In The End. If you’ve heard any Linkin Park song, it’s that one. Chester Bennington sings about nothing really mattering. But if that’s how he truly felt in the end, he was wrong. Chester may be gone, but his music still speaks for him. In the end, he never stopped. And neither does his story.

    Eva Cassidy

    27:04

    It’s all back to front, with Eva. The radio only notices when she’s gone. You hear her and she’s not there to explain why she sings like this, what’s formed her. The love comes after the death. And that’s how the story of Eva Cassidy has to be told, the only way it makes sense. We start at the end, and we work backwards.

    Marc Bolan was the elfin prince of glam rock. He was bard of the British underground, spinning fairy fantasies of other worlds with made up words, an acoustic guitar and a set of bongos. This is the story of how he lived fast, but died young. And is forever fixed in the public imagination as a sexy, swaggering, glam rocking icon.
