Paying their respects to the late Chris Cornell, Linkin Park took to Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night for a very special performance. Linkin Park was one of many band voicing their love and appreciation for the former Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman.
Lead singer Chester Bennington, who had a personal relationship with Cornell said this prior to the performance: “Thank you very much. We were gonna come out and play ‘Heavy’ first but in light of our dear friend Chris Cornell passing awa, we decided to play our song ‘One More Light’, in honor of him, to start this off. We love you Chris”
For the next track, the band elected to perform “Heavy”, a song off their new album One More Light, which is out today. To purchase the album, click here.
