Papa Roach Offer ‘In the End’ Onstage Salute to Chester Bennington
Since Chester Bennington's death in July, many of his peers have found ways to honor the singer's memory both onstage and offstage and that continued this past week in Vienna, Austria with Papa Roach paying homage to Bennington.
In the midst of the band's song "Forever," Jacoby Shaddix and his crew segued into a bit of Linkin Park's "In the End," having the crowd join in the singing of the popular Linkin Park song as well. It was a fitting choice of song to tie in, as "Forever" includes the lyric, "Days come and go but my feelings for you are forever." The band made a seamless transition, with Shaddix having a few words about Bennington and a plea to the audience.
"We love you Chester Bennington, rest in peace," said Shaddix at the end of the song, adding, "We scream for you." The singer then concluded, "If there's anybody in the house tonight who is walking through some darkness, please don't be afraid to put your f--king hand out and go, 'Yo, I need some f--king help.' It takes courage, you know what I'm saying? But you guys, every last one of you guys are worth this life."
