Machine Head’s Robb Flynn reveals cover of Linkin Park’s “In The End”

Remembering late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington on the third anniversary of his unfortunate passing, Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn has unearthed a live video cover of the Linkin Park classic track, “In The End.”

Robb said:

3 years ago we performed this song at my birthday bash after learning of Chester’s horrible death only a couple of days before. We were shocked and saddened, and I think most of us were still recovering from Chris Cornell’s sudden and tragic death, when this came along and hit us like a ton of bricks.

I know people are gonna pooh pooh this, but I don’t give a shit. I love Linkin Park, I saw them before the first record even dropped opening for Orgy at the Maritime hall. I saw them almost every time they came to the Bay Area, and they always put on a fantastic fucking show.

Played numerous festivals with them, saw them in Paris France doing promotion for the blackening, and I saw them again in Belarus well getting ready to tour for bloodstone and diamonds. I know Chester‘s passing was yesterday, but it seemed appropriate to share this heartfelt cover. Shout out to J-Mac for bringing it on the chorus. #linkinpark #chesterbennington
