Today the world awoke to a heartbreaking news in the history of music — rock icon Chester Bennington is dead. The lead singer of acclaimed rock band Linkin Park reportedly hanged himself in his private home in L.A. yesterday, July 20. Coincidentally, it should have been his close friend, Chris Cornell’s 53rd birthday. Cornell’s suicide two months ago greatly affected Bennington and the latter dedicated their song One More Light from their latest album of the same title, for his dear friend.

Now the whole world mourns for the loss of yet another inspiring artist. People from all walks of life are flooding the internet sharing their shock, heartbreak, and sorrow, including Bennington’s bandmates:

Rest in peace, Chester Bennington. You’ve truly made an impact in our lives through your music.
