I remember sitting at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto in 2011 during the A Thousand Suns tour while Chester sang Happy Birthday to their bassist Dave “Phoenix” Farrell. It’s frankly my favourite song from the night. You can watch someone’s video of it HERE, and you just get this vibe that Chester was such a stand up guy. It was fucking beautiful and totally random.
I know a lot of people have similar memories, and over the weekend, I came across this post from Imgur user Rjag884, who posted a comment he found on YouTube and it’s Chester in a bottle.
This is who the world lost, and it’s a tragedy of the greatest degree.
