17. It’s a miracle that Chester persevered and became the frontman for Linkin Park - as a child, he was molested by an older friend (ages 7 - 13), bullied by people at school, abused by his parents who were going through a divorce, stricken with poverty, was into hardcore substance abuse (alcohol, marijuana, opium, cocaine, meth, LSD) at the age of 14, and self harmed. Despite all this, Chester managed to overcome his demons and become part of one of the most successful musical groups of all time.
