A Memorial Page For Chester

Recommended Posts

Ever since the news broke about Chester, the world showed unfathomable support and poured their heart out for Chester. We thought it would be a nice idea to put together a page of all the musicians and stars who said things about Chester. Special thanks to lpliveusername for putting it all together.

 

Check out the page on the LPLive Exclusives Wiki.

 

Everyone from Rihanna to Jared Leto to David Draiman wrote about Chester, and seeing a lot of the messages is very heartwarming. Chester impacted so many lives and inspired so many people. Here are a few excerpts from the page:

 

Jared Leto:

 

So, uh, you know, it's been a really tough few days. You know, we said goodbye to somebody in recent days that was an amazing artist, and incredible human being, somebody who I know probably touched everybody in this entire amphitheater, and he touched me personally as well. You know, Chester... Ladies and gentlemen, make some noise for Chester. It's funny. I learned a lot watching him live his life. He taught me so much and when I close my eyes and think about him, I think about his face which was always smiling. I think about his heart which he wore on his sleeve. I think about how kind he treated me, my brother, Tomo, the band. I think about what he taught me about pursuing your dreams, pursuing your passion relentlessly, but as the same time being able to have an incredible family. You know, he had six incredible children as well. Every time we spoke, there wasn't a conversation we had that didn't include something about his family. And what you guys I think get a sense of from Linkin Park, and it certainly was an extension of how Chester lived his life, is Linkin Park; it's not just a band, it's a family. And the way they think about you guys, very similar to Thirty Seconds To Mars, it's a giant family and we try to make something more than just get onstage and play music. We try to connect and communicate in a way that's deep and meaningful, and I learned that from Chester. He did it night after night after night after night. And what about that voice, huh? What about that voice? That voice will live forever.

It's hard to say goodbye but remembering all the people he touched and helped is certainly a good way of starting to heal. Remember if you don't know where to go our how to heal, we're here to talk. Read our PSA we posted yesterday and join out LPLive Help Line chat so you can talk to others who are feeling the same way.

Seeing the outpouring of love from every corner of the world has been heartwarming. I think Chester's friends and families can take solace in knowing that he touched the lives of so many people.

I wish he could be here, even if it was only temporarily, just to see how loved he is...

Same here. All of this love from everyone, and artists across every genre. It's very bittersweet.

I'm glad he's finally being recognized for the amazing artist and person he was. It has always annoyed me how he was underrated in both the critic and public eye all these years.

Sorry guys, I tried to update it with the ones you posted here (+ a few more) and broke the page. :P

There's an image limit. I'll see what we can do about it.

Hello LPL, I haven't been on here in a couple weeks but I have been actively following your social media accounts since the tragedy.

 

I wanted to share a post from the band Issues. Issues sites Linkin Park as one of their major influences on their style of music and music in general. The lead singer's favorite band is Linkin Park and he, Tyler Carter, even played with Linkin Park on one of the songs they played at their Warped Tour surprise performance a couple years ago. It would really mean a lot to me if you included this in the memorial page. Thank you for all the hard work you guys have done over the years and continue to do, especially everything you have done since Thursday.

Great idea, I love watching/reading those tributes, it shows how loved Chester is and how big his and Linkin Park's legacy is.

You guys should consider READING the actual memorial page and searching it before posting ones that are already listed lol

Good advice. I did this yesterday before I posted my post about Issues.

 

I realize the post is a long one to read through it all so I understand both sides.
