When Mike Shinoda was in high school, he wanted to form a band. He was next door neighbors with one of the members from the band. A couple of years later, they decided they were gonna get serious about the music bussiness. Mike needed help with the vocalist part. So they called Chester Bennington. Mike and the band, put their songs on the internet, and went in chat zones. They would ask the people in the chat zones, to hear the music, and to tell them what they tought about it. After a while, they got signed to Warner bros. records. Their risk, turned out to be good success!
