Two Friends Like Golf – level 2

04-02-2017 12:00

Linkin Park is an American band. It has sold over 68 million albums worldwide, and has won two Grammy Awards. This is YouTube’s Linkin Park song with the most views:

Dave “Phoenix” Farrell is the bassist of Linkin Park. In a video, he talks about a friend of his named Brendan Steele. Brendan Steele is a professional golfer. Dave and Brendan both live in Southern California, and they like playing golf together.

Dave loves watching and playing golf, and Brendan loves Linkin Park. He listens to its music and goes to the concerts. Dave and Brendan met backstage at one Linkin Park concert.

Difficult words: backstage (the area at a concert where only the band and their friends can go).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
