I'm sorry. I really wish I had a little more time to hash out all my feelings about the suicide of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington in more detail than the bullet I wrote up on Friday, but I cannot.
I can simply reiterate how much his band's music meant to me and how genuinely I was affected by Chester's passion and openness. In honor of that, I'd like to share a list from Rolling Stone highlighting what they feel to be Linkin Park's 12 Essential Songs.
I wholeheartedly agree with this list. Not that there aren't other great ones, but this is a good starting point for anyone new to LP's music. Here's hoping no one has been that sheltered. But I gotta admit a little envy at the prospect that there is someone out there that might be listening for the first time and are just about to have their mind blown.
