I spent ten years playing classical piano, and that was what led to keyboards and eventually to production and to Linkin Park.

Right now, when it comes to making an album, we really want to give our fans just Linkin Park. We don't want to water it down with anything else or confuse it with anything else. Meteora is just us and that's where our focus has been. So hopefully the fans can enjoy that.
