Song of the Day: Linkin Park – “Wish” (Live)

Today marks the birthday of late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, who would have turned 42 this year. Bennington’s death for me was a “Where were you when” moment I’ll never forget as I was traveling through Maine to the Canada border driving through some amazingly gorgeous scenery when I pulled over to have a late lunch at about 2:30 p.m. Myself and the bartender were the only ones in the restaurant when a young woman ran in, somewhat beside herself and in tears, announcing that Bennington had killed himself. Kind of left us at a loss for words. This performance comes from the Rock A.M Ring show in Germany in 2004, and it’s a well-done cover that matches the intensity of the original. Bennington definitely owns this one.
