Sad news has just broke that Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington has committed suicide. According to TMZ, “law enforcement sources tell us the singer hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County. His body was discovered Thursday just before 9 AM.”
Shocked and heartbroken, but it's true. An official statement will come out as soon as we have one.

What makes this incredibly sad event even more eerie is that Bennington was very good friends with Chris Cornell, who hung himself back in May. And today would have been Chris Cornell’s 53rd birthday which leads us to believe as one of the reasons that Chester chose today.
The band just released the music video for their new single “Talking To Myself“. RIP Chester Bennington.
