    - After the ninth song Chester commented: "That was a world premiere. This song has never been played before, except a couple of small times. It's not even named yet". According to Sean Dowdell, the song's actual title is 'Forever'.

    - The file with a recording of this show didn't have the date specified, but we had a clue to figure it out. On the recording Chester mentions that their brand new album No Sun Today is getting released "tonight". According to Chester's speech from a recording of another Electric Ballroom show No Sun Today was released on May 23rd, 1997. We happened to have a show on this date in the guide before we got our hands on the recording, so, for the time being, we can assume the date is correct.

    - During the show Chester mentions it is called "Best Of Phoenix 2" and thanks all of the other local bands that played before Grey Daze. The gig's headliner Puzzle Gut isn't a local band though, so we just assume they were the special guests for the event and it featured a lot of bands that weren't listed in the newspaper ad we have (see below).

    - Grey Daze were the resident band for Electric Ballroom and played a huge number of shows there during the years of its existence.

    - The band performed at Guitar Center's Grand Opening event. The concert was held outside the store on a dirt field (there were no buildings around at the time).

    - The setlist is unknown, but the band reportedly performed some of the songs several times, probably because the crowd was changing as huge lines of people were walking in to the store.

    - The Guitar Center in Phoenix was opened in 1997, then closed, then reopened a few years later on a different spot of the same building. LPLive contacted several people at Guitar Center to ask about the exact date the store was first opened, but the only info they have is the opening date for that second location.

    - A recording of this rehearsal was obtained from Jonathan Krause by LPLive and released along with "Grey Daze Story" in October, 2015. According to Jonathan, the band practiced at McDowell Studios in Phoenix at the time and assumes it was the place it was recorded at.

    - On the recording, we can hear the band performing four songs in jamming form with 'Come On' and 'Smoke Mouth' being less developed comparing to the other two that sound nearly identical to their other known recordings.

    - Before 'Wake Me', Chester also jokingly rehearsed his introduction of the other band members (Jonathan, Steve, Sean), thus confirming Steve Mitchell was still in the band which means it was recorded sometime in the first few months of 1994.

    - The band's manager Kerry Rose: "We did a small tour into Southern California, including a fantastic show at the Whiskey a Go Go on the Sunset Strip. Although we had other record companies looking at us, nobody came forward. After that tour, the band was at a crossroads. It really didn't seem like continuing forward made sense unless we could move to the next level." [...] "It's a fantastic - very famous venue, and they have a killer sound system. There was 3-400 people at the show and they really got into the band. When they did "Anything, Anything", the place went nuts. The sound guy thought it was better than the original version. I just remember it being a particularly good show".

    - Sometime in the second half of 1998, shortly after the tour to Southern California, the band members separated their ways. Grey Daze's manager Kerry Rose: "We did a small tour into Southern California, including a fantastic show at the Whiskey a Go Go on the Sunset Strip. Although we had other record companies looking at us, nobody came forward. After that tour, the band was at a crossroads. It really didn't seem like continuing forward made sense unless we could move to the next level. I had invested over $10,000 in the band". The overall frustration over the band's limited success has led to more personal conflicts between the band members, so Chester and Mace Beyers decided to leave the band. However, Sean Dowdell and Bobby Benish decided to keep it going and added a female singer Jodi Wendt and bassist Dave Sardegna to the band. The band did a few shows under the name Grey Daze, but soon after they changed their name to Waterface with all original material written by the new lineup.

    - Some of the later local concert ads list Fuel, Agnes Gooch and The Living Seed as the performers on this date, so it's possible that Grey Daze's appearance was eventually cancelled, unless the addition of The Living Seed had caused Grey Daze to just move one slot lower on the bill and they just weren't listed.

    - The band's bassist Mace Beyers remembers this show as the very last show the band ever played (which may be not entirely correct) and cites it as one of the reasons Chester was later asked to join Hybrid Theory.

    - The band's manager Kerry Rose: "We did a small tour into Southern California, including a fantastic show at the Whiskey a Go Go on the Sunset Strip. Although we had other record companies looking at us, nobody came forward. After that tour, the band was at a crossroads. It really didn't seem like continuing forward made sense unless we could move to the next level." [...] "There were some label guys at the Teaszer show that our attorney invited. The Whiskey show was a better show. None of the label guys bit, although the feedback on Chester was very positive".

    Comments: Obtained from Jonathan Krause by LPLive and released as an exclusive on July, 2015. At the beginning of recording, you can hear crowd noise before "Painted", then a glitch takes you right to the middle of the song. 'Wake Me' is abrupted with glitches and the recording jumps to the ending of 'What's In The Eye?'. The ending of 'How Would You Be' is cut. The tracklist of this recording is believed to be the full setlist, but it is still possible that more songs were played.

    - This was the band's first public show ever. The line up for this incarnation of the band was: Chester Bennington (vocals), Sean Dowdell (drums), Steve Mitchell (guitar) and Jonathan Krause (bass). Confirmed by Chester's introduction during the show.

    - This is the only known performance of the songs called 'The Endless Highway' and 'How Would You Be' and the very first time we found out of their existence.

    - Since it was such an early show and featured a different guitarist named Steve Mitchell, the guitar parts of known songs were slightly or entirely different from what ended being up released nearly a year later on the band's first album 'Wake Me' with guitar solos being the most prominent difference. Some drum parts were different as well.

    - The band performed what appears to be the early version of 'Starting to Fly' with a slightly faster tempo, different guitar solo and additional guitar during the outro. The transition between the first chorus and second verse was longer. Chester also sang the verses on a higher key.

    - These are the first ever public performances of 'Painted', 'The Endless Highway', 'My Bluest Day', 'What's In The Eye?' and 'How Would You Be'. According to Jonathan Krause, 'Wake Me' was originally a Sean Dowdell And His Friends song, so Chester and Sean likely performed this song before in some form. According to Chris Goad, 'Starting To Fly' was also performed with Sean Dowdell And His Friends? before Grey Daze.

    - According to the band's bassist at the time Jonathan Krause, the band went with the spelling "Gray Daze" during the band's earliest days before finally changing it to "Grey" a few months later.

    - Even though the band's flyer for the show didn't list any other bands, according to January 21st, 1994 issue of Arizona Republic, the main performers for the night were Lemon Krayola.

    - The show was booked nearly a month in advance, but sometime around late May - early June, the band started looking for a replacement for Chester due to him not being committed to the band, so it's possible the show was either eventually cancelled or it was the show the band played with Jack Shoots as lead vocalist instead of Chester.

    - Judging by the photos from this improvised show, it looks like Chester and Jason Cekoric (bass) were the only Sean Dowdell And His Friends members that took part in this performance, unless the other members of the band were playing from a different side of the courtyard.

    - The clipping below comes from the Greenway High School's 1993 Yearbook, according to which, it was a performance during the extended lunch period on one of the school's newly implemented "flex schedule days". This novation was also covered in the November 20th ,1992 issue of Greenway High School's own newspaper called Demon Dispatch with a photo of Chester and Jason appearing on the front cover. Both of the photos were taken by the same photographer. The exact date is unknown, but it's possible it was just one of many performances of that kind.

    - The show was privately held in Electric Ballroom for Warner Bros Records executives. The band's manager and venue staff were likely in attendance as well.

    - While the exact date of the show is unknown, it probably happened sometime around late 1996, because on the recording Chester mentions the band is working on their new album with a tentative release date set for January. As we know, the band started pre-production for the album on December 3rd, 1996.

    - Castles N' Coasters is an amusement park and family amusement center located in Phoenix, Arizona.

    - There are several conflicting reports as to what bands were playing with Grey Daze at their supposedly sole Castles N' Coasters performance, so it is unclear if the band actually did multiple shows at the park or if all of them are really the same exact show:

    • Show attendee: "I remember seein one of the early incarnations of jimmy eat world play at Castles N Coasters in Glendale, AZ way back in the day. The opening band was Gray Daze with Chester from Linkin Park on vocals. There were like 30-40 people there. It's amazing that Jimmy Eat World is even still around...they have a few good songs though".
    • Show attendee: "@jimmyeatworld I remember seeing you guys at Castles and Coasters in about '94 and skateboarding with some of you in a Mesa parking garage".
    • Show attendee: "Well, it was awhile ago. I remember they played Castles and Coasters, which I thought was a strange place to have bands. A local rock dj fronted a cover band that played before them. The only other thing I remember from that show was Chester's wife and her baby stroller".
    • Show attendee: "I can't be sure but I think it was during the summer of 1998". When asked if Jimmy Eat World were also on the bill, this person told there weren't any other bands except Grey Daze.
    • Jonathan Krause: "I did not play the Castles and Coaster show. It was probably 97".
    • Member of the band Shaded Grey: "No idea on the dates, but one was at the Mason Jar and another was at Castles N Coasters I believe". When asked if the band played with Jimmy Eat World or "a local rock dj fronted a cover band" as was reported by one of the other persons, he replied: "Hmm... it might be the first one with the cover band. I believe we played after that but before Grey Daze. Tough to remember".
    • Chris Braegger of Chindo Squad: "I don't remember much about it at all, other than it was sponsored by a radio station who was broadcasting from the venue at certain points. Grey Daze wanted to play before us for some reason, which was odd since they generally had bigger crowds that we (Chindo Squad) did. We played with them on several occasions and got to know some of the band pretty well. I remember that show being outside and pretty hot, so it was some time around summer."
    • On December 22nd, 2017, Sean Dowdell posted a picture of Grey Daze an several other people with a comment: "This pic was posted by a fan yesterday. It reminds me of good times. Also in this pic is a man named Jacob Dowdell who passed away on this day Dec 22, a few years ago. I miss several people in this picture @therealgreydaze when we played a show at Castles and Coasters with @jimmyeatworld #greydaze #greydazereunion #greydazetour #ripchester #ripjacob #ripbobby #ripjosh".

    - This date (August 15th, 1997) was found when a person named Jason Williams has made a post on his Facebook after Chester's death about seeing Grey Daze at Castles N' Coasters on the birthday of Jason's childhood friend named Judd, who also tragically passed away some time ago. When asked about the date of Judd's birthday, Jason told that day was August 15th, but he wasn't totally sure about the year. He then said: "I was 12 at the time, so it was 21 years ago on the 15th of August, I believe. I saw Grey Daze play at Electric Ballroom with Chronic Future a few months before that show". The Chronic Future show happened on February 1st, 1997.

    - Grey Daze were the resident band for Electric Ballroom and played a huge number of shows there during the years of its existence.

    - "Triple Exposure" was a KEDJ-FM's (also titled "The Edge") radio program dedicated to local AZ bands. Sean Dowdell was reportedly involved with the program for some period.

    - Chronic Future and Grey Daze both were considered the main acts for the event and were the only bands to be mentioned on tickets.

    - The band was introduced to the stage by a radio personality Gregg Paul of "The Edge".

    - The bio from the website of the band Still reads: "Other accomplishments include consistent radio play and support from the fine folks at the local alternative station KEDJ 106.3FM "The Edge" and their "Triple Exposure" local music show. In fact, we were invited to their "Best of Phoenix" showcase on February 1, 1997 and played a successful set to a sold-out crowd as an opening act for Sony recording artists, Chronic Future. We sold over 1 hundred CD's on that night alone".

    Ryan's Wisdom

    - This performance was filmed for a local Phoenix TV-show called "Rock Club Rising". Two songs were shown on TV in February 1996. The show likely took place in January or February 1996. Unfortunately, the exact date of the show or the airing were not able to be obtained. The setlist listed above is not the full setlist.

    - The Linkin Park community wasn't aware of the existence of the song 'Ryan's Wisdom' until the video of the band performing it during this show surfaced online in 2015 as part of an LPLive exclusive.

    - Originally thought to be titled 'Blaze Wisdom' due to Chester's introduction of the song, it was confirmed a few days later to be 'Ryan's Wisdom'. Sean Dowdell (drummer): "I think that song was called "Ryan's Wisdom". I don't remember it that well at all to be honest". David Knauer (producer): "I knew it as "Ryan's Wisdom". It does sound like he says "Blaze Wisdom", so maybe they changed the name".

    - A local AZ musician Mike Montoya remembering Chester and talking about this show on July 23rd, 2017: "I decided to wait a minute to say something about the loss of Chester Bennington. I remember being so blown away by his talents at big fish pub in Tempe, AZ. He sang my favorite dramarama song and just completely nailed it. I think that night was one of my first times seeing Robin Vining play with Mr. Pink.

    My heart and prayers go out to Chester's family and friends. I wasn't close to him but just the fact that pretty close friends of mine were shows how connected we all are.

    I really believe life is God's gift and yes sometimes it can feel "like a movie you want to leave early" ,but maybe someone got a crappy seat with the three day old sticky soda spill. Or maybe someone doesn't have anyone to sit with?

    Anyhow, anyone feeling like this, feel free to contact me at anytime. God bless you and Chester!".

    - According to show review, Chester had a bad cold, so he asked the audience to get him some water at some point of the show, because he had a sore throat. The band were also reportedly selling/giving away demo CDs and stickers at the show.

    - This late night show was the second one of two band's concerts on the same day.

    - Following Chester's death, Hed PE's former member Mark Young posted the following message on his Facebook: "I think many of us have some fond memories and anecdotes of Chester Bennington to share. Mine goes all the way back to 1998 before Linkin Park came to be, when Hed PE was on tour with Snot. Hed PE was opening for this legendary band and we were playing one night at an outdoor venue in Tempe called Boston's, which is long since gone. During the Snot set, fueled by a few beers, I thought it would be a great idea to stage dive during the show. For a couple minutes it was awesome, getting passed around the crowd while Snot rocked the stage, untl I reached the back of the crowd and was dropped from 6 feet in the air straight onto my head. I was a little dazed and bleeding when a young lad in the audience and his lady came up to help me. He had dreadlocks and an infectious smile, and they half-carried me out to our bus. He got me home safely, commented on what a great show it was, said goodnight and I never saw him again.

    Then in 2000, when Linkin Park opened up for Hed PE for a few brief moments before they went off to the moon, a shaven-head young lad with that same infectious smile came up to me at the start of tour - now the singer of Linkin Park - and recounted the story from Boston's of how he and his wife Samantha had picked me up and helped me out to our bus.

    Such a sweet soul, he will be dearly missed".

    - It was confirmed by Sean's friend Grey Daze were actually on the bill that night as well: "Good times back then Sean, glad I was able to be there in person for most. One of my all time favorite nights was when Grey Daze opened for sevendust, hed-pe and snot!"
