A last glimpse at the late Linkin Park singer.
Posted on Linkin Park’s Facebook page, a note toward the start of the video stated: “With the gift of Chester’s family and his bandmates we share this scene and commit it to the memory of Chester”.
Bennington, 41, recorded the video on 14 July – six days before he committed suicide at his home in Palos Verdes, California. He was recorded driving around Los Angeles singing along to a few distinct tunes including the band’s own hits. Towards the end of the film, which additionally includes Jeong meeting the band about their music, the gathering gets into a limousine where they sing “Sweet Home Alabama” by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Messages poured in from fans from around the world upon the release of the video.
Chester Bennington’s Carpool Karaoke is heartbreaking. He seemed like he was so happy, having a laugh just days before he ended it all…
