One day, I will play my Linkin Park records to my son. And I will tell him of a band, that changed lifes. Of a band, that made me see things in a different light. And I will tell him of a man, that had the purest and rawest of voices. I will tell him, the he had the ability to be a hero, singing of all his sorrows and fears and made the day a bit brighter. A hero, who gave this magic to his family, friends and fans. He selflessly spent it all on others, until he had none left for himself.
Still looking up to you from far below, Chester. Wherever you may be.

Not only was he an amazing singer and dancer, but he was an amazing humanitarian. He used his fame to help heal the world, save lives, touch peoples’ hearts, and deliver powerful messages through his music, a characteristic artists lack today. And that is why he will always be one of my top most role models, no matter what false trash is against him!
