According to Rolling Stone, Chester Bennington’s family will decide if the band Linkin Park’s episode of the new Apple Music spin-off Carpool Karaoke: The Series will air or not. The Carpool Karaoke segment is getting its own show on Apple Music after being an extremely popular part of James Corden’s show with appearances from Adele, Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, Bruno Mars, and more.
Host James Corden said the show will “approach it in whichever manner his family, or the people [who] were involved in that episode, would like it to be handled.” He also added that the show’s crew “haven’t even thought about considering their next move”. “We consider it not our decision to make,” he said. “We will navigate it as delicately as possible and just adhere to whatever wishes they would want.”
Chester Bennington took his own life on July 20th at age 41. Prior to his death, the singer and his band filmed an installment of the new show, a web series spin-off of Corden’s popular Late Late Show segment.
The singer’s widow, Talinda Bennington, tweeted a “thank you” to the show early Wednesday morning.
