In 2007, Yellowcard got a call asking if we were interested in touring Japan with @linkinpark. Our minds were blown to say the least. We were given the honor of sharing the stage with one of the most influential bands of our generation. In 2014, I got an email asking if I would like to be a part of a special @vanswarpedtour appearance with them. It was like an out of body experience. I remember just before the set @chesterbe could tell I was pretty nervous. He just threw his arm around me and said he knew I was going to kill it. Each of the few times I got to hang with him, he was such a positive and encouraging force. He always had a smile on his face. I know he struggled with a darkness inside of him, but I also know those smiles were real. He loved rock and roll. He loved his band. The space he has left behind in music will never be filled. Chester, I hope you can find some peace now, man. My thoughts are with your family. I'll be banging my head to your music for as long as my head will bang. Thank you for allowing me to step into your life, if even for a brief moment. I'll never forget it. #ripchester
