The wound from Chester Bennington’s passing is still fresh. About two weeks ago, the amazing Linkin Park frontman took his own life and left the world in shock. The 41 year old left us, but his amazing voice and music will live on forever.
Since his sudden passing, many artists have joined the tribute train and have been paying homage to Chester with covers, letters and kind words. Recently, Chris Martin from Coldplay joined in on the tributes, and played a beautiful stripped-down piano cover of Linkin Park’s smash hit “Crawling” at Coldplay’s show in New York. Chris’ version of the song is a lot more mellow than the original that Linkin Park was known for. He substitutes the screaming for a more melodic tone, and although his voice may never match Chester’s, we know Chester is definitely smiling down on him for this.
