The Brilliance of A&R People: Linkin Park Rejected By Labels 50 Times

(Contact Music) LINKIN PARK frontman CHESTER BENNINGTON was determined not give up on the band - even when they were rejected by record labels over 50 times. The singer lead the group, then known as Hybrid Theory, into numerous showcase gigs for label executives and were turned every time.

The rockers were eventually signed to the Warner Brothers label in 2000 and Bennington, 31, insists he is glad he didn't give up on his musical dream.

He says, "We played over 50 showcases for label guys and we got turned down multiple times. It was tough." [While we're not huge LP fans here, no one can deny their success. Just think of how many other bands that could be huge are getting turned down by these brilliant A&R people! Maybe the R stands for retarded? Remember the Beatles were turned down by all the majors at least two times each. Oops] - More from Chester on this
