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.
In this new audiobook, broadcaster and music writer Alan Cross narrates the definitive history of Linkin Park. Cross succeeds once again in revealing the fascinating history behind the music in the same compelling way we've come to expect from his long broadcasting career.
