Bennington was close friends with the late rocker Chris Cornell and sang a rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" at his funeral. The singer leaves behind his six children, and wife, model Talinda Ann. It would have been Mr Cornell's 53rd birthday the same day Bennington killed himself. The lead singer of Soundgarden committed suicide earlier this year and was found by a bodyguard on May 18, 2017. The band, which started in Agoura Hills, gained fame with their debut album "Hybrid Theory" in 2000.

In 2004, the band collaborated with Jay-Z on the EP "Collision Course".
