I visited the Night of the Living Dead Museum for first time on Saturday.

Coincidence or correlation?

Not really shocking considering their early hits were basically troubled emo kid anthems.

Were they good friends or something? I honestly don't know much about Linkin Park or anyone like that anymore since I stopped listening to them in 8th grade.

Bennington was a good singer, and writer. He will be missed.

The guy had 6 kids... I understand mental illness, but leaving behind children... pretty weak.

It's beyond weak. There are literally hundreds of thousands of musicians who would have killed to trade places with him. He got shit lucky to make it, talent or otherwise. Yes, he was excellent, but making it in music is a lottery, nearly impossible to win. He, like Cornell, and all the others, were granted gifts, which they shit on, by killing themselves. They leave behind people who are heartbroken.

I know that the type of mental illness that can drive you to suicide is unimaginably difficult. But a lot of people do unimaginably difficult things for their family. I would never say it's easy to "do what you have to" to not make that decision, but I'd never argue with someone who says leaving behind your kids is just about the fucking shittiest and most selfish thing you could ever do to them. I want to have compassion, but was crybaby wealthy rockstar's angsty life so tough that he had to fuck his own kids over forever? Fuck that.

I agree, but I think events like this also show that fame and fortune clearly aren't everything.

People want them, but then people who have them realize life still isn't perfect, and there are still demons to slay.

An excellent point. I look at a guy like Heath Ledger, who literally had it all. Talent, success, fame, wealth, a beautiful girlfriend(Michelle Williams), and yet was still so troubled that he basically killed himself. The thing about the music stars that are committing suicide, is that, to me at least, it's such a disrespectful slap in the face to the literally hundreds of thousands of people who have spent their lives writing, playing, performing, producing, and the rest, without ever sniffing any success in terms of a contract, or sales, or fame, or anything for that matter. Yes, Chester Bennington was good, and so was Chris Cornell, but in my time in the music business, I literally knew hundreds of people who were every bit as good as anyone famous, and never got a chance. Nope, not talking about myself, I am talking about people I knew in Arizona, Colorado, California, and many other places, that were better than I was, and never got a chance. This guy gets a winning lottery ticket and a decade and a half later, disrespects it. Just my angle on it.

Why is it bad to go out "on top?"

Maybe they have cancer or some crap...

You know like 85% of us are getting cancer. Think about it sometime.

Here's the conspiratorial side to both the Pennington and Cornell deaths: both were working to expose a huge pedophile ring in the music and entertainment industry.
