Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda has shared a few words on Bennington’s loss:

 

ORIGINAL STORY:

downinthepit has just become aware of the death of Linkin Park singer, Chester Bennington.

Authorities have released the following information:

  • Bennington hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A.
  • His body was discovered Thursday just before 9 A.M.

Chester was married with 6 children. Struggling with drugs and alcohol for years, he had noted in the past that suicide had been in his scope. He referenced abuse as a child from an older male.

Chester’s close friend, Chris Cornell, had recently committed suicide himself back in May. Today was Cornell’s 53rd birthday.

Linkin Park has been a household name for years. With songs like “In the End” and “Crawling,” the group feared no genre. Their album “Meteroa” still holds the rank of one of the largest alternative albums in music history.

Chester Bennington was 41. We wish Chester’s family the best in this time of tragedy. RIP.
