In the evening of July 20th 2017, the day that Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington was tragically found dead as a result of suicide by hanging, Staind frontman Aaron Lewis performed a solo show at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom in Hampton, New Hampshire.
During his set, Lewis dedicated the song ‘Something To Remind You’ to the late vocalist and his friend, and preceded the song by saying, “I lost a really good friend today. I’m not really sure why he chose to take his own life, but it’s been a really sad day. So, this next song is for Chester.”
Lewis featured as a guest vocalist on the song ‘Krwlng’, a reimagined take of the song ‘Crawling’ that featured on Linkin Park‘s 2002 remix album, ‘Reanimation’ (You can listen to it here).
