Chester Bennington Linkin Park Hangs Himself

Chester Bennington

Last night, it was confirmed that Linkin Park's frontman Chester Bennington had died of an apparent suicide. Founded in 1996, Linkin Park made seven albums and had hits with songs including "In the End" and "Crawling".

Chester, along with the band, has been hailed as being instrumental in the development of the nu metal genre. "Vocal beast! #RIPChester #LinkinPark (sic)" Steve Aoki has been "destroyed" by the news.

Rihanna's pal Katy Perry also sent her condolences to Chester's loved ones. The band's debut album, 2000's "Hybrid Theory", was certified diamond by the Recording Academy, meaning it sold more than 10 million copies in the United States.

The Linkin Park star performed a musical tribute at his friend's funeral.

'You think at 41 someone has their life worked out but pressures build up and sometimes people aren't able to reach out for help, ' he described.

The band's official account simply posted a poignant picture of Chester from a recent show, surrounded by fans and phone lights. "So heartbroken. RIP Chester Bennington".

"I can't imagine a world without you in it. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your life".

He wrote: "I am in tears". Your talent was pure and unrivalled.

"Do I go out there or not?" Your essence is amongst the stars.

"Law enforcement sources tell us the singer hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County".

"She's obviously been hacked".

He confessed to being a "full blown, raging alcoholic" but had tried to put that behind him. For the man, the voice, the music that captured the eerie silences in my head is gone.

"I deserve to be happy".

He told Billboard that year that Cornell was tops among artists he wanted to collaborate with on a future project.

Tributes have poured in for Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, after he was found dead aged 41-years-old.
