I think it has to be! If I'm not mistaken they are still overseas on the OML tour
are you fucking kidding me?!
It's real. I still can't believe it.
Something has been taken from deep inside of me
A secret I've kept locked away
No one can ever see
Wounds so deep they never show
They never go away
Like moving pictures in my head
For years and years they've played
If I could change I would
Take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could
Stand up and take the blame I would
If I could take all the shame to the grave
To think that this band has brought me through so much crap in my own life, that the lead singer couldn't get through his own personal mess...........worst day in the history of LP and for this fan. This is beyond inconceivable and my thoughts and prayers are with Chesters kids and wife, and the rest of Linkin Park
THIS CAN'T BE REAL!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
SOMEONE TELL ME THIS IS CRUEL JOKE!!!!
I'm going to be sick...this will take me so long to process. I could not possibly feel more disgusted by this.
Oh, God...17 years I've looked up to this man. I'm so devastated by this.
I pray to God that his wife and ex-wife, and their children, are okay. I also can't imagine how the rest of the band feels. Waking up to news of your friend's death by suicide...I've never been stricken by a celebrity death this way.
No, no, no....
I was planning to watch the new video long before seeing the news. I'm devastated at this point. How could this happen to a singer that still had many more years to come and keep making music with the band? This band will always be my favorite no matter what and I hope they can continue making music.
My sincere thoughts go to Chester's family and Linkin Park, I feel terribly sad for this, but I'll keep all the messages of their songs in my mind and I hope this can also serve as an inspiration to overcome the hard times that I may have in the future just like the band has helped me overcome hard times in the past with their songs.
I just watched this music video for the first time.
Let's just say I am a train wreck after that.
It's impressive how it got nearly 20 Million views in just 2 days, but it's very sad to think that it is most likely to be their last music videos.
I can't bring myself to watch this. Maybe one day I will.
I feel there is some very dark conotation to their songs now, mostly for OML songs. After searching for the meaning of those lyrics we can feel some very dark feelings Chester had when the songs were written and that is clearly seen in songs like Nobody Can Save Me and Halfway Right. I already came back to their songs again after a short 2-day break to think about all this. What I still find hard to accept is the idea that OML is very likely to be their last studio album. After listening more deeply to the songs, I now understand how the vocal interplay between Mike and Chester is such a big feature of LP sound and after Chester passed away it will be impossible to replace him and the music would lack its essence without him. If they decide to keep making music I will buy the albums, but always feeling that there is a missing piece that is essential for the whole music to make sense.
I was glad I saw the band on this tour , and that I loved OML so much.
This video is special
Yeah, that was a hard thing to watch. i still can't get my head wrapped around it. Everyone, including Chester, seemed so happy and excited.
What I desperately hope was that Chester was happy at least at times on his final tour, and that he realised that millions of people loved him even if he didn't love himself
It's worse knowing it was released the same morning the news broke. They all look so happy and enjoying themselves. I think thats how we should remember them all and chester especially
I said this same thing in the Shoutbox last night. So sad this is released and then 2 hours later he is gone.
Already surpassed Good Goobye in views and should pass Heavy in views by the end of next week.
Fiore did a great job on the video, Chester looked energetic and he did seem happy during this tour. He promoted the album, he met fans, he din't look sad at all. I hope we see some unreleased material in the future.
I've just watched the video for the first time (been away for 6 days) and it's uplifting but at the same time so depressing and my mind is saying that the news isn't true, no way he isn't here anymore. They all seemed so happy and Chester was his usual self. At least this video is a nice way of saying goodbye.
TTM is one of my favorite tracks off OML. Despite the sad and cruelly ironic circumstances that followed the release of the video, watching it is therapeutic to me.
This video is the way I'd prefer to remember Chester: happy and in his element. Doing what he loved best and interacting with his fans who he adored.
This is how I want to remember Chester. We need to talk about all the good Chester did instead of just focusing on the sad parts. People must never forget what an extraordinary human being he was.
