I'll keep my opinions to myself and instead say thanks for all the memories.

Jeez, looking at the song history in retrospect is an eye opener.


"One step closer to the edge, and I'm about to BREAK!"


Chester will always have a part in my heart, his music is embedded in my soul.

Sad day.

Sorry but i have to strongly disagree with you on the courage and coward part. Since i have become an expert(roughly 15 years) of some kind on drastic actions like these i can tell you that fighting the urge to end your life is definitely the hardest part you'll ever have to face. Ending it is pretty easy compared to living and dealing with it second by second to be perfectly honest. You don't think about your family or the people you leave behind. Just the longing for peace and quiet and one day it overwhelms you if you're not careful. I'm glad that i found my own balance without medication or therapy but i'm fully aware of the fact that some day it not might be enough. I'm probably alone on this one but i still think that therapy and suicide hotlines make it worse for some people.

Apparently he had been abused as a child by an older male. Still, 6 kids have no father now - I feel sorry he couldn't keep it together for them.


One of the biggest reasons why i'll never father any children.

Not sure why, but this news brought this old song to my mind.

When I hear of people committing suicide, it makes me double down on the appreciation for what I have been blessed with.

In some peoples eyes it may not be much, but I have a wife that I don't deserve, and a son that makes me wonder how my genes produced something so awesome.

News like this makes me reflect and be glad to be alive.
P.O.D. Alive

But isn't the entire process an act of courage? The constant battles and storms that has become one's life and getting to the final part where you finally take your own life? I'm thinking that even in that final moment, there has to be great courage as we have such a powerful instinct to survive.

I am pleased to hear that you have found a balance in your life and pray that you keep it.

Weird your track of choice reminded me of Meat Loaf for some odd reason.

Of course i can only speak for myself but for me it would be pretty easy. Like i said all your logic and rational thoughts are just gone. I know i'm going to piss off alot of people but some of the suicide attempts are just a cry for help and they don't intend to go really through with it. I survived 2 attempts and i was saved through sheer luck and nothing else.

Just shattered and speechless. I swear over the years I posted more Linkin Park music here than anyone.... I'm in tears. Feeling like there is a great injustice in the universe right now....

rest in peace.

I love Chester, I'm one of the few who still listen to his old unsigned band "grey daze" from before he got famous.
it's true what they say, the brightest lights burn twice as fast.

NOOOOOOOOOOO!


I don't usually cry over celebrity deaths but I am now. I love his music, very recently some of his music helped me through a rough time. So sad. You never really know what someone is going through. This just shows money will not make you happy nor will fame and success. Depression can affect anyone.

WOW. RIP Chester.


Seems like money and fame make things worse...


I don't think it makes it worse. Maybe it just helps hide it for some time. I honestly don't know I'm not rich and famous. I know his lyrics said a lot, he clearly had some inner demons. I related to a lot of LP music and never had a clue he was that depressed, but then again how could anyone other than those closest to him and even then they never really knew either.

Linkin Park was the first band I ever got into. This is a huge tragedy. I'm speechless.

Not only that, I'd dare to say it's a fu€king conspiracy. Chris Cornell had a foundation for abused children and was supposedly about to expose some big "black book" pedos in Hollywood before his death... then on Chris' birthday, his best friend and godfather of his children also decides to commit suicide? Doesn't make sense. Like isn't that a huge slap in the face to Chris's memory? Rather than a day to celebrate Chris's life, it's now a day to mourn Chester's death... He was the godfather of Chris's children. It just doesn't make sense.

Sad for all those around him, family etc.

That aside, terrible band and part of the problem (music-wise anyway).
Acceptable pop metal and mtv orchestrated rebellion for 12 year olds... who apparently are a bit older now.

WHY even comment if you're going to say that? Seriously? Have you ever listened to their music? The lyrics are what speak to me and to many.

Chester was a true musician unlike the majority of so called artists on the radio now. He wasn't manufactured by some Hollywood studio. If it's not your kind of music why even comment? The man is dead and left behind a family with 6 kids and not to mention the millions of fans who related to his music. Many of their songs helped me through various dark times in my life. Depression is something I battle daily and it is NOT easy, so I'll take his meaningful pop metal lyrics over crap like Katy Perry or Beyonce or Jay Z. His music showed me that hey I"m not alone, even some famous singer feels the way I do and sings about it and shares that pain with others.

The curse of materialism. Too many think that if only they had this or that or more, then their lives would be better, but then you get what you think you wanted and find out you're still just as empty inside as you always were.

Exactly. You can't fill the void inside you with "stuff." Thinking that you can is misleading.

One of my favorite quotations, as a paraphrase: No matter where you go, or what you do, you can't escape yourself.

I just found out.
Linkin Park was one of the few bands in the last 20 years that I actually liked.

Sad.
Someone probably already posted this, but it is my favorite video.
