It’s been three years since Chester Bennington passed away and in the past few weeks, we’ve seen that he remains relevant and loved.
Three years ago today (July 20th, 2017), the world was shocked when news of Chester Bennington’s suicide was announced. In the days and weeks that followed, we not only learned of his personal struggles with addiction and depression, but also the lasting and meaningful impact he had on the lives of not only his friends and loved ones, but also his legion of fans.
Shocked and heartbroken, but it’s true. An official statement will come out as soon as we have one.
