This week I couldn't have chosen anything other than a Linkin Park track to share today. The soundtrack to my uni days featured their music regularly so the news this week of the death of Chester Bennington left me very sad. I know many deemed them not a cool band to love, but I never cared about that, I loved their sound and what they had to say mattered to me a whole lot. I saw them headline at Reading Festival back in 2003, while I was there with a group of friends we all did our own thing so I went on my own (some of the others were elsewhere in the crowd) and had such an amazing time – they were a highlight in a weekend that was full of so many musical highlights.
I often talk about music getting under my skin, those songs that seem to capture my heart most intensely. Of all the Linkin Park songs I love In the End is the one that absolutely got under my skin so it had to be my choice.
