Brad_Delson’s Biography

Brad Delson attended Agoura High School childhood friend and bandmate Linkin Park, Mike Shinoda. He played in several bands throughout his high school career, the most notable being relative, in which he met and teamed up with drummer Rob Bourdon. Relative Degree was simply a concert and, after reaching that goal, it was disbanded. After graduating in 1995, Delson, Shinoda, and Bourdon formed Xero, which would eventually become the starting point for Linkin Park. Delson joined UCLA in 1995 as a Regent Fellow working towards a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences, with a specialization in Business and Administration. He was a member of Phi Beta Kappa, and shared a bedroom with future bandmate Linkin Park, Dave Farrell in three of his four years in school, Farrell showed him how to play bass, and he also learned how to play bass. Delson also had the opportunity to do an internship with a member of the music industry as part of his studies and ended up working for Jeff Blue, a representative of A & amp; R of Warner Bros. Records, which offers constructive criticism in the Xero demos. Blue later introduced Chester Bennington, who would become the vocalist of Linkin Park, with the rest of the band. After graduating in 1999, Delson decided to resign from law school in order to pursue a musical career with Linkin Park, he is still a big fan of all things blue and gold. Brad is of Jewish descent.

Linkin Park

In 1999, Delson’s band, Xero, replaced former Mark Wakefield frontman with Arizona native Chester Bennington and changed his name to Linkin Park. In a short time, Delson, along with Shinoda, had produced the six-track Hybrid Theory (EP), distributing it to various online websites and earning cult from his own band. In the year 2000, after a change plus name of the band, Linkin Park was signed by Warner Bros. Records. On October 24, 2000, Linkin Park launched the overwhelming success: Hybrid Theory. Over the next year, Delson helped produce the remix album “Reanimation” (2002), and added his own creative vision in the remixed rendition of “Pushing Me Away” (“P5hng Me A * wy”). After Reanimation, Delson played a key role in the production of Linkin Park’s second studio album, Meteora (2003), which featured heavier guitar riffs than those of Hybrid Theory.

Linkin Park released their third studio album of Minutes to Midnight on May 15, 2007 in the United States. For this album, the band deviated from the nu metal style they had perfected in Hybrid Theory and Meteora, and developed a completely new sound. For Delson, this means experimenting with different guitars and amplifiers, both new and old. It also meant that he had to put aside his distaste for guitar solos, which are featured in songs like Shadow of the Day, What I’s Done, “In Pieces” and “The Little Things Give You Away”.

While the band reconstructed the song “The Little Things Give You Away,” Delson experimented with an E-Bow, creating a song called “E-Bow Idea,” which was later changed to No More Sorrow. Listeners can also hear him clinking his keys in Given Up, an idea attributed to him in the album’s booklet, as well as the multiple tracks of clapping hands. He has also played the piano in some of the live shows in the song Hands Held High.

Brad also added his own creative vision in New Divide, the song composed by Linkin Park for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – The Album in 2009. It was also the last single of the band before they took separate paths, far of his projects to compose music for his next album – A Thousand Suns.

Normally, Delson is usually seen live with a pair of large headphones, which are designed by Shinoda and change with each release. On the album Road to revolution: Live at Milton Keynes he says that the headphones allow him to enter the matrix and that if he does not use them he would not be in complete synchronization with the band.
