Prior to performing his song “Glass House,” Machine Gun Kelly talked about Chester being a “great human being” and how Bennington took him in.
Machine Gun Kelly goes on to add that he and Linkin Park were meant to go out on the road together, but then Chester died. Mentioning this then leads MGK to share the following:
“The last time I saw him was here in Europe, so I encourage you, because life is short, to go live this life. I know it’s hard, man. I know this shit is fucking hard. But nights like tonight make life worth it.”
This is a very touching move on Machine Gun Kelly’s part. Chester Bennington touched a lot of lives through his art and the metal/rock community has not been the same without him. We love and miss you everyday Chester and hope that you are at peace.
You can check out footage of Machine Gun Kelly paying tribute to the late Chester Bennington during a live show below. In other news related to Machine Gun Kelly, some months ago, he reflected on his past beef with that of Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor.
Among the comments he made, Machine Gun Kelly shared, “It’s funny, the whole Slipknot issue (which really isn’t a Slipknot issue, it’s a Corey issue). That situation’s unfortunate because I think both of us let our egos get in the way.”
Back in July, we shared a special video that features the late Linkin Park singer and that of late Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell performing together. The two artists were very close friends, and in 2008, they took the stage together to perform a song.
