Their debut album Hybrid Theory was released in 2000 where they fused a number of genres like hip hop, pop, and rock to make their unique sound. Bennington was age 41 at the time of his death. The last time I saw you, you gave us chills. You let NERD open for you in Germany, we’ll never forget that show; YOU CRUSHED IT. Your essence is amongst the stars. Condolences his family and friends and Linkin Park ?? Literally the most impressive talent I've ever seen live! Vocal beast! An official statement will come out as soon as we have one. Your essence is amongst the stars. Perhaps that was his way of crying for help but seems no one took notice. It’s still unclear why Chester Bennington would commit suicide but he struggled with alcohol and drug abuse for years and even said in a previous interview that he has contemplate suicide in the past. Tragic ending. Rest now.”
