Korn’s Jonathan Davis speaks about Chester Bennington

Korn’s Jonathan Davis speaks about Chester Bennington
When Korn’s Head spoke about the suicide of Chester Bennington he let grief override his compassion, but now Korn’s Jonathan Davis has given a more caring view. The singer spoke to Kerrang and explained:
“I understand depression and everything he was going through… It’s always the seemingly happy, sweetest ones that are hurting the most. It’s a terrible disease that can make things feel unbearable. When I found out what had happened, I didn’t even have the words… I loved his smile. I always looked forward to seeing him. If we were playing at a festival together, he’d make a point to come and find me, which I always appreciated. Chester’s was an amazing journey to watch. I loved that kid.”
Then he looked at how Chester affected the world: “His lyrics hit home and were very relatable. On a lyrical level, Chester touched upon a lot of things that people feel, and when you experience that with music, it’s a release. When you’re helping so many people, you can sometimes forget about yourself. We’re like superheroes to kids that are hurting – we’re supposed to be the living proof that things will get better. There should be more Chesters in the world.”
