He Appeared on the 2006 Grammys With Jay Z and Linkin Park
The only reason a viral "Who is that guy onstage with Jay Z?" joke didn’t happen in 2006 was because Twitter didn't get invented until the following month. During the death throes of mash-up mania, Jay Z (rocking a John Lennon shirt!) and Linkin Park performed their Grammy-winning combo of the rapper's "Numb" and the band's "Encore." The song slowly transformed into the Beatles' "Yesterday" and the Wing-leader emerged from the wings.
