Linkin Park identik dengan frontman mereka Chester Bennington dan Mike Shinoda. Namun sayangnya, kabar yang telah kita tahu sebelumnya, Chester telah tiada. Bagaimana dengan nasib band Linkin Park dan personel lainnya?

Linkin Park menulis surat yang ditujukan kepada mendiang Chester yang berisi tentang kehilangan dan masa depan Linkin Park.

Pointnya adalah:

  • Kesedihan yang sangat mendalam dan prihatin dengan istri dan anak yang ditinggalkan.
  • Menurut anggota band, Chester adalah orang yang lucu, ambisius, kreatif, baik hati, murah hati.
  • Mereka tidak tahu jalan apa yang akan ditempuh masa depan, mereka menyadari bahwa perjalanan band dipermudah oleh Chester.

Dear Chester,

Our hearts are broken. The shockwaves of grief and denial are still sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened.

You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realized. In the past few days, we’ve seen an outpouring of love and support, both public and private, from around the world. Talinda and the family appreciate it, and want the world to know that you were the best husband, son, and father; the family will never be whole without you.

Talking with you about the years ahead together, your excitement was infectious. Your absence leaves a void that can never be filled—a boisterous, funny, ambitious, creative, kind, generous voice in the room is missing. We’re trying to remind ourselves that the demons who took you away from us were always part of the deal. After all, it was the way you sang about those demons that made everyone fall in love with you in the first place. You fearlessly put them on display, and in doing so, brought us together and taught us to be more human. You had the biggest heart, and managed to wear it on your sleeve.
Our love for making and performing music is inextinguishable. While we don’t know what path our future may take, we know that each of our lives was made better by you. Thank you for that gift. We love you, and miss you so much.
Until we see you again,


Linkin Park telah membatalkan jadwal tour dunia bertajuk “One More Light” di seluruh Amerika Serikat bulan ini bersama Blink 182 dan jadwal konser di Asia pada akhir tahun 2017 juga tidak mungkin terlaksana.

Apakah Linkin Park bubar atau mencari vokalis baru pengganti Chester Bennington?

Stay tuned!
