The rock star was close friends with Soundgarden’s front man Chris Cornell, who committed suicide by hanging in May. Bennington’s death occurred on what would have been Cornell’s 53rd birthday. He spoke at his funeral service and penned a letter honoring Cornell in May. Bennington uploaded the letter to Twitter at the time.

"I dreamt about the Beatles last night. I woke up with [Beatles song] "Rocky Raccoon" playing in my head and a concerned look on my wife’s face," he wrote. "She told me my friend has just passed away. Thoughts of you flooded my mind and I wept. I’m still weeping, with sadness, as well as gratitude for having shared some very special moments with you and your beautiful family."

Bennington's Linkin Park was one of the best-selling rock bands ever. The band produced hit singles "In the End," "Faint" and "Crawling." Bennington also headed rock bands Dead by Sunday, Kings of Chaos Stone and Temple Pilots between 2013 and 2015.
