He was born in Phoenix, Arizona, and was also the lead singer of bands Dead by Sunrise and cover group Bucket of Weenies.
Linkin Park’s albums Hybrid Theory and Meteora were both highly influential.
Bennington was good friends with singer Chris Cornell, who committed suicide earlier this year.
The Linkin Park man even sang Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah at the Audioslave front man’s funeral.
