When Chester Bennington passed away, the music industry was impacted in a big way. His talent was seemingly endless, his encouragement to fans across the world helped inspire a generation, and he opened his heart – even when it hurt – to help those who were suffering the way that he was. If he could help it, he never allowed anyone to be alone in their darkness.
One of the lives he touched was that of Steve Aoki, an absolute legend in the music industry. His work with Chester and Linkin Park was incredible. In fact, he still plays the songs during his sets now. Chester was an idol to Steve, so getting to work with him was extremely important.
Now, after Chester’s death, Steve has found a way to show everyone how much Chester’s friendship meant to him and to show everyone what a talent Chester was through his eyes. He released a track called ‘Darker Than The Light That Never Bleeds’ and it is the best tribute we’ve heard so far.

Steve made another post on social media with kind words about him and an announcement that proceeds from the track will go towards Music for Relief’s One More Light Fund in honor of Chester.
