Adjust Comment Print

Three months after frontman and Valley-native Chester Bennington died by suicide, Linkin Park and other musicians will hold a memorial concert tonight at Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California. Metallica, Paul McCartney, Guns N' Roses' Duff McKagan and Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan all presented video messages.

He called it "Glimpse 1" into how a song is made (fans will be able to track the tune's progress on the band's social channels).

He also answered one of the main questions of this night: Where would Linkin Park go from here?

"I don't know what's gonna happen with this song", he said.


Chester Bennington was remembered in a big, emotional way Friday night at the Hollywood Bowl.

Bennington and the rest of Linkin Park began the charity Music for Relief following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, and the One More Light Fund was established after Bennington's death. And the second part will be sent to the family trust company Chester and Talinda Bennington Family Trust.

"I don't have the words", Shinoda can be heard saying as he greets the sold-out audience of Linkin Park fans at the beginning of the show.

Throughout the show, Linkin Park played old videos of Bennington, showing his sense of humor and passion for music.
