According to reports, the Linkin Park frontman made provisions in his will so his extended family can continue to see each other regularly.

Bennington was a father to Jaime (21) from his relationship with Elka Brand and adopted her son, Isaiah (20); Draven (15) with first wife Samantha Olit, and Tyler (11) and twins Lilly and Lila (six) with second wife Talinda.

In his will, Bennington requested that his kids' mothers and guardians "encourage and allow my children to visit with one another" and their extended relatives "on a regular and ongoing basis, so that my children know that they have a large and loving family".

Linkin Park established The One More Light Fund in honor of Chester Bennington.


That's because the band's one-night-only show will be streamed live free of charge to fans on Friday, Oct. 27 starting at 7:45PM PT via Linkin Park's YouTube channel. The concert is sold out, and money raised from the tickets purchased will be sent to Music for Relief's One More Light Fund.

He said: "I had gone to Rick Rubin as a source of guidance". "We haven't gone out together in public, we haven't played-we haven't gone onstage ..."

As you can see, there is quite the talent pool lined up to support their brethren in Linkin Park and it's a sign of the love and respect that many held for Bennington in the music industry. "Not because they want to see a show, there's a cathartic experience that needs to happen and it'll inform what you guys are doing'".
