When I heard the news about Chester, I actually immediately thought of the only Linkin' Park superfan I know.

I actually had no idea he was so close w/ Chris Cornell. I will be honest, I always thought Linkin Park's popularity was primarily due to it being the only reasonably good band during a time when rock music was in an absolute desert, but still, they were the closest thing to Nirvana and Pearl Jam those coming of age in the early 2000s had, and this hits them hard. Even hearing about Chris Cornell was sad, and Soundgarden was my least favorite grunge band.

Anyway, that's all I have to say about that.
