Chester Bennington Laid to Rest in L.A.
Chester Bennington, the frontman of Linkin Park who committed suicide on July 20, has been laid to rest near his home in Palos Verdes, CA at a Saturday afternoon service at the South Coast Botanical Garden. Among those in attendance were musicians who had known Chester and played or toured with him and the band. The service included a full stage set up for musical tributes.
In a sweet touch, those who attended the funeral were given wristbands and tickets that were designed to look like concert passes.
The family decided to have a private funeral with close family and friends, but fans around the world have organized their own memorials for the Linkin Park singer. Founder of the band Mark Shinoda tweeted out a link to a big Google Doc full of information about more than 300 memorials all over the world to be held in honor of Chester Bennington. Some of these will be held at the same venues that the band would have played at before cancelling their tour following the death of their frontman.
