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.

Brad Delson on Linkin Park’s New Album: ‘There’s a Lot of Guitar Solos’

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.
