Liam doesn’t get enough credit for being such a lovely and good egg. He always thanks fans and tweets about even the smaller milestones. His auditions, last year about 5 years of What makes you beautiful. He went to the Brits to receive the award this year and from the look of it, it was a last minute call. Even in his solo interviews, whenever the 1D reunion was the topic, he gave his best reassurances. His love for his boys always shines through and I’m so grateful his solo career is doing so good, he deserves all the love.
So shocked and saddened by the news of Chester Bennington’s passing. I remember the first time I met Chester. I was in a bad mood backstage and he came into the dressing room and lifted my spirits before I took the stage. Working with Chester and Linkin Park on the song ‘Rebellion’ was some of the most fun I’ve had collaborating with another artist. They made me feel right at home when I joined them on stage at the Hollywood Bowl and at the Forum. Our hearts go out to Linkin Park and to Chester’s family. Chester Bennington will be missed.

“When my time comes, forget the wrong that I’ve done.
Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed.
And don’t resent me, and when you’re feeling empty,
Keep me in your memory,
Leave out all the rest.”
