Chester Charles Bennington is an American singer and songwriter and is most famously known for his role as the frontman for the rock band Linkin Park. His musical career was not just limited to LP, he was also the lead singer for Dead by Sunrise and also performed for Stone Temple Pilots between the years of 2013 to 2015.
However, his suicide last week has taken the music industry aback and many fans are still reeling from his untimely death.
Chester’s last tweet showcased just how much he was looking forward to his future.
The 41-year-old was found dead at his home in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A County on July 20, 2017. He leaves behind his wife and six children.
His last tweet was a repost of American hip hop artist, George Watsky, and it illustrates just how excited he was for the future.
The tweet featured a picture of four men that included Chester, Mike Shinoda, Chukwudi Hodge and George Watsky.
Chester retweeted George’s tweet with the caption: ‘can’t wait to see where this goes.’ This was meant to foreshadow the collaboration between the musical geniuses. George shared some of his insight by saying, on Twitter, ‘it was clear he had a lot of music left in him.’
Chester joined Linkin Park in 1999 and has been with the rock band ever since. The very next year they achieved international recognition via the release of their album, Hybrid Theory.
Chester also performed at his close friend Chris Cornell’s memorial service. Cornell also committed suicide just two months ago.
He purchased the Palos Verdes Estates home in June just eight days after the death of Soundgarden’s front man, Chris Cornell. His band mates say that Chester was excited and enthusiastic about his future with his family and his career.
He was active on social media up to the time of his death and he was campaigning passionately about the things he cared about such as climate change and creating a more eco-friendly world.
