Linkin Park have premiered a new live video for their track “Sharp Edges.” The audio from this performance comes with the band’s new live album “One More Light Live,” which will be available on December 15. That release is dedicated to the late Chester Bennington.
Earlier today (December 6), TMZ ran a story about late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington and how he attempted to drown himself in November 2016 by tying himslef up and jumping in his pool. He was allegedly under the influence of a “large quantity” of alcohol and ended up changing his mind and breaking free. That suicide attempt was redacted in the autopsy report at the request of the singer’s widow Talinda, who has now slammed the website for publishing the story:
TMZ have shared the autopsy and toxicology report for Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, who tragically committed suicide by hanging on July 20. The report says the singer did have a small amount of alcohol in his system and that his blood was “presumptive positive” for MDMA in one test, but two subsequent tests did not detect the drug, meaning he was not under the influence of it at the time of his death. Police also found a prescription bottle of Zolpidem (generic Ambien) on his dresser, as well as a half full pint glass of Corona and an empty bottle of Stella Artois. Fingernail pieces were located underneath his iPhone and on a table in the bedroom, which Bennington’s wife Talinda said was related to a nervous tic he had. No suicide notes were found, but two apparent biographies, one handwritten and one typed, were found. Talinda says the journals were part of an ongoing outpatient treatment program for addiction. The vocalist had suffered with depression and suicidal thoughts in the past, and had previously taken anti-depressants, until he decided to stop for over a year. The housekeeper that found Bennington said he was not acting oddly the night before his death. You can read a full redacted report HERE.

As previously reported, Linkin Park were presented with the “Favorite Artist: Alternative Rock” award at the 2017 American Music Awards in Los Angeles, CA last night (November 19). However, the group apparently got kicked out after accepting the honor due to incorrect credentials and an issue with security. Mike Shinoda documented the whole thing on his Instagram story, which has been shared by Rock Feed:
