Linkin Park's Chester Bennington Talks About Committing Suicide

Linkin Park singer 'wanted to kill himself'
Alcoholism and the break-up of his marriage led Chester Bennington to consider suicide.
Linkin Park man speaks of alcohol problems Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington has revealed that he considered suicide after the break-up of his first marriage.

The singer, whose band's hits include Crawling and Numb, told Kerrang that he battled with alcoholism when his nine-year marriage came to an end in 2005.

Saying leaving his wife was "the easy part", Bennington said that he found it difficult to watch his ex-wife receive the money which he had worked hard to make over the years.

The frontman explained that he felt as though his life's work was being given away and started to drink so much that he could not live his normal life or leave his home.

"I wanted to kill myself. I could very easily not be the person who's sitting here right now. I could be dead. It was a horrible, horrible existence," he told the magazine.

Bennington also revealed that he has been drink-free for more than four years after attending rehab for his problem.

Recently, former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl told BBC Radio 1 that he always believed grunge icon Kurt Cobain would die young.
