Chester Bennington’s Son Records With Father’s Early Band Grey Daze

Before Chester Bennington was the frontman for Linkin Park, he fronted the Arizona based post-grunge band Grey Daze. Bennington’s former bandmates have announced plans to re-record their old material with Bennington’s friends and family, including his 22-year-old son Jamie.

Grey Daze recently shared a picture of Jaime in the recording studio on Facebook with the captain:

“Chester would have been so very proud of his son Jaime Bennington. We had Jamie sing along with his father last night at NRG Recording studios and his voice is great! Sounds a lot like his father and we were all very proud to be a part of it.”

Other guests expected to appear on the album include Korn guitarists Brian “Head” Welch and James “Munky” Shaffer, Bush’s Chris Trainor and P.O.D.’s Marcos Curiel. 

A couple of days after posting about Jaime’s contributions, Grey Daze shared a video of Brian “Head” Welch working out a tune in the studio, as well.

The upcoming LP won’t be Jaime Bennington’s first musical outing. In 2017, about a month after Chester passed away, Jamie released an EP of piano-based compositions. Chester’s widow, Talinda remarked that Jamie is “as talented as his father.”
