Though Chester Bennington took his life two years ago, his fans don’t seem to have gotten over the loss of their beloved star. The Linkin Park icon is still missed, they say.
Two years ago, on this day, the world lost a musician who touched the hearts of many. Chester Bennington -- the lead vocalist for Linkin Park -- took his life and was found dead in his room on July 20, 2017 and his fans don’t seem to have gotten over the loss yet.
Bennington was found dead at his house in Palos Verdes Estates, California, by his housekeeper. It was the American musician Mike Shinoda who took to Twitter to say, “Shocked and heartbroken, but it’s true.”
On the second death anniversary Bennington’s fans took to Twitter to share their love for the singer whom they never seem to have forgotten.

Chester would want this to be shared today

A picture of the band was posted on Linkin Park's Instagram page today. The caption read, "Remembering Chester today. Feel free to share your favorite moment of Chester / LP in the comments below."
The singer was best known for his trademark high pitched voice that mesmerised a countless number of Linkin Park fans. The singer who had risen to glory after several obstacles and struggles, took to drugs early in life to deal with emotional distress.
While he was a part of two bands -- Sean Dowdell and His Friends? and Grey Daze -- it was his association with Linkin Park that kicked off his career. He became one of the iconic figures in music after the release of Linkin Park’s debut album.
