Linkin Park Band Members React to Chester Bennington’s Death
Shortly after the Los Angeles County coroner confirmed the death of Chester Bennington, several band members spoke out on social media expressing their emotions.
“Shocked and heartbroken, but it’s true. An official statement will come out as soon as we have one,” Mike Shinoda wrote on Twitter. Dave Phoenix Farrell simply wrote, “Heartbroken.”
The band’s Twitter account would later post a powerful photo of Chester performing in front of a sold-out crowd.
According to reports, Chester’s body was found in a private home in the upscale Palos Verdes neighborhood of Los Angeles Thursday morning.
Police later confirmed the news that they had responded to a report about a suicide at a residence in the area around that time.
The passing comes just days before Linkin Park was set to launch their One More Light world tour with special guests Machine Gun Kelly, One OK Rock and Snoop Dogg.
