Chester Bennington's Linkin Park bandmates wrote an open letter to their late vocalist on Monday that touched on his inner demons and their uncertain future.
Bennington, who also fronted Dead by Sunrise and later joined Stone Temple Pilots, died by hanging at his Palos Verdes Estates home last week, the Los Angeles County coroner confirmed Friday. He was 41.
"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," said the letter, which was addressed to "Dear Chester" and posted on Facebook on Monday morning along with a new suicide-prevention website.
After two days of circling the FYF grounds at Exposition Park (and with, as one's hamstrings will surely remind you, one full day left to go), an after-party is probably the last thing on anyone's mind.
