Linkin Park singer in posthumous Carpool Karaoke show
From BBC - October 12, 2017

An episode of Carpool Karaoke starring Linkin Park - recorded less than a week before lead singer Chester Bennington killed himself - has been released.

The 23-minute episode is being streamed for free on Facebook with the permission of Bennington's family.

It was filmed for Apple Music on 14 July this year - six days before his body was found at a private home in LA County on 20 July.

The coroner ruled that Bennington, 41, had apparently hanged himself.

The episode sees Bennington, along with band mates Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn, driving around Los Angeles with US comedian Ken Jeong and singing along to their hits, including Numb, In The End and Talking To Myself.

It also sees a smiling Bennington join in with renditions of songs by Aerosmith, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

The singer jokes with Jeong that the comedian should "join the band", saying: "Finally we have some leadership!"

He also revealed a love for Dungeons and Dragons, and that his trademark scream was created early on in the band's career.
