Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington commits suicide by hanging

SPREAD THE WORD:

Linkin Park vocalist Chris Bennington has committed suicide by hanging on the same day as long time friend Chris Cornell's birthday, who took his life in May this year. Bennington was 41.


The iconic Linkin Park signer and vocalist Chester Bennington has committed suicide Thursday by hanging himself from a rope in his home. Law enforcement reports his family was out of town at the time of the suicide and he was found upstairs by an employee. He was 41 years old.

Bennington was a main vocalist for the legendary rock band Linkin Park, whose songs inspired a generation during the 90's and early 2000's.

Some people are pointing out a possible connection to Bennington's death and Chris Cornell, singer and songwriter for rock bands Soundgarden and Audioslave. Cornell, also, committed suicide by hanging - and on the date Bennington took his own life was Cornell's birthday. Cornell would have been 53.

Bennington's emotional and heartfelt song "One More Light" was a tribute dedicated to the legacy of longtime friend and fellow musician Cornell. Bennington and Cornell shared a deep-rooted relationship of friendship during their years of rock-n-roll stardom, and it's possible birthday of Cornell may have influenced Bennington to take his own life.




The day Bennington took his own life would have been Cornell's 53rd birthday. Bennington also wrote an open letter to Cornell on the day of his suicide, two months ago in May:

After Bennington took his own life in similar fashion as Cornell, his wife, Vicky, tweeted out her despair following the news of Bennington's death, saying, "Just when I thought my heart couldn't break any more ... I love you T."

The band has had a string of hits over the years, including "Faint," "In the End" and "Crawling." Linkin Park crossed music genres, collaborating with Jay-Z.
