Happy Birthday today (March 20) to Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington. He’s 41. Also celebrating is drummer Carl Palmer of Emerson, Lake and Palmer (67).

Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington was also frontman for Stone Temple Pilots from 2013-2015. The band formed out of Augora Hills, California and rose to fame in 2000 with the album Hybrid Theory through Warner Bros. Records. The album was a huge, commercial success selling over 10 million copies in the U.S. with singles like  “One Step Closer”, “Crawling”, and “In the End”. It’s one of the biggest selling albums of all time with worldwide sales of 27 million. The band followed that success up with the album Meteora which topped the Billboard 200 chart in 2003. Other albums include 2007’s Minute’s to Midnight, A Thousand Suns (2010), Living Things (2012), and The Hunting Party (2014). In 2014, UK rock magazine Kerrang declared Linkin Park, “The biggest band in the world right now.” You gotta agree with Kerrang. When you think about rock bands these days, Linkin Park is without a doubt the biggest one out there.

Linkin Park will release their long awaited new album One More Light on May 19 . For more on the band, check out their official website here.
