Machine Gun Kelly Reacts To The Death Of Linkin Park Front-Man Chester Bennington

Mike Schinoda, Chester Bennington (Of Linkin Park) With Machine Gun Kelly

As the music world continues to react to the shocking news of Linkin Park front-man, Chester Bennington’s sudden passing, we thought we would share a post recently published by Chester’s One More Light tour mates Machine Gun Kelly. Machine Gun Kelly famously was heavily influenced by both Rock and Rap growing up. He was one of the few people lucky enough to go from becoming a fan of Linkin Park at age 11 to later befriending them as a recording artist. Below you will find his personal letter to Chester he wrote on social media. (Explicit language)

“my heart hurts in ways i never thought it could. 💔💔 i heard the news when i was driving in the car with my daughter and i couldn’t even finish the drive. i pulled over and lost my shit. i remember watching u perform “crawling” stripped down with just mike shinoda playing the keys in Poland when we did that show together the other week, and your voice spoke to my soul. im re-living that moment now because that’s how u deserve to be remembered: a voice for those who wanted to scream out, who had pain and no way of expressing it. u were that for me since 11 years old and i had the honor to become friends with u and share the stage with you, but i never got to say thank you. You guys invited me on tour this summer and it was the happiest I’ve felt in my career, I’m sad to not be able to see it happen, but mostly just sad for music, the linkin park family, and the fans – u were one of the greatest frontmen of a band to ever live and i just want u, wherever u are, to feel loved and to be happy. thanks for everything Chester. love.”
