LOOK: LINKIN PARK's Chester Bennington Passes Away At 41!
Just two hours after Linkin Park released the new music video "Talking To Myself" off their seventh studio album One More Light, fans were shocked and saddened by the news about the death of beloved frontman Chester Bennington.
According to a report by TMZ, the 41-year old singer's body was found at his private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in Los Angeles County. Identified as suicide by hanging, his passing comes nearly two months after that of dear friend and fellow rock icon Chris Cornell who died in a similar manner.
Chester's death was confirmed on Twitter by bandmate Mike Shinoda who was "shocked and heartbroken."

Meanwhile, there was an outpouring of tweets from other music stars and fans of the vocalist behind such hits as "In The End" and "What I've Done".

artists are ppl compelled to bring beauty into a world that can be so dark. makes sense then that artists are always conscious of darkness..— hayley from Paramore (@yelyahwilliams) July 20, 2017

Mental health is no joke. We have to destigmatize the conversation around it.— yung menace (@petewentz) July 20, 2017
