Chester Bennington’s Widow Reveals Who Is ‘Healing’ Her


Evening Times reports, “Heartbroken Linkin Park fans from across Glasgow have come together to turn George Square into a moving memorial to frontman Chester Bennington.

The centre of the square was filled with flowers, pictures, candles and handwritten messages to the rocker who took his own life almost a month ago at the age of just 41.

Saturday’s event was created via Facebook by Ayrshire College student Caitlyn Young who wanted to see Glasgow come together to remember the popular musician in the way other cities have done the same in recent weeks.”

Blabbermouth reports, Linkin Park have earned the band 11 new platinum certifications from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), with some songs receiving their first platinum plaques, while others have now gone multi-platinum.

‘One Step Closer’, ‘Waiting For The End’ and ‘Leave Out All The Rest’ have gone platinum for the first time, while ‘What I’ve Done’, ‘Bleed It Out’, ‘Shadow Of The Day’, ‘New Divide’, ‘In The End’, ‘Numb’, ‘Burn It Down’ and ‘Numb/Encore’ with Jay Z all added multi-platinum status to their resumes.

As Blabbermouth notes, ‘What I’ve Done’ (from 2007’s Minutes To Midnight) has now gone five-times-platinum, making it the band’s most successful song – somewhat surprisingly in the face of mega-popular hits like ‘Numb’ and ‘In The End’.

Their latest album One More Light was their sixth of seven to go to the top of the charts, and saw them equal Metallica in terms of number one albums, just one behind Led Zeppelin and U2.

Bennington was laid to rest in a funeral service last month, and leaves behind his wife Talinda and six children.
