Ask Ben Burnley to tour with Linkin Park as their singer. RIP Chester Bennington.

On July 20, 2017, Chester Bennington, lead singer of Linkin Park, took his own life in a tragic suicide by hanging.  Chester is survived by his wife, 6 kids, and the remaining members of Linkin Park.

The devastation in the music community is astronomical.  Linkin Park, due to mourning the loss of their singer, has cancelled their remaining shows.  The fate of our favorite band is uncertain.  In order to do shows, they are going to need a singer.

After getting over the initial shock of Chester's death, I started to wonder what was in store for Linkin Park.  It would be very hard to "replace" Chester as a front man and no one ever really could.  Well,  there is one person who could do one heck of a job.  That person is Benjamin Burnley, of Breaking Benjamin.

I think it would be magic to hear Ben singing Linkin Park songs and reminding us of how much us as artists have to stick together.

I know that Ben just got a new band 2 years ago, and those guys are amazing.  Chown, Keith, Aaron, Jasen - we appreciate all of them just the same.  We don't want to split up Breaking Benjamin at all.  

We just ask that during his off time, or in this emergency situation, Ben can sing for Linkin Park shows.

Thanks for reading.  We love Linkin Park & Breaking Benjamin
