      These songs just capture the moment but “Leave out all the rest” feels more depressing to listen to right now. RIP CHESTER BENNINGTON… defined the infusion of rock and pop and other genres and inspired so many other artists. You will be missed

      @ King Bey I know someone who sees a shrink every week and takes anti-depressants and still wants to commit suicide. Its such a terrible disease..

      RIP Chester.

    “I tried so hard and got so far
    But in the end, it doesn’t even matter
    I had to fall to lose it all
    But in the end, it doesn’t even matter’

    This time, the end really does matter
    Wish you were here Chester Bennington….

    RIP Chester, ?? The good pillars of heavy rock are almost gone.

    His death reminded me of Kurt and Chris Cornell. This is extremely sad!

    “When my time comes forget the wrong that I’ve done, help me leave behind some reasons to be missed. And don’t resent me, and when you’re feeling empty, keep me in your memory & leave out all the rest. Leave out all the rest” Chester Bennington

    Am I the only one that is just hearing about him and his music? After encore, I dunno what other tracks or album they released.That sad.
    life has been too rosy for him, that’d the reason killing himself is the best way out. I am sorry but I don’t feel bad he killed himself. If it was possible, he should have exchanged his life with that of Bradley Lowery.

      Encore is Jay Z’s song. His/theirs (Linkin Park) is Numb and the collaboration is Numb/Encore. “In the End” is even more popular than the standalone song Numb and the collabo Numb/Encore. They were churning out hit songs every time their albums dropped. They just toured Europe and it was heavy. Stormzy came on to sing with them in London at the start of the month.

      Their latest album One More Light topped the Billboard charts when t dropped in May. Listening to all the songs on that album tells a story of all the struggling. Very sad. The first one is Nobody Can Save Me.

      Mike Shinoda is the most popular of the lot but ChesterBe had the voice and was the front man. They were doing their own thing in the rock world. Their fans know them and know their songs 🙂

      Life was never rosy for him and he always spoke about his struggles. Forget the money and the fame. Depression has no boundaries. These things are hard to explain.

      His parents got divorced when he was really young, he had a history of drugs and sexual abuse as a child. He had a rough time growing up.

    Shouldn’t it be ‘hung’ ? BN….sigh.
    It’s a pity that some of the most talented ppl are plagued with depression. Their songs speak their pain.

      Hanged – death by hanging.
      Hung – hung a picture, hung my clothes, I hung out with my friends.

      BN is correct this time. 🙂

    Suicide is a demonic act. Satan is on a mission, don’t succumb to him. He’s destructive. Surrender to Christ. It’s easier said than done but allow Christ in.
    A close friend of mine recently revealed that his dad took his own life. He was a well known medical doctor in his community, one of the most jovial, charismatic and caring man you will ever meet. Very handsome. His patients speak highly of him. I’m still trying to wrap my head around it.
    This family are well respected in their city and the nigerian community. My friend followed his parent’s footstep, both parent are medical doctors and he’s currently doing his residency. It’s been a secret about the cause of his dad’s death since suicide is not freely talked about among Nigerians.
    I’ve been numb since he told me. I can’t help but think what will cause a successful, well loved doctor with beautiful, ambitious, intelligent wife and children to take his own life? This family looks perfect from outside and has been used as an example to others. Sigh

    The demon that drive some all this oyibo celebrities to commit suicide is in rampage, what do you expect, many of them are into yoga, where they ve demonic guidance, the music they sing too. I don’t see any RIP here, we both know where this Man is, my pain is that it is eternity, heaven and hell is real people, make a wise choice.

      Your comment is insensitive and stupid at the same time.

      I am Nigerian. I suffered depression for many years over the loss of my mother. By the grace of God I got out of it. Though, I miss and still think about her every day. Then I suffered another for over a year because of a failed relationship. I only recently got out of it too. And yes, I still think about him.
      During these dark times, I felt hopeless, and almost took my life. I slept more and more, hoping never to wake up. I preferred dark room, I always kept the curtain blind closed. I was always sick. Lost so much weight. Was diagnosed with ulcer
