Chester Bennington (No. 3, music) passed away last week. The response from his fans was immediate and incredibly emotional. Chester and the rest of Linkin Park played a therapeutic role in so many lives. He will be deeply missed by millions and millions.
Mental health can be hard to talk about, but it’s important to remember you do have people to talk to if you need it. No matter who you are, no matter what you’re going through, there are resources out there to help.
"Who cares if one more light goes out in the sky of a million stars? … I do."
I lost my hero today. I feel like I’ve lost a part of my soul.
I was 14 when I first found out about Linkin Park. They were the first band I fell in love with that weren’t from my country yet made me feel like I needed to go through all their records. And so I did. Chester’s voice represented so much that I could not put in words. But I needed to understand his words too. Without the translations. This made me pay attention to my English classes. I owe my first attempts of learning how to speak English to him and his band.
I have turned to Linkin Park’s music for every emotion I have ever felt. Their music has touched me. Chester’s powerful voice has guided me through hard times and it was with me when I was feeling on top of the world too.
Chester was my first music idol. I literally grew up listening to Linkin Park.
It’s devastating how one can save millions but millions can not save the one. You’re always going to be my legend. You’ve had an impact on millions, Ches. You will live on in your music. May your voice and Linkin Park never leave our hearts 🥀
Rest In Peace, Chester Bennington. March 20, 1976 - July 20, 2017
