Chester Bennington, lead singer of famous rap-rock group Linkin Park, commited suicide yesterday (July 20, 2017) in his Calfornia Estate. Many were shocked by this event, even those who do not frequently listen to his music, like me, because it was so unexpected. Some suspect his suicide was due to his drug and alcohol abuse, but some also theorize that it might have been over his distraught feelings of sadness for Chris Cornell's death, who he was a friend of.
As I stated, I don't listen to Linkin Park very much, but even I am saddened by this death. It is sad to hear of people commiting suicide, especially when it is so unexpected as this one was. Either way, may Chester Bennington rest in peace.
