Almost twenty years ago I was introduced to the live music taping community through my love of the band Linkin Park. I'd spend hours on dial up internet collecting and swapping recordings of shows with other fans all around the world. I gained so much enjoyment from these recordings that I wanted to give back to the taping community and the fans, so in 2010 I launched BNE Live. It ran sucessfully for three years, with tens of thousands of downloads, artist recognition and even national radio play before I decided to shut the project down and called it a day.
Sadly on the 20th of July 2017 the lead singer of Linkin Park, Chester Bennington passed away. While I'm still grieving the loss of Chester, his death brought back so many memories of those early days trading recordings, contributing to LPLive.net and engaging in such a wonderful community. These memories reminded me of why I started BNE Live in the first place and after looking at the old website I realised the majority of the download links are all down now. I've decided to relaunch BNE Live and upload all the recordings I've made in the hopes that other fans of live music can share some of the joy I have experienced over the years listening to recordings just like these.
This one is for you Chester.
