Chester Bennington's friends remember late rocker's final days

Linkin Park fans worldwide showed their love and tribute for late singer Chester Benningt

The 12-year-old sang Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" alongside OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder on the morning show, and a lot of the audience was moved to tears. "He was even in one of our videos".

"It's an honor to perform this for my dad and Chester and to sing for them". The Linkin Park frontman was a close friend of Chris Cornell, who died by suicide May 18. It's the same song that Bennington performed at Chris Cornell's funeral. They also launched a tribute site where fans could discuss the singer and get information about suicide prevention.

Earlier this week, Slipknot's Shawn "Clown" Crahan spoke up to raise awareness for mental health in the wake of the tragic loss of Bennington and Cornell. "I had the great privilege of being a friend of Chris and invited to be a member of his family". Worry is a waste of time, I'm ok.' I always took what you said to heart. The opening line, "I don't like my mind right now" - like, that is me 24 hours a day. "It doesn't have to be". The singer has had a history of alcohol and drug abuse.

In the end, Linkin Park dominates the charts.

In May 2017, just months before Bennington's death, the band's final album "One More Light" was released, featuring a new pop-oriented sound and a guest turn from Kiiara.

Bennington's wife Talinda tweeted her gratitude towards Martin after his performance on Tuesday. Linkin Park has since cancelled their tour because of his death.
