“This place right here, this skull between my ears, that is a bad neighborhood. I should not be in there alone. … It’s crazy in here. … There’s another Chester in there that wants to take me down.”
Linkin Park lyrics reflect Chester’s real struggles: “We always have written about our lives.”

Chester Bennington’s cry for HELP! Linkin Park
In this video from an interview in Feb ’17 shows Chester Bennington expressing his cries for help. Hindsight is 20/20. At the time the interviewer and fans alike joked at his comments. Looking back, it’s clearly not a joking matter. Mental illness is a very serious issue, that is not to be over looked. It can take all forms. People you know may be going through similar situations. So next time you have someone pour their heart out to you, really listen to what they are saying. It may be a cry for help….. This is not a promo for WakingUpDad or WakingUpDad.net …. I am simply posting this as a long time fan of Chester and the group Linkin Park. I am just as shocked as everyone else and searching for answers as to why. In the video he clearly is telling us. We just didn’t listen. RIP Chester Bennington. You will be missed. Prayers to his family, wife and kids.
