Back in 2001, during Ozzfest, David Draiman of Disturbed invited the late Chester Bennington on stage to perform a cover of Pantera‘s “Walk.” A Pantera cover involving Disturbed and the late Linkin Park singer sounds like one hell of a combination – spoiler alert, it is pretty bad ass.

We wanted to share this video as a means of remembering Chester – today marks the five year anniversary since he passed away. He was an incredible light in this world who inspired and brought joy to millions. He was such a remarkable talent – a truly captivating artist.

Below you will find a lyric video that captures the audio recording of that Ozzfest performance involving Disturbed and Chester Bennington.

What do you think of Disturbed and Bennington’s cover of “Walk”?

In other Disturbed related news, the band just released a new single titled “Hey You.” Regarding this song, Draiman shared that “It’s a wake up call. We’ve become our own worst enemies. Civil discourse has become the exception instead of the norm. People have lost themselves in outrage addiction.”

If you are interested in checking out other covers performed by the late Chester Bennington, then you should look into the time that Linkin Park covered Deftones‘ “My Own Summer (Shove It).”

In Pantera related news, we recently shared a video from 2014 that features Phil Anselmo, Rex Brown, and Zakk Wylde performing together; we personally think that this video makes for a solid preview as to what the 2023 Pantera shows will be like. The Darkness singer, Justin Hawkins, also recently shared his two-cents regarding the upcoming tribute/reunion shows. Earlier this year, we conducted an interview with Phil Anselmo and debuted a HD remastered music video of the band’s song “Walk.”

How excited are you for the upcoming 2023 Pantera shows? Between several other musicians, and fans of course, there has been a great variety in opinions. Ex-Cannibal Corpse singer Chris Barnes and Avenged Sevenfold singer M. Shadows have shared their two-cents regarding the news, and many folks across the internet have expressed their opinions as well. Will you be seeing “Pantera” in 2023?
