It's a dark day for Pink Floyd traders. Linkin Park should get their own ideas elsewhere and try not to take something good and totally f*** with it and make it sound worse.

Never heard of Linkin Park, so i don't mind if they try to sound like Pink Floyd. Nothing can beat the real thing!

It reminds me of what Slipknot have declared about their third album. They said they took influence from Pink Floyd too....
I listened to this album (Slipknot : Vol. 3 : The Subliminal Verses), and on 2 or 3 tracks, I gotta admit that they're right !
There were something very floydian in these songs... For example, one of their riff reminds me of Welcome to the Machine, and some vocals harmonies sounded like the ones in The Wall...

Very strange !

So, Linkin Park influenced by Pink Floyd... why not ?
I don't listen to their music anyway ! I'm not 14, I'm 25 !! :D

I know one thing......50 years from now bands will still be listening to Pink Floyd for ideas and inspiration and no one will remember Linkin Park!

Yep.


I kinda think all of you are taking it too seriously, though. I found the article to be hilarious. These guys are desperate. They're trying to cash in on the success of Tool and Mars Volta by "going prog." They're desperate.

The comments are as..... disturbing as the article itself. But then, to expect any different would be naive.

I agree, these comments are quite amusing. :D It's true that no one will remember this band in 50 years.

Truth is, just about every band, no matter their status (professional or amateur)
will say they have influences in either PF or The Beatles or The Rolling Stones, etc., etc. I think it's a bit misleading though. I'm sorry, Dave Matthews says he was influenced by The Beatles... I don't hear it... maybe The Cure, as both have whiney voices (LOL), but the fact of the matter is that the bands previously mentioned virtually CREATED this thing we call rock and roll. How could they not influence other groups, though this influence may be quite indirect.

Usually though, being a bass player and playing in several cover bands and such, the music you originally write is USUALLY directly influenced to the music in your CD player. When I was really getting into old Genesis (Selling England by the Pound) I ended up writing this long elaborate and progressive sounding song w/ many changes that were really just variations of the main riff. Now, I've drifted toward jam bands such as Grateful Dead and Widespread Panic, and the songs I'm writing are very loose w/ lots of room for improvisation aka 'noodling'. I think it was Derek Trucks who said (not word for word) it's important that the music you listen to is top notch (whatever top notch is, I think we, in this community have an idea and are open enough to realize that in just about every genre, there is good music, even if it's not a genre you prefer). No matter how much of a variety in music you listen to, if it's no good, it's still gonna sneak into your own creativity.
