Chester Bennington Commits Suicide At 41

Today we have lost an absolute legend, Chester Bennington, the man who put every single emotion into all of his songs. In case you aren’t familiar with Chester, he was the lead singer of Linkin Park.

Over the years Chester has talked about his battle with depression and addiction.

According to TMZ, Chester hung himself at his home while his family was out of town.

This news comes on what would have been Chris Cornell’s 53rd birthday, someone who Chester was extremely close with. Back in May, Chester actually performed at Chris’ memorial service.

The band was even set to start a tour with Machine Gun Kelly, of course there has been no word on what will happen there. I would guess they could cancel but we will see. The band has yet to put out an official statement.

Truthfully this is a celebrity death that kind of hits very close for me and probably many other people. One of the great things about Linkin Park was their ability to make you feel. That simple, Linkin Park’s music makes you feel something. Hybrid Theory and Meteora were two albums that I could listen to each and every song on, never get sick of it.

If you know someone who is struggling with depression or having suicidal thoughts, please reach out them, let them know you are there for them. If you yourself are having these thoughts please know that there is help out there, and people want to be there for you.

Chester leaves behind six children.

I have said it once, I will say it a million times. The year 2016 has fucking sucked, there I said it!

Two days ago we lost George Michael, today the iconic actress Carrie Fisher passed away. On December 23rd, Carrie suffered a massive heart attack on a flight back from London and reports say that she never improved from that. She was placed on a ventilator and this morning her heart simply stopped beating.

Carrie was in London promoting her new book “The Princess Diarist”where she opened up about her affair with Harrison Ford, addiction, and more.

She leaves behind her daughter Billie Lourd and her beloved dog Gary who she always traveled with.

In reality, Carrie Fisher was an icon for many reasons. The first one in my opinion was that she proved that women can be heroes too. She played a female hero which is still hard to find to this day. She was also very open with her personal issues and she seemed to be overcoming them.

Thank you for all you did Carrie, you will be missed.
