Linkin Park popped out in my high school, when my grandmother died and I experienced a lot of love problems (lol), and their music was something that I turned to those years. Sometimes memories aren't enough, music is what makes me remember. When I listen to a song, a memory isnt just like remembering events that happened. Music makes me feel everything I remember, makes it more real, as if its actually happening.

Linkin Part, most specifically Hybrid Theory album, makes me remember those years. It is the music that associates me with that time period, along with RHCP, Goo Goo Dolls, and Incubus which was famous in my school.

Dont like their recent music though, the genre didnt fit them.

RIP Chester, you will be missed.

Never got interested in his music, but this is obviously sad.

Lots of musicians with self-destructing ends.

In Greece, Sidiropoulos (heroin) and Asimos (suicide).

In Russia/USSR, Vysotsky (heroin and alcohol), Letov ("heart failure"),  Gorsheniov (heroin) and Tsoi (fell asleep while driving at high speed). And countless better known examples of English language musicians.

It's also not exclusively a late 20th century/rock star thing, think of Zdenka Rubinstein and Noel Mewton-Wood.

Hopefully when the ratio of ****ty / good psychologists shrinks down to a reasonable level, mental health screens will become as common as visiting your PCP.

The same day as Chris Cornell's birthday, who's a close friend of Chester.

It's sad, but it's also creepy.

Very true, quite eerie.
