A performance by Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington on May 26th was unlike any other in his career. Chris Cornell, the leader of the rock band Soundgarden, was being laid to rest in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Bennington introduced himself to the grieving, saying, “My name is Chester.” “It was an honor to be Chris’ friend and to be allowed into his family.”
” He then sang “Hallelujah” with guitarist Brad Delson of Linkin Park. This was a departure for Bennington, who had made his name in the early 2000s as a screamer for one of the greatest bands in music, but that day he sounded melancholy, delicate, and vulnerable. Also on Twitter, he wrote that Cornell’s voice “brought me pleasure and agony, wrath and forgiveness, love and heartbreak all rolled up into one”. I assume we’re all like that. As a result of your advice, “I now comprehend it.”
