Linkin Park Lead Singer Chester Bennington Commits Suicide
According to the report, the singer “hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates,” and was discovered on Thursday morning (Jul. 20). He was married with six children from two wives, and struggled openly with drugs and alcohol.
“I had a choice between stopping drinking and dying. I did some counseling with the guys and they really opened up and told me how they felt. I had no idea that I had been such a nightmare,” he told Metal Hammer at the end of 2016.
