He gave this heartbreaking interview one month ago where he talked about feeling happier than ever and at peace.
Bennington added: “There’s more peace and a quiet because I’ve earned that. I’ve worked for it and I have tools…
“We’re all really happy and stoked about what we’ve created and we’re stoked about how we’ve grown as a band and as friends.
“Making this record was not only great for us creatively but great for us as people too.”
The interview was done for German music magazine and site BILD Musik.
At the end Bennington made a plea for fans to realise that their heroes also have feet of clay.
Bennington ended the interview by saying: “I think it’s important for people to realise that we’re actually human beings, too.”
Throughout the 40-minute chat he and bandmate Mike Shinoda talk candidly about their lives and Bennington opens up about his drug use and previous troubles.
Shinoda has just revealed how he is “heartbroken” at the loss of his friend and bandmate.
Bennington said in the interview: “You can elevate your consciousness, your spirituality by just acknowledging there is a problem. Once you do that you’ve created space between you and that problem. Even if it’s just a moment you have a second to reflect and breathe on it.
