RIP Chester. I know exactly what he’s saying in this pic- ‘What’s better to bring you to the glory of sobriety than music!’ when he so graciously joined us on stage at our first ever @RocktoRecovery event. Oh buddy. Such a sweet soul. Loved by so many. I had the joy of meeting and touring w @chesterbe early in @linkinpark’s career. Such a rad dude. I remember watching him run amok drunk, like me, and knew we had that same ‘thing’ we just didn’t know what ‘it’ was yet. It just goes to show you, with addiction it’s a MENTAL DIS-EASE. It has nothing to do with willpower. Now, before anyone attacks me for making assumptions, I’m just telling you from my experience, what I know: my friends, my loved ones that OVERCOME drinking/ using and have LONG TERM SOBRIETY and work diligently, spiritually, STILL suffer with mental demons that drive them, me, US mad!! That drive some of us to THIS! Taking our own lives. The disease centers in our MIND. My message to everyone in early recovery is to realize money, fame, fortune, girls/boys, isn’t going to solve anything. It’s not the problem!! Stay close! Share your pain, open up, let people in! YOU ARE NOT ALONE. We can beat our demons but we need to stick together!! The last interaction I had w Chester was that he gave me a kiss on the cheek as he walked out the door….Chester, love you man! Until we meet again-🖤 Wes #RIPCB #Chester #chesterbennington #dontgiveup

Linkin Park: Chester Bennington Commits Suicide


Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington has committed suicide … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us the singer hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County. His body was discovered Thursday just before 9 AM.

Chester was married with 6 children from 2 wives.

The singer struggled with drugs and alcohol for years. He had said in the past he had considered committing suicide because he had been abused as a child by an older male.

Further details have emerged regarding Bennington‘s passing as Palos Verdes Estates, CA police Captain Mark Velez has spoken to the press (via The Daily Breeze.) According his statement, Bennington‘s body was said to be found by a housekeeper in his Palos Verdes Estates, CA residence shortly before 9:00am this morning.

They did not confirm whether or not his manner of death was hanging, as initial reports have stated. However the Associated Press have already published word from the Coroner’s spokesman that the death was being investigated as an apparent suicide. It was stated however that a suicide note was not found in the residence by responding officers. Bennington was alone at the time of his passing.

Linkin Park: ‘We Never Held The Flag For Nu-Metal’



With over ten million copies sold of their debut album “Hybrid Theory” in the US alone, Linkin Park frontman Mike Shinoda could easily claim to be in one of—if not the most—commercially successful nu metal acts ever. As it turns out though, he and the group never felt they connected wholly with the genre, as he recently told


“At the same time, as big as the band got, we always felt we had something to prove. Even now, that whole nu-metal tag is still there. We never held the flag for nu-metal – it was associated with frat rock. Arrogant, misogynistic, and full of testosterone; we were reacting against that. It breeds an outsiders’ feeling once it’s come and gone and people make jokes about. I fucking make jokes about it! What people don’t realise is I feel the same way.”
