    When depression is your demon, the loss of someone to suicide can have a devastating pull. Dan Reynolds gave a heartfelt tribute to Soundgarden's Chris Cornell at the 2017 BBMA'S after Chris died from suicide.
    Linkin Park frontman, Chester Bennington was Chris' best friend and he sang at the the funeral.
    Losing his best friend was too painful to bear and Chester killed himself on his best friend's birthday.
    At first, I was hoping that the news was some kind of fake news story. How could it be true? Chester left behind his wife, six childeren his friends, his band, his fans.

    Dan Reynolds was shaken by the news. I was concerned because Dan's away from home and hasn't been feeling well. Dan needed an injection for pain before his last concert but he remarked in his usual way that the show must go on.
    Dan later recorded a video encouraging people to treat others with more kindness after he had a predictable sleepless night.

    Dan Reynolds from Twitter. After a tearful and sleepless night following news of the suicide of Linkin Park's lead singer, Chester Bennington.💔
    "Hey, I just wanna say a quick couple of words. I was up most of last night with a lot of thoughts on my mind, so I wanted make a quick video.
    Bullying is not just a kid in school who pushes another kid down and tells him he's geeky, or he's fat, or ugly, or stupid, or nerdy.
    That's a form of bullying and it exists, and it's wrong. But, just as wrong, just as hateful, is sitting behind a keyboard and spewing hate at another person. Wether you disagree with someone's politics, their religion, their characteristics, how they look...
    When you type out those words and send them across cyberspace, you are bullying. You're doing more damage than you have any idea. We are all responsible for this. We have all made the mistake of relishing in someone else's hurt.
    Can we please stop?
    This is my plea.
    We are losing so many people to suicide.
    My question is, when is enough, enough?
    When will it create change?
    Can we stop bullying each other?
    Can we speak to each other with love?
    Can we speak to each other with kindness?
    We can still have opinions.
    We can still have thoughts.
    We can express those thoughts but can we do it with love?
    I believe we can.
    I hope we do."

    Hoping for a change.

    @yelahwilliams on Twitter said, "Artists are people compelled to bring beauty into a world that can be so dark. Makes sense then that artists are always conscious of darkness...
    And maybe at times more vulnerable by it? I don't know. Life can be relentless. Heart hurts for Chester's family/band/friends/fans."

    Perhaps the most fitting words come from Chester himself. Rest In Peace to another beautiful voice silence forever by depression.


    "🎵When you feel you're alone
    🎵Cut off from this cruel world
    🎵Your instincts telling you to run
    🎵Listen to your heart
    🎵Those angel voices
    🎵They'll see you to you
    🎵They'll be your guide
    🎵Back home where life leaves us blind
    🎵Love keeps us kind
    🎵It keeps us kind !
    🎵When you suffered it all
    🎵And your spirit is breaking
    🎵You're growing desperate from the fight
    🎵Remember your love
    🎵And you always will be
    🎵This melody will always bring
    🎵You right back home
    🎵When life leaves us blind
    🎵Love, keeps us kind!
    When life leaves us blind
    🎵Love keeps us kind!

    🎵Oh oh!
    🎵Oh oh!
    🎵Oh oh!"

    I've just cried for a whole night. As I listened to Linkin Park's songs for 7 years. Although not a huge super fan, just simply love them, love their songs... R.I.P. Chester Bennington

    My heart hurts, the world will never be the same without him in it and his incredible vocal. I feel so much sadness for his wife and kids.

    I'm not a big fan of "Linkin Park" and I don't know most of their songs. But there is one song, that I know and love: "New Divide".
    What a voice!
    Incredible...

    Chester was too young to die: It's so sad, and I'm sorry for his family and friends.

    Dan found the right words. There's nothing more to say...

    Rest in Peace now: Chester Bennington

    It's this almost indescribable thing that so many artists have to to cope with. I'm still trying to fathom the loss.
