    • “... Until the age of 16, he tried all possible types of alcohol and drugs. At 17, he moved to his mother, who was so shocked by his appearance of an emaciated drug addict, that he forbade him to leave the house. He continued to "break up", he continued to drink. Soon, as he himself admits, he turned into an “absolutely chronic alcoholic”. In subsequent years, alcoholism will still remind of itself. ”@Wikipedia
      We did not want to hurt anyone's feelings, but simply highlighted the information.

    • Yeah, check the data before writing slander. On the contrary, close ones were perplexed about the reason of suicide And stressed that there were no problems with drugs! Correct the article!

      • Chester was a mentally unbalanced person. Of course, earlier the use of drugs and alcohol made themselves felt. In one of the interviews on the radio, a couple of days before his death, he confessed to his problems, he said that he was afraid to be alone with himself, as if asking for help, but unfortunately no one heard

    All living - Good.

  9. You are just a yellow press. The great Chester Bennington did not die from alcoholism and drugs. Do not know, do not declare. Of course, I didn’t hold a candle, but the fact that Bennington is an alcoholic and a drug addict writes only a fucking yellow press that is the way you are.
