LP Underground member Eddie F. from West Palm Beach, FL won an LPU giveaway a few weeks back. His prize was a phone call from Mike Shinoda. Here's what Eddie had to say after the call:

I just had the great honor and privilege of being able to talk with Mike Shinoda. I was so excited when I found out that I had won the contest to receive a call from Mike. It's pretty surreal to receive a phone call and the other person say "Hi, it's Mike Shinoda." Being able to talk with someone you admire is something that not everyone is always able to do and I am fortunate enough to have done just that. I had a great conversation with Mike. He asked me about myself, then we talked about some of his musical influences, his favorite places to tour, and even heard a funny story about Joe from when they were in college. Mike's a really down to earth guy and a genuinely great person. This whole experience was a dream come true.

Thank you so much Mike. You're the best.

Wow, your a very very lucky person, Eddie. My wish is just to see them, particularly Mike, singing in a concert, but having a conversation with him is so perfect and sensationally empyrean. You're very blessed for having that unfathomable chance of talking with Mike. Congrats Man :) :D ;)

I would die right next to the phone if M Shinoda called me.

Congratulations to Eddie!

It's kinda strange, if you can make somebody happy, when you just give him a phone call. In 'normal' live, everybody would say: I won? Yeah, send me the phone itself! But Mike make that dude happy, when he just pay attention to him. LP fans really appreciate the band!!!
