Given the recent and untimely death of Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington, a lot of people have been feeling a mixture of sadness and nostalgia lately. There’s no doubt that the band has touched countless lives over their run and the loss has been felt profoundly across the music community.

It took place almost exactly 17 years ago in Phoenix, Arizona at the Mason Jar.
