And each regret and each goodbye was a mistake too great to hide

It happened once again. Yesterday, I heard of Chester Bennington's death. Even though death is always a tragic event, there are some conditions that make it even more so: dying at a young age, committing suicide or having a specific connection to the deceased, to name a few. Well, Chester, I think they call that a trifecta!

"And you were there at the turn, waiting to let me know"

Chester Bennington was 41 and committed suicide. He was famous for being the singer of Linkin Park and that's how I would like to remember him today. I've mentioned Linkin Park before in an article called Le début d'une histoire sans fin. I first listened to this band when I was 12 and have never stopped ever since! The thing is, Linkin Park played a central role in my English learning. I must admit listening to their songs was way more fun than doing my homework for my old-fashioned fiftysomething teacher.

For now, I'd just like to share the most emblematic songs of the band.

"Don't know what you're expecting of me"

There's no doubt about it: Numb is the most famous one! It is also the first one I heard and as you know, first times always matter.

 "I've put my trust in you, pushed as far as I can go"

 "So let mercy come and wash away..."

 "So give me reason to prove me wrong"

"We can't wait to burn it to the ground" 

I was 20 when the song was released, my teenage years were clearly behind me but still, this track may be my favorite one!
