Linkin Park Pays Tribute to Chester Bennington on 1-Year Anniversary of His Death

“Your one-of-a-kind spirit has authored an indelible imprint on our hearts.”

By //Music

This past Thursday marked the one year anniversary of Chester Bennington‘s death. To pay tribute to the musician, his Linkin Park bandmates took to social media to share kind words and memories of the beloved frontman.

“To our brother Chester, it has been a year since your passing — a surreal rotation of grief, heartbreak, refusal, and recognition,” the band wrote on Twitter. “And yet it still feels like you are close by, surrounding us with your memory and your light. Your one-of-a-kind spirit has authored an indelible imprint on our hearts — our jokes, our joy, and our tenderness.”

The band’s bassist, Dave “Phoenix” Farrell, also shared a tribute on his Instagram account. “I still struggle to try and eloquently express what you mean to your family, your friends, your fans… and to me,” he wrote. “There is so much that I feel, and that I could say, and that I would want to say, and that I don’t know how to say… but one thing I know for certain, is that you are loved, and you are missed.”

Bennington committed suicide on July 20, 2017, the same day as close friend Chris Cornell’s birthday. Cornell had also committed suicide just two months prior. Take a look at the tributes below.

Chester, In the past year, there hasn’t been a day that has gone by that I haven’t thought of you. I miss you, and it still hurts to not have you here. I chose not to speak at your memorial because I couldn’t formulate the words to adequately express how I felt… I chose not to speak at the Celebration of Life Concert honoring you because I knew I’d struggle to even be able to speak at all. And today, a year after your passing, I still struggle to try and eloquently express what you mean to your family, your friends, your fans… and to me. There is so much that I feel, and that I could say, and that I would want to say, and that I don’t know how to say… but one thing I know for certain, is that you are loved, and you are missed. Be Well My Friend, Dave
