    What we need:
    - Guitarist (Chris(tmas), RukiaTH
    - Drummer
    - Bassist (Derek)
    - DJ (?)
    - Singer/rapper (Napalm Terror)
    - Piano/Synth/Strings (Passport)
    - Someone who’s good with editing videos. (Joseph)

    I know there a couple musicians in here that play guitar, bass or the drums. So here’s the idea. You record with your camera a Linkin Park song. You upload the video to megaupload (or whatever you like) and you send it to the editing guy. The editing guy merges the 4 (or how many there are) videos together in one video and voila, there’s the LPA Cover Band. It has been tried a couple years ago but it didn’t work out. Now with the new technology of YouTube, I think this could turn into something real fun and cool, maybe even promoting the LPA.

    Everyone can be the guitarist or drummer. Someone would be like “I want to cover One Step Closer, anyone who wants to drum to it?” and the next person would go like “I wanna do Given Up, anyone?”

    Now I’m not really into that video editing stuff, so if there’s someone out here who can help, I’d really appreciate it.

    If you still don't know what the fuck I'm talking about, check out this example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrHBnKmyLkA&fmt=18

    good idea - I hope this comes off! I'd love to see the end result!!

    I've got to be honest though, I'm not a musician nor even dare to pull off the vocals needed to 'cover' and LP song.. and to top it all off I wouldn't even know where to start with video editing! I'm guna have to rule myself out of this project I'm afraid.

    Completely down for being the bassist. I have a (semi)studio way of recording the bass tracks, and an HD video camera. Love this idea!

    I rap, so if you guys choose to cover a song with Mike on it, I guess I could do his parts.

    Hell, we could even do it with a female vocalist!

    I don't have much free time on my hands but there's gotta be a tutorial somewhere on the net "How to make youtube videos". It would be even way cooler when the musicians show a LPA sign right before the music starts. So when people are looking for Linkin Park covers, they see the sign and will hopefully check this site out.

    @ Derek and Napalm Terror: AWESOME! :D I'm so excited lol.

    You can even do it with more than one guitarists, drummers, singers, etc. on one song, you know, like when all those famous musicians gather to cover a song :)

    Well, we need 2 guitarplayers for sure. I play the guitar so I'm down for quite a few songs

    I think that Derek is the only one who plays the bass so... you got the main role :lol:

    I know Astat can play bass, not sure if he actually has one that's his though.

    I can send Gigascythe a PM and see if hes interested.
