We feel your loss as well. My babies are so young to have lost their daddy, and I know that all of you will help keep his memory alive.”

The statement continued with Talinda praising her husband for his wonderful soul. “He was a bright, loving soul with an angel’s voice, and now he is pain free, singing his songs in all of our heart,” she said.

Linkin Park Releases Official Statement Following Chester Bennington’s Death

Chester Bennington passed away last week. The famous Linkin Park musician decided to commit suicide and was found dead in his home in Los Angeles. Chester hanged himself. Following his death, a lot of people took to social media to express their shock and regret for what happened.

Linkin Park band members also shared a series of messages, but no official statement. The official statement came only yesterday, when the band released a very emotional message. “Our hearts are broken. The shockwaves of grief and denial are still sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened,” the official statement said.

“You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realised. In the past few days, we’ve seen an outpouring of love and support, both public and private, from around the world,” the statement added. The statement was actually written in the form of a letter addressed to Chester. “Your absence leaves a void that can never be filled—a boisterous, funny, ambitious, creative, kind, generous voice in the room is missing,” it said.

“We’re trying to remind ourselves that the demons who took you away from us were always part of the deal. After all, it was the way you sang about those demons that made everyone fall in love with you in the first place. You fearlessly put them on display, and in doing so, brought us together and taught us to be more human. You had the biggest heart, and managed to wear it on your sleeve,” the emotional statement added.

It is unclear what Linkin Park plans to do at this point, now that Chester is gone. This is something that the band also admitted in its statement. The statement said that Linkin Park did not know what will happen in the future.

Meanwhile, the coroner’s office confirmed that Chester hanged himself and claimed that no drugs were found in his Los Angeles home. A half empty bottle of alcohol was found in the room where Chester’s body was discovered. There was no suicide note left behind by the star.

Linkin Park Launches Suicide Prevention Website

There is no doubt in the fact that one of the saddest news of last week for all Linkin Park fans from around the world has been the death of Chester Bennington, the frontman of the famous band. Chester has suffered from depression, drugs and alcohol abuse, and committed suicide hanging himself.

The fact that he battled depression has been widely known because Chester himself has talked about this subject during various interviews. Chester left behind a wife and six children.

At the time of his death, the band was set to perform in a series of locations in the US, as part of their world tour. Since the concerts were canceled, fans were offered refunds.

The reason for Chester’s suicide is of course unclear. The only thing that is known at this point is that no one talked about a note potently left behind by the star. Chester committed suicide at the age of 41 on what would have been the birthday of Chris Cornell, one of his closest friends. Cornell also committed suicide in May. The singer was 52 years old. Chris Cornell also hanged himself.

Of course, a lot of famous people took to social media following Chester’s death, to pay tribute to the famous musician. Among them were Bling-182, as well as famous 20 Seconds to Mars frontman Jerad Leto. “When I think of Chester I remember his smile, his laughter, his intelligence, kindness and talent. That absolutely unforgettable voice that was at once – delicate, ferocious and always full of emotion,” Leto shared.
