Chester struggled with drug and alcohol addictions at multiple stages during his lifetime. He was also molested by an older man, when he was a kid. He was quite open about the above troubles that he had.
Linkin Park first gained popularity with their debut album ‘Hybrid Theory’, which was released in 2000. Ever since then the band has been experimenting with different genres and their most recent album ‘One More Light’ reached #1 spot on Billboard Top 200.
This is a really sad day in the music industry as we have lost the voice behind tracks like ‘In The End’, ‘Somehwere I Belong’, ‘Numb’, ‘What I’ve Done’ and many more. Chester will always be remembered for his distinct voice.
