Bennington, 41, killed himself July 20 in his Palos Verdes Estates home. He died on the birthday of his close friend Chris Cornell, lead singer of the rock bands Soundgarden and Audioslave, who committed suicide on May 18. Before Bennington’s death, Linkin Park had planned to go on tour starting July 27.
At the same time Bennington’s body was discovered, but before news of his death became public, Linkin Park released the music video for the newest single from its seventh studio album, “One More Light.” In “Talking to Myself,” the third track from the album, Bennington addresses his history of substance abuse from the perspective of his wife.
