Blink’s Matt Skiba Rehearses For This Weekend’s Chester Bennington Tribute Show

blink-182/Alkaline Trio guitarist Matt Skiba just posted a video on his Insta that shows him learning parts to a Linkin Park track.

This weekend, Linkin Park and a whole load of other bands will pay tribute to the life of Chester Bennington, who committed suicide earlier this year. The night will bring together a ton of different performers and musicians who will play in memory of Chester, including the members of blink-182.

Matt Skiba just posted a video on his Insta that shows him learning parts to a Linkin Park track. Loudwire reckon the song he’s playing sounds like What I’ve Done, but maybe in a different key, with Skiba fiddling around trying to work out the exact way to play the riff.

The caption reads:

Learning some Linkin Park tunes with my guitar guru Danny Lohner for the upcoming event at Hollywood Bowl with Blink-182 and lots of other artists in honor and in loving memory of our buddy Chester.

blink-182 were due to perform gigs with Linkin Park as part of a bill titled Blinkin Park, but sadly Chester died a few days before those shows were due to start.
