A interview thought to be Chester Bennington’s last before he committed suicide has been distributed, a powerful and grievous read that proposes the Linkin Park artist had really turned a corner when it went to his gloom.
Gotten by The Mirror and led by Will Lavin, the meeting sees Bennington demand: “I went to a point in my life where I resembled, ‘I can either simply surrender and fucking pass on or I can fucking battle for what I need.’ And I battled for what I needed.”
He discusses having gotten through the “darkest time” in his life, the band’s most recent record demonstrating “helpful” for him and containing a “cheerfulness” and feeling of “advancing”.
Bennington examines how the collection, One More Light, combined with treatment, helped him move past his “evil spirits” and acknowledge that life may not generally be great.
It remains as a stark update that gloom is an extreme, strong brute and that individuals can be stating one thing apparently and feeling another inside.
Bennington says the emotions he’d been battling with, including not by any means needing to get up in the morning feeling like “the world is loaded with poop”.
Tributes have poured in for the artist from rappers and rockers alike finished the previous day (counting kindred nu metal planner Fred Durst), Bennington’s body having been found at his home close LA on Thursday morning.
Linkin Park DJ Joe Hahn headed there on Thursday evening, while guitarist Mike Shinoda tweeted: “Stunned and shattered, however it’s valid. An official articulation will turn out when we have one.”
