WATCH: Chester Bennington’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ episode shot before his death
Six days before the unexpected death of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, the band filmed an episode of Apple Music’s famed “Carpool Karaoke” segment.
Almost three months after the tragedy struck, the band released the footage on its official Facebook page, alongside comedian Ken Jeong.
“With the blessing of Chester’s family and his bandmates, we share this episode, and dedicate it to the memory of Chester,” a message at the beginning of the video read.
Last month, Chester’s widow, Talinda, shared that the rock legend displayed no signs of depression and was living a normal and happy life with his loved ones.
The 41-year-old carried the same blissful attitude in the 23-minute video, even claiming that it was “probably the greatest day of my life.”
Bennington sat in front with “The Hangover” star and exchanged laughs, while band mates Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn rode at the back.
The group went on to belt out tunes from Outkast’s “Hey Ya!” and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Under the Bridge,” as well as the band’s own classics like “In the End” and “Numb.”
As of this writing, the Facebook clip has been viewed over 4 million times. /ra
