Linkin Park Singer, Chester Bennington Commits Suicide By Hanging
July 20, 2017
First of all, RIP to Linkin Park singer, Chester Bennington, who I just have learned has committed suicide by hanging.
This dude’s voice put me onto Linkin Park and I’m a Hip-Hop head. All I can say is that I’m in utter shock ad I know that you will be missed.
Police have reported that Chester Bennington hung himself at a private residence which is in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County.
Chester Bennington was found lifeless on Thursday just before 9 AM. The Linkin Park singer was married with 6 children from 2 wives.
I personally didn’t know him, but sources claim that the singer had struggled with drugs and alcohol for years. Supposedly, he has said in the past that he had considered committing suicide. Chester Bennington claimed that he was abused by an older man as a child which drove him to think this way.
Chris Cornell, who had also committed suicide by hanging in May was very close friends with Chester Bennington and today would have been Cornell’s 53rd birthday.
Linkin Park is known for putting out a bunch of hist over the years, such as “Faint,” “In the End” and “Crawling.” Jay-z even did a whole album with them because of how dope and original their music was.
Linkin Park’s album, “Meteora,” was one of the biggest alternative albums in music history and basically the only group outside of Hip-Hop that I really listened to when they came on the scene.
Chester Bennington was 41 years old. You will be missed, LEGEND. RIP
