Kris July 20, 2017 Blog, Music News Comments Off on Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington dead at 41, reported suicide

Chester Bennington, vocalist for Linkin Park and for a brief time frontman of STP, has died according to TMZ.  He was just 41 years old.  Law enforcement officials apparently believe Bennington died from suicide, his body found hanging inside is Los Angeles residence.

Bennington and his band Linkin Park rose to fame in 2000 with debut record ‘Hybrid Theory’ and are considered to be pioneers of grass-roots online-only marketing which has now become common place in 2017.  The record was certified diamond with over 11 million copies sold and was nominated at the 2002 Grammy Awards for ‘Best Rock Album’.

Fans immediately took to twitter to mourn his loss, even myself, admittedly never a huge fan of Linkin Park.

 

 

 

 

 

The band also released ‘Talking to Myself’ today at 9:01am minutes after Chester’s body was discovered.
