LINKIN PARK - Guitarist: 'There Is No Negotiation' With WARNER MUSIC GROUP

Hits Daily Double reports: LINKIN PARK guitarist and spokesman Brad Delson offered several revelations to The New York Times' Jeff Leeds in the reporter's assessment of last week's announcement that the band wanted off wanted out of their contract with Warner Music Group, starting with the fact that WMG had asked the band to play at the New York Stock Exchange to celebrate the company's IPO. That request, said Delson, "just exemplifies how out of touch the ownership of the Warner Music Group is with our band. It doesn't make any sense to us why we would play a show at the New York Stock Exchange. I don't know what was going through their minds."

Delson told Leeds that the band’s demand to get out of its deal is a matter of principle, characterizing the IPO as "bad news, and that's why we don't want to stick around and see what happens. There is no negotiation taking place. We want off the Warner Music Group." When Leeds, alluding to the theory that LINKIN PARK's move was a negotiating ploy, asked Delson if a fat check would settle things, he responded, "Unfortunately, we're past that point." Delson explained that the band was concerned about WMG's ability to promote its acts in the wake of deep staff cuts, even as the investors are "sucking out the cash and putting it into their own pockets."
