Linkin Park cancel US tour after singer Chester Bennington's death — Sky News


Many have also pointed out that Bennington's death was on the same day as his late friend, Chris Cornell's birthday.

Bennington was found dead in Los Angeles on Thursday and authorities are investigating the case as a possible suicide. He reportedly committed suicide by hanging. I thought that was like the dream, man, the American dream. "The Cornell family is overwhelmed by the heartbreaking news about Chester Bennington which tragically comes so soon after their family's own loss", the message read. Bennington performed at his funeral and honored him via a post on social media after his death, saying that he "can't imagine a world" without him in it. Cornell's widow, Vicky Cornell, tweeted yesterday: "Just when I thought my heart couldn't break any more.I love you". That's what that song's about - that time when you consciously look at that. No toxicology report has been carried out as of yet and other reports have indicated that a partially drunk bottle of alcohol was in the room that the singer had died in. The title song from the album included the lines, "Who cares if one more light goes out?/In a sky of a million stars/It flickers, flickers/Well I do".

Winter said an autopsy was pending and toxicology tests were also likely to be carried out.

Bennington had opened up in recent years about his rough childhood in Arizona.

Bennington's band found success in 2000 with their album "Hybrid Theory" with Bennington's heartfelt vocals leading the way. He was married with six children.

Chester Bennington has died after hanging himself, it has been reported.

Linkin Park was one of the key bands in the movement of nu metal, blending Bennington's angry, growling voice with pop structures and rapping by Shinoda. "I had no idea that I had been such a nightmare", he said.

The leader of Linkin Park is well hanged in his home.
