    Yeah a shame. Had demons though so while unexpected it was not a surprise. Said in the music forum Obits thread that LP's first two albums were golden and although they went to shit after that, Meteora and Hybrid Theory will always be two albums that defined my adolescence.

    Yeah brilliant albums, I was a big fan of the collaboration album with Jaz Z as well.
    I must say when I read suicide I wasn't shocked at all.
    I heard their new single earlier in the year and it was a big disappointment.

    Apparently fans had been shitting on them heaps for their latest album, and it was a commercial flop. I think Bennington even had a shot at the fans for it.

    I reckon that his voice had blown out hence the new style.

    Also it was Chris Cornell's birthday and his death hit him hard..

    I started balling when they showed the footage of her being lead out in a wheel chair by Raelene Boyle for the 2000 Olympics, such a true champion was Betty, was modest of her achievements and never complained when illness took its toll, I hope some of the young and upcoming sports people will take a leaf out of her book.

    I'm never sure where to post so I posted in the in memoriam section of the Movie and Music thread, a sad loss, I grew up at time where his songs got plenty of air play on radio and he was also one of my mothers favourite artists.
