Chester Bennington’s Bandmate Matt Sorum Speaks Up: “Please Don’t Blame Him”

Following the sudden death of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, Ex-GN’R drummer Matt Sorum, who was also Chester Bennington’s bandmate in the King of Chaos supergroup, shared the following note via his Facebook page: “Devastated and heartbroken today on hearing of dear friend and bandmate Chester Bennington’s passing . We were only speaking yesterday and planning future gigs together . I am in shock . He was always upbeat and made everyone around him feel special . Not just fellow musicians but fans as well . Giving himself openly . As people that live in the spotlight this can be daunting and take its toll behind closed doors after the lights go down . As another recovering addict I related this to Chester on many occasions . Its hard to understand when from the outside our job seems easy and that we have everything. As we know now with the loss of so many greats to drugs , Alcohol and the Depression that sets in …even in Sobriety . The feelings are raw and my brother Chester struggled like so many of my other friends that have lost the battle to the overwhelming fear that comes with this disease. The only thing we can do is try and communicate our feelings through interacting and communicating through self-help groups and loved ones . Please don’t blame him , the disease wants us dead . Depression and anxiety is the after effect of years of hard living and running from these Demons and feelings. I loved Chester …he was kind and always professional in every situation . He would take any challenge . I threw songs at him last minute and he would rise to the occasion. Being the great showman and the voice he had , he was capable of so much . The talent was boundless and he was a perfectionist . For us performers the rest of real life is the hardest part . 6 kids and a family was his life blood and responsibility. People will ask .. How could he leave them ?? The pain must have been so deep .. I pray for his wife and children and that they can find peace through this terrible tragedy. He bared his soul to the world and we received his gift . His gift will live on because the music remains . I love you Chester and will always miss you , The World will miss you …but your presence here will never be forgotten . You touched me as you touched so many ..and for that I am eternally grateful 💔 Rest Now Sweet Soul, Your Brother , Matt”

Mike Shinoda & Musicians Respond to Chester Bennington’s Death

Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park has responded to the death of bandmate Chester Bennington. The internet has been taken over by the tragic and very unexpected death of Bennington. See the responses from artists below.

my heart hurts in ways i never thought it could. 💔💔 i heard the news when i was driving in the car with my daughter and i couldn’t even finish the drive. i pulled over and lost my shit. i remember watching u perform “crawling” stripped down with just mike shinoda playing the keys in Poland when we did that show together the other week, and your voice spoke to my soul. im re-living that moment now because that’s how u deserve to be remembered: a voice for those who wanted to scream out, who had pain and no way of expressing it. u were that for me since 11 years old and i had the honor to become friends with u and share the stage with you, but i never got to say thank you. You guys invited me on tour this summer and it was the happiest I’ve felt in my career, I’m sad to not be able to see it happen, but mostly just sad for music, the linkin park family, and the fans – u were one of the greatest frontmen of a band to ever live and i just want u, wherever u are, to feel loved and to be happy. thanks for everything Chester. love.
