“We all lost somebody today,” a clearly heartbroken Corey told the crowd at Stone Sour’s Massachusetts gig on Thursday night, after learning of Bennington’s passing.
His voice cracking with sadness, CT continued: “I lost a friend… and this was one of his favourite songs. And I wanna dedicate to him. Chester, we will fucking miss you.”
He then kicked into a powerful performance of the Come What(ever) May cut as the crowd sang along en masse. You can watch fan-shot footage below but maybe keep a box of tissues handy because fuck knows this song can turn us into emotional wrecks at the best of times.
