Linkin Park is remembering their late frontman Chester Bennington across all of their digital platforms today in honor of the one year anniversary of his passing.

The band posted the following message to their followers:

“To our brother Chester,  

It has been a year since your passing—a surreal rotation of grief, heartbreak, refusal, and recognition.  And yet it still feels like you are close by, surrounding us with your memory and your light. Your one-of-a-kind spirit has authored an indelible imprint on our hearts—our jokes, our joy, and our tenderness.

Eternally grateful for the love, life, and creative passion you shared with us and the world.  We miss you more than words can express.


M, J, D, R, B
