Chester Bennington, lead singer of Linkin Park, has reportedly commit suicide. The 41-year-old singer was found lifeless in his home near Los Angeles, California. The official report is underway, but his unfortunate passing is being labeled as a suicide.
He's best known for his extremely powerful and delicate vocals that mirror the rap chords coming from his co-lead singer, Mike Shinoda. Bennington could belt a vocal piece out of a ballpark like it was nothing. His voice brought his often sinister dark lyrics to life and mesmerized audiences who filled stadiums to hear him and Linking Park perform. He was also in a side project called Dead by Sunrise and took over as lead singer for Stone Temple Pilots when they split with Scott Weiland. Weiland passed away in 2015.
Bennington was best friends with Chris Cornell, the late frontman from Soundgarden. Bennington was found deceased on Cornell's birthday. They both shared a very disturbing past. Both were victims of child abuse. Rumors state that they were about to blow the lid off an elite pedophile ring that involved the Clinton Foundation, or members from it. Cornell and his wife, Vicky, ran a philanthropic program supporting and protecting vulnerable kids.

Chester Bennington openly struggled with addition. He didn't care that people were aware of his problems and he didn't want to hide them. He was brave and faced them head on.
Some lyrics from Linkin Park's first album, Hybrid Theory, were so dark and personal to him. It's only now that we see how his music was an outlet for his struggles with abuse and addiction. Losing his best friend, Chris Cornell to possible suicide, was perhaps the tipping point where he became numb.
Watching some of his live videos on YouTube can easily bring a tear to your eye. It's a sad end to what should have been a wonderful life. Nothing mattered compared to the abuse he endured up to 13-years-old, then his problems with addiction, and finally losing his best friend. He left behind six kids and his wife Talinda Bentley.
It didn't matter how successful he was, how great his family was, or how many fans he had. In the end, it didn't even matter.
