Linkin Park’s Music Video Released Within Moments of Chester Bennington’s Death
Linkin Park released a music video within minutes of the discovery of band member, Chester Bennington’s body, reports Complex. Bennington was 41 years old.
TMZ originally reported that the cause of death was suicide from hanging. Bennington’s wife discovered the body early Thursday morning at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in Los Angeles County. The music video was apparently released by Linkin Park’s team before learning about the untimely death. After news broke, heartfelt posts from musicians and fans began to flood social media channels.
Bennington was a front man for Linkin Park and had struggled with addiction to drugs and alcohol for years. He opened up about his troubled childhood in a 2014 interview, describing the angst he felt from his parents’ divorce and molestation by a friend when he was only 7 or 8 years old.
The music video for their song “Talking To Myself” went live at 9:01am, landing on YouTube and the band’s Twitter. The single is from their album, One More Light, released earlier this year.
