Absolute devastating news about Chester Bennington, the late frontman of one of the most influential rock bands of the 2000’s; Linkin Park.
As a generation, we have lost a music inspiration and spokesman. The singer has been reported to having sadly committed suicide by hanging himself. At only 41 years young, the news has shocked many.
Chester Bennington influenced many people with his performance as frontman of Linkin Park and is a huge name to remember within the music industry.
Fans are in bits. His voice has and always will be a talent in which cannot be replaced. Emphasising pain, anger, politics and underground punk, Linkin Park were an incredibly influential and loved band.
Understandably, this news has had a real, traumatic impact on his fans, his band and his friends and family.
I place respect to the rest of the band members in Linkin Park, for they have lost a music genius. And big love to the family he has created and to his own.
