Fans were still grieving this morning over the death of Soundgarden's frontman Chris Cornell who would have celebrated his 53rd birthday today. In addition to this news, Linkin Park's frontman Chester Bennington took his life this morning after committing suicide at his home in Los Angeles.
According to many sources, Bennington had battled drug addiction and depression for many years. Bennington may have also been triggered when his good friend Chris Cornell had passed away on May 18, 2017.
The news today only makes Linkin Park's recent Jimmy Kimmel Live! performance that much more eery. Bennington had dedicated his singing of “One More Light” to his late friend Chris Cornell. “We were going to come out and play ‘Heavy’ first, but in light of our dear friend Chris Cornell passing away, we decided to play our song ‘One More Light’ in honor of him to start this off. We love you, Chris,” said Bennington.
