Linkin Park Members Pay Tribute to Chester Bennington at 2017 AMAs

Linkin Park has won the favorite alternative rock artist award at the recent 2017 America Music Awards in Los Angeles and paid tribute to frontman Chester Bennington. Three members of the band were there to accept the award: co-founder and singer Mike Shinoda, drummer Rob Bourdon, and Guitarist Brad Delson.

Had an epic Instagram Story tonight—almost dodged security and made it through the show. Oh well. More importantly, thank you to the fans for this award. We love you too. #MakeChesterProud #TwoDudesWithNoSocialMedia @amas #amas2017

Chester Bennington Filmed Carpool Karaoke With Mike Shinoda, Joe Hahn 6 Days Before Suicide

With the blessing of his family, Carpool Karaoke has released an episode featuring the late Chester Bennington with bandmates Mike Shinoda, Joe Hahn, and comedian Ken Jeong. The video was filmed on July 14, 2017 — less than a week before the lead singer of Linkin Park sadly took his own life on July 20.

The celebrities sang various Linkin Park hits with questions from Jeong interspersed throughout the video, beginning with Jeong asking if Bennington could teach him how to “scring”, or “scream-sing”. Jeong surprised the band by actually doing it fairly well; Bennington seemed very pleased as he laughed and joked along with the group.
