I just ran into the studio. I was late because of an earlier broadcast from Panera Bread for The Edge’s ticket take over. It was going to be a fun day. Within two minutes of putting on my headphones, I saw a post from TMZ reporting that Chester Bennington, lead singer of Linkin Park has taken his own life. The same Chester Bennington that sat in this room, performed and spoke about the future just a couple of months ago. I’m in shock. I hate being the bearer of bad news, and this news just breaks my heart. Bennington and Cornell were close, today is Chris Cornell’s birthday. Chris Cornell took his own life just over two months ago. TMZ reports Bennington was found in his home in Palos Verdes in Los Angelas just before 9 am. Be there for each other, because this is a huge loss. My thoughts are with those close to him and all fans of his art. I’ll keep you updated.
Last time Chester was at the edge.
