Linkin Park tour canceled following Chester Bennington's death

Lead singer of Linkin Park, Chester Bennington, dead at 41

In 2005, the album was certified as the decade's best-selling debut album and their subsequent studio albums made the band one of the most highly recognized artists in the world. He was 41. The Linkin Park lead singer's death has shocked the music community, in which he was known as one of the leading pioneers of the nu-metal genre. "Thoughts of you flooded my mind and I wept", Bennington wrote in a Twitter post at the time.

Bennington was found dead in Los Angeles on Thursday and authorities are investigating the case as a possible suicide. Coroner's office spokesman Ed Winter says the 41-year-old rocker hanged himself from a bedroom door in his home near Los Angeles.

Bennington was open about his struggles with mental health from the start, encouraging others to seek help, as seen below. He is believed to have committed suicide a week before the California alternative rock-band was due to embark on a US tour. "Our thoughts go out to all those affected". And I wanna dedicate to him.

Bennington had previously struggled with addiction and had spoken about depression and suicide.

The singer said in interviews that he eventually got counseling and help in 2006 and stopped drinking.

The Grammy-winning band released an album titled One More Light in a couple of months ago. It can be remembered that Shinoda sat down with Radio.com as he recalls the time that they learned Cornell's passing while promoting "One More Light". He had discussed them publicly as recent as this year, even telling Rock Sound, "So, it's really great to be able to be doing what I do, especially for a person like me".

The day Bennington took his life would have been Cornell's 53rd birthday. "Love you Chester. I'm pissed that you did this, but I know this could have been me back in the day after getting wasted one night".
