Jukebox: When Chester Bennington Gave Us Unforgettable Covers
Chester Bennington would’ve celebrated his 42nd birthday on 20 March. His legacy lives on through his music even today. After the fateful day on 20 July 2017 when he was pronounced dead, the music industry gave some incredible tributes to the Numb singer. From Chris Martin’s Crawling rendition to Imagine Dragons‘ Rise, the tributes continue to pour in.
Only fitting, because whenever Chester performed on stage or collaborated with fellow artistes at live shows, he gave us some unforgettable covers and beautiful tributes himself. Here’s a jukebox of Chester belting out hits ‘more like him, and less like the original’.
Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah
Adele’s Rolling In The Deep
The Stone Temple Pilots’s Creep
AC/DC’s Highway To Hell
Guns N' Roses‘ Sweet Child O' Mine
The Doors‘ Riders On The Storm
Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love
Fort Minor’s Where’d You Go
Nine Inch Nails‘ Wish
Rest in Peace, Chester Bennington. Gone, but never forgotten.
