Linkin Park 發佈官方聲明悼念主唱 Chester Bennington
「Our Hearts Are Broken」。
距離 Chester Bennington 離世已經過去了四天，Linkin Park 其他幾位成員終於打破沉默，在不久前通過官方社交媒體主頁發佈了一封公開信，以此來悼念他們的主唱。「我們悲痛萬分，我們至今仍然沒辦法接受這個事實，這一切發生的太突然了。」，他們在公開信中寫到：「你（Chester Bennington）打動了這世界上太多的人，多到你自己可能都不知道。」
Our hearts are broken. The shockwaves of grief and denial are still sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened.
You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realized. In the past few days, we’ve seen an outpouring of love and support, both public and private, from around the world. Talinda and the family appreciate it, and want the world to know that you were the best husband, son, and father; the family will never be whole without you.
Talking with you about the years ahead together, your excitement was infectious. Your absence leaves a void that can never be filled—a boisterous, funny, ambitious, creative, kind, generous voice in the room is missing. We’re trying to remind ourselves that the demons who took you away from us were always part of the deal. After all, it was the way you sang about those demons that made everyone fall in love with you in the first place. You fearlessly put them on display, and in doing so, brought us together and taught us to be more human. You had the biggest heart, and managed to wear it on your sleeve.
Our love for making and performing music is inextinguishable. While we don’t know what path our future may take, we know that each of our lives was made better by you. Thank you for that gift. We love you, and miss you so much.
Until we see you again,
