I always liked the lyric:

Probably not an accident that he chose this day to do it, as I've read that both Chester and Chris were good friends.

I also read that Chester had 6 kids. I feel terrible for them.

Wasn't a fan of the music, but agree that he could sing. I too was surprised to read that he was only 41 and had 6 children. :nyrexall:

RIP..Chester.

Heh, I wonder if U2 will play a Linkin Park tune at their next show like they seem to do whenever someone of note dies these days.

Chester's cover of Jane Says starts out really morose and shitty (partially because the recording is bad), and then suddenly he seems to get confident and the pipes kick in and he nails the whole second half. Better than Perry these days. :rockon:

Ik saw Lp three weeks ago.

I never really listened to them before, so I knew the name but not their music.

It was horrible. I thought he couldn't sing for shit. I kept thinking they must have forgotten tot turn on the autotune.

But that's that.

Sorry to hear he couldn't be happy after turning into a million seller artist from being a poor kid. And sorry to hear he leaves behind six kids

After years of hating them for no good reason (our jazz band teacher in high school made us play Steely Dan songs) I finally got really into them in the last 8 years or so. Great musician!
