Alan Cross traces the origins of Linkin Park to a time when "rock was dead" and pop music, rap, and hip hop ruled the charts. The California band - one of the top-selling rock bands of the 21st Century - emerged from a nu metal and rap metal background and pioneered an innovative sound, adding its own electronic flourishes.
Canadian writer and broadcaster Cross has decades of experience in radio, and his expertise as a disc jockey shows in his delivery of this edition of Alan Cross Guide to Alternative Rock. He packs the 20-minute artist profile with enlightening information that will interest music buffs and newcomers alike, but his delivery is so well metered that a listener doesn't notice the pace.
Rock on: listen to another Alan Cross Guide.
