This hasn’t been the best of summers following the passing of both Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington from suicide. For those who know someone suffering from mental illness and depression, please know it’s ok to seek help whether from a friend or calling the National Suicide Prevention hotline (1-800-273-8255). KoRn frontman Jonathan Davis is known for promoting suicide awareness and many others have expressed that it’s ok to not be ok, and you’re not alone.
After cancelling their scheduled summer tour, pouring their hearts out on social media and reminiscing on the early days, the surviving Linkin Park members have revealed they are working on a special public event in memory of their frontman. It has been one month since the singer’s passing and the band are finding ways to move forward with their career.
They shared the following statement:
“Just wanted to say thank you to all our fans around the world for the tremendous outpouring of love, which has strengthened our spirit during this incredibly difficult time.
The five of us are so grateful for all of your support as we heal and build the future of Linkin Park.
We are working on a special public event in Los Angeles to honor Chester’s memory, and look forward to sharing details with you soon.
Peace and love,
Phoenix and Linkin Park”
