R.I.P. Chester Bennington

2017-07-20 by starboystargirl | 617 Comments
Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington has committed suicide.

Law enforcement sources informed TMZ 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.

Chester was married with 6 children from 2 wives.

The singer struggled with drugs and alcohol for years. He had said in the past he had considered committing suicide because he had been abused as a child by an older male.

Bennington said earlier this month that Linkin Park fans should "move the fuck on" from the formative sound of the band's debut album, Hybrid Theory. He also admonished those disregarding the band as sell-outs by saying they should "stab [themselves] in the face!"

"If you’re gonna be the person who says like 'they made a marketing decision to make this kind of record to make money' you can fucking meet me outside and I will punch you in your fucking mouth because that is the wrong fucking answer."

"Because guess what, calling us a sell out for that purpose is… selling out on your fucking excuse as to why you don’t like it. You’re a fucking pussy. For any band to take musical risks because you like what you’re doing in spite of what you know some people will say they don’t like, it doesn’t matter if they like it or not – what matters is that you took the chance to do something that you felt was important to you and that’s what being an artist is all about."

Words can't express how much Linkin Park's music has helped me over the years, Meteora, Minutes to Midnight, and Living Things in particular I have so many memories with. This is an absolute shock, and no-one expected it. I sincerely hope his family, band brothers and everyone who knew him personally are able to get through this. This is a horrifying situation, the world will miss Chester and all that he created. I'm honestly still in shock myself, and haven't felt this shocked by a musician's death since the Rev of Avenged Sevenfold passed all those years ago. Hard RIP, jamming Linkin Park right now in his honor.

RIP hard, man. Gonna go on an LP binge tonight and remember.

Didn't enjoy their new album but shit, these guys were the soundtrack to my early teens. And he's leaving behind a wife and 6 kids too. I've struggled with suicidal ideation in the past and this just hits fucking hard.

At first I thought it was an extremely bad joke given the recent album's backlash and his erratic behaviour, but then reports kept piling up... I'm still speechless... I remember Linkin Park were the first band I started jamming seriously, trying out so many songs. They pretty much sparked my interest in rock and maybe music in general. They've been quite a part of my life in younger years and it's fair to say that maybe I wouldn't even have arrived on this site without them, indirectly.

This feels different for me because Chester was a voice of my generation. Whereas I still loved bands like Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots, they were very much clearly "90s" bands that belonged to Generation X, making most of their music before I was born. They were the elder statesmen of alternative rock that had already defined themselves as anthems for people who grew up in that timeframe. Linkin Park, as a 2000s band, was always one that fit in with my age group, perhaps the most popular rock band of the decade, and one who, as clichéd as it sounds, connected with people my age and younger. The people I talked to who like alt/rock music, and even some who wouldn't call it their favorite type of music, knew and respected their biggest hits. "In the End". "Numb". 552 million views for "Numb" on YouTube, one of the top five most viewed rock videos in history. I've said this before, but "Numb" was the first song I ever loved. I heard it in the April of 2004, when I was on a plane and I was bored and I listened to my dad's MP3 player. "Numb" was the one that I loved the most, and I played that damn song over and over again. The worst part was that I didn't remember the title of it, and it took me years to find out what that one magical song was. When I heard it again, I instantly knew that was the song. The first few seconds came back and I remembered, that was the song. They were the first band with screamed vocals that I enjoyed, and it played a role in changing my mind from me despising heavy music to me appreciating it. They were undoubtedly a gateway band, but their best songs still hold up today.

When I was 12, I had a dream that Mike Shinoda had died, and it was on the news. It wasn't a nice feeling, but I got over it quickly. I'm reminded of that dream today because after it happened, I told myself, I won't have to worry about that for another 30 years. Someone once told me that you know you're getting old when the celebrities from your childhood start to die out. I just didn't expect it to happen this early.

Ok, so apparently people are not allowed to dislike music right now? He was the pussy if he let it bother him. I'm sure all of you would laugh your asses off if Anders Friden committed suicide over people taking the piss out of in flames' later albums.

Also, I totally don't think Chester would be that bothered about this in particular, he must have had tons of other problems.

everyone reserves the right to not like the music (also if it was more marketing, they probably would've gone back to the hybrid theory/meteora sound so whoever says that is kind of dumb)

personally i didn't care whether they went back to x sound, but those will be the two records that stay with me because they were my formative stages music wise

Damn. I don't want to take away from the true sadness that this is, but I thought I'd share something kinda crazy.

Went to work early this morning and had "Easier to Run" stuck in my head for most of it. Thought it was a little weird bc I barely listen to Linkin Park anymore but it was feeling good in my head so I was digging it, didn't try to "change the song" if you will.

No access to a computer and no time to check my phone. Find out this afternoon about Chester from a coworker. Real talk, I'm not someone to make up shit like this and I don't really believe in the supernatural. Probably just a crazy coincedence (the timing, and THAT song) but nonetheless I thought I'd share.

Anyway fucking RIP, him and Cornell in the same year.. what can you even say

The signs were kinda there... I mean, he was actually walking around threatening his own fans and calling them names. He also said he takes criticism way too personal, and decided to apologize for his behavior. It's just evidence he wasn't really in a right place mentally.

Still, I wasn't expecting this at all. I still am flabbergasted since I read the news on billboard. I still love their first two records, and a few of the songs they released after. Too bad One More Light is his last recording. RIP

I'm not gonna lie, I never had any sentimental ties to Hybrid Theory or Meteora. At their best, I thought this band was okay. But they still have songs I absolutely love (Shadow of the Day, Numb, New Divide, What I've Done, Castle of Glass and the demo for I'll Be Gone). This band was very important to kids growing up in the early 2000's and they seemed to be one of the few bands that people bridged the gap between hip-hop, rock, and pop music lovers and that's important. RIP Chester.

Cornell and Bennington are 2 of my favorite vocalists of all time and they are gone in 2 month span

I'm utterly crushed. These legends were catalysts in music and therapy for millions of people

Idk people Think I'm Insane, but if anyone has ever seen The Mechanic, it seems like it's beginning to be a possibility that these are actually murders being covered up as suicides just like Cobain

The second musical act, and first band I ever loved, was Linkin Park. From there I got into SOAD, then Slipknot, which made me want to actually play music myself. I owe a great deal to LP, and Bennington especially. A lot of people do. Depression is hell. RIP.

Linkin Park was my first band, I first listened to them when I was three years old. Since then, I grew up with them, and I loved everything they brought out (except maybe for Collision Course^^). I was so glad that they could make the Pop Album they wanted to make for years now, and it's sad that it doesn't get the recognition it deserves. Yesterday I was practizing with my band as I got the news from a friend of mine. I immediately stopped singing and cried for several hours. Chester is my childhood hero and I will miss him so hard.

I think this had something to do with his wife or family, i don't know. He had a shoot scheduled with the band the same day and apparently one of the band members I don't know who went to pick him up when he found police on the scene and was left absolutely shocked. What can drive a man to do this after he has been through so many things, survived made a successful career, made a happy family and he just decides to off himself one day. I am sure it's not the album's negative response or Chris's death, those are not good enough reasons to leave family and friends behind.

Suicide does not solve anything. All it does is transfer your pain onto other people. Bennington had 6 kids he barely saw, and now, all 6 of those children will have the unfortunate burden of living their life without their real father. The worst part, however, is that his extended family will have to learn that he *chose* to leave them. Bennington valued his own pain above that of his family, career, and friends. Linkin Park was on the verge of greatness until one of their visionaries opted to take the easy way out, and in turn, ruin the careers of a band of men who defined the early 2000's. Chester Bennington had a hard life. He was abused beyond any rational thought at a pivotal time in his life. Unfortunately, the abuse he suffered is not one a person can easily move on from. Haunting memories like those would bring any man to their knees, but the issue is how he coped with that pain. Chester caved in and for that robbed his family, friends, and fans of new experiences. Chester had so many hands reaching out to him, but instead chose to drown in his own misery. Saying that life is unfair is an understatement, but there were so many other ways to carry on. Chester's death shows how important a legacy is to fans. A person who inspired so many to rise up did the complete opposite. Rest in peace.

Or maybe he was just a pawn in this whole thing... I don't know. With cases like this one, we're probably never going to know the full truth.

... But it is. I feel terrible for him and the depression and pain he went through, but I'm never going to justify someone's decision to take their own life (barring like terminal illness and dire pain), and while it's imperative to be sympathetic and empathetic we can't be condoning his actions either. He had people who depended on him and needed him. He has millions of fans and kids who looked up to him. He had a family and was a father to 6 kids. Suicide is a topic that needs to be understood better and for us to be sympathetic and understanding, but without criticism the act becomes normalized and even accepted as a way out purely from the fact it's not being condoned, and it's not.

Suicide comes from a place of utter desperation and thus usually irrationality (from an outsiders perspective) and i don't think you can judge someones true character by it, not to mention in this case, his longstanding battles with mental illness. It might (and does) seem unbelievably selfish when judged objectively but it would be errant to do so imo.

Granted my "verge of greatness" comment was an overstatement, but the general point of my comment was to establish that Chester Bennington killing himself was the wrong way to go. Suicide is selfish no matter what anyone says. At the end of the day, the person is valuing their pain, suffering, and angst above everyone else. You are choosing to end your life whether or not you are depressed, sane, or delusional. The person is still killing them-self. Depression didn't tie the noose and drugs didn't kick the chair. The simple fact is Chester chose to leave this world because *he* didn't want to live for anything or anyone else. It doesn't matter he had infinite resources to help him. He didn't want to seek help because he felt that his life wasn't worth living.

"Indeed, but you don't think in a pretty rational way when you are on a severe episode of your depression"

I agree, but that's why it's our burden as a society to reinforce that suicide is wrong and that there are other options, we can't afford to have suicide be anything but a terrible selfish act, because if it isn't then it'll be much easier for it to prey on those with depression because they can then manipulate their irrationality into rationalizing suicide. Suicide should never be a rational solution and we need to enforce that ideal.

I don't think you should teach people with depression that suicide is "a selfish act", you'd only make them feel worse at themselves

You need to teach them on why it would be sad for their friends and families, on how that person still has a lot to live for, etc, etc... But simply calling it "a selfish act" isn't correct, it's not like when someone's about to commit suicide they don't think about their loved ones, but they think they'd be better without you or that they wouldn't miss you, in most cases

Depression is a terrible thing to suffer through. It's a hormonal imbalance in the brain and causes your entire body to fall victim to it. Even with medication, the emotional torment still lasts beyond treatment. Suicide easily weaves its way through depression because your in an entirely vulnerable state, and because of it, it feels like the only option. No one can fully understand how depression works because its different for each person. I may know the generals of the subject, but I can't begin to understand the depth because I haven't suffered in the way Chester or Chris suffered. Not teaching people suicide is selfish is like telling children fire is not dangerous. Suicide is an epidemic and should be treated as such. There's no easy way to explain it. No one should have to fall victim to depression and no one should ever have to resort to killing themselves. Chester and Chris didn't deserve to die. People sit around and misinterpret situations like these and use it to their advantage. You'll see a million other kids kill themselves just because of these musicians, then the media will turn it around and blame Chester and Chris. Vicious cycles like depression and suicide can only be avoided if people are willing. You can only help those who help themselves.

"I agree, but that's why it's our burden as a society to reinforce that suicide is wrong"

Do you really think anyone doesn't know this by now? Killing yourself goes against literally every single one of our natural instincts and you guys are totally undermining the level of anguish it takes to get someone to that point that they can totally disregard all that.

Suicide is irrational, and it's selfish. I can't articulate it any better than how JWT55 did. It's our job to not even bother trying to rationalize suicide, and cultivate the idea that it's just wrong. You don't even need to judge people who commit suicide nor condemn them. They had their reasons, they did it, it's already over for them. The best thing you can do is support their family and friends, and make awareness that suicide it's just not the way to go. Never.

Scream, 90% of people who commit suicide are estimated to have a diagnosed mental disorder. Of those disorders, the most common are anxiety and depression. As we all know, Chester Bennington was depressed. That being said, people who commit suicide have likely attempted to before. The general public is not well aware on whether or not Chester has, but we do know he has thought about committing suicide during the tenure of his past abuse. It's not abnormal to contemplate suicide, but it is concerning in the situation Chester Bennington was in. That lays a precedent to commit suicide, yet the time span between his suicide and abuse leaves a lot of variables. Taking into consideration there are twice as many suicides as homicides (in the U.S.) combined with the suicide rate jumping 13% between 1999 and 2010, and suicide being the third biggest cause of death in the U.S., it is our burden to enforce that suicide is indeed wrong. Taking it lightly doesn't solve a damn thing.

Chester was definitely not in a good place, and seemingly he did expressed his anguish several times: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZC_-zeWYMYo

But siding his personal situation, I guess it's much tougher to try and express yourself in an environment that benefits from your sufferings, dramas, meltdowns, wrongdoings, etc... and will make it very difficult to get proper help. Being a celebrity puts you in the worst position of all if you are fighting personal demons.

As far as someone getting low enough to commit suicide, the natural human response to pain is negative. People who attempt suicide have to condition themselves to want pain. People may want to die, but wanting pain is another. Most suicidal people build up a tolerance to pain through past experiences or injury. As we know, Chester has experienced both in his lifetime. When it comes to the desire to die, suicidal people feel their life is a burden and unworthy of others time. Chester has always felt this, as it was expressed in numerous songs.

EphemeralEternity, I can't fully agree with your comment because that's not exactly how suicide works. Granted some people are mentally ill to the point where they don't understand suicide in their current state, but your encouraging a slippery slope in which suicide is dimmed down to, "They tried and they died. Let's preserve their memory and learn from this example." Suicide is at an all time high during this millennium and it keeps getting higher. No one should have to accept suicide. Suicide is not an option and is not okay. It doesn't matter which circumstance that person is in. Giving up on life is never the right choice. All suicide does it push pain onto those around you. People who are suicidal never realize that life does get better and you can move on. Just because something pains you now doesn't mean it will in the future. Like I said, you can only help those who help themselves.

It's practically impossible to fully understand suicide and mental illness. Psychology can only go so far. The human mind will always and forever be an enigma. Chester Bennington's death hits hard because he was an influential person who deserved much better than what life gave him. His and Chris Cornell's death's are travesties because of how influential they were on the current generation. It's going to be hard not seeing Linkin Park after 17 years of non-stop hits. I wish Linkin Park and Chester Bennington ended better. Neither deserved this fate.

I know I've already posted a link to this somewhere earlier in the thread, but please I urge you, if you are a fan of Chester, Linkin Park or early 90's rock, to check out his old band: Grey Daze.

They were due to do a reunion show with Chester this september. I can't begin to explain how excited I was to hear this news as i've loved Grey Daze's music for years. And Chester's voice on these recordings is sonething else. The lyrics and delivery are an incrediably high standard for such an unknown band at the time. The music is catchy but somber and gloomy in places. It's a very unique sound.

The band deserves some recognition, at least on here. If someone reviewed this it would mean so much to fans. Please check them out: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DI_-TdVl2rQ

The problem Drop, is that depressed individuals literally lack the ability to feel the empathy and consideration for those around them. I've been there. The thought of pushing your pain onto those that love you never even crosses your mind. If anything, you resent those people because, despite all their love and admiration, they weren't able to help you or pull you out. Because if anyone or anything should have been able to, it would have been them.

That realization is what tips many over the edge - the thought that there is no fix, that there is no coming back. It takes incredible strength of will (that has yet to erode from decades of depression) to make the conscious decision to keep going. For most, that very idea never even presents itself. It's borderline mind-control, only nobody is in control.

Chesters death shouldn't be seen as normalizing suicide or accepting it, instead we should look at our own life and the people in it, and putting effort into reaching out to those that seem to be struggling. No one ever does anything till its too late.

His death should be a reminder that suicide is very real and you never truly know what a person is going through, which is why you should strive to make every human interaction a positive one, even seemingly insignificant ones like posting on sputnikmusic.com

Your point is valid. The lack of serotonin in the brain (during depression) is responsible for the lack of empathy, appetite, and sleep. You have those who long to feel nothing at all and those who long to feel something during this state, which is what creates all of these self-harming thoughts. You are right in the fact that resentment plays a very prominent role in depression especially in regards to those not understanding what you're going through. However, falling into hopelessness and self-pity isn't going to solve anything either. Making a conscious effort to move on isn't easy, but it is necessary for your sake as well as others. Suicide may seem like the only option, but your death makes the vicious cycle continue. People have this fantasy that suicide is some sort of redeeming quality that makes people miss you and carry on your legacy or suicide makes everyone suddenly care about you in a realistic way. This mindset is why a bunch of kids are getting involved in this culture where suicide and self-harm is a lifestyle. This is what takes away from those who are depressed and are literally suffering because you have masses of people pretending to be miserable for the sake of themselves.

"the positives of suicide?"

It ends the victim's pain. Now people will obviously give the "permanent solution to a temporary problem" spiel but Robin Williams also said that and it wasn't enough for him to stay. Sometimes the problem is permanent and people feel that suicide is the only way out. You could also give the spiel of "it affects others around you", but isn't it also selfish to keep someone alive who clearly doesn't want to be? To keep them a husk of a person just to alleviate your worry whilst they suffer.

It's a massive grey area.

I love the thought that "life will get better so push on."

I work in the business of helping people who have had a background of substance abuse start living a healthy and fulfilling life. In this field, you encounter someone every now and then who is too far gone or has a mental disability that they cannot help nor can anyone else. For the latter, sometimes no matter what chemical cocktail a doctor may prescribe, life doesn't get better. Watching a schizo-affected 22 year old who can't stop hearing voices and who only sees a straight jacket and a metal bed in his future despite the copious amounts of depakote continue to suffer and get worse, it becomes impossible to tell him it will get better. So please, don't always assume that someone will get better. It's a harsh reality we are facing in this day in age.

In all seriousness, you have to be careful how you talk to a struggling addict/alcoholic or someone with a mental health issue. Tough love can be the thing that inspires them to change, but it can also be the last straw for someone as well. You have to gauge the situation and also know the history of the person you're speaking with. If you go at someone who has a history filled with suicidal/homicidal ideations, you may want to handle the situation with kid gloves. Be honest, but don't push in any direction. Someone who is just constantly using the "Woe is me" excuse, that's who you go at hard. Dealing with that a bit this evening actually. Patient had a panic attack due to letting herself get overwhelmed with outside factors, which is common for her. I had to let the patient know that it's time to stop using her mother and father as excuses for letting her life slip away, and that it's time to take responsibility not only for her actions, but for her feelings as well. It's time to grow up basically.

It's such a huge issue. To handle it some people must shut down their empathy and attempt objectivity. Btw have some facts.

"WHO reports that in the last 45 years suicide rates have increased by 60% worldwide. Each year approximately one million people die from suicide, which represents a global mortality rate of 16 people per 100,000 or one death every 40 seconds. It is predicted that by 2020 the rate of death will increase to one every 20 seconds.
Mental health disorders (particularly depression and substance abuse) are associated with more than 90% of all cases of suicide."

Opinions shouldn't have even been involved in this thread. Regardless of anyone's personal feelings on suicide, look at the facts; six children are now fatherless, and an international music icon who influenced tens of millions of people, including a lot of us and a lot of the musicians in various metal and rock genres we listen to, is dead. He died at age 41 from ending his own life due to a multitude of mental factors. Honestly, One More Light was probably a cry for help and no-one, not even the people closest to him in his life had any way of knowing. The one person who Chester could really relate to was Chris Cornell, and Chester killed himself on what would have been Chris's next birthday.

The point I'm trying to make with all this? Only his bandmates, family members, close friends, doctors, and children could have even had an inkling of an idea of what he was going through. The epidemic of suicide is a horrible problem, and way more attention needs to be paid to it, but the blatant trashing of this man and his life that I've seen in this thread is not the way to go about addressing the very real (and worryingly increasing) problem of suicide (especially among musicians).

Respect the dead. Respect their family, respect their friends. Leave politics and opinions out of Chester's situation, and let the family grieve.

Although you are both correct, Chester Bennington's suicide is very impactful, and much like Chris Cornell's suicide, it has hit listeners personally. We've lost two visionaries before their time due to one of the most infectious illnesses of our generation. It's a shame we've had to lose so many musicians to a mental and emotional prison. Depression is a hand around your neck that grips tighter and tighter, and while others learn to breathe, some unfortunately choke and grow lost in their infinite darkness. Although many of us never thought the day would come, Chris and Chester join the statistics that serves as one of societies greatest faults. As Chester Bennington said himself, "Oh, and you're angry, and you should be, it's not fair. Just 'cause you can't see it, doesn't mean it isn't there."

Simply put, it's not fair. Linkin Park inspired people of all genres. None of us knew him personally, but its just angering to have a voice you've heard everyday of your life go silent. Linkin Park was one of those bands listeners literally grew up hearing. It's so strange to write, but its true. Its hard, with most Linkin Park fans entering into adulthood, not see that anymore. Fans aged with the band and the band aged with its fans. His death also rallies against everything the band stood for, which is the irony of it all. It shakes fans to their core to have a singer who told them the opposite fall into that vicious cycle. That's where most of the anger spurs from.

Replace angering with lost and you've summed up my feelings.

As with the majority of LP fans, Chester was the voice of my youth. I didn't listen to much music until high school, but when I finally did, you bet Hybrid Theory and Meteora were on constant repeat. Linkin Park was the band that got me into music, and music is an absolute massive part of my life. I can't exactly put into words what this band, and those albums and lyrics mean to me. When I heard this news a couple days ago, I didn't believe it. I didn't want to believe it. For years, all I could do was relate to the lyrics, and the words Chester and Mike spoke on those records, they resonate with me to this day, as I expect them to for my entire life. My thoughts are with his family, friends, and loved ones in this heartbreaking time. I hope that wherever he may be, he finally has found peace, and true happiness. Rest in peace Chester, you are the voice of my generation, and you will be missed.

i think it's because he literally sang about how he felt. hybrid theory and meteora were a dump of his angst of his troubled youth clearly displayed. ...in fact too clearly that it seemed sophomoric and simplistic. but that's what he's been doing the whole time. once he didn't feel as angsty anymore and tried to be positive or experimental he's been getting the shit end of the stick from fans and critics

A couple of days later this is turning into a huge bummer for me. I never realized what an impact his music had on my taste in music while growing up, and "finding" LP before they were on the radio is what set me on the path that led me to Sputnik today. Dang.

Agreed with Typhoon too. Lyrics that seems faux-edgy back then are now a little more legitimate. Very sad indeed.

Most listeners find it easier to write off lyrics as phony rather than genuine. Why that is boggles my mind, but Linkin Park always had genuine lyrics in my opinion. Linkin Park was an easy target for many because of their nu-metal style. Nu-metal had a bad reputation for relying on "angsty" lyrics and a basic music to go along with it. Linkin Park personified that style, and for that reason, became a heat magnet. Now that Chester is gone, people are realizing that Linkin Park *always* meant what they said. There's a reason why Linkin Park seldom played "Breaking the Habit" live.

"Respect the dead. Respect their family, respect their friends. Leave politics and opinions out of Chester's situation, and let the family grieve."

ppl always say this kind of thing after tragedies but the fact is these things have to be discussed at some point. you can't extract politics out of these kinds of things, that's just another way of framing the situation in an individualistic manner which honestly is a political act in itself. this is some niche music website not his eulogy & personally i don't feel it takes away from the grieving to talk about it. it's relevant

Cornell and Bennington were about to take down a secret pedo ring of elites and expose them. they were a part of a charity organization against child trafficking and got ahold of some top secret info and were both murdered because the secretive group found out about it. killed in the same exact manner.

but no one wants to ever think this is a plausible possibility just like the fact Cobain was murdered way back when. people just accept what the news tells them. pure ignorance.

THANK YOU

Thing is when you say that people call you lazy or you didn't try hard enough in life to get the things you want. Sometimes your mind just makes you feel like a husk of a person and it makes it hard to escape from, especially when people take you on a guilt trip. We need to stop telling kids that life is amazing, life can fucking suck at times and we have to prepare them for that.

In their official statement LP stated Chester left an irreplaceable void, so I whole-heartedly believe they're gonna end LP once they've finished grieving his death. I just don't see an LP without him and the hassle of getting a new vocalist is too much.

Honestly, I've always thought Spencer Sotelo was cut from a fairly similar cloth to Chester as a vocalist, in both tone and delivery, and it's nice to see Periphery paying tribute to him. Whether or not Spencer should 'replace' him in LP is another question.

I guess the only thing LP can really do now is to recognise that Chester can't be replaced and at least take a break, if not call it quits for good. They've had a good run (17+ years and 7 albums, plus various other projects) and their influence can't be easily understated, so now is as good a time as any.

Agree, but the issue is that knowing mike shinoda he won't take a long break, maybe in a year or 2 he will be working with fort minor and another project, maybe a fort minor with mike and joe could work very well.

If they replace chester for spencer or jon howard and if their next record is something rock oriented it will be great, but mike is the one that has the control and he usually wants to do a lot of stuff that is not exactly rock related and I don't how spencer or jon could react. Tons of scene and core kids are making some shitty propositions for chester's replacement, those pussies are proposing vocalists like tyler carter, dennis shafarostov or kellin and that will be the worst mistake ever. Still it seems right now that they are not going to continue with linkin park in a long long time and that's the best

Depending on the relationship they had with Chester, I don't see them picking back up until at least January. I'd be shocked if they were to return any sooner. Considering all of the legal mess they're going to go through, finances, and record labels, this is going to be a long process even if they are emotionally stable enough to carry on with their music. Honestly, Linkin Park has nothing else to prove. They really should just hang it up. Fort Minor will allow them to work a lighter schedule and still produce music. If not Fort Minor, maybe some other super-group. Either way, there's nothing else they can do. Linkin Park just needs to retire.

“Capitalist realism insists on treating mental health as if it were a natural fact, like weather (but, then again, weather is no longer a natural fact so much as a political-economic effect). In the 1960s and 1970s, radical theory and politics (Laing, Foucault, Deleuze and Guattari, etc.) coalesced around extreme mental conditions such as schizophrenia, arguing, for instance, that madness was not a natural, but a political, category. But what is needed now is a politicization of much more common disorders. Indeed, it is their very commonness which is the issue: in Britain, depression is now the condition that is most treated by the NHS. In his book The Selfish Capitalist, Oliver James has convincingly posited a correlation between rising rates of mental distress and the neoliberal mode of capitalism practiced in countries like Britain, the USA and Australia. In line with James’s claims, I want to argue that it is necessary to reframe the growing problem of stress (and distress) in capitalist societies. Instead of treating it as incumbent on individuals to resolve their own psychological distress, instead, that is, of accepting the vast privatization of stress that has taken place over the last thirty years, we need to ask: how has it become acceptable that so many people, and especially so many young people, are ill?”

As far as the argument of Capitalism goes, I would like to quote Milton Friedman in saying, "There's no such thing as a free lunch." Aside from that, mental illness has always played a key factor in neo-liberal/communist societies as well as fascist societies. Just look at Nazi Germany way back in World War II. All of the horror's those people witnessed day in and day out screwed their mental state for years to come. Fast forward to modern years and look at the Middle East. Those people are living a nightmare because every inch of their village is a war zone. Any political agenda that has the prefix of "neo" in the title is guaranteed to be something terrible. There has to be a balance of some sort. Mental disabilities should be a factor in politics because mental illness has taken a backseat since the 70's. There's no excuse for suicides ranking as the 3rd leading cause of death in America and the lack of mental health programs.

The only album I've ever heard that I would give a 5 is Agalloch's The Mantle. But most days it sits at a 4.5

¯_(ツ)_/¯

Also, you cannot assume that musicians who do not know you will share the same musical opinions as you.

For all we know, that slimeball from Shining really likes Kelly Clarkson, but is too afraid to admit it.

Well is not my problem that rating LP with a 5 makes angry certain cunts which can't give a counter argument, if you are so mature you should ignore what I am saying or at least you should come with a more polished comment explaining why LP sucks, but your comment is more juvenile and stupid than I thought, suck it

Well mike portnoy praised chester vocals, rob flynn said that HT and Meteora were masterpieces, dave gahan and depeche mode respected LP, even mike shinoda worked with that band for a remixof enjoy the silence.

I can't even listen to LP at the moment. Anytime Chetser's vocals come it's like oh shit these lyrics just got way too real. Although very sophomoric at times, he was speaking from the heart apparently.

Although, I only listen(ed) to the first 2, so I don't if the lyrics are any different with the newer stuff

Are we calling normal people "LP detractors" now? That seems needlessly confusing. You people are easier to count.

the piano/vocal rendition of Crawling from the last show is just devastating. Always thought that song was an angsty joke but the bare-bones version of it kills me.

"Seriously though, how is it not obvious that most people saying those things are joking and/or trolling."
In my nightly prayers, I asked God this question. He says it will make the weak less able to reproduce.

"I can't even listen to LP at the moment. Anytime Chetser's vocals come it's like oh shit these lyrics just got way too real."
Wut, this improves the music so much. We went from hearing trendy, angsty depression to actual suicidal pain. You gotta love it.

If you think the acoustic version of "Crawling" was haunting, wait until you hear the acoustic version of "One More Light."

Looks like the band is releasing a live album of songs from the One More Light tour in England. I'm really excited to hear Chester's last performances in a higher quality than fan recordings on youtube.

Been rewatching the tribute show this evening and can’t love it any fucking more.
Incredible show and an amazing display of respect for Chester.
