Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix spoke in an interview with Australia’s The Void and revealed his thoughts about death of Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington. He said:

“I have struggled with a lot of the same demons, a lot of the same issues -as Chester Bennington-.

I’m deeply saddened to know that it came to that for him in his life. It’s, like, God, it’s just fucking terrible. But the reality is we can try to find these things that we feel fill the whole in our soul and a lot of us struggle in trying to find that and sometimes it just gets too dark.

And that’s how it got for him and, unfortunately, it came to that. It’s incredibly sad. He left a lot of loving people behind. But through the story, it opened up a bigger dialogue.”

On July 20, 2017, Chester Bennington was found dead at his home in Palos Verdes Estates, California, having committed suicide by hanging.

Chester was very close with Chris Cornell, who himself committed suicide by hanging in May. Today would have been Cornell’s 53rd birthday.
