Just heard this on the radio. Another terrible suicide.

link


Law enforcement sources tell us the singer hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County. His body was discovered Thursday just before 9 AM.

Chester was married with 6 children from 2 wives.

Chester was very close with Chris Cornell, who himself committed suicide by hanging in May. Today would have been Cornell's 53rd birthday. Chester wrote an open letter to Chris on the day of Chris' suicide.

I grew up with LInkin Park and i still listen to some of their older songs and i don't know how i feel about this. Leaving 6 kids and 2 wifes behind is a pretty selfish move but wasnt he diagnosed with throat cancer or something? # i'm so out of the loop with the music biz these days.

RiP Chester

This sucks.

Thanks Chester. I know you can't exactly read this but........ Thanks for everything. Thanks for the entertainment, thanks for contributing to songs that made my soul vibrate with life and with understanding and thanks for being there for me during a difficult time in my life, (Via Linkin Park music) I'm sorry we couldn't be there for you.

You like to operate in the shadows but your prefered method of getting in contact is a generic email address. Wow you really suck at being secretive.

Yes it is confirmed. What a versatile talent and voice. Listening to Waiting For The End live in Moscow right now. "Flying at the speed of light, thoughts were spinning in my head. So many things were left unsaid, I wish it wasn't so."

Such a waste, so sorry for the ones left behind. It just goes to show you, having fortune and fame is not the end goal in life. God bless.

No, people have demons and struggle with mental health and substance abuse issues regardless of fame.

Money/fame doesn't cure depression, or pacify one's demons. Depression Is serious business.


The singer struggled with drugs and alcohol for years. He had said in the past he had considered committing suicide because he had been abused as a child by an older male.

Yeesh... I just downloaded his song "Heavy" last night... I think it just released this year, and they had a tour coming up.

Media report said his friends intervened in his recreational drug use.
They made him chose between being Chester or that F'ing guy.

I discovered alot of similarities between me and their tracks over the years. I know it's from the Minutes to Midnight album but i like this song and i'm not ashamed to admit it.

Same here.... Here's some of the lyrics of his newest song, doesn't really sound like Linkin Park... I guess he was reaching out, eh?

I don't like my mind right now
Stacking up problems that are so unnecessary
Wish that I could slow things down
I wanna let go but there's comfort in the panic
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything's about me
Yeah, I drive myself crazy
'Cause I can’t escape the gravity

I'm holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Holding on
So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what's bringing me down
If I just let go, I'd be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?

You say that I'm paranoid
But I'm pretty sure the world is out to get me
It's not like I make the choice
To let my mind stay so #ing messy
I know I'm not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning 'round me just the same
I know I'm not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning 'round me just the same
