In a Facebook post, Welch wrote, "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!"

After the singer committed suicide on Thursday (20Jul17), sales of the band's back catalogue went up by a staggering 5,332 per cent in the USA alone.

As for Fergie's involvement in the group, they said their focus for the past four years has been on the graphic novel, while Fergie has been focusing on her solo career - but "Fergie's music is dope".

ET has learned new details with regard to Chester Bennington's tragic death.

Linkin Park filmed their Carpool episode less than a week before Chester's death. He was reportedly disturbed after the sudden demise of his close friend Chris Cornell in May this year. Linkin Park continued to explore a wider variation of musical types in their fourth album in 2010, "A Thousand Suns", layering their music with more electronic sounds and beats. Bennington spoke openly about his struggles with drug and alcohol abuse, and it came out in his lyrics.

The Grammy-winning band released an album titled One More Light in a couple of months ago.

He tweeted shortly after the news of Chester's death was announced: "Shocked and heartbroken, but it's true. Our thoughts go out to all those affected". In 2005, the album was certified as the decade's best-selling debut album and their subsequent studio albums made the band one of the most highly recognized artists in the world.

In an open letter posted to Variety, he wrote of Cornell: "I'm still weeping, with sadness, as well as gratitude for having shared some very special moments with you and your handsome family". And just 24 hours after reports first emerged of the singer's untimely passing, six vile messages began appearing on Talinda Bennington's Twitter page. The Soundgarden singer's birthday was also on July 20.
