARIUM TOUR.

> \M I want to heal \NM \M \M I want to feel \NM \M \M What I thought was never real \NM \M \M I want to feel what I felt so long \NM \M \M What you were changing me to \NM \M \M Don't you \NM \M \M Forget about... \NM \M (Applause and cheering)

> George: THERE'S YOUR MONSTERS OF ROCK! LINKIN PARK FROM SKYDOME EARLIER TODAY, THE SUMMER SANITARIUM TOUR. OH, THEY CAN'T GET ENOUGH. (Cheering)

> WHAT HAPPENED TO THE REST OF US?

> IT'S COOL, DUDE! EVERYBODY MAKE SOME NOISE! COME ON!

> THE GLUE!

> MIKE KICKED ASS TONIGHT.

> MOSTLY ME AND THEN A COUPLE OF SHOTS OF ME AND CHESTER... THAT SUCKS, YOU GUYS? WHAT'S UP WITH MuchMusic'S CAMERA CREW... THEY'VE GOT THE CAMERA ON ME RIGHT NOW.

> YOU, OVER HERE!

> MIKE SLIPPED YOU CASH BEFORE WE CAME OUT, DIDN'T HE?

> George: HE SAID, "MAKE SURE I'M REPRESENTED ON THE PROGRAM TONIGHT."

> IT'S NO GUITAR MIKE. LIKE THE ACTION FIGURES.

> George: YOU HAVE A NEW RECORD RIGHT NOW, THE IDEA OF BEING TIMELESS. BUT YOU HAVE AN INTERESTING POSITION, GOOD AND BAD. EVERYTHING HIT SO WELL FOR YOU ON THE FIRST ALBUM...

> IT'S DEFINITELY A MIXED BLESSING, IN SOME SENSES, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, WHEN WE WERE BEGINNING TO WORK ON THIS RECORD, OUR GOAL WITH IT WAS TO TRY AND PUT SOME WORK INTO IT AND MAKE SURE THE END PRODUCT WAS SOMETHING WE WERE HAPPY WITH. COMING OFF OF A SUCCESS LIKE "HYBRID THEORY," THE REAL CHALLENGE WITH "METEORA" WAS AT THE END OF THE THIS PROCESS WE HAD AN AM BUM SIX OF US COULD ESTABLISHED BEHIND AND BEGIN TO TOUR ON FOR TWO YEARS OR WHATEVER IT'S GOING TO BE.

> THE MOST AMAZING THING ABOUT BEING SO SUCCESSFUL IS THAT GUYS WILL ACTUALLY SCREAM OUT, "MY WIFE LOVES YOU!" NORMALLY GUYS DON'T WANT TO DO THAT. THEY'RE PROTECTIVE OF THEIR WIVES.

> George: JUST WAIT UNTIL YOU LOOK AT HER THE WRONG WAY... THEN YOU'LL BE HURTING, MAN! TO HAVE A RECORD THAT YOU CAN STAND BEHIND, ESPECIALLY YEARS DOWN THE RECORD, DO YOU EVER RUN THE RISK OF TRYING TO DO TOO MUCH IN THE STUDIO?

> EVERYBODY IN THE BAND PUTS IN THEIR SHARE AS BEST THEY CAN. THE GUYS ARE REALLY-- WE'RE A PRETTY VERSATILE GROUP OF GUYS, AND WE REALLY--

> SPEAK FOR YOURSELVES, DUDE! EXPECT FOR ME. I CAN ONLY RAP AND THAT'S ABOUT IT.

> FOR REAL, WE -- I THINK ALL THE GUYS ARE REALLY TALENTED IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT WAYS AND WE TRY AND MORE THAN JUST LIKE DOING EVERYTHING FOR THE SAKE OF DOING IT. I THINK THE GUYS ARE TALENTED WHAT THEY DO AND HAVE A GOOD TIME DOING IT. WHEN IT COMES TIME TO DO VIDEOS, JOE CAN STEP IN AND IT'S NOT LIKE HE'S JUST GOOD AT BEING WITH THE GROUP BUT HE'S GOOD AT DOING VIDEOS.

> LET'S HEAR IT FOR THE GLUE! COME ON! CHEERING)

> George: IT STARTS OFF IN HARMLESS RIBBING AND EVENTUALLY THIS IS GOING TO CREATE A REAL SPLIT IN THE BAND, ISN'T IT?

> FOR SURE! (Laughing) CHESTER AND I CAN'T EVEN SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER.

> MIKE AND I HAVE TO SIT AT THE END OF ANYTHING WHERE THE BAND IS SIT ANYTHING A ROW.

> WE HAVE TO DO IT SO THESE GUYS GET CAMERA TIME BECAUSE IF WE SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER, WHOEVER IS HERE, THEY DON'T GET CAMERA TIME AT ALL.

> THE GLUE HAS GONE TO HIS HEAD.

> George: HE'S DOING WITH THE GLUE WHAT THE RAMONES WERE DOING. IS THERE A PROBLEM IN A WAY, A CHALLENGE IN TRYING TO KEEP SIX PEOPLE IN THE GROUP WORKING TOGETHER?

> OUR GOAL AS A BAND IS TO MAKE MUSIC AND OUR GOAL HAS ALWAYS BEEN TO MAKE THE BEST MUSIC THAT WE POSSIBLY CAN. IF WE HAVE ANY FANS OUT THERE-- IF THIS WAS EARLY ON AND WE HAD FANS WE DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT, WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE WHEN THEY WOULD COME TO THE SHOW OR GET ANYTHING REGARDING THE BAND IT WAS SOMETHING SPECIAL AND MEANT SOMETHING TO THEM. IT'S NOT HARD TO KEEP SIX GUYS WHO JUST WANT TO MAKE MUSIC AND DO IT WELL AND DO IT WITH EVERYTHING THEY HAVE AND AS HONESTLY AS THEY CAN TO STAY ON THE SAME PATH; YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT TO US THAN MAKING MUSIC AND PERFORMING MUSIC AND HAVING THE RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR FANS, RIGHT? (Cheering)

> SO TO US, YOU KNOW, MAKING MUSIC IS A PRIVILEGE; YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING? IT'S BECAUSE OF ALL THESE PEOPLE OUT HERE THAT WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THIS FOR A LIVING; YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?

> George: ARE YOU THE KIND OF GUYS WHO CAN BE REALLY HONEST WITH EACH OTHER IN THE STUDIO? IS IT A HARSH ENVIRONMENT?

> YEAH, IT'S HARSH! (Laughing)

> THE SIX OF US KNEW EACH OTHER PRIOR TO STARTING THE BAND AND THAT HELP WAS THE COMMUNICATION ACROSS THE BOARD. IT'S NOT JUST IN THE STUDIO BUT THE ABILITY TO BE HONEST AND RESPECT ONE ANOTHER AND WHAT A GUY IS TELLING YOU OR WHAT SOMEBODY HAS TO SAY.

> IF YOU RESPECT A PERSON-- HERE WE GO!

> I'LL TALK OVER PHOENIX BECAUSE HE WON'T MIND--

> AND I'LL TALK OVER BRAD, BUT HE WOULDN'T CARE EITHER. LE

> I CAN TELL BRAD THAT HIS INTERJECTIONS ARE NOT FUNNY.

> AND I'LL SAY THAT'S AN OPINION STATEMENT, NOT A FACT.

> WE CAN SAY HOW MUCH OF US THINK BRAD'S JOKE WASN'T FUNNY? AND WE CAN RAISE OUR HANDS, AND IT'S FIVE-TO-ONE.

> BRAD'S JOKE WASN'T FUNNY.

> THAT'S HOW THE DIPLOMACY IN OUR BAND WORKS.

> George: BEAUTIFUL! YOU BETTER START GETTING A SOLID LAWYER, MAN!

> LET'S TALK ABOUT BRAD'S BEARD!

> George: I SAW THAT AND THOUGHT, "HOLY COW! THE MOUNTAIN MAN HAS SHOWN UP." WHAT'S GOING ON?

> IT'S NOT REAL. IT'S CALLED STIPPLE. I HAVE A MAKEUP ARTIST COME IN AND GLUE THE STRANDS OF HAIR INDIVIDUALLY.

> IT'S FROM MY FACE, PUT ON TO HISS. : TAKING A LONG TIME CONSIDERING THAT I CAN'T GROW A BEARD... OR ANY FACIAL HAIR AT ALL.

> George: THE NUMBER TO CALL US YOU KNOW IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH THE GUYS IN LINKIN PARK. RIGHT NOW WE'LL GO TO THE AUDIENCE. MIKE, WHERE ARE YOU?

> I'M MIKE PELE, FROM PARIS, ONTARIO. YOUR SHOW WAS AWESOME TODAY! I ALMOST DIED! I DID! MY QUESTION IS WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER AND GROWING UP WATCHING METALLICA AND LISTENING TO THEM, WHAT'S IT LIKE TO BE ON THEIR TOUR RIGHT NOW?

> IT'S PRETTY CRAZY BECAUSE I'M A HUGE METALLICA FAN AND FOR ME TO SAY AT THIS POINT IN MY CAREER TO SAY THAT I HAVE TOURED WITH BLACK SABBATH AND METALLICA, YOU KNOW, WITHIN A COUPLE OF YEARS, IT'S A HUGE THING FOR ME PERSONALLY. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? THESE ARE BANDS THAT I WAS ONLY DREAMING WOULD STILL BE AROUND, YOU KNOW, WHEN I WAS AT LEAST MY AGE OR AT LEAST AN OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY WITH THEM. IT'S A HUGE HONOUR, YOU KNOW?

> THANKS, BRAD!

> IT'S THE TYPE OF THING, TOO--

> THAT GUY IS A HARD-CORE METALLICA FAN, RIGHT?

> George: NICE!

> YEAH!

> YOU'VE GOT TO THINK OF IT, TOO-- SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO THINK OF IT THIS WAY: A LOT OF US ARE DOING MUSIC BECAUSE OF BANDS LIKE METALLICA. WE WENT TO SEE NIECE SHOWS AND GOT INSPIRED IN THAT AND WE'RE MAKING MUSIC TODAY BECAUSE OF GROUPS LIKE THAT, AND TO BE ABLE TO GO ON THE TOUR AND MAYBE SAY THANKS OR DO SOMETHING LIKE JUST WARM THE CROWD UP FOR THEM, IT'S OUR-- IT'S SOMETHING THAT WE'RE HAPPY TO DO.

> George: WHERE'S YOUR CONFIDENCE LEVEL WHEN IT COMES TO TOURING THIS RECORD NOW? DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE IT DOWN, OR WHEN YOU GET ON STAGE, ARE YOU PUKING OR DOING THAT STUFF?

> WE STARTED TOURING FOR "METEORA" DOING SOME SPECIAL SHOWS FOR FREE IN SMALL CLUBS AND THAT WAS A GREAT ENVIRONMENT TO KIND OF GAIN CONFIDENCE BACK AND LEARN TO PLAY THE SONGS WE HAD WRITTEN IN THE STUDIO. (Laughing)

> George: PEOPLE UNDERESTIMATE THE VALUE OF A STREET TEAM. WE WERE DOING A KID ROCK "I&I" SPECIAL ONE DAY AND I JUMPED ON THE STREET AND SOME KID WAS HOLDING UP A BIG LINKIN PARK SIGN AND YOUR RECORD HADN'T COME OUT AND PEOPLE WEREN'T SURE WHO YOU WERE BUT THE STREET TEAM WAS WORKING FOR YOU. DON'T YOU HAVE PRETTY MUCH THE SAME PEOPLE WORKING WITH YOU STILL?

> THE STREET TEAMS HAVE BEEN WITH US SINCE THE VERY BEGINNING AND SO MUCH OF WHAT WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO RIDES ON THEIR SHOULDERS. WE HAVE A BIG DEBT OF GRATITUDE TO THOSE PEOPLE WHO WERE THERE FROM THE BEGINNING AND THE PEOPLE WHO CONTINUE TO SUPPORT US TODAY.

> George: WORD OF MOUTH IS IMPORTANT AND THE INTERNET IS IMPORTANT. E-MAILS ARE CONTINUING TO COME IN. THIS IS FROM LINDA. "WHAT'S UP, FELLOWS?" SHE WANTS TO KNOW HOW YOU COME UP WITH THE IDEAS FOR THE MUSIC VIDEOS. WE TURN THIS OVER TO YOU, JOE.

> HOW DO YOU DO IT, JOE?

> GROWING UP, I READ A LOT OF COMIC BOOKS AND I HAVE A LOT OF BAD DREAMS AND SOMETIMES I HAVE NICE DREAMS...

> SOUNDS LIKE THE BEGINNING TO "THE HULK."

> I DRAW A LOT AND SPEND LOTS OF TIME SKETCHING AND WORKED IN SPECIAL EFFECTS, MY FILM BACKGROUND. I THINK OF ALL THOSE CRAZY THINGS, AND NOW THAT I'M A SO-CALLED ROCK STAR, I CAN MAKE THOSE THINGS COME TO LIFE, YOU KNOW.

> George: THAT'S THE IDEA. ART SCHOOL, YOU KNOW. IS IT THE KIND OF THING WHERE GUYS SHOW UP AND SAY, "WE HAVE AN IDEA FOR WHAT WE WANT THE VIDEO TO LOOK LIKE"?

> WE JUST SHOT THE VIDEO FOR AN UPCOMING SINGLE-- CAN'T TELL YOU WHAT-- BUT CHESTER AND I TALKED TOGETHER ON THE PHONE, KIND OF GOING OVER SOME IDEAS, AND IT TURNED INTO THE IDEA THAT WE SHOT.

> WE ACTUALLY WENT TO PRAGUE TO SHOOT PART OF THE VIDEO. IT'S COOL. IT'S A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN STUFF WE HAVE DONE IN THE PAST.

> George: YOU CAN BE SURE WE'LL SHOW IT HERE. MORE WITH THE CONVERSATION OF THE GUYS IN LINKIN PARK, BUT FIRST "FAINT," WITH THE GUYS FROM LINKIN PARK ON THE SUMMER SANITARIUM AFTER PARTY. (Applause and cheering)

> THANK YOU, ALL.

> LIKE A W.W.F. GOING ON!

> COME ON, SUCKERS!

> George: LINKIN PARK. CHESTER IS TRYING TO GET THE CROWD ROCKING AND ROLLING.

> I FEEL LIKE STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN OR SOMETHING.

> THAT'S RIGHT, BROTHER!

> George: NICE!

> THE SMOKE COMING OUT...

> George: ARE YOU WRESTLING FANS? FIRST OF ALL, LET'S START WITH YOU. HOW ARE YOU DOING? PEOPLE WERE CONCERNED WITH YOUR HEALTH--

> YEAH... IT WAS FUN. IT WAS A LOT OF FUN. I HAD A GOOD TIME, LOST CONTROL OF ALL MY BODY FUNCTIONS AND HAD A STABBING FEELING AND I COULDN'T POOP OR PEE... IT WASN'T-- I WASN'T ALLOWED TO EAT. IT WAS FUN. A GOOD TIME.

> George: YOU WOKE UP AND WEREN'T FEELING WELL?

> YEAH, WITHIN A COUPLE OF HOURS. "MAN, I DON'T FEEL GOOD," AT LIKE 10 O'CLOCK AND BY 12:30 BEING RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL. IT WAS WONDERFUL.

> George: WHAT WAS GOING THROUGH YOU GUYS' MINDS?

> CHESTER GETS SICK A BIT HERE AND THERE, AND IT'S NOT ANYTHING SERIOUS AND SO YOU FIRST HEAR AND YOU'RE LIKE, "OH, THAT SUCKS. CHESTER'S SICK AGAIN!" BUT THEN YOU HEAR HE GOT RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL IN AN AMBULANCE AND HE'S ON AN I.V., AND IT REALLY, YOU KNOW, REALLY SCARES YOU. SO WE WERE FREAKED OUT FOR AWHILE. AND WE WERE, YOU KNOW...

> THANKS, MIKE. YOU KNOW, ACTUALLY I HAVE TO SAY SOMETHING. I HAVE TO SAY THAT I REALLY APPRECIATE THE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF E-MAILS THAT I GOT FROM FANS AROUND THE WORLD, YOU KNOW, WISHING ME HEALTH, AND I HONESTLY THINK THAT BECAUSE OF ALL THE POSITIVE, YOU KNOW, THOUGHTS THAT WERE BEING ACCEPT MY WAY, THAT IT HELPED ME GET TO A POINT WHERE I COULD ACTUALLY BE WELL ENOUGH TO DO THIS TOUR. SO THANK YOU GUYS VERY MUCH FOR ALL THE SUPPORT, YOU KNOW? (Applause and cheering)

> George: YOU GUYS ARE YOUNG AND WHEN YOU'RE YOUNG AND DO WHAT YOU DO, YOU KIND OF HAVE A SENSE OF INVINCIBILITY. A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE THAT. YOU LOOK AT THE BAND AND THINGS ARE GOING WELL FOR THEM. WHEN YOU GO THROUGH THIS KIND OF SITUATION, DO YOU HAVE TO START TAKING A STEP BACK AND THINKING, "MAN, LIFE DOESN'T CARE WHAT WE DO OR WHO WE ARE"?

> IT'S KIND OF CRAZY BECAUSE IT'S BEEN SOMETHING THAT I HAVE BEEN DOING FOR A REALLY LONG TIME. I HAVE BEEN PLAYING SHOWS SINCE I WAS 13 YEARS OLD. I MADE MY FIRST RECORD WHEN I WAS 16. IT WAS LIKE I HAVE NEVER CANCELLED A SHOW EVER, AND TO ALL OF A SUDDEN, YOU KNOW, BE SLAMMED TO THE GROUND AND, YOU KNOW, YOU'RE CONVULSING AND YOUR LIFE IS KIND OF PASSING IN FRONT OF YOUR EYES... YOU KNOW, RIGHT BEFORE THE BIGGEST TOUR OF YOUR LIFE WITH THE BIGGEST BAND IN THE WORLD, YOU KNOW, IT'S DEFINITELY SOMETHING THAT KIND OF PUTS THINGS BACK INTO PERSPECTIVE, YOU KNOW.

> George: HOW ABOUT YOU? HOW DID YOU GUYS FEEL WHEN THIS HAPPENED? HOW DO YOU LOOK AT LIFE TO BEGIN WITH? WHEN YOU GO THROUGH THIS, DO YOU START TO QUESTION--

> I THINK FOR ALL OF US IT WAS A BIT OF A REMINDER HOW FORTUNATE WE ARE TO BE ABLE TO DO WHAT WE DO. IT'S A LOT OF PEOPLE'S DREAM TO BE ABLE TO DO SOMETHING THAT THEY LOVE DOING AND TO BE ABLE TO MAKE A LIVING OUT OF IT. FOR US, JUST HAVING THIS HAPPEN AND SEEING ONE OF OUR BEST FRIENDS GET SICK AND SEEING HIM GO IN THE HOSPITAL AND GETTING TO BE ABLE TO TAKE A BROAD PERSPECTIVE AT WHAT WE GET TO DO AND HOW WE GET TO TOUR THE WORLD AND PLAY MUSIC, I THINK IT JUST REINSTILLED IN US THE IDEA THAT THIS IS SPECIAL AND IT'S NOT SOMETHING WE SHOULD TAKE FOR GRANTED.

> George: IS IT THE KIND OF THING THAT YOU GUYS MAY HAVE STARTED TO TAKE FOR GRANTED, WITH THE POSITION YOU'RE IN AND YOUR RELATIONSHIP AS FRIENDS?

> WE TRY ALWAYS NOT TO TAKE THINGS FOR GRANTED AND WE FEEL LIKE WE'RE REALLY PRIVILEGED. WE HAVE THE BEST FANS IN THE WORLD, WE THINK-- (Applause and cheering) -- AND WE'RE HONESTLY ALWAYS LOOKING FOR WAYS TO GIVE BACK TO FANS AND PEOPLE OUT THERE BECAUSE WE FEEL WE HAVE BEEN SO LUCKY IN OUR CAREER AND WE WANT TO DO POSITIVE THINGS FOR PEOPLE, TOO.

> George: WHEN YOU WATCH BANDS LIKE METALLICA, I'M SURE YOU HAVE SEEN THE STORIES BEHIND THE MUSIC AND ALL THAT AND IT'S BY Sr.-- BIZARRE HOW THE CLICHES RING TRUE, ALL THE TIME. BANDS ALWAYS GO THROUGH THIS BIZARRE PERIODS.

> THERE'S A FLIP SIDE TO WHAT'S GOING ON IN THIS BUSINESS. THE THING IS THAT BANDS PUT THEIR LIVES INTO MAKING MUSIC AND THE ROAD, WHEN YOU GET TO A PLACE WHERE YOU'RE PERFORMING EVERY NIGHT IN DIFFERENT PLACES AND YOU'RE RIPPED AWAY FROM THE THINGS THAT YOU LOVE AND THAT ARE NORMAL, YOU REACT IN DIFFERENT WAYS, AND I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE, NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, WOULD REACT IN A VERY SELF-DESTRUCTIVE MANNER IF YOU WERE TORN AWAY FROM THE THINGS THAT HELPED KEEP YOU GROUNDED THROUGH YOUR LIFE. SO YOU HAVE TO RELEARN HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF IN A WHOLE DIFFERENT WAY. THE LONELINESS YOU FEEL, THE ISOLATION THAT YOU FEEL ON THE ROAD CAN GET TO IT-- CAN GET TO YOU. IT'S A BLESSING TO BE DOING WHAT WE'RE DOING; DON'T GET ME WRONG. BUT STILL, BEING BACKSTAGE AND IN YOUR BUNK AND SEPARATED FROM PEOPLE AND FLYING ALL OVER THE PLACE AND HAVING BODYGUARDS AROUND YOU... IT KIND OF SEPARATES YOU FROM REGULAR LIFE AND THAT'S A HARD THING TO COPE WITH.

> YOU TRY TO STAY GROUNDED AND TRY TO STAY IN TOUCH WITH WHO YOU ARE AND WHERE YOU COME FROM, AND THAT HELPS IN A SENSE THAT-- I THINK IT HELPS WHEN YOU'RE WRITING NEW STUFF, MAKING MUSIC, DOING SHOWS. IF YOU CAN REMEMBER THAT, THAT WILL KEEP YOU ON TRACK AND KEEP YOU LOCKED INTO THE REASONS YOU'RE DOING IT.

> George: IF YOU WANT TO ASK QUESTIONS OF THE GUYS, YOU CAN. RIGHT NOW, NEW BRUNSWICK AND MARK ON THE PHONE. GOOD DAY, SIR.

> Caller: WHAT'S UP, GEORGE?

> George: GOOD. HOW YOU DOING, MAN?

> Caller: GOOD. WHAT'S UP, LINKIN PARK? YOU MENTIONED GROUNDED AND THAT'S WHAT I WAS GOING TO SAY, THAT I THINK YOU GUYS ARE ONE OF THE MOST GROUNDED BANDS OUT THERE RIGHT NOW.

> George: ARE YOU FOLLOWING THEM?

> NO, I HAVE BEEN A FAN SINCE "HYBRID" FIRST HIT AND I FIND LYRICALLY AND LIVE PERFORMANCES AND DVDs THAT I HAVE THAT YOU GUYS ARE CALM, DOWN-TO-EARTH, GROUNDED GUYS. THERE'S A LACK OF THAT IN METAL RIGHT NOW OUT THERE.

> THANKS A LOT.

> Caller: NO PROBLEM. THAT LEADS ME TO ASK YOU WHAT INFLUENCED YOU GUYS-- OBVIOUSLY MUSIC-- I'M A MUSICIAN SO I KNOW WHAT DRIVES YOU TO MAKE MUSIC, BUT WHAT WERE YOUR INFLUENCES GROWING UP MUSICALLY THAT BROUGHT YOU TO BE WHERE YOU'RE AT TODAY IN YOUR HEAD SPACE TO WRITE AND KICK A... WHATEVER, TO DO IT.

> ONE OF THE COOL THINGS IS THAT WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT INFLUENCES AND WE ALL HAVE A LOT OF BANDS WE LIKE TOGETHER BUT JOE AND MIKE LISTEN TO MORE HIP 407 THAN THE REST OF US. -- MORE HIP HOP THAN THE REST OF US. I LISTENED TO JAZZ, AND SLY AND THINGS THAT COMPLETELY ARE DIFFERENT THAT INFLUENCE US.

> AND WE GREW UP LISTEN TO BANDS THAT INFLUENCED OUR LIVES AND INFLUENCED THE WAY WE THOUGHT AND PERCEIVED THINGS AND THAT'S A BIG PART OF WHAT MADE US WANT TO MAKE MUSIC, THAT WE'RE A HUGE FAN OF MUSIC. THERE'S LOTS OF PEOPLE IN THE CROWD RIGHT NOW-- (Cheering) -- THAT ARE IN BANDS AND MAKING THEIR OWN MUSIC. THEY'RE NOT NECESSARILY DRAWING FROM ANY PARTICULAR THING.

> SOME DAY THEY'LL BE SITTING UP HERE SAYING THE SAME THING BECAUSE INEVITABLY, WE WERE KIND OF ACKNOWLEDGING THIS AT THE SHOW TONIGHT A LITTLE BIT. THERE'S KIDS WHO ARE COME TO THE SHOWS THAT ARE IN THOSE BANDS THAT ARE JUST, YOU KNOW, SO HUNGRY...

> AND THEY'LL BE PLAYING THESE SHOWS A FEW YEARS FROM NOW.

> George: AND CHANGING PEOPLE'S LIVES AS WELL--

> ABSOLUTELY.

> George: A GREAT RESPONSIBILITY. MORE CONVERSATION WITH THE GUYS AT LINKIN PARK. STICK AROUND. \M I can't feel... \NM \M (Applause and cheering)

> George: YOU'RE BACK INSIDE MuchMusic. WE'RE IN THE ENVIRONMENT. THIS IS THE MuchLoud SUMMER SANITARIUM AFTER PARTY. THE GUYS IN LINKIN PARK CONTINUE TO HANG AROUND. DO YOU FIND THAT IT IS DIFFICULT TO HAVE A NORMAL LIFE? (Continued applause and cheering)

> George: HERE'S A SURPRISE! IT'S THE SINGER! DO YOU FIND IT'S DIFFICULT TO KEEP A NORMAL LIFE?

> HE SAID DO YOU FIND IT'S DIFFICULT TO KEEP A NORMAL LIFE?

> I DON'T KNOW. WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? (Applause and cheering)

> DO YOU FIND IT'S DIFFICULT TO BE A HAM?

> NO. WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? (Cheering)

> George: HOW DID THAT JOKE GO OVER? TAKE A VOTE IN THE BAND?

> IT WAS FUNNY.

> C-MINUS.

> George: TOUGH JUDGE OVER THERE. THE PEOPLE WHO MATTER TO YOU... YOU MAKE A COMMITMENT TO THIS PROJECT, TO THIS BAND AND WHAT YOU DO. THE PEOPLE WHO MATTER TO YOU MAKE A COMMITMENT TO YOU. IT'S DIFFICULT TO GET EVERYBODY TO MAKE A COMMITMENT TO THE SAME THING, ISN'T IT?

> ABSOLUTELY.

> YEAH. I THINK IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE EVERYBODY TRY TO BE INTO ONE THING; YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? THAT'S WHY IT'S IMPORTANT THAT THERE'S ALL THESE DIFFERENT KINDS OF MUSIC IN THE WORLD. THERE'S ALL DIFFERENT FLAVOURS. NOBODY IS THE SAME. THAT'S SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT THIS TOUR, I THINK, THE FACT THAT THERE ISN'T ANYTHING THAT'S REMOTELY THE SAME. EVEN THOUGH THERE MIGHT BE SOME ELEMENTS IN EACH AND EVERY THING THAT'S SIMILAR, EVERY BAND BRINGS SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND THAT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING ABOUT MUSIC.

> George: WHAT ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO MATTER TO YOU, GIRLFRIENDS, WIVES, FAMILY?

> GOING ON THE ROAD YOU LEAVE LOVED ONES BEHIND AND THAT'S A SACRIFICE WE HAVE TO MAKE AS A BAND. OUT ON THE ROAD, WE'RE ALL DOING THIS, ALL TOGETHER, DOING THE SAME THING, LEAVING FAMILY AND FRIENDS, AND SO IT'S COOL. WE GET A FAMILY ON THE ROAD, ALL OF US HANGING TOGETHER, HANGING OUT WITH OTHER BANDS. EVERYBODY ON THE TOUR IS REALLY COOL. IT'S COMFORTABLE TO BE ON THE ROAD AND HAVE A GOOD TIME.

> WHEN WE SAY FAMILY, WE MEAN LITERALLY. ROB AND I HAVE ADOPTED CHESTER OFFICIALLY.

> AS THEIR SON.

> WE'LL NEED ANOTHER BAND VOTE. (Applause)

> YEAH!


> George: THE BIGGER QUESTION IS HOW DID YOU GUYS QUALIFY TO BE ADOPTIVE PARENTS?

> WE HAD TO DO A LOT OF PAPERWORK.

> WE WENT OVERSEAS AND MADE UP PAPERWORK.

> George: When you go home, is it the same? Or does it change every time you go back?

> WHAT'S KIND OF COOL ABOUT BEING IN OUR BAND IS WE HAVE PROBABLY THE MOST RESPECTFUL FANS IN THE WORLD, THE BEST FANS IN THE WORLD-- (Applause and cheering) -- AND NOT ONLY ARE THEY RESPECTFUL TO US BUT ONE ANOTHER. WHEN WE'RE AT HOME, YOU KNOW, IN MY CASE ANYWAYS, YOU KNOW, ANY TIME I SEE A FAN ON THE STREET, IN A MOVIE, IN THE STORE, THEY'RE COOL AND DON'T MAKE A BIG, HUGE SCENE. THEY JUST COME UP AND GIVE THEIR REGARDS TO OUR MUSIC AND IF THEY WANT AN AUTOGRAPH, I GIVE IT TO THEM, TAKE PICTURES. LE WE MAKE OURSELVES OPEN TO OUR FANS AND THAT'S WHY IT'S KIND OF COOL TO GO OUT IN PUBLIC BECAUSE PEOPLE KNOW WE'RE EASILY ACCESSIBLE.

> George: BUT ON THE ROAD, IT'S A STATE OF SUSPENDED REALITY, KIND OF LIVING IN A BUBBLE. WHEN YOU GET BACK TO WHEREVER IT IS YOU LIVE, THINGS CHANGE AND YOU HAVE TO ASSIMILATE AGAIN.

> ONE FUNNY STORY THAT HAPPENS TO PEOPLE WHEN YOU'RE TOURING, YOU USUALLY SLEEP ON THE TOUR BUS, TRAVEL FROM CITY TO CITY AND SLEEPING AT NIGHT ON THE ROAD. YOU KIND OF GET USED TO FALLING ASLEEP TO THE LULL OF THE BUS MOVING ON THE ROAD AND SOME GUYS ACTUALLY HAVE A PROBLEM WHEN THEY GO HOME SLEEP ANYTHING A BED THAT'S NOT MOVING.

> LITERALLY.

> George: YOU CAN PAY FOR THOSE NOW. IS IT WHEN YOU GET HOME YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILIES AND RELATIONSHIPS, THEIR LIVES HAVE TO CARRY ON.

> I THINK WE ALL DO A PRETTY GOOD JOB OF KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH ALL THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN IMPORTANT TO US THROUGH OUR LIVES. EVERYBODY IN THE BAND HANGS OUT WITH THE FRIENDS THAT THEY HAVE HUNG OUT WITH THEIR ENTIRE LIFE. I HAVE MY OLD BOY FROM GROWING UP AND EVERYTHING. I THINK-- THEY'RE PART OF THE REASON THAT I THINK WE'RE STILL GROUNDED, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? WE STAY IN TOUCH WITH THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE HELPED US GET TO THE POINT WE'RE AT.

> George: YOU WERE FRUSTRATED WITH YOUR SITUATION IN MUSIC BEFORE YOU HOOKED UP WITH THESE GUYS?

> YEAH.


> George: ALMOST FELT AS THOUGH YOU WANTED TO QUIT DOING WHAT YOU WERE DOING.

> I WAS STUCK IN PHOENIX, LIKE A DEAD END. THERE'S NO BEGINNING, NO END...

> DESERT!

> THERE'S TALENT BUT NOBODY IS GOING TO SEE IT. IN L.A., YOU CAN WALK ACROSS THE STREET TO A BAR. THERE WAS JUST NO ACTIVITY THERE, SO I FELT LIKE I WAS NEVER GOING TO LEAVE AND I PRETTY MUCH QUIT AND THEN THEIR DEMO DROPPED OUT OF THE SKY INTO MY MAILBOX, THROUGH ONE OF OUR CLOSE FRIENDS, AND SO I HEARD IT AND SOMETHING INSIDE MY HEAD SAID, YOU KNOW, "THIS IS THE ONE. YOU'VE GOT TO PACK YOUR BAGS AND MOVE TO L.A. AND MAGIC IS GOING TO HAPPEN WITH THESE GUYS." I MOVED OUT AND WE CLICKED RIGHT AWAY. FOUR YEARS LATER, HERE WE ARE ON MuchMusic DOING SUMMER SANITARIUM. IT'S KIND OF CRAZY. (Applause and cheering)

> George: BEFORE HE SHOWS UP, DID YOU GUYS HAVE A FEELING LIKE YOU WERE GOING TO BE ABLE TO PULL IT OFF?

> I THINK LIKE ONE THING TO TAKE AWAY FROM OUR EXPERIENCE OF WHAT HAPPENED TO US WHEN WE FORMED IS WE WEREN'T SUCCESSFUL AT ALL FOR LIKE YEARS AND--

> George: TONS OF REJECTIONS--

> WE WERE THE FURTHEST FROM SUCCESSFUL AT YOU COULD POSSIBLY BE, PEOPLE TURNING US DOWN THREE AND FOUR TIMES.

> THEY WOULD COME TO SHOWCASES, WHERE A BAND GOES IN THE PRACTICE STUDIO AND A COUPLE OF REPS, A& R PEOPLE COME DOWN AND THEY STAND THERE LIKE THIS... THE BAND PLAYS REAL HARD AND THE A&R PEOPLE WATCH AND THEN THEY WALK OUT AND LEAVE. "THANKS, WE'LL CALL YOU." AND THEN THEY DON'T CALL.

> NO, THEY CALL BUT CALL AND SAY, "YOU SUCKED! THERE'S NO WAY WE'RE GOING TO SIGN YOU."

> OR WORSE, THEY SAY, "HEY, WE NEED TO HEAR YOU AGAIN," AND THEY COME AND DO IT AGAIN.

> BUT THE MORAL IS IF WE HAD QUIT AT A ROAD BLOCK, WE WOULDN'T BE HERE TODAY. PEOPLE STARTING OUT IN BANDS RIGHT NOW OR EVEN PLAYING FOR AWHILE, IF YOU REALLY BELIEVE IN SOMETHING...

> George: WHERE'S JEFF?

> PERSISTENCE IS KEY TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL. EVERYONE OUT THERE CAN DO IT IF THEY BELIEVE IN THEMSELVES.

> George: JEFF, YOU'RE IN A BAND--

> WE SAW YOU EARLIER.

> YOU PUT ON AN AMAZING SHOW TONIGHT. I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST INCREDIBLE. MY QUESTION IS NOW YOU GUYS HAVE ACCOMPLISHED SO MUCH IN YOUR PAST, SO FAR IN YOUR CAREER. I WAS WONDERING WHAT YOU ARE STRIVING FOR IN THE FUTURE?

> IT'S A DIFFICULT QUESTION BECAUSE WE KIND OF-- WE KIND OF DON'T KNOW. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? WE KNOW WHEN WE MAKE AN ALBUM THAT WE WANT TO BE PROUD OF IT, WANT TO BE ABLE TO LISTEN TO IT FOR AS LONG AS WE ARE PLAYING TOGETHER, YOU KNOW. IN THE CASE OF "HYBRID THEORY," WE'RE HAPPY NOW WE'RE STILL ABLE TO PLAY THESE SONGS LIVE LIKE TONIGHT AND WE'RE STILL ENJOYING THEM, HAVING A GOOD TIME DOING THAT. WE WANT TO CONTINUE TO KEEP DOING THAT, WHATEVER IT IS THAT WE CAN BE PROUD OF, CAN MAKE YOU HAPPY WITH AND YOU'RE HAPPY WITH AND IT KEEPS EVERYBODY'S KIND OF LIVELIHOOD UP.

> MAYBE SIX YEARS AGO OR SO WE ALL SAT DOWN IN A REHEARSAL SPACE AND STARTED MAKING GOALS FOR THE BAND AND BRAD AND I'S GOAL WAS THAT WE WANTED TO PLAY AT THE WHISKEY. THAT WAS A SMALL CLUB IN L.A.

> THE CLUB THAT THE DOORS ARE SO LEGENDARY FOR--

> YES, 300, 400--

> 250 MAYBE, BUT A SMALL CLUB IN L.A. THAT WAS OUR GOAL. MIKE HAD COME IN WITH HIS GOAL SHEET, ALL TYPEWRITTEN, WRITTEN OUT, ONE BEING HE WANTED TO WIN A GRAMMY. BRAD AND I MADE FUN OF HIM, THAT KIND OF STUFF. SIX YEARS LATER, 5-HAVING WON A GRAMMY AND EVERYTHING ELSE, BRAD AND I HAVE BOTH BEEN EMBARRASSED ENOUGH TO NEVER SET GOALS WITHIN THE BAND BECAUSE WE FELT WE SET THE BAR SO LOW. (Laughing)

> BUT IT'S A BIG DEAL. I SPENT-- IN MY BANDS IN PHOENIX, I SPENT MY ENTIRE EIGHT YEARS PLAYING IN BANDS TRYING TO PLAY A SHOW AT THE WHISKEY, JUST TO GET OUT FROM ONE CITY TO DO THAT SHOW FOR ME WAS A HUGE DEAL, TOO. ACCOMPLISHING THAT WAS ACTUALLY A BIG DEAL. BUT IN HINDSIGHT, NOW WE'RE DOING SHOWS WITH TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE... 250 PEOPLE IS LIKE THE PEOPLE BACKSTAGE LOADING GEAR; YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? IT'S KIND OF CRAZY. IT'S DEFINITELY SOMETHING THAT WE NEVER EXPECTED IN OUR LIVES TO HAPPEN. WE JUST WANTED TO MAKE MUSIC. WE JUST WANTED TO GET INTO THE POSITION AND NOW WE'RE IN A BLESSED POSITION.

> WE HAD ACCOMPLISHED SOME OF THE THINGS WE SET OUT TO DO AND WE PUT OUT OUR THIRD RECORD AND THERE ARE BANDS LIKE METALLICA AND RADIOHEAD WHO ARE CAREER BANDS AND WHEN THEY PLAY A SHOW, THEY'RE DRAWING FROM MATERIAL OF LIKE 20 YEARS. WE SEE THESE BANDS AND IT'S INSPIRATION TO US AND WE'RE TAKING IT ONE STEP AT A TIME, HOPING TO BECOME ONE OF THOSE ACTS WITH LONGEVITY.

> George: DID YOU GET TO PLAY THE WHISKEY EVENTUALLY?

> WE ACTUALLY SOLD OUT. WE ACCOMPLISHED THAT GOAL.

> George: STICK AROUND. THE GUYS OF LINKIN PARK WITH "SOMEWHERE I BELONG." (Applause and cheering)

> THANK YOU.

> George: LINKIN PARK, THE SUMMER SANITARIUM AFTER PARTY. METALLICA WILL BE HERE. LINKIN PARK CONTINUE TO HANG OUT. YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE PICK UP TRAVEL MAGAZINES BECAUSE THEY WANT TO FIND SOMEPLACE TO GO. YOU GUYS, ON THE OTHER HAND, GET SOMETHING ELSE OUT OF IT, DON'T YOU? THIS RECORD.

> WE DIDN'T ACTUALLY PICK IT UP. IT WAS JUST LAYING IN THE BACK OF OUR-- ON TOUR IN EUROPE, OUR BUS DRIVER LEFT SCATTERED MAGAZINES BACK THERE FOR PEOPLE TO CHECK OUT, WHATEVER. WE SAW IT AND IT CAUGHT OUR EYE. OF COURSE IT WAS "METEORA," A PICTURE ON THE FRONT. TO US, IT WAS SOMETHING THAT SOUNDED COOL, LOOKED COOL, HAD THIS KIND OF TIMELESS, EPIC QUALITY THAT IS WHAT WE WERE STRIVING FOR WHEN WE WERE WRITING THE ALBUM. AS A GOAL, THAT'S KIND OF WHY WE CAME BACK TO THAT NAME AT THE END.

> George: THE GREAT CHALLENGE, TO BE TIMELESS.

> THE GLUE HAS SPOKEN.

> George: WHAT DOES THE HAND THINK OF THAT?

> I'M THE PASTE.

> I'M ACTUALLY THE EDIBLE PASTE THAT THEY GIVE YOU IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

> George: I THINK THAT'S ONLY ON THE SIMPSONS WHERE THEY ACTUALLY EAT IT.

> I ACTUALLY ATE IT.

> WE NEED TO CLARIFY. IF WE KEEP TALKING ABOUT THIS JOKE, WE NEED TO CLARIFY WHAT IT IS. BRAD HAD SAID IN A COUPLE OF INTERVIEWS THAT I WAS THE GLUE THAT WHEN WE WERE RECORDING THAT I HELD--

> YOU SAID THAT, DUDE! YOU SAID IT ABOUT YOURSELF! (Laughing)

> I WAS INTERVIEWED BY "ROLLING STONE," AND--

> DON'T QUESTION THE GLUE.

> THEY WERE TRYING TO PUSH ME TO SAY, "ARE YOU WRITING EVERYTHING?" ALL THIS WEIRD STUFF AND I WAS LIKE, "NO, THAT'S NOT HOW IT WORKS IN THE BAND," AND I KIND OF TOLD THEM WHAT BRAD HAD SAID-- NOW THESE GUYS MAKE FUN OF ME FOR SUPPOSEDLY TOOTING MY OWN HORN WHEN I KNOW THIS GUY SAID IT TWICE BEFORE I DID.

> CLEAR IT UP ON THE AIR! LET IT BE KNOWN!

> I COMPLETELY DEFER TO THE GLUE.

> George: SIX PERFECTIONISTS IN THE BAND? IS THAT HOW YOU DESCRIBE IT?

> THAT'S AN UNDERSTATEMENT. IT'S DIFFICULT TO GET YOURSELF INTO SOMETHING ALONG WITH SIX OTHER GUYS WITH SIX OTHER OPINIONS.

> IT'S DIFFICULT FOR YOU TO GET INTO SOMETHING. CHESTER IS LIKE HE DOESN'T LIKE ANYTHING...

> I HAVEN'T BOUGHT A RECORD IN SIX YEARS BECAUSE IT ALL SUCKS! THE ONLY TWO I BOUGHT WERE OUR OWN SIMPLY BECAUSE I FELT OBLIGATED, KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

> FELT SORRY FOR US.

> George: YOU WEREN'T DOWNLOADING YOUR RECORD?

> ACTUALLY, THE COOL THING ABOUT BEING IN A BAND THAT YOU REALLY ENJOY IS THE FACT THAT I ACTUALLY LIKE OUR MUSIC. WE ACTUALLY GET TO CREATE THE MUSIC THAT WE WANT TO HEAR. SO WE'RE JUST LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE OTHER PEOPLE THAT ENJOY LISTENING TO IT, TOO, LIKE EVERYBODY HERE, RIGHT? (Applause and cheering)

> George: LOTS MORE--

> HE DID IT AGAIN!

> THEY LOVE IT, RIGHT?

> George: I THINK IT'S A BET TO SEE HOW MANY TIMES HE CAN GET THE CROWD GOING. THE MuchLoud SUMMER SANITARIUM AFTER PARTY CONTINUES! (Applause and cheering)

> George: YOUR MuchLoud SUMMER SANITARIUM AFTER PARTY. METALLICA IS ON THE WAY! THE GUYS IN LINKIN PARK CONTINUE TO HANG AROUND. THE FANS ARE HAPPY. LET'S GET RIGHT TO IT! TALKING ABOUT THE FIRST TIME YOU HEARD METALLICA, THE FIRST TIME YOU HEARD METALLICA...

> THE FIRST SONG I EVER HEARD WAS "TRAPPED UNDER ICE," AND TO THIS DAY, THAT'S MY FAVOURITE SONG.

> George: "TAKE A LOOK TO THE SKY JUST BEFORE YOU DIE BECAUSE THAT'S THE LAST TIME YOU WILL."

> YES. I DO THAT EVERY NIGHT.

> George: YOU LOOK TO THE SKY? YOU NEVER KNOW. DO YOU REMEMBER THE WHOLE SITUATION?

> OH, MAN, I WAS LIKE-- I CAN'T REMEMBER WHERE I WAS. I THINK I FOUND THE TAPE. EVERY TAPE THAT I HAVE EVER FOUND, IT'S BEEN A BAND THAT I REALLY LIKE.

> George: DID YOU FIND IT IN A RECORD STORE?

> I FOUND "RIDE THE LIGHTNING" AND PUT IT IN AND I WAS LIKE "THIS IS BAD ASS!" AND THEN I FOUND A BLANK TAPE WITH THE MISFITS ON ONE SIDE AND "MILO GOES TO COLLEGE" BY THE DECENT DEPARTMENTS, THE GREATEST PUNK BAND EVER, AND I WAS SCORING ON MUSIC, FOR FREE. THAT'S WHAT KIND OF PROPELLED THE INTERNET THING, WAS MY TWO FINDINGS.

> George: YOU JUST ENDORSED IT. DOWNLOAD LINKIN PARK. CHESTER IS COOL WITH IT. YOU HAD SECURITY GUARDS PROTECTING YOUR RECORD, DIDN'T YOU, SO THAT IT DIDN'T GET LEAKED?

> WE WERE IN NEW YORK MIXING THE RECORD AND WE MET UP WITH FRIENDS AND WE HAD SECURITY WITH US, AND THEY WERE LIKE, "WHOA! YOU HAVE SECURITY NOW?" "OH, THEY'RE NOT GUARDING US. THEY'RE GUARDING THE TAPES."

> George: CELINE, YOU HAVE A QUESTION FOR THE GUYS?

> THIS IS DIRECTED TOWARD MIKE AND CHESTER. WHEN YOU GUYS WRITE THE LYRICS OF THE SONGS AND MUSIC, WHERE CUSS THE FEELING AND EMOTION COME FROM?

> WELL, I---

> I'LL TAKE IT.

> CHESTER AND I HAVING DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS, GROWING UP IN DIFFERENT PLACES, WITH DIFFERENT PEOPLE, WE HAVE DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES. THE SONGS COME FROM THOSE THINGS BUT WHEN WE GET TOGETHER AND WRITE ABOUT IT, WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THINGS ARE PRETTY OPEN WITHIN THE BAND, ESPECIALLY WHEN WE'RE WRITING LYRICS AND GENERALLY WE'LL KIND OF JUST START TALKING ABOUT-- WE'LL START WRITING ON A SONG, LISTEN TO THE MUSIC AND KIND OF VIKING AND WRITING SOME THINGS DOWN AND WHATEVER HITS FIRST, STRIKES US FIRST, THAT'S THE WAY WE'LL GO AND WE'LL JUST KIND OF TALK IT OUT AND FIGURE OUT HOW WE CAN BOTH RELATE TO THAT PARTICULAR THING.

> George: ARE THEY EVER SINGING SONGS OR RAPPING THINGS THAT YOU'RE SITTING BACK HOME GOING, "WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?"

> NO, THAT NEVER HAPPENS. NO WAY.

> TOTALLY LYING!

> LIKE A PRESS CONFERENCE.

> "SOMEWHERE I BELONG" IS LIKE A FUNNY STORY.

> HE ALWAYS STARTS FURNISH ANY STORIES WITH THE WORDS, "THIS IS A FUNNY STORY."

> OKAY. I HAVE AN UNFUNNY ANECDOTE ABOUT "SOMEWHERE I BELONG." IT WAS ONE OF THE FIRST SONGS WE STARTED WRITING WITH PRO TOOLS ON THE BUS FOR OZZFEST TWO SUMMERS AGO. MIKE AND JOE AND CHESTER WOUND UP COMING UP WITH THIS REALLY COOL BACKWARDS GUITAR HOOK AND THE SONG ACTUALLY TOOK 18 MONTHS TO FINISH BECAUSE WE WERE IN THE STUDIO AND THEY WENT THROUGH 40 OR 50 CHORUSES-- INSANE!

> EVERY TIME THEY CAME OUT WITH-- MIKE WOULD BE IN THIS LITTLE CAVE FOR TEN HOURS AND COME OUT PALE AND SWEATY AND BE SURE THAT HE HAD THE RIGHT CHORUS AND WE WOULD BE LIKE, "OH, THAT'S OKAY..."

> IT'S THE WORST THING, TOO: THERE WAS A CAVE IN THE STUDIO AND THESE LITTLE BACK ROOMS WHERE YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO RECORD LIKE-- YOU PUT LOUD CABINETS BACK THERE, AND IT'S DARK AND QUIET, SOUNDPROOF DOORS, AND I WOULD GO IN, WORK ON THIS THING AND COME OUT, "WHAT DO YOU THINK?" AND THE WORST RESPONSE TO GET IS... (Silence)

> George: GREAT. IT'S LIKE AN "A&R GUY" WATCHING THE BAND.

> THAT'S WHAT I GOT FROM BRAD ABOUT 39, 49 TIMES.

> IT'S A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. IT'S A PAINFULLY TORTUOUS EXPERIENCE. THE GUYS GET LIKE A COUPLE OF YEARS TO WORK OUT THEIR PARTS AND COME UP WITH IDEAS...

> George: YOU GET TEN MINUTES!

> TAKING THEIR TIME, YOU KNOW, SITTING THERE MAKING THEIR PARTS, WHATEVER, AND REALLY WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT, YOU KNOW, ROB AND I THINK MIKE AND I ARE PUT UNDER THE MOST PRESSURE, AND JOE ALSO...

> AND PHOENIX... BASICALLY I'M SAYING THAT PHOENIX AND BRAD HAVE THE EASY LIFE WHEN IT COMES TO MAKING RECORDS BECAUSE THEY GET TO SPEND TWO YEARS DILLY-DALLYING AND WE'RE UNDER THE GUN FOR TWO MONTHS, "FIGURE IT OUT AND MAKE IT GREAT."

> George: LET'S TAKE A WALK OUTSIDE.

> TO BE FAIR, I HAVE THE INDOOR RECORD FOR RECORDING ON "METEORA." I FINISHED MY PART IN TWO DAYS. THANK YOU. (Applause and cheering)

> George: BECAUSE YOU'RE GOOD OR THEY WERE EASY? WHICH ONE?

> I'LL LET YOU GUYS DECIDE.

> George: LET'S TAKE A WALK OUTSIDE. HERE COMES LINKIN PARK! (Applause and cheering)

> George: AGAIN, METALLICA IS COMING BY, SO GET YOUR E-MAILS IN. START CALLING WITH YOUR QUESTIONS. THE ALMIGHTY METALLICA WILL BE HERE SHORTLY. LINKIN PARK BACK OUTSIDE HERE. IT IS YOUR MuchLoud SUMMER SANITARIUM AFTER PARTY. LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE. USUALLY IT TAKES A LOT MORE WORK TO GET YOURSELF INTO AN AFTER PARTY. THIS ONE IS MUCH SAFER FOR EVERYBODY INVOLVED. HOW'S IT GOING SO FAR?

> AWESOME!

> George: TALKING ABOUT SEEING LINKIN PARK LIVE?

> I ALMOST DIED!

> George: WHAT HAPPENED?

> I WAS CRUSHED BY THIS GUY.

> George: YOUR OWN FRIEND?

> FRONT ROW, UP AGAINST THE RAILING.

> George: NEVER FORGET THIS MOMENT.

> SWEATIEST I'VE EVER BEEN.

> CHINO SIGNED MY SHIRT.

> George: BEAUTIFUL! METALLICA ON THE WAY, THE ALMIGHTY METALLICA. WE'RE GOING TO GIVE LINKIN PARK A METALLICA QUIZ IN A SECOND AND SEE HOW THEY FAIR.

> CAN WE START THROWING CHAIRS IN THE AUDIENCE? (Laughing)

> FEELS LIKE WE'RE COMING OUT FOR A FIGHT OR SOMETHING. I FEEL LIKE HULK HOGAN.

> George: IT'S A LITTLE ATHLETIC. LOOK AT THIS KIND OF ENVIRONMENT. IS IT WHAT YOU ENVISIONED WHEN YOU WERE GETTING REJECTED BY ALL THE A&R GUYS?

> NO. THAT'S THE ONE-WORD ANSWER YOU LOVE WHEN YOU ASK A QUESTION.

> George: DID YOU EVER FEEL LIKE, "THIS ISN'T WORKING; THIS ISN'T GOING TO HIT"?

> NOT REALLY. WE WERE ALWAYS GOAL ORIENTED BUT WE WERE ALWAYS IN MUSIC FOR FUN AND IT WASN'T SOMETHING WE NECESSARILY LOOKED AT AS A JOB OR SOMETHING WE HAD TO DO. WE WANTED TO GO TO THE NEXT LEVEL BECAUSE WE ENJOYED PLAYING MUSIC. SO IT WASN'T REALLY PRESSURE. IT WAS A QUESTION OF CONTINUING TO DO WHAT WE LOVED TO DO.

> George: DID YOU SEE THE PEOPLE IN THE BAND CHANGE A BIT? HAVE PEOPLE CHANGED BECAUSE OF THE SUCCESS?

> IT'S A FUNNY JOKE, THE "YOU CHANGED" JOKE BECAUSE PEOPLE ALWAYS ASSUME YOU HAVE CHANGED. IF SOME GUY COME TOSS THE DRESSING ROOM AND GOES, "DUDE, MY FOOD ORDER IS WRONG," I'LL LOOK AT HIM AND GO, "DUDE, YOU HAVE CHANGED!"

> George: IT'S IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE EVERYBODY REMEMBERS WHERE THEY CAME FROM.

> EVERYONE HAS A NICE WAY OF REMINDING EVERYONE ABOUT THAT. SO WHAT'S GOING ON? METALLICA, ARE THEY COMING?

> George: LIMP BIZKIT DIDN'T SHOW UP. DID FRED SAY ANYTHING TO YOU BEFORE YOU LEFT?

> NO, I THOUGHT EVERYONE WAS COMING. THIS IS AN AWESOME AFTER PARTY YOU'RE THROWING.

> George: THIS IS WHAT THEY'RE ALL LIKE?

> THIS IS WHAT THEY'RE ALL LIKE.

> George: JOE, IS THAT WHAT ALL THE AFTER PARTIES ARE LIKE?

> ALL JUST LIKE THIS. FOUR CAMS RAH IN OUR FACE-- FOUR CAMERAS IN OUR FACE AT ALL THE AFTER PARTIES AND ALL THE PEOPLE LOOK PINK. WHY DO ALL THE PEOPLE LOOK PINK OUT THERE?

> George: THEY'RE GLOWING FOR YOU, JOE. THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

> THEY ALL DRANK PEPTO-BISMOL.

> George: THE ROCK 'N' ROLL BAND, DOES EVERYBODY HAVE THESE CLICHES...

> WHAT'S CHLOE SHAY?

> George: FOR EXAMPLE-- WHAT'S CLICHE?

> George: FOR EXAMPLE, CHAIRS OUT OF WINDOWS?

> YES, I BUY TVs SO I CAN THROW THEM OUT OF THE WINDOWS. I WOULD THROW CHESTER OUT OF A WINDOW BUT THERE'S NO WINDOWS AVAILABLE.

> George: EVERY TIME YOU DO SOMETHING ROCK STAR YOU LOOK AT EACH OTHER AND SAY, "YOU'VE CHANGED." WHO HAS CHANGED THE MOST IN THE BAND?

> I THINK IT'S JOE. HE'S NOT ONLY A ROCK STAR IN THE BAND BUT ALSO A REAL HOLLYWOOD TYPE BECAUSE HE'S A DIRECTOR AND USED TO HAVING A MEGAHORN AND USED TO RUNNING AROUND YELLING AT US ALL THE TIME. WE HAVE TO KICK HIM DOWN A COUPLE OF NOTCHES EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE.

> WHAT'S A MEGAHORN?

> THE BIG THINGS THAT MAKE LOTS OF SOUND--

> WHEN YOU GET REALLY EXCITED ABOUT SOMETHING...

> George: KEEP THE CAMERA UP! JESSICA HAS A QUESTION. WHERE'S JESSICA?

> SHE'S WAY OVER THERE.

> HI. I THOUGHT YOU GUYS WERE REALLY AWESOME TONIGHT. (Cheering) I WAS WONDERING, IN YOUR CAREER, WHAT WAS THE SCARIEST MOMENT YOU'VE HAD WITH A FAN?

> RIGHT NOW!

> RIGHT NOW, SERIOUS?

> (Laughing) NO, JUST TEASING! SOMEONE ASKED FOR CHESTER'S PUBIC HAIR ONCE.

> I WAS JUST GOING TO SAY THAT. I THINK THE MOST-- THE SCARIEST MOMENT WAS WHEN SOMEBODY CAME UP TO ME AND SAID, "HAYES," PULLING OUT A LITTLE JAR AND THEY SAID, "CAN YOU REACH IN YOUR PANTS AND PULL OUT A PUBIC HAIR AND PUT IT IN HERE BECAUSE I WANT TO TAKE YOUR D.N.A. AND CLONE YOU."

> THAT'S SCARY!

> PRETTY FRIGHTENING.

> THE FRIGHTENING THING IS THAT CHESTER WAS CLONED AND WE DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS REALLY HIM OR HIS CLONE.

> WHAT'S WAS SHE DOING WITH THE PUBIC HAIR?

> I SCRAPED GOO FROM THE INSIDE OF MY CHEEK AND GAVE IT TO HER.

> George: APPETIZING! THAT'S LOVELY. THAT'S WHAT IT IS, ISN'T IT? WHEN YOU WRITE SONGS-- YIKES! WHERE DID THIS ONE GO?

> OKAY, WAS THAT JOKE FUNNY OR NOT? FAN VOTE. RAISE YOUR HAND IF IT WAS FUNNY. RAISE YOUR HAND IF IT WASN'T FUNNY.

> George: I THINK WE'RE GETTING A CONSENSUS HERE.

> WE'RE GETTING A VOTE FROM THE CROWD THAT IT WASN'T FUNNY. SEE THAT?

> YOU WANT THIS ONE?

> HAYES, WHAT'S COOL ABOUT THE FACT THAT LIMP BIZKIT DIDN'T SHOW UP IS THE FACT THAT WE GET TO DO THIS TWICE. WHOO! (Cheering)

> George: THE GUYS FROM LINKIN PARK HAVE BEEN SWEET ENOUGH TO HANG AROUND AND FILL UNTIL METALLICA GETS HERE, WHICH SHOULD BE ANY MOMENT NOW. BUT WHEN YOU MAKE RECORDS AND PEOPLE BUY INTO THEM, YOU KIND OF BELONG TO THEM IN A WEIRD SORT OF WAY. YOU'RE PART OF THEIR MEMORIES.

> SOMEWHERE...

> George: HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT?

> SEE, THE LONGER THE INTERVIEW GOES, THE MORE THE QUALITY IS GOING TO DEGRADE... UNTIL WE'RE COMPLETELY UNINTELLIGIBLE.

> George: YOU NEED TO PICK UP THE SLACK, MAN! IF YOU WRITE PERSONAL LYRICS, TWO OF YOU, YOU HAVE TO BRING THEM TOGETHER TO BE UNIVERSAL, RIGHT?

> THE TRICK IS WRITING LYRICS THAT MEAN SOMETHING TO SOMEONE BESIDES YOURSELF. (Screaming from crowd) THANKS, DUDE. THAT WAS AWESOME. WE WRITE ABOUT EMOTIONS RATHER THAN SITUATIONS; YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAY SOMETHING WE HAVE FOUND THAT'S AN EASIER WAY TO COME TOGETHER LYRICALLY. IF WE'RE TALKING ABOUT SITUATIONS OR AN ENVIRONMENT KIND OF THING, YOU KNOW, WHAT I'VE EXPERIENCED IS GOING TO BE DIFFERENT FROM WHAT WE HAVE EXPERIENCED, AND WE CAN'T UNDERSTAND THAT, SO IF YOU TALK ABOUT THE EMOTIONS BEHIND THAT, IT WORKS OUT BETTER.

> IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE JUST THE FACT THAT THERE'S TWO OF US INHERENTLY MEANS THAT THING THAT WE WRITE IS KIND OF GOING TO SIT IN THE MIDDLE. IT HAS TO BE A LITTLE BIT MORE UNIVERSAL BECAUSE WE BOTH HAVE TO FEEL THAT. WE BOTH HAVE TO SING ABOUT IT EVERY NIGHT AND STILL FEEL LIKE THAT'S FROM US, YOU KNOW; THAT'S DEFINITELY HOW WE FELT ABOUT THAT SITUATION OR WHATEVER.

> I THOUGHT METALLICA WAS HERE, MAN.

> George: IT SOUNDED LIKE IT. WE'RE GOING TO TALK TO LINKIN PARK MORE IN A SECOND. LINKIN PARK ON THE MuchLoud SUMMER SANITARIUM TOUR.

> EVEN THE PEOPLE ARE COMING DOWN A LITTLE BIT. (Applause and cheering) (Applause and cheering)

> George: IN THE END, A LITTLE LINKIN PARK FOR YOU. THE MuchLoud SUMMER SANITARIUM TOUR. THEY HAVE PUT IN A YEOMAN'S JOB TONIGHT. THANKS FOR BEING PART OF THIS. THIS WAS GREAT!

> THANKS FOR HAVING US.

> THANKS FOR HAVING US.

> THANK YOU TO EVERYBODY OUT HERE. COME ON! (Applause and cheering)

> George: THIS ISN'T THE ONLY TIME THEY'RE GOING TO SEE YOU IN CANADA. YOU'RE COMING TO MONTREAL, RIGHT?

> SUMMER SANITARIUM, JULY 20th, MONTREAL. IF YOU'RE WATCHING AT HOME AND LIVE IN MONTREAL, COME CHECK OUT THE TOUR. EVERYONE HAS BEEN GREAT: MUDVAYNE, DEFTONES, LIMP BIZKIT AND METALLICA. WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO METALLICA FOR HAVING US PART OF THE TOUR.

> AND THANKS TO THE FANS. MAN, YOU GUYS ROCK!

> AND WE'LL BE PLAYING IN SEATTLE THE FIRST WEEK OF AUGUST.



> George: IF YOU'RE ON THE WEST COAST, MAKE YOUR WAY DOWN. EVERYBODY, IT'S LINKIN PARK! (Applause and cheering)

> George: THE MuchLoud SUMMER SANITARIUM AFTER PARTY WILL BE BACK LIVE AFTER THIS.
