RIP Chester Bennington

Postby FCBayernNews » Fri Jul 21, 2017 11:10 am

Almost exactly two years, in mid-July 2015, Linkin Park played in Shanghai. The Bayern München squad were also staying in the bustling Chinese financial centre at the same time: two different but equally internationally successful groups who met as they were touring Asia.

And so Linkin Park bassist and football lover David Farrell came to the stadium to watch FC Bayern’s 4-1 win against Valencia. That first, coincidental encounter turned into regular contact. Jérôme Boateng went to Linkin Park concerts in Germany. The band and the players also organised charity projects over social media, including a competition to raise funds for the nonprofit organization Music for Relief. The winner from the USA was invited to a match at the Allianz Arena, while the band members regularly donned Bayern kits, particularly bassist Farrell and singer Chester Bennigton.     

As recently as May of this year, Bennington and Farrell sent a video message congratulating Bayern on their fifth successive Bundesliga title. Both wore Bayern kits with the number 12. Jérôme Boateng and Thiago thanked them, and there were even discussions at the club about asking the band to play a few songs at the Allianz Arena.

On Thursday of this week, Chester Bennington died in Los Angeles at the age of 41. FC Bayern München has lost a friend.

I have the impression that they had performed at the AA ...

Bennington struggled with drug and alcohol addictions at various times during his life. He said he had been sexually abused as a child and was homeless for months before the band found fame [source]

Sad day when a man's demons prove to be to strong to overcome, hopefully he can find his peace....
Welcome to the Allianz Arena....

I wasn't aware that Chris Cornell (his friend) also committed suicide!

Honestly it's the worst I've felt since the game that shall not be mentioned. Been sat at work all day with various songs in my head and going to have a marathon of listening to their songs tonight. Forgot about the Bayern connection until I read this. Nice touch by the club to put something up on their website.

Wow. At least those memories will be with you forever. Was always my dream to see them live. Just finished listening to Minutes to Midnight (probably my favourite as it's the first one I bought when I first discovered their music, being 14 years old when it was released). Four albums to go and I won't sleep until I've listened to them all.
