Sad news.  My friend was a huge fan and travel the country to see them - I remember putting him up more than once so he could come and see Afghan Whigs.

I was never that big a fan but that 1965 album was a big deal to me in the mid-00s. i know some people here loved them.

Just about to post same:

Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington has died aged 41, LA County Coroner says.
The coroner said Bennington apparently hanged himself. His body was found at a private home in the county at 09:00 local time (17:00 GMT) on Thursday.
Bennington was said to be close to Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell, who took his own life in May.
Formed in 1996, Linkin Park has sold more than 70 million albums worldwide and has two Grammy Awards.
The band had a string of hits including Faint, In The End and Crawling, and collaborated with the rapper Jay-Z.
Its album Meteora topped the Billboard 200 chart in 2003 and is regarded as one of the biggest indie rock records of all time.
Bennington leaves a wife, and six children from two marriages.
He is said to have struggled for years with alcohol and drug abuse, and has talked in the past about suicide as a result of being a victim of abuse as a child.

It does seem that way. Cornell and Bennington were friends and it's said that Cornell's death hit Chester hard. Seems too crazily timed to be a coincidence.  :(

I didn't listen to LP much past Meteroa, but I will say that album was one of my favorites as a young teenager. Definitely sad news today.

The Chester Bennington news kills me. Linkin Park were one of my favorite bands as a teenager and I still followed them to this day. I would have gone to their concert next week had I not already racked up my credit card with 4 U2 shows when tour dates were announced back in the Spring. I thought with a new album out, I would have another chance to see them as they continued to promote the album.

The last time I saw Chester was when he was fronting STP at my local radio stations yearly festival. He held my hand and sang to me.

This one is hard to swallow.

wow! what a special moment to have

A moment that almost didn't happen. It was an outdoor show and it started to thunderstorm so they stopped the show for an hour during the changeover before STP came on. My boyfriend wanted to leave and I kept asking him for 15 more minutes. Thankfully they restarted before he got really impatient and left without me.

I remind as often as I can that without me insisting we stayed, that would have never happened. Slash and Miles Kennedy were headlining that night and I also got a setlist from Slash.
