It is with great sadness that I started my new category (Celebrity life) on my blog with the news that Chester Bennington, lead singer of Linkin Park committed suicide at age 41.
Yes it's true! I do not want to believe, I'm a super fan of Linkin Park for a long time, Chester was found dead this Thursday (July 20, 2017) at his home near Los Angeles, California, death is being investigated as a suicide.
Some sites claim that the singer hanged himself in his home. Chester was married and had six children.
As we know he fought for years against drugs and alcohol, and said in an interview last year that he had already thought of suicide because he was abused as a child by an older man.
He was close to Chris Cornell, lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave, who died in May, also in a suicide by hanging. The singer sang a song "Aleluia" without his friend's funeral, which would complete 53 years ago.
Rapper Mike Shinoda lamented the death of Linkin Park's companion. "Shocked and heartbroken, but it's true. An official statement will be issued as soon as we have one,"Shinoda said in his Twitter profile. ( link here )
