Two gems lost in a couple of months. The whole world was just getting over the death of Audioslave vocalist, Chris Cornell when another death news of Linkin Park Frontman, Chester Bennington hit our ear. We can't immediately believe what we hear on the news, maybe just another celebrity death hoax, can't confirm anything unless we see the dead body, that's what we thought.
One by one we got answers to all our questions, and we were proven wrong. Indeed, the world lost another great artist. Chester Bennington hung himself to death on Thursday 20th July at a private residence in Los Angeles County. Just hours after LP released their latest music video "Talking to Myself", the news of Bennington's death circulated the media.
We all know Cornell and Chester were best of friends and Chester even wrote an open letter to Cornell after his demise.

The coincidence is, Chester hanged himself just like his close friend Chris Cornell and just when it would have been Cornell's 53rd birthday.

The 41 years old vocalist, regarded as one of the greatest is loved all over the world, and his death has left everyone numb. Sadness, disbelief, annoyed, painful, we felt everything, but now we can do nothing.
Chris Cornell once said,
"There's sadness to anyone that dies before their time, and specifically ones that seem to affect people in a positive way. It doesn't matter if it's Whitney Houston or a nameless, faceless person on the street. That's just as big of a tragedy for me."
And the death of these incredibly talented people brought us immeasurable tragedy.
Bennington's death is said to be an apparent suicide, but an investigation is going on; however, no additional details are available till now.
