What the fuck this is shocking
Heartbroken is the right word for it.
I am so sad.
I am on vacation and when I read the news I started crying. First time my GF has seen me cry and it is hard to explain excatly why this is so devastating.
I don't know what to do with myself...I can't believe this is happening....I feel sick to my stomach.
I will never forget the first Linkin Park song I heard was Numb....that voice...
We love you, Chester.
There's nothing we can do. Except be sad. And angry. And show that that he mattered.
We have to be sad. We have to be angry. That's how you know that he had an impact and mattered.
Got the chance to say hi and meet him again earlier this month. There was no way that you could guess this would happen based on how he was.
We talked about the performance in Sweden and how beautiful the performance of Breaking The Habit was at that show.
"Nice to see you" ... the last ever words I said to him.
We love you Chester
I knew this day would come eventually, in 30 or 40 years... I'm not ready for that day to be today.
Rest in peace, Chester.
To Mike, Joe, Dave, Brad, Rob, the team that has been with the band all these years, I'm sorry for your loss. I hope that together you can all be strong, for yourselves and for each other.
Edit: Somehow missed Rob's name before.
I feel like there are words I have to say, but I can't manage to get them all right in my head. Like so many others have said, for all these years it was Linkin Park, through Chester's voice, saying what I felt.
I listened to the whole One More Light album again. So much of it feels like Chester's goodbye letter to the world, the words and the emotions feel so right. I know it's not, but... maybe it can be. "Sharp Edges" is such a poignant end to the album, and to Chester's legacy. It's happy and hopeful - the person he always was and who I'll always remember him as - and shares a message of learning from your mistakes, and from pain.
I didn't expect this to be so hard for me. Losing Chester feels like losing a friend, and there's a part of me that doesn't know where to go from here. But I have hope for the future, and the strength to make it through. Linkin Park, Chester, you gave that to me, and nothing can take that away.
I haven't been following the band in recent times but today I listened to the new video clip that came up on Youtube without hearing the news.
An hour later I see this...
I am much more affected than I thought I would be but then I realized their music has been with me for over fifteen years.
My thoughts go to his family, friends and all fans.
And to Chester, thank you for what you gave me us and helped us go through with.
I can't stop crying.
Rest in peace chester. You'll always be my favorite singer.
I don't even know what to say. Heartbroken.
I sincerely hope for the best for his family, and Linkin Park. We are all here for you.
Rest in Peace, Chester.
Absolutely fucking heartbroken. I don't even know where to begin
No words can explain what I feel now. But wow. It's a dark day today.
No words can explain how I feel, like a close friend died. I can't accept this, can't accept the fact that we'll never hear him sing or at the concert. My mind can't process this.
I saw the news minutes ago and was terribly shocked. I'm sure Chester willalways be remembered as one of the best singers of the 2000s.
My thoughts and prayers go to Chester's family, friends and Linkin Park. I will always be a Linkin Park fan and remember the day I saw them live, which I hope wasn't one of the last Linkin Park shows.
Rest in peace, Chester.
Rest in Piece Chester
All the best to his family
Totally, totally devastated. He was the best and I am who I am because of his music.
I never thought in a million years that we as fans and Linkin Park would ever have to go through something like this. I'm so devastated.
I'm crying. I just can't comprehend the magnitude of this tragedy. OML was the last album. It's all over. The reason we are on this site, I mean. It's all over.
How will I be able to listen to ATS again?
Speechless. This band means so much to me. To all of us. I'm completely shattered. Rest in peace, you were a good man.
This is a dark day. I know that I don't realize this yet and I don't have any tears right now. But they will come as soon as I understand the impact of his loss. I'm 32 and a hardcore fan since I was 16...half my life. Their music IS the most important thing in my life.
I'm thinking of Talinda, his kids, band-mates and friends. This is true horror. We need to stay strong for the ones that loves us.
