On the life and music of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington

A series of vile messages surfaced early Friday morning on the Twitter feed of Chetser Bennington's widow, Talinda - just hours after the singer's shocking suicide.

Chester was found dead by his housekeeper in his Los Angeles house after hanging himself in the bedroom.

Chester Bennington has launched seven collections with Linkin Park.

The singer had always been open and honest about his past struggles with drugs and alcohol, especially around the time of his divorce from his first wife in 2005.

Yesterday would have been the birthday of a close friend of Beddington's, Chris Cornell, former singer of Soundgarden who also died by suicide in May.

Mike Shinoda, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Chance the Rapper, One Republic and Imagine Dragons, among others, were saddened and disturbed by the singer's death.

"We hope that these heart-breaking events bring awareness and understanding to the cunning and baffling power of these diseases - especially in the lives of men of Chester's, Chris' and our generation". Fans all over the world came to express their condolences and sympathies to the band and the Bennington family, via social media. Even for some other new artist Chester Bennington was always a role model.

A final cause of death won't be confirmed until after the autopsy is completed, according to Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner's office. I woke up with Rocky Raccoon playing in my head and a concerned look my wife's face.

Our thoughts are with Chester's friends and family at this time.

Everyone is looking very emotional at this moment. "An official statement will come out as soon as we have one". The song - about the greed of pushing people to give more than they can afford - takes on an eerily prophetic subtext.

Phoenix native Bennington joined Linkin Park in 1999, and the group quickly rose to fame with hits like "Crawling", "In the End" and "Faint".

Bennington also fronted the Stone Temple Pilots from 2013 to 2015 and made small appearances in the films Crank and Saw 3D.
