Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington has died.

We regret to report today that Chester Bennington, vocalist of Linkin Park, has died.

TMZ is reporting today that Bennington committed suicide following struggles with drugs and alcohol. From TMZ:

Law enforcement sources tell us the singer hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County. His body was discovered Thursday just before 9 AM.

Chester was married with 6 children from 2 wives.

Here at the Allspark we don’t normally report on celebrity news, but as Linkin Park’s music has been featured in multiple Transformers films in recent years we’ve come to feel they’re part of our family. As well, fans will remember the special Linkin Park limited edition release G1 Soundwave from a few years ago.

Our thoughts are with Mr Bennington’s family, friends, and bandmates at this time.
