Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington has committed suicide

Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington has committed suicide at age 41. TMZ first reported that Bennington hanged himself at his Palos Verdes residence on Thursday, July 20, after which the L.A. County coroner confirmed to Associated Press that Bennington had died. Linkin Park bandmate Mike Shinoda tweeted “shocked and heartbroken, but it’s true. An official statement will come out as soon as we have one.”

Bennington struggled with drug and alcohol addictions at various times  during his life. He spoke openly about both, as well as about being molested by an older man when he was a child. Bennington was married and is survived by six children.  In 1999, he joined Linkin Park, which had been founded by high school friends Shinoda and Brad Delson in 1996.
