    Damn... Linkin park made some great music.

    I am guessing the band will disband now. My condolences to his family and also why did he commit suicide?

    most likely depression, but it says he struggled with drug problems...

    Ahh i see. Depression and drugs...hmmm. Did he generally have depression or did it occur as a result of the drug use? I am just curious.
    I seriously hate depression. A disease of the mind and it takes so many people as its victims.

    RIP.

    Turn of the century LP was the best, after that it went downhill.

    Fuck. They got me into music. Was a HUGE part of my childhood and he will be greatly missed in my heart.
    Also he was a ex heroin addict so drug use is probable.

    He was abused when he was younger. Abuse usually leads to depression, and depression leads to drug and alcohol abuse, and then it's just a downward spiral from there.

    It sucks that he's gone, they were part of what lead me to the path of rock/metal, and a huge inspiration. R.I.P Chester and my condolences for the band and their families.

    Rest in Peace ... also, Chris Cornell's suicide is what drove him over the edge.

    Between insane and insecure
    No matter how people feel about their music, there's no doubt that he was icon that can't be replaced. May he and Chris find peace in the afterlife.
    There is one extremely sad note that I would to leave, today was Chris Cornell's birthday...


    On the unfortunate topic of suicide, I would like to include the Suicide prevention hotline numbers from around the world
    http://www.suicide.org/international-suicide-hotlines.html
    Please, if you are feeling any kind of suicidal thoughts or behaviors, call them. They can help and people do care. You can get help and they will help you get through this if you let them.

    TMZ reported that he had suicidal thoughts ever since he was abused as a kid

    Why marrying and having 6 children when he thinks about suiciding from the beginning? Seems kinda unfair towards his family in my opinion.
