Nothing can fathom of just how Chester meant to me. He was such an inspiration. Mentor in his lyrics. And helped me through some pretty messed up things in my life. I will always remember his beautiful voice. Always, R.I.P Chester Bennington.

For me Chester was the force of rebirth.

He was a phoenix who rose from his ashes after every defeat.

And I looked at him as an example when I was in trouble.

He meant so much to me, words are not enough.

This has been so hard for me to write. I begin writing, then I stop, then I begin again and the I choke. But I am pushing through because Chester Bennington has been such a huge inspiration to me. They all are.



I remember Linkin Park was the first band that I ever really got into, I remembered back in 2000 I was really young, dad was saying to me 'watch this band, I think you would really like them' and surely enough I was captivated by the movement in their music and seeing Linkin Park for the first time in their video 'One Step Closer' I was completely hooked. Buying their first album and showing it off all to my friends who really liked them too just goes to show that Linkin Park is one of those bands that captivate anyone that listens to them from the get go.



I had the pleasure of seeing them in concert twice and consider myself very, very lucky that I have been able to see them live as not many have seen them:( they are unbelievable live as there is nothing best to describe the way they put on a show and pull the audience in the way they do. I also had the pleasure of meeting Chester too at a meet and greet. He was such a friendly guy, you wouldn't think he was this big rock star, any of them for that matter, as they were all such down to earth guys. His smile was so warm and friendly. I will never forget that smile when I got to meet him. Finally after so many years.



I remember the day that he had passed, I was at work and on my lunch break I had several missed phone calls, from my partner, friends and mum. I thought something bad had happened and when I called my partner back I realised my first thought of something bad happening all came true. I thought it was a joke, shamefully admitting I thought it was a hoax, that it wasn't real, I was trying to convince myself that it was just some cruel prank and that someone was out to get me. But I was so wrong. I was so heart broken I had no idea how I pushed through my shift that morning with out crying.



I'm sorry for rambling...I really am...but Chester and Linkin Park have been their for me when no one else wasn't. Through my teenage years of my depression, my anxiety, trying to fit in and the family and friend deaths that have shaken me up, I always traced my roots back to Linkin Park and listening to their music helped me through my darkest days. Chester screamed for those that couldn't scream for themselves, including me. Now he is no longer in suffering. <3



I miss him so much, it's like loosing apart of your childhood and I feel as though I lost a big part of my childhood that day when I heard he had passed away.



Fly high Chester, screams like a demon, sings like an angel.

Rest in Peace, Chester Bennington. You will never be forgotten <3

It’s kind of hard to put into words the feelings I have about this band, and Chester in general. I remember the first time I listened to the band, my brother had burned me a copy of their first album Hybrid Theory back in 2000 and instantly fell in love. Linkin Park instantly became my favorite band and I often had Hybrid Theory in my CD player when I was at home and when I was on school trips.


Their songs helped me through so much in my life, and I’ve made so many wonderful lifelong friends because of the wonderful fans of the band.


Chester was always an inspiration of mine, with his willingness to talk about the problems he suffered as a kid, and his strength he had with moving on and not letting his past get the better of him. Linkin Park was the first FanFiction fandom that I actually religiously wrote and read about and definitely helped me express myself through writing.


I was devastated when I first heard the news of Chester’s passing, I was at work and couldn’t stop crying. I will never forget the impact the band has had on my life, and they will always continue to be my favorite band no matter what happens in the future. It really warms my head when I see all of the fans reaching out and supporting all of Chester’s friends and family through this tragic time and I know we will all continue to be there to each other as the years pass.

Linkin Park is the first band I ever gained friendships from, and that will always stand out to me. As for Chester, I think about him daily. Because of him, I am forever changed, and I will always be grateful for that. A piece of him will always exist in my mind and in my writing. I've based more characters off of him (in one way or another) than anyone else in the world, and continue to do so. He was a source of love, light, laughter, creativity, and struggle, and I miss him deeply. In the many journeys of life, he has gone ahead of us on this one.
