On the morning of July 20, 2017, we learned of the passing of Linkin Park frontman, 41 year old Chester Bennington. It still doesn’t seem real.

"It destroyed my self-confidence"

Innocence Shattered

Chester was born March 20th, 1976 in Phoenix, and like many, he was abused and molested as a child. He spoke about it in a recent interview saying: "It destroyed my self-confidence. Like most people, I was too afraid to say anything. I didn't want people to think I was gay or that I was lying. It was a horrible experience."

He Was A Survivor

"You can't be afraid of people willing to hurt you, cause if you fear life, then you will never live"

"When life leaves us blind, love keeps us kind."

Chester Struggled..in pain

A victim of horrible abuse as a young boy, Chester sought refuge by doing drigs to mask the pain and internal suffering.

Where’s Rock Bottom?

Do we ever really know where rock bottom is or what it feels like? Chester said at one point said he "weighed 110 pounds. My mom said I looked like I stepped out of Auschwitz"

The idea that success equals happiness pisses me off. It’s funny to think that just because you’re successful you’re now immune to the full range of the human experience.” – Chester Bennington

"I'm strong on the outside, not all the way through. I've never been perfect, but neither have you."

Not Soon Forgotten

"Most of my work has been a reflection of what I've been going through in one way or another. I have been able to tap into all the negative things that can happen to me throughout my life by numbing myself to the pain so to speak and kind of being able to vent it through my music."

Any Regrets?

"There are always going to be encounters that you kind of wish went differently."

They aren't just songs!

Music Heals

"I have been able to tap into all the negative things that can happen to me throughout my life by numbing myself to the pain so to speak and kind of being able to vent it through my music."

Success Does Not Equal Happiness

"Success is nice, but it shouldn't be the only reason why you're a musician."

from Chester's record company...

“Chester Bennington was an artist of extraordinary talent and charisma, and a human being with a huge heart and a caring soul. All of us at WBR join with millions of grieving fans around the world in saying: we love you Chester and you will be forever missed.”

-former Warner Brothers Records CEO Cameron Strang

LIMITED EDITION * NOT SOLD IN STORES!

"Tattoos exude pain and pleasure all at the same time."

Everything Has Meaning

"My tattoos all symbolise something. The flames on my arm represent the Aries part of my fire sign.My left shoulder has a Piscean symbol and a Japanese Koi carp on my right. I have the album design on my left calf muscle. My back piece is six arms spread out and was done by my friend, who said it was a visual representation of how I reach out and grab the audience. I thought that was nice.”

Growing Up

"Even though we have sold millions of records we are literally a bunch of guys who have a cool job. I don’t think I’m any different from who I was when I joined the band other than I’m older and have more experience."

a bit of honest reflection

“What’s the worst thing I’ve stolen? Probably little pieces of other people’s lives. Where I’ve either wasted their time or hurt them in some way. That’s the worst thing you can steal, the time of other people. You just can’t get that back.”

– a somber thought by Chester

In the end

One More Light

"Who cares if one more light goes out...Well, I do"

Born: March 20, 1976,  Freed: July 20, 2017

I kept everything inside
And even though I tried, it all fell apart
