This is the hardest post I've ever had to make and I'm writing it through tears, but after initial reports from TMZ earlier today it has been confirmed that tragically Chester Bennington has passed away. Reports suggest Chester died by suicide, with his body being discovered around 9AM PST today on July 20 2017. Associated Press confirmed the reports via a Los Angeles coroner today as they continue to investigate the details. Mike Shinoda followed this up with a confirmation on Twitter. Our hearts break for Chester's family, friends and Linkin Park. We can't imagine what they must be going through. We love you, Chester. RIP.
