For Chester Bennington...

I am devastated to hear about Chester Bennington's passing. To say that Linkin Park has been a big influence for me is a huge understatement. From my YouTube beginnings with Linkin Park mashups, to my original music which has obvious LP influence, and the tone of my cover songs, you could tell how much of that inspiration came from the band. They were the first real band I saw live in concert. I've met a lot of people online through their community. The other day I even told one of those friends who met her husband through the community that maybe one day she would be bringing their child to see them in concert when she's old enough. I still listen to them on repeat sometimes. And I still buy their albums. They have been what's got me through really, really bad days and have not just influenced my music, but my life. I will miss him.
