Linkin Park has shared a throwback video of Chester Bennington on what would’ve been the late vocalist’s 47th birthday.

The clip, posted to LP’s Twitter, compiles footage of Bennington having fun on the road and backstage, as well as from past birthday celebrations.

“Happy Birthday @ChesterBe,” the caption reads, along with a heart emoji.

Bennington was born March 20, 1976. He passed away in July 2017 at age 41.

Fittingly for Bennington’s birthday, the newly unearthed Linkin Park single “Lost” is currently the #1 single on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock and Alternative Airplay charts. The track, which features lead vocals by Bennington, was originally recorded during the sessions for LP’s 2003 sophomore album, Meteora, and will be included in the upcoming 20th anniversary Meteora reissue, due out April 7.
