Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington dead at 41 James Stokes July 20, 2017 News 492 Chester Bennington, best known as the frontman for rap-metal titans Linkin Park, has reportedly died by hanging. Linkin Park had only recently released and begun a touring cycle for One More Light, their seventh full-length album, which came amidst criticisms of embracing a poppier sound. Linkin Park were one of the millenium’s biggest and best-selling rock bands, rising to prominence in the nu-metal scene of the late 90’s/early 2000’s with albums Hybrid Theory and Meteora, evolving as a band to surpass the scenes and establish themselves as a force in their own right. Bennington was 41, and is survived by six children. His untimely death comes all too soon after Chris Cornell’s, who was a friend of Bennington’s and also committed suicide. Artists rise, artists fall, thankfully some are still here at all. RIP.
