Chad Childers

Chad Childers has been a music lover since his parents dragged him along to an Aerosmith/Bachman Turner Overdrive show as an infant. His love of music turned into a career in the mid-90s when he left a job in the Midwest as a librarian and moved to California to intern for Westwood One Radio. That led to work researching for Casey Kasem's countdown shows, writing and producing the alternative and active rock-related prep services SpinFax, The Fax, and Rip, Read and Rock as well as doing interviews across all music and entertainment formats.

Linkin Park have never been your traditional act. Start by having two vocalists -- one a powerful belter while the other comes from a hip-hop background. Add in a DJ/programmer, and then layer that on top of the traditional guitar, bass and drums. That gives them plenty of space to experiment. But with a new album en route and the guitar heavy 'Guilty All the Same' just hitting the airwaves, it's not a reach to suggest we may be hearing more guitar than ever from the band.
