[USA], July 21 (ANI): American rock band Linkin Park on Saturday paid tribute to its frontman Chester Bennington by posting a heartfelt note on singer's first death anniversary.
"It has been a year since your passing-a surreal rotation of grief, heartbreak, refusal, and recognition. And yet it still feels like you are close by, surrounding us with your memory and your light. Your one-of-a-kind spirit has authored an indelible imprint on our hearts-our jokes, our joy, and our tenderness. Eternally grateful for the love, life, and creative passion you shared with us and the world. We miss you more than words can express," the band wrote in an Instagram post.
Linkin Park's frontman was found dead at his home last year on July 20. His death was ruled as suicide by hanging.
Band's Bassist Dave Phoenix Farrell, in a post on Instagram wrote, "In the past year, there hasn't been a day that has gone by that I haven't thought of you. I miss you, and it still hurts to not have you here. I chose not to speak at your memorial because I couldn't formulate the words to adequately express how I felt... I chose not to speak at the Celebration of Life Concert honoring you because I knew I'd struggle to even be able to speak at all. And today, a year after your passing, I still struggle to try and eloquently express what you mean to your family, your friends, your fans... and to me. There is so much that I feel, and that I could say, and that I would want to say, and that I don't know how to say... but one thing I know for certain, is that you are loved, and you are missed."
Last October, the surviving members of the band performed a tribute concert for the singer at the Hollywood Bowl. (ANI)
