Swipe to peel back Chester's layers- Chester Fucking Bennington.
Words can't express adequately how it hurts to hear that you're gone, man. You were the soundtrack to my childhood- whether I liked it or not. My older sister got locked in my room one day and broke the door down to get out, but we never replaced it, so I only had a curtain for the longest time... and my older brother, across the hall with his door always open, only had one CD -Hybrid Theory- which he played on repeat all night, every night, for two years before I finally broke it. But those songs man, they're burned into me like no other songs are. I might have gotten sick of them over the years, but it felt good to listen to 'em again while I made this little tribute to someone who helped countless troubled youths through some tough times. And so many of the lyrics felt so painfully relevant now it brought tears to my eyes. But one line sticks out more than the rest to me- 'The sound of your voice, painted on my memory, even if you're not with me, I'm with you'- and it's got me wondering, what would the soundtrack to my life be? I could name a few, and you know a song by you would have to make it in there somewhere, and in the end I'm grateful for the sounds you gave us. You own your choices. I respect your decision to do whatever you may have done, and you'll always be a hero in my eyes. It was a hard life for you, but a beautiful one, and I hope you found somewhere you belong. Goodnight, sweet prince.
