On July 20th 2017, a beloved musician that goes by the name of Chester Bennington
lead singer of a famous rock band called “Linkin Park” was found dead the cause suicide.
This has been bothering me a long time, I finally am going to give my thoughts on the late musician, but before I uncover the sad obvious things that everyone seems to ignore.
Let me tell you about the comments i heard because they all sounded exactly the same.
“It was the drugs” “It was because of drugs” “He did too many drugs”
Although drugs probably played a small role in it, it wasn’t the drugs, because it wasn’t an “overdose”. Secondly, he has played with drugs to deal with his demons for most of his life why would he lose control now.
He wasn’t a washed up star in someone’s basement shooting heroin at the time of his death, he was working.
In fact, if anyone pays attention to lyrics to song when they sing it, it usually is a message a story a window to the artist soul.
Chester’s latest release “Heavy” ft Kiiara was basically a cry for help, and if you take some time to listen to read the lyrics. He talks about wanting to let go.
So maybe “Heavy” ft Kiiara was Chester’s goodbye to us.
There is no way to know for sure.
But i urge everyone to stop jumping to conclusions especially when it’s regards to mental health. Pay close attention with what people are trying to say.
Cause maybe if someone read his lyrics and told him “Hey, are you good? is there something you need to get off your chest, is your demons coming back again?”
He might’ve been with us today, or maybe he did have someone say that to him and it wasn’t enough. Sometimes those things happen.
What is important is to try.
