One year ago today, musician Chester Bennington passed away.
The five remaining members of Linkin Park posted this statement on their social media today:
“To our brother Chester,
It has been a year since your passing—a surreal rotation of grief, heartbreak, refusal, and recognition. And yet it sill feels like you are close by, surrounding us with your memory and your light. Your one-of-a-kind spirit has authored an indelible imprint on our hearts—our jokes, our joy, and our tenderness.
Eternally grateful for the love, life, and creative passion you shared with us and the world. We miss you more than words can express.
M, J, D, R, B”
Numerous public memorials will be taking place around the world this week in memoriam. You can find a complete list here.
