Brian “Head” Welch (Guitarist for Korn) took to Facebook to talk about Bennington saying, “Honestly, Chester’s an old friend who we’ve hung with many times, and I have friends who are extremely close to him, but this is truly pissing me off! How can these guys send this message to their kids and fans?! I’m sick of this suicide shit! I’ve battled depression/mental illness, and I’m trying to be sympathetic, but it’s hard when you’re pissed! Enough is enough! Giving up on your kids, fans, and life is the cowardly way out!!!”
If you or someone you know is experiencing problems with depression, please call The National Suicide Hotline at 1(800) 273-8255.
