Linkin Park's Dave "Phoenix" Farrell, Brad Delson, Rob Bourdon, Joe Hahn, and Mike Shinoda are still grieving the loss of their co-member and vocalist, Chester Bennington, who died in apparent suicide [VIDEO] on July 22. He was only 41 years old when he was found lifeless at his private residence in Los Angeles.

Death of two rock icons

Reports revealed that the rock icon was home alone when he took his own life by hanging himself. His passing came after his close friend and co-singer, Chris Cornell, died by the same method on May 18. Chester Bennington was among those who were greatly affected by the death of the Soundgarden vocalist.

In his tribute letter to his colleague, the Linkin Park vocalist credited Chris Cornell for his influence on his music career. Chester Bennington even sang at his co-singer's funeral service.

Before the public could even move on from the sudden death of Chris Cornell, music fans were stunned when reports on Chester Bennington's suicide made headlines. In just two months, the music industry has lost two great artists who have inspired countless people all over the world.

Chester and his struggle with depression

Both artists have always been open about their battle with depression in the past. In fact, the Linkin Park frontman, in his final interview, opened up on how he almost gave up and thought about killing himself.

He also shared what their new album, "One More Light," meant to him and the rest of the members.

Chester Bennington said the release has given them hope to move forward from their struggles in the past. He specifically emphasized that there is "hopefulness" and a "sense of moving on" in the album that was inspired by their own experiences.

Their songs "Heavy" and "Halfway Right" were co-written by the late Linkin Park vocalist. "Instinctively I want to make the river flow where I want it to flow and I want to make the water be calm when I want it to be calm. It takes a lot of patience to just let things happen as they’re happening and just ride it out," he said of the album.

Meanwhile, the remaining members of Linkin Park were heartbroken over the vocalist's passing. They even acknowledged Chester Bennington's struggle with depression. "We're trying to remind ourselves that the devil who took you away from us were always part of the deal," the band wrote.

They added Chester Bennington has left a void that will never be replaced by anyone.

"While we don't know what path our future may take, we know that each of our lives was made better by you," the members said.

A month after the singer's death, the five-member rock band announced their plan to hold a special event for the late co-member. In a post published on Tuesday, Dave Farrell and Linkin Park promised to release the details of the upcoming event to be held in Los Angeles.

It is worth noting that Linkin Park cancelled their concert tour and has not held performances since Chester Bennington died.
