Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington dies a day after he liked a tweet about Eminem and death

The world is mourning the death of Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington, who died in an apparent suicide at his residence in Los Angeles Thursday, July 20. He was only 41.

I myself am deeply saddened by this news about Chester Bennington's death. Their songs were part of many people's childhood, including mine, and I can still remember, we even used the intro part of their biggest hit "In The End" in our group presentation for an inter-class choral recitation during college.

As news of his death takes over Twitter, I came across the last tweet that Chester
liked using his Twitter account (@ChesterBe). A day before he died, someone with the handle @AahladCom wished if Chaz (his nickname) could do a collaboration with Eminem, Machine Gun Kelly and Kendrick Lamar, and if that happens, all will die happy, the guy said in his tweet. Perhaps Chester loved the idea, and he liked it.

The guy was ecstatic over Chester liking his tweet that day, expressed that he's done with his life now and he can now expect Chester's collab with Eminem.

A day later, Chester died and a collaboration with Eminem is obviously not going to happen. -
