Shock, grief: celebs react online to Chester Bennington's death

LINKIN PARK Mike Shinoda has paid tribute to his dead bandmate Chester Bennington

The news caused an outpouring of grief among celebrities, especially coming so soon on the heels of the death of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, a close friend of Bennington's who committed suicide in May. Both men are now part of a long, disturbing history of rock and roll and untimely death.

"Our GRAMMY family is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of two-time GRAMMY winner Chester Bennington", the statement read. The band had been due to begin a tour next week.

He wrote: "Shocked and heartbroken, but it's true".

Linkin Park fans have been sharing their memories and tributes on social media following the news.

Phoenix native Bennington joined Linkin Park in 1999, and the group quickly rose to fame with hits like "Crawling", "In the End" and "Faint". "This is not the moment, whoever is there behind the screen". Their latest release, "One More Light" debuted at No 1 on the Billboard album chart.

Bennington's fellow bandmates Mike Shinoda and Dave 'Phoenix' Farrell said they had been left "heartbroken" by the news of his death.

"It was really hard and really confusing and really sad", the 38-year-old revealed to music reporter Steve Holden. Linkin Park is the choice of many and Chester Bennington has one of those voices to motivate any individual. The tweets were deleted later, and it remains unclear at the moment whether she actually posted the tweets or whether her Twitter account was hacked. Thank you Chester Bennington, you will truly be missed.

Sure, pain and angst create great music. Of all those albums, however, Hybrid Theory definitely flew closest to the sun with respect to pop integration. "Literally, I'd be six feet under".

Chester wrote a tribute to the star, and sang Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah at his funeral in May. Especially if you're a millennial kid, born and brought up by listening to LP's classic songs. "I think it was good".
